I think a rule that requires archives (ideally .zip/.rar/.7z) for download links would make sense.
I approve the idea, but want to make the additional request to only allow .zip and .7z
, and to explicitly ban .rar
in the future. Reason for that is that RAR is a proprietary format with limited support on certain operating systems. Opening those files can be a pain.
Another reason is that in the future, it is planned to add the PhysFS Library to TheXTech
(for the purposes of both, Archiving and Coop Netplay). It will allow episodes inside 7z and ZIP Archives to be played without unpacking
, which is not possible with RAR files.
