    Us wbfs_file.exe

    Greetings. I am a new member and this is my first post.

    My question: If I use wbfs_file.exe to convert an ISO to a *.wbfs file and use winrar to make say 5 rar files for the created \wbfs\"game" folder, would someone be able to extract them and copy the game folder to their wbfs folder on their Fat32 USB HDD and play it?

    This seems it would make D/L allot quicker.

    Thanks.

    Why would you wanna do this, just split rar the ISOs. Why go through the trouble converting them?

    You can't run games from a FAT32 partition. Only WBFS and NTFS [if using the latest USB Loader GX]

    I'm running 33 games from a FAT32 partition using USB Loader GX.

    I would like to send the rars to my Brother. Say 28mg of rar files vs 4.7gb of rar files.
    This will be done over the internet.

    If the person you want to send the files to has winrar and the same set up as you do to use them then, by all means do what you think is easiest.

    Never quantify your life by comparison. It is always going to be apples to oranges. If you feel the need to always look down on others, you currently do not own enough mirrors------ Tommie Griffin.

    Seems pretty stupid to run from FAT32 as it takes up a larger footprint of the drive than WBFS or NTFS, but whatevers clever

    What your speaking of is borderline piracy, we do not condone those kinda actions here. No more talk of this will be accepted.
