How can I make it so my games are not so dang big? My game has 10 levels with may movies. I'm on level one and it is a whoping 9,400kb. Is there anyway I can filter out all the crap and make my game a smaller download.

MMF/TGF do not automatically add crap. All the crap that there is was added by you.

there isn't really a way to filter out the crap of games, but in your case, you can just delete the complete file.

Ok first of all thanks Kris for actually replying for what I asked.

I know I added the crap but is there a way to minimize the file because you wusses here always get so mad about a long download. Just start the download and leave for a while.

And hayo, what the heck did I do to you? Did I make some crappy games. Who cares, just ignore them you jerk.

step one: Ctrl+A
step two: Delete

easy as 1, 2, and not even a step three

There are loads of ways to make your game smaller like using less colours and taking out unused events or objects. Usually it makes almost no difference.
Is the total size of your movies something like 9 meg? if so then all you can do is sort out the movie files.

by movies, he means 640x480 active objects that float in the middle of the screen

You'd probably get more of an enthusiastic and a kinder response if you weren't the type of person to do the opposite yourself. I don't think Hayo was being unfair at all compared to what I've seen you write.

But anyway, make sure your images are cropped, clip the end off sound files that get interrupted and therefore not used, change the amount of colours you're using to a lower setting, use a permanent active object's alterable values rather than counters when possible, use backdrops rather than actives when possible, paste enemy bodies or shrapnel to the background rather than creating an active object, remove any dud events, and compile it in MMF rather than TGF if you can. Each one of those should help keep size within reason. The fact you've got movies in your game doesn't help either, you could try a 'cutscene' with objects already stored within the game instead.

Not a good idea to call us all wusses if you want us to download your game

Circys Great Idea:

1. Upload a version WITH the movies
2. Upload a version WITHOUT the movies

I'm quite sure that more people will download the version without movies, because the filesize is smaller. Its not movies that make a game

When I think of Nuklear and him filtering his games, it makes me think of those grill shaped things you get in urinals that catch all the tab-ends and chewing gum.

Haha! Why not just skip the filter and send it all down the drain?

SUGGESTION: Remove movies and don't use those 3 minute WAV files you converted from MP3s.

When I was still at school the network was checked periodically for MP3s, which were then deleted, so someone in my computing class had the bright idea of converting his stored MP3 collection in to WAVs. Unfortunately he didn't realise that after converting them he was taking up 2GB of the network space. He wasn't too popular with the teachers.
