Hey there folks over GBATemp.

Currently I have been getting some ISO files to use on my Wii's HDD with Nintendont and came to a realization they are actually trimmed / scrubbed ISOs (those that ends with .nkit.iso.). Because of that, a (huge) doubt comes to me:
Does Nintendont run those files just like the original 1:1 file? (with no issues, cons or whatsoever.)

Any answer is appreciated.

I don't know, but downloading Wii games in this new format sucks, because Wii Backup Manager doesn't support them, and that's how I add games to my drives. Converting them back to ISO required I downloaded a 14GB "Nkit complete" package to my PC first, and even then conversion wasn't a 100% success. I hate that uploaders are now using this shiitty format. using .wbfs files was (and is) just fine. I don't give two shits about saving 4MB of space per game to be honest.

Maybe it is "safer" for the People who make actual the Wii "Archives" to not get "deleted" or other bad Things from Nintendo.
ISO is such a bad,bad Word for that Company. bash.gif


NKIT sounds "modern" and is something they maybe do not "understand.....laughing.gif

Well they claim it's better for archival reasons, that you can re-bloat the ISO images back to a 1:1 perfect clone since it does hashing and all that... But I'm not switching to an obnoxious format that won't work with my game launcher (CFGLoader) or my game manager (Wii Game Manager). And after mounting an image under Windows 10, it just looks to be using the standard UDF format, because my PC can mount them fine, compared to the regular Wii ISOs. That's about the only up side that I see.

Yeah, nkit sucks. The space you save can help, but would you rather have a bunch of games that have a chance of not working at all, and a higher chance of having problems, all for one extra games, or less games but all of them work very well. No one will probarly pick the first one. Just use WBFS for loaders, and dont use Nkit for dolphin. If you want gamecube games, just get the ISO, its better, just do it.

    imo without at least a 30lbs dumbbell you won't get a lot of use out of em - and these max out at like 10lbs for each arm

    first of all, there should be exactly zero reasons to place your sweaty balls on any of the equipment - generally you are supposed to wear clothing at the gym
