Playstation Vita Homebrew for minimizing the size of games stored on a Playstation Vita Memory Card.
Save valuable space on your memory card by shrinking unneeded manuals, language and video files to 0-Byte files.
Game Shrinker automatically searches for manuals, language (text, audio, images) and video files in the game directories and offers you the possibility to shrink them to 0-Byte.
Shrinking files to 0-Byte is usually better supported than completely deleting them and reduces the chance of crashes and getting stuck when the file would usually be accessed by the game. Depending on the game and file, you still cannot shrink every file, though.
Game Shrinker comes with a “Try-A-Dummy”-Feature, which let’s you temporary replace a file with a dummy-file. After you tested the game you can then decide to make this change permanent or undo it. (This saves you from having to reinstall the game if you shrinked a file that is obligatory for the the game)
Some Behind the Scenes:
This is my first C-Projekt in years, so it might be a little unpolished here and there. I started this as a side project in order to fresh up my C-knowledge and to support the growing Vita community! With the very high price of Vita Memory Cards, i hoped that some users would find this useful. The app was released during the GEKIHEN Hombrew Contest.
