I recommend using GCMUtility to reduce the size of ISOs:

viewtopic.php?f=37&t=4223

If you are using an unmodified ISO in the process and want to remove the message about Nkit in Swiss, just do the following:

1 - Open ISO with HxD and locate the following lines:

00000200 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00
00000210 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00

2 - Switch to:

00000200 4E 4B 49 54 20 76 30 31 89 B5 53 BF BD B8 58 82
00000210 57 05 80 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00

Thanks, I'll have to add additional checks to defeat that.

the goal is to prevent games from running in a format other than Nkit?

Just one detail... I'm sure this message should bother the user much more.

It's not just one detail. These tools cause errors that affect playability.

About GCMUtility, I used on more than 200 ISOs and didn't notice problems. Unlike FSTFix, I have never seen reports of problems.

200 is not the 1907 currently in the Redump database. What it does is also not easily reversible.

1907 is a good number. But I prefer to rely on the number 0 of problems caused by GCMUtility. The important thing is that it solves the author's problem. If he comes back and tells the conclusion of this story...

today I see no advantage for GCmultility. :idea:
Nkit does everything by itself and at the same time, leaving ISOS READY to Swiss;
I had problems with Nkit, but the whole question is as follows, for those who may have the same problem:
my Win 7 64bit.
when starting the Nkit app, it will report an error message due to blah blah units.
drag the games into the Nkit process, so with the error, wait, it looks like Nkit has crashed, but you will see that it is starting to work, wait! :!:
even with the status in red, Nkit works. the Nkit.iso will be ready. :P

after all, the problem may be an ISO.
i had a dump of zelda TP-br. that I converted and reconverted, nothing. the problem was the iso.


PS,
1 "VerifyFaied" appears on all isos for me ... it doesn't seem to be a problem ...
2 I dont haven't figured out how to run GCZ games ... :?

Diego, have you finished The Wrath of the Cortex, Finest Hour, Hot Pursuit 2 modified with Nkit? I think you can change your mind. Time passes and I see the same problems. They just change the games.
