Hi Thomas,

Yeah when zipped the distribution size was about 70 percent of the original 
size of the files.  Of course mp3 files etc can be 30 percent or even less 
depending on quality, but since I am using DirectX I am also sticking with wave

Hi Jim,
Smile. That's all? That's pretty small potatoes compared to the
current release of Mysteries of the Ancients. Beta 14 is almost 350 MB
fully installed and even compressed using Inno Setup it is around 170
MB. The Linux setup looks like it will be around 250 MB because tar
doesn't appear to have that high of compression. I'll probably have to
see if I can find a better Linux compression format like bz2 and see
if I can shrink that 250 down to something a bit smaller.

Hi Phil,

In my temporary spanker folder the 118 wave files, the 1 little text file, a
tiny batch file and the spanker executable file add up to 2,401,704 bytes.
When zipped they equal 1,703,313 bytes.  And then making that zip file into
a self extracting zip file makes it1,765,376 bytes.




The trouble with bucket seats is that not everybody has the same size bucket.
