Module size over 75Mb

Postby Greggy » March 30th, 2016, 1:57 pm

CRAP!

I've tried everything to reduce the size of the module I'm working on to no avail. The smallest I can reduce it to is 75.2 Mb. I know from the module section that the largest desirable size is 75 Mb and then you're supposed to contact the Webmaster for help. Is it really 'help' because it's a different process or is it more 'permission' to exceed the 75 Mb limit?

Either way.......HELP!

Thanks,

Greggy

Have you checked the images directory inside the module for unused
images? (Modules are ZIP archives. You can chech the contents with
any ZIP archive program.)

If you've already done this and found nothing to remove, let me
know where I can find the module and I'll upload it for you.

I've checked and re-sized and a bunch of other stuff. I just thought of a few more things. If they don't work I'll let you know.

Thanks again,

OK. Trimmed and re-sized more stuff and got it down to 72Mb.

Lesson learned: perhaps try projects that are a little less ambitious. :lol:

Thanks again,

I hope you didn't rescale your images just to make them fit. I would
happily have uploaded the module for you---all I wanted was for you
to check if there were unused images first.

I chose my words poorly. I changed the resolution on the map board and trimmed a couple of hexes off the sides and bottom. It doesn't have an effect on the game so it's good to go.

Thanks again
