    I know a lot of people hated that MV didn't come with all the resources initially and thus bitched about it til they got what they wanted, but I know a lot of people who aren't happy with the one-file download that is so big... so much so that they don't want to download the trial at all and thus are missing out on trying the engine for themselves: possible customers down the drain.

    Is there any way to have a series of smaller files, perhaps? Not everyone can just download 1G+ in a go, after all.

    (Sorry if this is the wrong area but I figured this was the best place for it.)

    The reason for RMMV having a large file is because of the RTP being built in, I'm pretty sure it's worth the space.

    I know why it is, but people are being driven away due to the size. Which isn't good.

    It's normal to have an application with the size of 400MB, take note that other game making engines require 1 GB hard disk space or more.

    I suggested internally that MV might have been better with an ability to choose between different base projects based on different themes (like Fantasy or Science Fiction), only to be told that this was already suggested by Degica employees during the programming stage but the Kadokawa decided against such an option.

    Ah, thanks, Cel. Like I said, I wasn't sure where to put this. ^.^;

    Even if such option existed, people would still complain about it.

    "Where are all the other resources that everyone else got?"

    "Why do I have to download them separately?"

    "Why don't they bundle them all together into one bundle to I don't have to install everything manually?"

    Thing is, Ksi, people will find a reason to gripe and moan.  I know these are potential customers, but if they aren't happy from the get go, they never will be.  It's the same for any product.

    You should use a torrent. Then people can specify which packs they want to include or not.

    Another person posted this:

    @djDark: At least give an option for people with lower internet speeds. For all that most people have high speed there are certain countries and places that do not get high speed. They shouldn't be left out because people bitched about not getting everything (honestly, they shouldn't have been able to imo. If they wanted everything they should have bought the dayum program. Trial versions are supposed to be a taste test, not the full bloody thing. :/ )

    1.1 gigs is ridiculous for a trial, imo. Seeing that it takes me 23 hours to DL with my current connection and having an extremely limited bandwidth cap of 2 gigs, well--

    Libby's/Ksi is right though. People shouldn't have stuff handed to them on a silver platter because they whined and moaned. If you want something, pay for it. And iirc, the old trial was only 560 or so mbs. ><
