    Garbage or dummy files.

    Except for a few like mgs2 where you have to split
    the dvd because there are no removable files.

    Why would you want ot do that unless you have a DVD9 and want to make it fit a DVD5. With Mercenaries, why would you want to make a 4 gig file into a 1.88 gig file. Its still too big for a CD-r and a DVD-R can fit the 4 Gig file.

    Please someone explain this.

    hey yellows,
    i did it because my 4gb backup froze. i didnt know how to apply the patch. and i read somewhere patching games is only good for allowing you to play online.
    so after researching i stumbled across a guide that showed me how to rebuild the image. i used it and it worked!
    so does anybody have an answer to my ques?
