I think WinHIIP (latest) goes the extra step and re-builds the list for HD Loader.

This isn't deleting dummies (as there were none that I saw), but there are several extra language files you can delete. As long as you have it set (in the game options) to use English, the game will play fine.
I got it from 4.3gb to ~2.8gb by deleting
They are 367mb each. There's another one called "VAGWAD.COM" that I'm almost positive you can delete too, but I haven't had the time to try it over again.
The method I used was simply dragging the files into CDGENPS2 and saving it as an iso.
The only ordering change I made was I added the file with the lowest LBA first, added everything else, then added the file with the highest LBA. However I don't even know if this is necessary.
Alien Hominid succesfully shrinked down from 1.3GB to 954MB replacing PADDING.DAT with a 0 byte file of the same name.
Thanks for the tutorials guys. I've tried it with the games mentioned and am happy with the results. I will be doing this with all the new games I install.
Successfully shrunk Second sight - PAL from 4.36GB to 1.3GB, just extracted & re-built the ISO.
Should also work on the NTSC release as both use the same LBA trick.
