What or how do you reduce the size of games that end up over 80 minutes?
I have several games I've tried making self-boot that end up over 80 minutes.

You can either make them selfboot using the Echelon Selfboot kit which allows you to control the size of the game much much easier or presuming you are running bin2boot on the game you can try to tone down the dummy file of the bin.

Default large files over 80 minutes

Is there a particular tutorial or program to use?
Many guides on that website to choose from.

Also is the self boot site link gone or down?

well, what game are you doing?

just use isobuster and extract all the data off the disc. Find a file that is real big, named something like 000dummy.dat and delete it. Then get a dummy file creator from the site i gave you and insert a smaller one. Use the echelon tutorial from the site to get it back to cd. As long as there is just the standard binhack it will work. if not then there ar other hacks you'll have to apply
