Didn't plain ISO used to be available for GameCube game downloads?

Now it's forcing Nkit which, while lossless, has generally been superseded by the RVZ format which is much easier to compress/decompress, is ACTUALLY fully compatible with Dolphin (unlike Nkit), and is cross-platform (Mac, Linux, Android in addition to Windows) unlike Nkit (some games like Super Paper Mario staight-up don't work via Nkit while others can have issues you'd otherwise not run into if it weren't in Nkit format).

With the upcoming launch of the Steam Deck, it seems unwise to double-down on a game format that can't even be used properly on a Linux-based OS.

A new mobile-friendly design was launched today. It won't win any awards but mobile users can finally browse Vimm's Lair without zooming.

Also the Vault 2.0 rollout continues with the GameCube and WiiWare Vaults. Just like the others, all regions are now supported and uploads are enabled.
