Hey guys, I just got a quick question.... With files like FULL INSTALLS which are 300mb+ , would u rather have them zipped/compressed to make them smaller and faster to dl??? Not to mention zipped files have less errors/bugs than normal ones???

The .exe files already have their own compression routines. No need for additional compression, might corrupt the files.
