    Anybody knows how to do this? It would be great if this info was passed around!

    See the spyro release thread

    yeah, but I thought more release are using winrar too. I really hope they will start compressing all the reelases......

    yeah, it seems that they were able to get spyro down to 2.36 gigs with rar? But how come every other release are still stuck at 4+ gigs with rar. I dont think they are all that big.

    How's this for surety, I'm sure that you've never "gotten em" from anywhere if you're not aware that their level of compression has been null until now.

    It hasn't been null. It just hasn't been as drastic. Some things compress better than others. What are you new at this?

    Fuck all you pieces of shit. I'm sure every single Wii game up until now has had absolutely no buffering with empty data...just used every single byte with valuable shit. Except Spyro. Couldn't have anything to do with finding a way to recognize the bunk data as repeating and therefore infinitely compressible data. Since I'm such a noob that's why I don't realize that every single Wii game except this one is completely full of multimedia in order to make it so great and infinitely replayable and enjoyable.

    Keep it civil. Impart your wisdom, such as it is, without resorting to name calling. Someone might benefit from what you know, but they can't benefit from a post I'm forced to delete.
