    when you download a torrent, and you notice there are a ton of .rar archives...
    they are all named the same, and are the same size, so are they the same file?
    and all the little .rars...
    .rar01, .rar02, etc...

    when you burn the iso onto a disk, you just extract the first rar archive after the nso file, right?
    so my question is, do you really have to download everything in the torrent, or can you just download the first rar archive?

    sorry if that is a dumb question, but it doesn't really make sence to have to download a whole torrent, when all you do is extract the first 46.7 mb or so to make the game.

    You have to download each and every single one of them.

    An ISO is zipped into .rar format and broken into smaller chunks.

    E.g 10mb ISO broken into 10 parts of .rar format.

    Therefore:

    test.rar01, test.rar02...test.rar10

    i sort of understand... so why do you only have to open the first one in winRAR instead of extracting them individually?
    thanks for answering! =)

    It does the rest automatically.

    Would sort of be a pain to have to extract 100 Rars or so individually.

    Besides which, homebrewing your Wii voids the warranty, read the EULA.
