I got the wii wrapped up and under the xmas tree and love to plan ahead. I want to get the experience as simple and close to ps2 as possible to not confuse my kids. I see some games can be shrunk/scrubbed to a much smaller size. The iso still stays the full size, it just compresses better. How can I have a permanently shrunk file , wbfs? and if so how do go about making them? and on that note, which file system is best? i prefer ntfs but I know its only writeable under windows. I have no problem connecting the hdd to my pc to add stuff, even when ripping retails if possible. And I believe some apps/wads can be run off a drive, so im going to guess a few 100mb or so of fat32 will cover that? So far im leaning towards configurable usb loader and usb loader gx. I believe I read configurable does iso off ntfs, but the iso would be full size, correct? I liked usb loader gx in a vid tutorial because it had the auto cover downloading and what not.. and I read about loadstructor which i may want to put a few entries in on the kids most common choices. i just wanna make sure my terminology is good. apps would be wads, so can you make the wii auto load a wad like configurable usb loader? and neo gamma still good for loading retail and backups, correct?
