I have been trying to post Hyrule 1.4 which 11 Megabytes. however, while trying to sumit a file, i get an error. and it says "Unknown Error. An email has been sent to alert us of the problem." is it because the file is too big? Before submiting a file it says that "If you wish to submit a file that is larger than that(8 Megabytes), please contact Angel Spineman." and i already sended him an email about my scenario of 11 Megabytes. when is he going to answer me? I sended him the e mail about 2 days ago? I wish he could answer me sooner.

You have to Winzip it.

I don't think e-mails can handle attachments that big. eg Hotmail can only take 1.024 mb

Posting a file that big will not be a very good idea, since it would take people a long time to download (even with cable modemn, it would be quite long). And as the result, less people would be willing to download it.

I would recommend that you reduce the size by trimming/compressing large files (100K+).

The most common type of file that is often not compressed, yet it unnecessarily take up lots of space, is the sound file. (.WAV, .mp3)

A .wav sound file that is about 10mb can be converted to .mp3 format to reduce its size to under 1mb... taking away a huge, unnecessary 9mb! (That is approximately 90%)

Even with .mp3 files, properly compressing one can reduce around 60% of its original size or more.

Do this: Host a site, make a download for the site where the file is on, give the mirror link to AOMH, and they can put the link for the download...

The scenario that i'm trying to post is hyrule 1.4 the problem is that it includes about 3 songs that are heavy as hell! thats why my scenario is so heavy. so i just thought of lowering the quality of the songs. and Athen, of course the scenario is already the win zip it.

I think Angel Spineman gets a lot of e-mail, auron 2, so he may have simply deleted yours. I mean, he gets the big submissions from all of the HeavenGames site... at least I think so. He might have simply deleted or not been able to reply to your message.

What they mean is to attach the file to the e-mail, state in the message what you're submitting and all the information you would give if you had submitted it through the normal route, like your name, the number of scenarios, the game, the description, and whatnot, Angel Spineman will look over it, and eventually post it.

And if your music is large, just convert it to a lower kbps. Or you can exclude it from the upload, zip it separately, and make it available on a free webpage like Geocities. I suggest the latter, because HeavenGames sometimes denies posting of a campaign if it contains large samples of copyrighted music.
