Attachments in the Forum

I raised the limit for attachments, I think it allows .zip .rar etc also.

What attachments we need to support?

Currently SPACE is not an issue, I have 25gb space, and currently I am using 2.5gb and its included the www.mtxworld.dk homepage and files.

The only other file type that we should consider (if not already done) is any MTX specific file types that would be more convenient not to be zipped up.

Everything else can be zipped up.

a DAT or ROM type would be nice, I tried posting a rom a while back, and ended up renaming it as a PDF I think !

Personal I dont like ZIP that much, I have been using RAR for years :)

But I prefer files to be archived in some way, also for security. I know it should be rare a file are damaged, but if a ZIP or RAR file are damaged you will know when you extract it :)

Have to check admin interface to see if its possible to add .MTX .ROM etc.

For my own back-ups I prefer RAR. But when sharing files, ZIP is preferred simply because not everyone has or uses a RAR unpacker. ZIP being older is more widespread.
