Yo dawg, I heard you like compressed .rars. So we put your .rar in a .rar, so you can compress while you're compressing.


Are you okay? LOL

That's worth looking into, thanks.
Will also compare with 7z.

Started the final polishing round today, hope to take no more than a month now.
Exciting that it's really almost done :-)

yeah, i even downloaded long ago a gta game, compressed in KGB, the file was less than 20 mb, KGB archiver is that good... but when it comes to extract the data.... i took almost 10 hours to extract it... the extraction (and i think also compression) time is the only problem here >.>

Edit:nvm i just lost the link and forgot the name of the program.....

You'll be able to download each file separately or as one huge file on the website.

Just a point of information pertaining to the archive discussion. We convert all uploads to Zip classic for broader compatibility since windows will extract Zip classic files natively without the need to install a utility. Yes I know they are slightly larger however we get much less email concerning the file extraction.

http://www.lumoriace.com

The Lumoria official website.

A ZIP and RAR containing all 4 map files will be available as well as separate when the map releases.

I'm personally not a huge fan of hosting the three map files of episode 2 seperately, as one map will load the other. Aside from that, playing each map seperately from eachother over a longer period would ruin immersion I believe. File rating on halomaps would also become an issue to get an idea of how the complete package is received.

Though tbh, 400 Mb isn't that bad nowadays is it?

Yeah I understand, however getting the files to you will be much less harder if they are all compressed down to 400 MB with WinRAR. That saves both of us a lot of time.

It may be good to have a complete package on the website but also have each map available for download separately, that way if someone wanted to or needed to redownload a specific, they could just download that 1 map instead of having to download that whole pack. Especially if the complete file would be in a .zip.

If Dennis doesn't want to do that though, we could host a complete package on Lumoriace.com and also have each map available separately on Halomaps. However, I'd personally like to see a complete package on Halomaps too.

Alright, I just zipped it with the current maps. Suprising! 471 MB. Not to bad then. Uncompressed the files are still about 900 MB.

The current planning I'm trying to adhere to is as follows:
- First round of final polish done by saturday evening
- Distribute betas to trusted people saturday evening + sunday
- Acquire feedback on first beta polish on monday and tuesday, consider what should still be changed
- Wednesday - Friday: implement changes based on feedback
- Distribute another round of betas the following weekend + implement minimal final changes on the week that follows

Depending on how busy I get with other thing, these timelines can ofc still be scaled up to fit my schedule :-)

So yeah, just another two to three weeks to go :O

For sure, my aim still is to get the first "internal" beta ready by tomorrow evening my time (I'm in Belgium). So hit me up on xfire around that time or the day after :-)

Darn, I'm clearly not trusted. Or at least I'd assume. :/

Anyway, looking forward to the full release anyway.
Just hope I don't find any glitches that I could have found as a beta tester. :P

Hi Jaz, don't worry I'm not the type to hold grudges easily.
I also know that you're the type to "nit-pick" on details (I mean that in a good way), so if you get on xfire I can send you a beta as well. In general the beta is there to find game breaking bugs should we have overseen any, and for very small tweaks to encounters if needed.

So yeah, hop on tonight.

Oh cool. Okay, I'd be happy to help you find any glitches. :)

What's your xfire username again?
(E: Nevermind, just remembered I can take it from my blocklist... uh.. after removing you from it. Sorry, rarely use Xfire and forgot to unblock you. xD)

Episode 1 is included in the beta. If you get the beta please note that Episode 1 is currently undergoing changes to its cinematics not included in the beta.

Also on another note:
Dear Higuy and or Lodex; your ogg and vorbis crash when installed.

Only Ogg and Vorbis are included. Also add vorbisenc, vorbisfile to the files included plz. thx u
