Hi to all i am keen to find out from a fellow mate on a private site on how he done it, but he managed to compress a Wii Game......London Taxi Rush Hour and a Hampster one all the way down to 80Mb even though scrubber said 200-250mb on each, this save A LOT of bandwith etc but it is amazing how someone can download it for 4+GB and then make it only 80mb......will add in how he done it when i find out

Um...all you have to do is select the 'no headers' option with 1.2 onwards.

Smallest so far is Wiichess at 26 Meg after removing the update partition, Baloon Pop comes in at 34 Meg or so. The usual DDI 'game' e.g. The Kawasaki games etc. come out at between 70 meg and 110Meg or so.

Sorry dont know anything about scrubbing etc apart from seeing a few games massively undersized on NG which are obviously these, but just a question, do the games return to their original 4.5 gig when uncompressed ? if not would it be possible to make a multigame disk ? sorry if the questions are stupid lol but i just wanted to know.

From what I know, There is no way to load multigames and if the games are compressed this much, there will be issues when the IOS37 becomes activated in the firmware.

*SIGH*

I sometimes wonder why I bothered writing a FAQ.

IOS37 fixes the Trucha bug

WiiScrubber does not use the Trucha Bug (unless you modify individual files or use the Trucha scrubbing option)

Scrubber just 'scrubs' the cack data out of the iso which has the effect of making the ISO compressable. The ISO is still 4.3 Gig after scrubbing.

I am sorry for being misinformed. From what I gathered, selecting the no headers option meant using the Trucha bug. Sorry again.

No worries.

The 'no headers' option just puts blanks insead of the 1k header in the sectors that are 'scrubbed'. As the headers amount to 1k for every 32k then you have an overhead of about 150-200 Meg usually (1 / 32 of the partition size). For small games that makes a heck of a difference.

Someone just posted hamster heroes on a.b.g.wii at 56 Meg so looks like someone's realised

The important thing there was saying "without the update partition" - which you can remove using other tools (and the wiiscrubber version I'm currently testing).

Someone posted wiichess on a.b.g.wii a few weeks ago at 26 Meg.

    @Julie_Pilgrim "very bright" is essentially pure white

    pure white doesn't show up all that much it's mainly when looking at a bright sky

    and if the clouds in the sky have slightly less definition to them because i turned on the contrast enhancer who cares

    Human vision is logarithmic, it's not linear. And nits doesn't tell the whole story of perceived brightness. OLED'S look brighter then LCD's even when both are set to the same nit values because of the higher contrast ratio on OLED's

    OLED's have a 3D look

    Charging port is more likely to fry up or battery fail before the display tbh lol

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    "And nits doesn't tell the whole story of perceived brightness" it's not about perceived brightness it's about all HDR content in TV and movies being mastered for 1000 nits so it doesn't look right with anything lower, it's also about dynamic range

    "OLED's have a 3D look" no they don't lol

    As an owner of a OLED and you saying that you never seen an OLED I think I know what I'm talking about lol. I'm not talking about 3D as in 3D glasses. I'm talking about depth and pop in the picture

    I mean to be fair og vitas are still kicking and not many have suffered from pixel bleed and they're going on nearly 10 years

  • SG854 @ SG854:
    OLED's can get away with a lower peak brightness and still provide punchy HDR because of their contrast ratio. Like I said human vision is logarithmic. The higher the peak brightness the diminishing returns in perceived brightness.

    Just get 5 years enjoyment out of it until Nintendy releases something and everyone forgets about switch games lol

  • SG854 @ SG854:
    @The Real Jdbye Oleds hit around 750 nits nowadays. The difference between a 1000 nit and a 750 nit isn't huge. It's only about a 4% increase in perceived brightness. Not huge at all. You'll need at least 2000 nit displays to notice a bigger difference.
    Gift
  • SG854 @ SG854:
    Read this thread it explains it. 1000 nits is not a huge jump from 750 the LG OLEDs can hit. As I said human vision is non linear.
