So after converting my wbfs partition to fat32, I saw that game partition must be the first one on a hdd for sneek+di

; my own fault for not reading. I am currently copying the games off the hdd to another, then using gparted to move the other movie/tv partition I have to the end of the hdd. Will sneek+di recognize the wbfs folder? I've seen in another topic (sneek-di-quick-guide) that the structure should be usb:\games\RMGE01.wbfs for example. Is there a setting I'll need to change to recognize usb:\wbfs\RMGE01 or can I simply rename the folder?

Thanks yall.

renaming to /games/ won't work. SNEEK needs a totally different format to read the game. You will need to convert all games one by one using DiscEx (which can be found on the sneek/dios-mios google code download sections).

Modmii has a bulk converter for the sneek conversion, so no troubles at all, just start it before you go to bed and the next morning it is done!
So thats no reason to not use uneek+di
If you want same functionallity as uneek+di without converting to raw format i recommend to use uniiloader.

You can batch-convert. Since the games are already on another disk, you might as well. I believe ModMii can do this; or you can just do this from the command prompt:

for /R %f in (*.wbfs) do discex "%f"

assuming discex is in your wbfs directory.

Better yet, just convert a couple games and give UNEEK+DI a try. If you like it, convert the rest of your stuff. Or switch to Uniiloader

    Not so sure about that - the tendency for "graphics uber alles" tends to lead to very high power consumption

    If you look at what's now portability graphics are catching up to console quality

    The thing is that the IATA rules impose a pretty hard limit of 100Wh on battery sizes for lithium batteries - and it doesn't look like Li is going away soon

  • T @ trimesh:
    So if you want (say) 4 hours of runtime you need a maximum system-level power consumption of 25W

    Yeah but we already have AAA titles looking fine on tablet form 1080p displays

    For reference, the PS5 is rated at 350W and the Xbox series X at 275W - and that's console only, without any display
