View Full Version : Module files WAY TOO BIG!

May 7th, 2007, 09:21
When I exported a module recently, I notice it took 43 megabytes of space.
Strange I tought, there where some images, maybe the images are packed with the rest I tought.
But even then it wouldn't add up, I didn't have that many images.
Upon extracting the module, it took only 5 megs!?!
So I peeked in the compressed module and I found that each image was there about 5 to 10 times each.
The Database was also filled with redundent stuff.
Image definitions that came up 5 to 10 times.
(It's actually the categories that come up a couple times and in them, there are always the same images)
I think it might be related with the problem that was corrected with version 9 concerning the category tabs because I used them in the modules (there was no more images, personalities or encounters in the main tab also by the way if it changes anything). But I recompiled the modules after the patch and it's still the same.

Wow, can you imagine pushing that to all the players. :)

Nice catch.
