Thread: Wiu1.1 wrong size question

  1. #1

    Angry Wiu1.1 wrong size question

    I've ripped red steel (original disc) onto my hdd through usbloader, and i transferred it through wbfs manager onto my pc, in order to remove any updates on it (I always want to be safe, although usbloader skips those updates). However when I open it up using Wiu1.1 to remove the update, it says Wrong size in red letters. How is this possible? Should I not care about it, or will it cause a problem (eg brick my wii)?

    Thank you

    Note: I have made this thread before, but nightstah gave me the tutorial for making Red Steel 2 work, not Red Steel (1) as I mentioned above. Also, the thread was closed without allowing me to reply. What I really need is an explanation why it shows wrong size, and how can i fix it

    @Nighstah No prob ;p

    @boogiman There is no problem with the software I use, I just dont know why it shows that the size of the game is wrong, although I ripped it from an original disc

    Actually, now that I re-read your original post I'm not sure why you're doing this. If you use USB Loader GX to rip this (presumptively to your HD), it automatically strips the resultant data of extraneous/update partitions and what not. It sounds as if you're ripping to HD, moving to PC, and then trying to scrub. If so, that likely is the source of your problem. IDK if this is NTSC or PAL at your end, but the scrubbed thread says the PAL image is 3.82gb after being scrubbed/stripped.

    No, this is not what im doing. I rip the game onto my HD, then I extract the game onto my pc, which results into an .iso file. Then I remove the update using Wiu1.1. I have done this for other games, and it was ok, but with red steel, and now Trauma Center Second Opinion, when I open the .iso file that I extracted from my HD, it says wrong size
