SWORD: Cluster File Compression

Reported by: SF/noizert Owned by:
Priority: normal Component: Engine: Sword1

Description

It would be nice to support compression
on the cluster files from sword2 and perhaps sword1.

The cluster files (speech and music excluded)
are highly compressable.

I tried compressing them with gzip.

As a result all files compress to at least half their size.

For example:

Quaramon.clu @ 25.6 MB
Quaramon.clu.gz @ 7.3 MB

Please consider this....

speech and music files can be compressed with current CVS
for BS1 and BS2.

As stated in our new FAQ (5.1), we refuse to add support for
gzipped datafiles.
