It's good for everyone... if you've got a very good computer, makes it almost instant and if you've got a shit computer (like mine) makes it faster. No downloads on client end, so its good for quick downloads. Posting this because we've got 2 servers, and if we do get a rotation, it'll make waiting a hell of a lot better.

It can also be done to mp3's, wav's etc...

All I see is that it compresses a file into a rar. Big deal, just get 7zip and compress it to a 7z file, compresses even futher then rar can go :p

I dunno whats special about this, but people use this for source games especially. I dont see many map_name.bsp.rar stuff, iykwim.

http://www.bzip.org/ is the site, and you can read about it. It says somthing about using it for bsp's, so i think its made for it.

Tendo, if a map like this is downloaded it does not need to be extracted manually? It's still a transparent process for the player?

To my understanding, it transfers the small bz2 onto the clients computer, then extracts it right away. So its just making the file smaller for the transfer.

Aaaaw, now it actually makes sense to rar it in that way xD
Anyway, if it is self-extracting we could use it on the server for a faster transfer, right?

I was able to compress a map and upload it to the gameserver but i could not see the map. I did some research and it turned out that you can only use the compressed maps when you use a separate webserver to host your maps.

Right now i've registered a free domain and i'm setting up free webhosting so we can upload maps there and use fast download. Hopefully it will be an improvement.

The server is for members and regulars only so i guess if they read the forum they will know about it? Where would you suggest we communicate this?

Perhaps you can test out yourself Tendo one of these days.

I was still under the impression that our orange server was going to be a rotation. If not, then yea, no point Razz

Well i guess we can still do that, first lets pick some really good maps for that and that is what we can do on the stockserver.

We should just play maps on the private server and then pick from those which we like. That's the best way to do it.
