    I've gotten the USA version down to 73MB with CISO compression, the EUR version's slightly larger, around 90MB. Delete the singleplayer maps, delete or dummy the movies, remove VAGSTORE.ZAR and BNKSTORE.ZAR - and hey presto.

    Use UMDGen v3.5 for this (I'm assuming that nothing has been removed already by another person):

    1) Open SYSDIR, delete the UPDATE folder.

    2) Open USRDIR/RUN. The folders that begin with MP_ are the ones you need for online play. Delete the ones starting with BANG, CHILE, MOROCCO and POLAND.

    3) Open the MOVIES folder in USRDIR/RUN. Delete them all.

    4) Now go to USRDIR/SOUNDS. Find two files called BNKSTORE.ZAR and VAGSTORE.ZAR, and delete them.

    Save to a folder, then convert to CISO format, and it should be nice and small. This however is for the USA version.. I have an EUR one someplace, I'll go find it now.

    I've managed to get the EUR one down to 82.1MB (CISO). You should be able to play the USA one in Europe without any issues, depending on your connection you may want to stick with the East or Central servers. The USA one doesn't need your gaming name, you just make up a name nobody else has. Also, there's always at least 4,000 players at any one time I've checked, and last night there were over 13,000 playing.

    Mine's 149MB uncompressed.. perhaps there are additional languages? I removed them all but English.

    Just found the ISO now. In the SOUNDS folder there are files called VAGS_ENG, FRN, JPN etc. which are about 50MB apiece. I've got those all dummied. Use this to dummy those files:

    Clicky.

    Rename it to VAGS_KOR.ZAR or whichever the name is.
