PostSubject: AEoD v6.02 Alternative Resource Package   Mon Jul 02, 2012 7:55 am

The Alternative Resource Package

What does this nifty little thing do?

It's simple. All it does is add further compression to the AEoD main resource package. It replaces your AEoD.pk3 file with a 7-zipped version which allows your game to run a bit faster, for those of you with older computers, and want to attempt GZdoom's openGL renderer.

DOWNLOAD

Installation instructions:

  • Make sure you have the latest version of AEons of Death fully installed and that you have your launcher set up.
  • Download the compressed version of AEoD's resource package from the link above and put it in the same directory as your original AEoD.pk3
  • Modify your launcher and replace AEoD.pk3 with AEoD.7z


Then, enjoy the carnage!

There have been unconfirmed claims that PK3 has better performance than PK7 due to possibility of unpacking one file without unpacking others.

http://forum.zdoom.org/viewtopic.php?p=612591#p612591
From here, Corak's posts.
Quote :
Just try it. U will see. The performance is ALWAYS faster if Archive is not Solid. It can unpack ANY file in less than Second, so Less memory are used. Most 7z Are have to be Unpacked Totally. Just try to unpack some file from "zbstuffs.pk7"... It have to unpack Whole file till that code..
This is Most problem with AEOD. They too pack with 7z SOLID. The game have to Load WHOLE file in memory... At least 500mb MORE... Any NEW res File Have a Long time to Unpack...

Regardless now you have two options, take which one works best for you.
