    i'm downloading GHWT like that.

    its like that so that each part downloads at the same rate meaning it'll all come quicker. in theory...

    well, i'm not exactly sure, but i think you have to open the .rar file (not .r00 etc) then just drag out of the folder and it should put all the parts of the ISO together. not entirely sure but thats what i think.

    DON'T CHANGE THE FILE EXTENSION.

    And as long as the option to right click and extract are there don't worry if they don't appear as Winrar files.

    if its the latest version of winrar , right click on any of the R files and EXTRACT - it merges all of the files and unzips (unrars) them all into one complete folder/file

    He was posting these in the issues and answers and someone told him to create a new thread - Im sure he didnt realise that this wasnt really Wii related at all and just needs some help on it, which of course he will get loads of from this community since everyone is pretty good. I hope it all works out for him really as its a brave jump into the unknown he is attempting if this is his first try.

    normally im all about helping people.
    but if you don't know what a rar file is, then maybe "hacking" your wii is the last thing you should be trying right now.


    if someone is too stupid to pirate, you people shouldn't be helping them. its not like ANY of the ripping programs rip files to rar. they all rip to iso.
    furthermore, its not like typing in "rar" in google won't give you an answer in about 2 seconds. (actually it just took google 0.14 seconds to search for rar).

    and don't give me that "oh, but you were a noob once." no, i wasn't. i have something called reasoning.


    edit: and don't take this as an anti-piracy rant. its a lazy/hand holding rant.

    I understand WinRAR and use it all the time, I've just never used an ISO in my life. I set up HBC with no help and have many different things that I'm using on it constantly. To name a few, GeckoOS for region free and cheats, emulators for... emulating and other stuff. I'm dumping PBR from my Wii to my computer with a Wi-Fi connection. This probably isn't a big deal, but this is my first time with any of this.

    Thanks very much though guys. When one game finally downloads, I'll try it out.

    Your assuming he has wireless on the wii and can rip a copy to that. he may not have wireless or an LG drive.
    He may have the original of the game and is downloading a copy to burn to disc for backup purposes which is completely legal in Canada where he is from.

    Yes he should be able to search these things on Google , and most people do - he asked on another thread what a .sfv file was - i told him 'Google is your friend - this isnt the place to be asking about these files' so he said thanks and looked it up and then replied with :

    "Simple File Viewer"
    Okay.. what does it do?


    I have a feeling he is young and doesnt realise that when we say GOOGLE IS YOUR FRIEND we mean it for pretty much everything - look it up first , then ask when you hit a brick wall.

    just so your aware : .r01 .r02 etc etc have nothing at all to do with ISO.
    Its like zipping a load of photos - the zip has nothing to do with the JPG format - it just happens to contain the images

    Winrar uses winrar r00 extensions and splits the file up into smaller sizes for ease of downloads - it re-compiles them when you extract and if you have all of the pieces required , but its not wii related in any way , nor is it ISO related - its purely Winrar specific based on how it rars large files.
