Would it be possible for the moderators to include the option for submitting 7zip files to AoMHeaven? 7zip is a much more effecient compressing program then for example winrar.

Regards,

.zip is the standard format for submission to the downloads section. If your files are within the size limit you can submit them as one .zip file.

Yes that's right, but what about .7z?
When I compress a file with winrar to make a .zip file it is bigger then when I compress it with 7zip to make a .7z file.

Those are two seperate compression programs.
Can you include this?

Do you have Windows? I think it comes with its own zip handling.

Yes I have windows. You think? I tried with winrar and another program and when those programs compressed a file,the file is much bigger then when I compress with 7zip. Maybe one of you try it out yourself. With this option you can submit even larger files with better compression. I think it is a great option to include.

I agree, .7z is more advanced and 7zip even faster in compressing/decompressing. Dis is the future.

There are a lot of people who are bad with computers, it was hard enough to explain zip to them.. so add a link to 7zip or something if windows cant do it on it's own by now.

I hope the moderaters consider this en maybe even trying to implement the 7zip submission. It's indeed more advanced...

While we wait for an answer I'm just a little perplexed because so far you haven't mentioned Windows's own zipping feature. You are aware it has one right?

Yes I'm aware of it and I didn't mentioned it because I already tried that method and it will have the same size as when I compress it with Winrar.
Only 7-zip will compress it better then these 2 methods.
It's a reasonable change in file size when compressing it with 7-zip.

So hopefully it could be done.
