Hey ppls
I was foolin around with a custom radio Mod (this one) and asked myself a few questions.
Searched a bit and couldnt find any answeres, thought maybe somebody could help me with this.
What i wanna know is, if there are problems with bigger .wav files in a custom radio.
So lets say i just add a complete radio show, as one file, into my custom radio.
Will there be any problems?
I guess it will have to load the file ingame and bigger files will take a while, so logically 3 or 4 bigger files would generate huge gaps between the files, aye?
So 100 smaller .wav files of 30-50mb are better then 4 700mb files...?
But maybe it doesnt matter, cause it will be loaded in the background while another one is alrdy playin?
Thx in advance :)

Greetz,

The game has to load that huge file and well.. I'm really sure that it's performance friendly. I think you really should convert it to .xwm. The size limit of a BA2 file is around 4.2 GB by the way.

In my opinion, it's far better.

Yay thx 4 the reply :D
I guess .xwm is smaller than .wav.
Okay i will try that, the Mod should work with .xwm files.
