i have a 4 gig
and i herd people have 12 games on it
Compress ur iso to cso.
Use umdgen to remove update folders.
is there an easy way?
can you really put like 12 games on a 4gb stick? hmm... maybe i won't need the 8gb after all... but will removing updates from the game will it affect the game in anyway
Lol its kinda easy compress ur iso to cso using ciso converter. Use google ^^.
Some games takes only 200 mb, if theyre ripped good and theres no animations vids, only 1 language.
Removing update folders doesnt affect to game, nothing happend to my games, just got about 30 megs off
say i got like a 600MB game... and i convert it with that converter, what do you think the size will be once im done
Try! I would say about 400 megs
lol, are you kidding me the update folder can take like 200 megs out, then cso it, and it's like 300 megs less
how do u take the update folder out?
get umdgen, open the iso in umdgen, find the update folder, and delete it, and then go to file->save as and save the new iso. then u could use a iso to cso converter and convert the iso to a cso. there are also files that aren't needed such as language files, so if u only speak english, delete all the other languages in umdgen. and lastly, some isos are just filled with empty space, so just opening them in umdgen and rebuilding will get rid of the empty space.
There's a good guide on this forum, take a look in the sticky. Essentially with umgen you can take out files you won't be needing. Like if you don't play online, you can remove the online stuff, removing language will get the size down, but it won't win the war for you - it's the media files that will really make a difference. You can make dummy files for music and you can replace videos with smaller clips - for sports games you can take out commentary...etc
The really easy/quick win is removing the pad files sometimes that alone can cut down 100 MB.
