I got the first CD from Bill. I live in Brazil and it took two weeks to arrive. Everytime I had to reinstall everythign I would do it form teh CD it s soo much easier. Everything together you just choose it and click install. There you go!
And you don t ahve to search for tthe zip file of teh mod you want. It makes everything easier.

The radio chatter is a very cool mod too!

I think I saw the axis pack still at http://www.wwiifighters.com It may still be available under the miscellaneous section under mods. Don't know about the allied pack.

I tried to upload it for everybody the other night, but I can't. The file is large and must have exceeded my upload capability by a couple hundred kilobytes. Sorry.

Skycat,

How about splitting it into 2 or 3 parts?

Just a thought, since we unzip to the Data directory anyway, we could unzip all the parts to an intermediate file, then transfer them to the data directory....

The zip (a nearly 10Mb zip file) contains two items: 1) a complete Music.ELB file and 2) a README text file. Seeing as how the README is only a few kilobytes, splitting would be rather pointless

Skycat , you can do a multipart ZIP. WHen zipping, you get the option to limit the size of the final zip files. Set this to , say, 5Mbs, then you'll get a two-part zip file.
Works great

How would the two halves be reassembled then? Would they work just by both sitting in the Data folder together? Or would unzipping the second part automatically fuse it to the first part?

You need to download all the parts obviously, then when unzipping, it is automatically recognised as a multipart archive and "glued" back together again.

Rotor,
The Allied Traffic file is 12Mb zipped and double that unzipped. My e-mail only allows files up to 1.5Mb. Sorry, I can't e-mail to you unless I figure out how to split up the file into smaller zips ...

When I get that problem solved, then it will be easier and better for all here if I upload it to my web account as "Part 1" and "Part 2" instead of breaking the Traffic Mods into six or seven zips just to email to one person -- Capice?

I'm going to my older, dusty Win98 computer to see if it's .zip compress/extract program will allow me to do what Swiper has advised; my XP system treats zips a little different than programs like WinZip. Just so you get an idea of what the problem is, the download is basically one large MUSIC.ELB file and not a bunch of smaller .wav files.

Thanks Skycat, I understand.
I checked my data folder and I have an .ELB file listed as Allied_Mod_Music.elb
It's 42 Mb...It may be the elb with the alled radio traffic, since I have overwritten it with the axis traffic.
I'll check it out and see what gives...

I GOT IT!!!

I used HJSplit to split up the 42 Mb file.
I have it in 11 zipped files, ranging from 300 Kb to 2.9 Mb
I included the HJSplit as well, since you'll need that to join it back together.
Anyone want it, let me know. Be warned, it's 11 zipped files, maybe someone has a host site we could send it to.

Regards,

Rotor
