Map Gab / Re: FTP uploading issues for Super NES and PC

Wow, it's been something like 15 years since I've even touched an FTP utility so I won't be of much help. Apparently, there are no technical limits to the number of files in an FTP directory, but there is a limit to the number of files that some programs like Internet Explorer can comfortably display before slowing to a crawl, which tends to be around 5 000 - 10 000 files.

Short of completely overhauling the way the map files are stored and accessed, a quick and dirty way of solving the problem would be to split the directory for a given system in two or more subdirectories, like A-M and N-Z, and doing a mass find/replace to update the link addresses.

Of course, I might also be talking out of my ass since technology has most likely moved quite a bit since my college days.

i was searching on how to use FTP utility and i am fortunate to discover this thread. i will take note all of this because i believe this infos will really be a big help. hopefully have a positive result. thanks!
