Hey dan just a quick question so iv been using you guide to recompile cdi and its been working great! My question is that even if i dont remove/add files to the game the cdi size increases a lot. Was curious if there was anything one could do to stop the size from increasing like crazy Thanks

I had this problem too, but I'm not sure where or why the size increases

I ran into this with Sonic Adventure modding, I had to downsample the SFDs to make everything fit

Though you can try programs like CDI4DC or MDS4DC and maybe it's algorithm will make it slightly smaller like the original. But I've found in every case for CDI compiling IsoFix+BIN2BOOT results in the best burn/Most times the disc boots on the first try

So you're more or less sacrificing boot reliability over space with my method, but other methods are obviously more space saving as if it were not you wouldn't have the issue you're having

Google "Atreyu187 Pastebin" and you'll have all the documentation you need
