It seems that File Uploading has some kind of problem. I tried three times to upload a file for War of the Ring and it always appears after 4-5 minutes, a blank page with the message: "No File Found" or something like that. I've tried changing the name and location of the file, and it also appeared... what's the matter?

It is likely a web limit and the browser is timing out due to the file being too large. Try zipping the file or a segmented Zip file.

Hi

I tried to upload a full version of the Dungeon Lords rule book translated to Hungarian but the browser (Chrome and FF) said: The page is unavailable.
The pdf file is 9 Mb, and in nowadays it is a small file ( with 20Mb/s upload speed it takes nothing to upload). Can I upload this file without separation, zipping or anything else?
If an admin can make it please send me a TG with instructuons and I share the file with him/her.

Thanks.

Originally the rule pdf is 23 Mb, and 9 Mb is the final version, can not be decresed anymore. (of course without loss of the quality)

Could always host elsewhere and add the URL to the weblinks section? I prefer dropbox's public folder for my personal hosting needs.

Over 4 years and the limitation of 5 Mb for files uploads has not been changed. We were hoping that the same file uploader used for photos would be made available for files, but no go so far.

Actually our max upload size is set to 16 MB - so I'm not exactly sure what the trouble is. Can you send me a link to the file in a public dropbox?

Aldie, the file upload times out at about 5 to 8 Mb file size pretty consistently, depending on network speed of the person uploading before timeout. We need some sort of uploader that keeps the web connection open to allow larger files like the image uploader.

I tried uploading a 5.7mb file over the weekend. The file uploaded fine but I got this GeekMail a few days later:

Quote:
We're sorry that we couldn't use the recent file that you uploaded, and it was removed it from the system.
Filename: Drizzt_Basic.zip
file is too large

Sincerely,
BGG Admins

I had a similar issue a couple weeks ago, I added a file to a ZIP file and resubmitted it to an already existing file (as opposed to a new file) and got the same rejected GeekMail.

I've uploaded files this large before and never got rejected by size. Is this a new stipulation?
