i cant run the thing right now, im using the schools Win2k....but whatever this is, 1.9 gig compressed to 64K HAS to contain a lot of hot air.

too bad, the comp's got only DX7. :p but ill take it home with me though, and check it out.

anyway....released last year? i wonder why i haven't heard of it then....a compression breakthrough like that, if true, should've been widespread by now.

From my understanding they used a modified version of a packing program called UPX, the info is on there page whose URL is included in the ZIP. The need to release there versiojn or sell it or something. That kind of compression needs to be out in the public...

What they say is not correct. Ever heard of looping stuff? All it is about 4 scenes looped with different camera angels. Not 1gig of stuff. If it was actually over 1gb of stuff compressed to 64k imagine how much GBs worth of data Max Payne or Q3 is!

The file he attached was just a PC demo (a little movie with some music to show what the developer of it could do) but it has trouble with some video cards so that may be why you got the screwed up screen.
