or maybe think about byte patcher that can compare byte between a two big files and then you upload the patcher version
i don't think a byte pacher will do the trick.... because its often far from acurate.
a dif file though COULD perhaps help A litle bit though i think the work wouldn't be worth the few extra megs saved...
I do agree that the download size is a problem. One thought is to release a crosslinked ISO 9660 - those are easy to create, and at least you would get "all" USP versions in one download - more value for money.
Another thought on the matter is, that most ppl probably use the USP's on 2K Pro, and don't care about the server variants. And a Pro-only variant of each USP will definately be smaller.
@gurgle, someone has picked up a nice project to create a 2k-ize patcher for win2k... screenshots look promising...
another thing involes that BTS-driver packs now supports creating a fully-slipstreamd driver-base...
(drivers.cab dosnet.inf etc), so my question for you is, witch types of drivers do you prefer build in windows and witch you want out (for now)
i myself would thing that, it would be best to start with basics, Chipset, VGA Sound LAN PCMCIA and SATA ... and fully removing printer + scanner drivers... do you agrea?
I quite agree - SATA is however more important than PCMCIA I believe. Chipsets, SATA, Video (incl monitors), LAN 10/100/1000, Audio (full AC97 at least). Donno about printers and scanners yet
