View Full Version : Another Quest Size Question.

OK. I started a quest from the Pure Upgrade, (AKA, revision 3, by Mr. Z. Back then, (AKA, 1 day ago. :sweat: ) It was 950 KB, something like that. Now, one day later, it's 2.1 MB. Needless to say, there's a barrage of those eek smilies comin' this way.

Let's see... what did I do to it..

1) I moved the people from page 3-5 to page 75.
2) I put about 12 or so midis in there. (Not too big.)
3) 10 Strings. Not much.
4) Allotted space for 30 maps. I've only used about one full map's worth though. Well... 1 and a half, maybe.
5) Moved around some more tiles, Imported some map templates and drew a few tiles. Nothing much really.

6) Saved A LOT during the construction of it.

So why is it so big all of a sudden? My bet is on the midis.

Maybe it's because you've set up all that space. ZQuest probably makes the space gains neccesary for the space you've set up, so that's probably why the file's bigger.

You think so? So.. if I reduce the # of maps from 30 to... like... 6, :odd:, it'll go back to "normal? that's a lot of space. Geez..

Yes, it has to do with the map amount. Once I had 20 maps used, and then I raised the number to 30, and the file size jumped through the roof though the 10 new maps were totally empty!

it's the maps. just after we got the 64 maps, I switched ST to use all 64, and it took about a minute to save, when it used to only take about 10 seconds. and those maps had nothing on them

also large empty gaps in the tileset, combos, and palettes can take up enormous amounts of space too.

Really? Are you sure about that? If this is the case, then I think that we all had better get the "move" feature to be fixed perfectly. :rolleyes:
