Thread: Newbie Help Re Form Of Games Shared

  1. #1
    If I search for a game I find the same game shared in two different ways - as an iso file (about 700000Kb) and also as 'complete game' (about 200000Kb). A lot of people are sharing both versions so I would have thought both are genuine.
    But I don't understand what the difference is - why would anyone download 700000Kb if 200000Kb gives the same result.
    What am I missing here?
    Thanks!

    The 700 MB file is an ISO so is a complete copy of the retail game CD.

    The 200MB or so file will be a rip, which means it has been compressed and will have certain stuff like music, sounds or cutscenes "ripped" out of the game to make the filesize smaller.
