    A lot of wii games when copied with Wiiflow come out as WBFS files, but two that I know of, Smash bros Brawl and Marvel ultimate alliance also contain a WBF1 File. Without this file, it seems the game will not play. What is this file, and is there a way to do away with it?
     
  2. Game isos were splitted into 2 files, when they get larger than 4GB and yuo didn't turn off the split option.

    Example. 7,5GB iso -> 4GB wbfs + 3,5GB wbf1 files

    I wasn't aware there was a split option. So what do I do about it?

    1) Do nothing, because it doesn't matter and doesn't change how you play the game
    2) Convert your drive to NTFS and the files will be able to be larger than 4GB

    Congratulations, drakorex. Most people have problems with FAT32's filesize limit before they learn about USB manager's ability to split up the game into segments so loaders can use it. You're the first one who actually notices that the games are indeed split up like they should in order to fit on a FAT32 drive. [​IMG]
