How much do eggs cost?

Point is it varies depending on the game.

actually all wii games should be exactly 4.37 GB.

I'm sure that the actual games arn't all that size, but nintendo puts in padding to make them all 4.37 GB

Well there are two answers i have for this one.

The Proper Size of a Nintendo Wii ISO is 4.37 GB (4,699,979,776 bytes) and while we are at it Nintendo Gamecube ISO size: 1.35 GB (1,459,978,240 bytes)

Now inside of that 4.37GB iso is the game + tons of garbage data. This garbage data is scrambled so we were not able to remove it. However thanks to "WIIScrubber" That is no longer true. With Wii scrubber the garbage data can be cleaned and then you can see the real size of the game. Example WiiSports is said to be under 300MB

can you play a backup wii game that is burt without the padding?

I heard you can store the game without the padding but would need to re-pad when you want to burn.

And is there a way to make a multi boot wii disk?

Its my understanding that the padding is not removed. It is changed from something like

THIS "0FBAC467FC491277GCF2................"

CHANGED TO SOMETHING LIKE THIS "FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF................"

What happens is that winrar can compress FFFFFFFFFFFFFFF to next to nothing. So when you extract a scrubbed game it is still the proper file size and repaded.

Now is this a good idea? Nintendo could do checks down the road. Then again they could do nothing..


Currently there is no way to make a multi boot wii disk.
