Skinsite: zipped file for download becomes huge.

Postby WillyP » Mon Feb 07, 2011 1:06 am

When uploading a skin to the skin site, the skin uploads, unzips, and the zip file is renamed with _skin added to the file-name, ie 'myskin.zip' becomes 'myskin_skin.zip'. However, the zip file becomes huge, today I uploaded a skin zip of 261kb, it became over 3,000kb. This is the third or fourth time it has happened.

The skin is unzipped and copied to the skins folder correctly, no problems installing the skin, the problem occurs when the files are re-zipped or the file is renamed. Only the file for download is affected.

The zip file was created with the default Windows XP file compression utility.

I was able to ftp a replacement, so no rush to get this fixed.

WillyP, I'd forgotten about this. I'll try to take a look at it when I can. Remind me if I don't get back to you in the next week or so.

No hurry, it's not like we are getting a ton of submissions anyway. :?
