Beta test : Graphic Pack (How to speed up games...)


Hi Everyone

Instructions

The goal of a graphics pack is to host all the pictures from Webquest in your hard drive. This way the bandwidth is saved and that will speed up the game. I heartily recommend to test this new feature.
This feature is in beta version, which is why I posted the instruction in the forum.
Give me your feedback

Instructions

Download the [sign in to see URL] (about 32 mo). You must have winrar
Unpack in the root of your hard drive C:
This way you will have c:\Webquest
Go to
[sign in to see URL]
Log in with this address and have fun

If you use Firefox please do the following
Use Graphic Pack with Mozilla FireFox 1.5
To use the graphic pack with this browser, you must do these manipulation:
Open FireFox
in the adress field, type about:config
With the right Click, go to New then StringEnter [sign in to see URL] then OK

Just to emphasise that this really does work, and is pretty essential now that we have got 50-odd games ongoing, with nearly 70 players!
Remember that the idea of Webquest is for everyone to have several games going on at once, so that they've always got a move to make. If this is to work, the new graphics pack is very useful!

Yay! I followed the instructions, got it working (which is good for me) and am very impressed with the speed difference.

Well done!

The graphic pack is available for the main game...
I remove the 3G folders to avoid confusions.
Please update your bookmark
Follow the instructions in the game

User of the 3G interface (First beta testers only)
Please go here and save this image in your Webquest folder
[sign in to see URL]
That will avoid to download the pack again

Thanks to give me feedbacks...

Re: Beta test : Graphic Pack (How to speed up games...)


Ok, I downloaded the graphic pack. However, now I am loading really slowly on any screens containing graphics, and none of the graphics are showing, just the blank placeholders. I think I might have messed up the directory path when I activated it. Is there a way to change/reselect the path? I don't get the link/option any more, it just says the Graphic pack is activated.
