Cache a gzip compression file (Playmaker)

Post by BISLY »

Hi,
i have posted before about saving files getting too large, and kinda solved it with the gzip compression with your help.
but I have an issue (or its standard..?) that i now I cannot cache a file which is gzip compressed. geting error:

GameObject : FSM : State 5 : CacheFile : System.NotSupportedException: This operation is not supported.

is it truly not supported like it says or its a bug?

And another question, if gzip compresses the file so significantly, why its not the default? what are the disadvantageous of using it?

Thanks,

Hi there,

For the current version this is expected because GZip streams don't have a fixed length, so it's not possible to get the raw bytes using normal methods. However, in 3.3.1f9 we've created a workaround which we will be adding. If you PM me your invoice number I'll be happy to send you this update over.

Compression isn't enabled by default because there is a performance impact to compressing data, and for most people performance is a bigger priority than file size.

All the best,
Joel
