How to compress your leVVVVVVels
« on: September 10, 2011, 09:38:40 pm »
How do you get your leVVVVVVels to attachment size?

Put them in a compressed folder, and attach the folder in a post. Simple.

Now stop using that confusing-as-hell Dropbox thing.  :violet:

THANK. YOU.

I wish people would realize that this is possible. I've compressed 20x20 levels before and could still attach them.

I don't even know why they can't do this instead of use that annoying Dropbox.

I dunno. Anyone who's downloaded any level from me knows that zip folders work great and they're easy.

 Exactly. I have NO IDEA how to get a leVVVVVVel from Dropbox.

Right click on link.
Click, "Save Target As"
Type "[levelname].vvvvvv" as the file name
- [levelname] is the name of the level itself.
Set, "Save File As" to "All Files"
Save
Play

But, it's a lot harder than using zip folders.

If it's screenshots you're after, don't forget to PNGCrush the images before attaching. If you don't include the chrome (especially if you're on Windows Vista+) a full screenshot can easily be smaller than 10 kB.

I always find it easier to use Imgur for screenshots of levels, errors, bugs, etc...

...

♫Imgur, for all your image-like needs♫

Maybe - usually important stuff is pinned or linked to.
