Optimized graphics

Post by Skiessi » Thu Feb 28, 2008 6:36 pm

I optimized the PNG files in the graphics folder with OptiPNG to reduce file size.

cool, but consider that every change in current graphics (tilesets, sprites, etc) destroy your precious optimizations. Anyway OptiPNG is nice way to reduce filesize without loosing quality (or information) of image. But in my opinion is too early to filesize optimizations - it can be done via bash script - and it really doesn't take much time. However I like your idea.

They're not precious, I just did it and couldn't commit to SVN so I posted them here.

I guess it should be done for releases. No good reason not to do so.
This message used to be meaningful.

Yep, it would slightly decrease the size of releases. Maybe we should consider making scripts to auto optimalization of graphics before release? Some bash or perl script could make that process easier and faster.

Once we actually have a script to release dynamic updates, it would indeed be a good idea to automatically optimize the PNG images in it.
