Is the game 1.6GB on Steam? The console versions are over 8 gigs. That reeks of something terribly wrong if its true. Super, ultra, mega compression??

works fine so far.

i think the size comes from the tracks
accoring to bugbear all tracks in the campagne are made using the editor

And the editor doesn't work...

Crashes every time I launch it.

Not at all. 8 GB is the size of the discs in Xbox 360, but they're filled with padding. HDD installations for consoles are always different for each game, and for this one, it's like 1.6 GB.

What is this "padding" you're referring to?

Dummy data to push the game data to the outter edge of the disc for better load times.
PS2/Wii games also do this. Some PS1 and Dreamcast games probably also did this aswell although I'm not 100% sure.

Ah! I never even thought of that. How does being at the out edge of the disc decrease load times? Obviously the disc is spinning faster so does that mean it's the disc speed keeping us from better load times and not the lasers ability to read the data at higher speeds?
