[web] Allowing user to download game images

Recommended Posts

How effective would it be if I allow my players to download the entire game's image and then load it from their computer? Would this be a good idea on saving bandwidth?

Wouldn't it then turn into a client-side based game? I don't think it would be worth it as most images are downloaded and then stored in the cache on the client computer anyway.

Okay, look. If you read his question properly he means that before they play, they should download a graphics pack containing the games images. this will be faster because the images are stored on the hard drive not just the cache.
Its better.

I agree with smilybob, it will probly save you bandwidth, but I can see some problems with it, mainly that it takes longer to start to play, but if you have massive amounts of images, and low bandwitdh I would say it is worth it.
