    134.217.728 bytes.
    131072 kilobytes
    126 megabytes
    0.125 gigabytes

    I just used a calculator.
    Looks like you asked for a game, i thought you asked for the size.

    Bleach I think. It trims to the same size before trimming.

    128MB before trimming -> 128MB after trimming

    I know I should've said something better than "in my opinion" but I wasn't sure if they were the biggest file size ever and there might've some with even more than the one I mentioned.

    Cause he's probably going off of memory? Maybe he should have said IIRC instead of IMHO?

    H8TR's candidate seems to make sense since it doesnt trim down. We all know that 128 is the largest NDS ROM sice presently. Or do we? Hrm... [​IMG]

    The maximum size at the moment is 128 MBytes. I remember hearing that as you increase the size of the memory, the slower the access. My guess is that Nintendo never expected any larger size to be utilized, but game companies are pretty much filling up these cartridges to the brim.

    Also the next size would be 256 Mbytes. I don't know if this will happen, if anybody good with this technical mumbo-jumbo can help, it would be great!
