To zip or not to zip?

Postby battlecat » Wed Apr 02, 2008 12:19 pm

I have a bunch of files all with mixed media. I have for example a snaps folder with both zipped bunches of files and unzipped files.

Is it better to unzip everything and rezip them all in one .zip file or does it not matter?

Wah!Cade won't use any files in zipped archives (or tarballs) at the moment. So your only option is to unzip them....

Ahh well that does explain a lot! :) Personally I don't care either way. I never understood why some programs like many MAME front-ends want everything zipped up. I prefer folders normally.

Thanks!
