Either they'll be really bad quality, or anyone with a slower connection will be watching a fantastic slideshow.

with 65 megs in missions (without voice yet) and still climbing we need to trim the size corners somewhere.

Don't.  If people are willing to download Inferno they'll be willing to download this.

I honestly thought you were kidding, Raa.  If you guys do this, I will have to video-capture all the cutscenes at the university studio and convert them before I play the campaign.  And I will not be happy.

Inferno... pleh. Please don't mention that here again.

Anyways, the decision was made quite some time ago... Before I even joined up. So don't look at me...

Anyway, what would you rather have, the 200+ MB to DL for the entire campaign, with high quality cutscenes, or the compact 125Mb zip file we're planning on releasing?

The 200+ MB one. Definitely. Why couldn't you at least have the high quality cutscenes as a seperate download or something?

Why? We're going with high quality 1024x1024 textures for every ship, plus shines and glows, in targa format...  Alot of files...

You really should have cottoned onto that, peeps - the only thing more distressing he could have said was thaey were going to distribute via Steam

Indeed, we figured that everyone likes Steam so we chose it but our steam versio is going to be something really wierd and diffrent but atlest it works. (somehow)

I'd like to point out that neither I, nor the MT staff have any gripe against Inferno. It is a wonderful campaign, the staff are hard working, and dedicated, and some of the more skilled in the community. Any comments such as the one above are made in pure jest. (I make comments like that, because many newer members who come here because of Inferno, compare every other campaign against it.)  Once again, if anyone has been offended by such remarks here or on other forums, I do appologize, as no ill intentions were meant.
