Hello, everyone, I would like some help/advice please ><
My first completed rpg game was a visual novel, it had voice acting, screenshot scenes of 3d models used, and it ended with a video. I was learning as I made it, so only about halfway through did I think to render the screenshots into smaller files. I didn't use any of the sprites, ect, that come with rpg vx ace, and I feel all that data + voice recordings + original music + large data screenshots, and ending animated video are what resulted in a 1hour-ish long game that took about that long to download.

I have a few questions that all relate to eliminating extra data, to help further compress a game? I mostly ask this because in my current project I will have voice acting with several short scenes, both animated and made with directed sprites. There is original music for it to.

Questions:
1- What is the smallest picture format rpg maker can use, that won't look crappy?
2 - What is the smallest video format rmvx can use, but also maintains good quality?
3 - What is the smallest audio format vx can use that still sounds good?
4 - Is there anyway not to compress unused data? (example: textures, character pictures, buildings, sfx, ect)

- Video ... I would say is a mp4 thats been through adobes media encoder. (for example iphone video sent through the encoder can go from 6 gigs to 2 for youtube)
- PNG is the smallest and the best. Avoid Jpeg or gifs if you can.
- MP4 .... Maybe ogg ?? Do some research, I think its own of those.
- I believe there is a way to have the game, when its time to "deploy" remove unused assets. If not you can delete them your self.

I'm still looking at the best way to do the subtitle.
I haven't touched the forum or my project for months because a few people were being a little aggressive when I asked for help

Well after half a year of health problems (that aren't as bad as before), and playing with UE4 & 5... I realized I should finish this project before working on something else. So I decided to upgrade my randomizer. And really just focus on compromising wherever I can to finish the project sooner rather than later. :kaoswt:
hmmm. an art of mine was removed from reddit, for a reason not even listed.
