Removing dummy files from games to save space on the hdd.
Removing dummy files from games to save space on the hdd. –
Can someone point me to a tutorial or a guide or something that can remove the dummy files from my games.. Namely Guilty Gear XX which has 2 gb of dummy data on the disc. Seein as how you can make an iso file and send it to the drive with Winhiip, you can very well control what you send to the hdd better than just copying it with the ps2. I understand that dummy files are usually used as a buffer so the laser will read closer to the end of the dics.. (Or so I assume since GGXX reads everything near the end of the disc and I also heard that the laser reads better near the outside somewhere... never towards the front unless its for the boot crap) but this wouldnt matter on the hdd right? You could very well save a hell of alot of space on the hdd by nixing those damned dummies..
well...I'm not sure how this work with guiltyGearXX but with my DragonBall z 2 budokai, all i did was just extract the file out of the gamedisc and get the LBA setting for the game...TO GET THE LBA filelist, you need to use ISObuster....it's also call a tree-info...i think...
Check my bros site...it's simple but get the message across...IMPORT LOVERS...CAR THAT IS...
*smacks forehead* I didnt think a thing about changing the LBA.. ive been in Xbox modding so long I forgot all about how the ps2 works. I just deleted the two dummy files from the iso and uploaded it from there.. didnt even think anything about the LBA.. Makes sense tho.
Uaahh.. Just how do you arrange the lba in this case anyway..

Well, the HDD may read it, but the game wont run. I tried it already and it just went black after selecting the game and nothing more.
