    Hi guys,

    I just learned about ISOs and CSOs and stuffz.

    So I have a Gundam VS Gundam ISO, right? Size about 750MB.
    Then I use UMDgen, use the stickied topic as a guide and used compression level 9.

    The newly formed CSO is now 363MB. O.o
    Is that right? Or did something go wrong? I seriously didn't thnk it'd cut down so much.

    Also, please answer: What's the difference between compression levels? (1-9)
    Like, what are the pros and cons for the upper/lower levels?
    I hear that 9 makes the loading times longer. Is there any pro for 9?

    Thanks!

    basically compress at lvl 9 and if it lags , try a different lvl ( bare in mind you can crank the speed up aswell , at the cost of less charge time in your battery )

    to be honest i never use this now , mem cards are pennies nowadays ! not like when i first started when 2gig cost me £60 opposed to 4 gig for under £10 now

    Is it true that all level 9 does is shave off some more space? Because for me, between level 4 and 9, level 9 only shaved off like 300KB. O.o
