Compressed Game Files
Game files can be compressed to improve transfer speed between servers. The compressed file should not include the TCA.* sub folders.
First make sure the game's folder is not empty. You can run the compress scripts located in /home/tcadmin/tcafiles/games. The file name is compress_<game>.sh. If you run the compress script and the folder is empty it will create an empty file.
This example compressed the files for Counterstrike.
cd /home/tcadmin/tcafiles/games ./compress_cs-linux.sh
Go to C:\TCAFiles\Games\<game>. Select all files and folders except the TCA.* folders.
To compress the files to ZIP right click on the selected files and select Send To > Compressed (zipped) Folder. Move the created zip file to C:\TCAFiles\Games. Name it <game>.zip
If you have Winrar installed right click on the selected files and select Add To > "<game>.rar". Move the created rar file to C:\TCAFiles\Games.
