What happened to .DAX format?

Post by n00neimp0rtant » Tue Sep 25, 2012 3:49 pm

I recompressed all of my CSOs to DAX format and every one of them are smaller. So I'm curious: why don't modern CFWs like PRO support DAX rips? Is there a plugin that reenables support? Or is the support there, and I'm just putting them in the wrong folder or something?

Thanks.

I think it just became obsolete. I never used .DAX because I just kept the format my games were dumped to which was 100% of the time .ISO or .CSO. I don't see the point in support for .DAX now.

The DAX format was avaible for the SE and OE firmwares i guess, even later M33 firmwares did not support DAX files anymore.
There is a plugin for supporting DAX files, but i guess it was just for 3.xx/4.xx or 5.xx CFWs.

i think you're talking about the DAX ZISO Loader ;) it was for 1.50

by the way, once i tried compressing a game's ISO to .dax and .jso but it never was smaller than the .cso, probably that's why those format ain't used anymore :lol:

ZISO, sounds great :lol:


Fact is, neither JSO nor DAX were good enough to be used in future releases of CFWs.

Exactly, because .CSO was always better and more common.
