    Hello,


    I am in the proccess of creating a new release group, in the group we will release via bittorrent Games, Movies, and Programs. Now I would like to have a way to compress files for internet distribution and can't help but notice Myth's amazingly small file size mainly due to thier dos based compression. I am prepaired as a last resort to design my own compression suite... But as many programmers know that can be very time consumoing, and i really need something reliable to hit all the snags of downloading etc... and come out working. I would like the compression ability however to be as great as possible... this means to be compressing all types of media that may come with a game or a movie, or even apps. It must be able to work on all windows systems, or as close to as many as possible. (no don't worry if it doesn't work on windows 3.0... ), I am planning to be very Windows based, so don't worry about Mac, or even linux for that matter. How long it takes to decompress is also not a facter, as long as it doesn't take years... the myth compression could extract very easy, and i wouldn't be surprized if i get refered back to it, but i don't want to be found ignorant when thier is a better way. I would really enjoy not having to give the team the responsibility of also haveing to script our own compression method/implement...

    First off, i want to thank anyone who even replys to this with constructive critcism.

    Secondly i would like to bow down and praise who ever manges to get a good compression method established!

    Thank you!!!!
