    I'm wondering if it's safe to load a game in Wiiscrubber and delete the update partition? Or shrink it? Or change it any way? Instead of just loading the .iSO and then hitting "Scrub"... can we modify it first and then scrub it?

    Also, if I want to skip the opening videos, like in Ghostbusters, which has about 10 opening screens before you can actually play the game, is it safe to open it in Wiiscrubber and delete the .bik files before you scrub it?

    Any feedback is appreciated. Thanks.

    Well, it will be "safe" but many things could prevent it from working properly. Deleting the update partition should work fine.

    Yeah, I just tried it out. I replaced the .bik files with a blank .bik file. I got to the Ghostbusters "loading" screen then it threw an error saying it was an unofficial build, blah blah blah. So, the blank .bik files no worky.

    I wonder if there's any way to make it work. I'm not a programmer by any means, so maybe someone smarter than me can weigh in on a way to cut out the intro screens.

    Unofficial build. lol that weird, we replace blank .biks in Rock Band and it works fine. Probably because its the loading screen/has a CRC in it.

    Your wii will not brake if you attempt to play a modified disk. The game will just cease to work if crucial components are removed from the disks infrastructure.

    Dude, can you get a screen of that error? I think that's just hilarious.

    Can the ios of new games be patched with wiiscrubber so that it plays for modchips?
