unable to upload screen shots in threads

Recommended Posts

I've tried to upload some screen shots for some plane I have questions for. But I get an error message saying the files are too big. They're just screen shots from the game, the same ones I've always used. Has something been change???

Quack74,

 

do you try to upload bmp (large) files? Or you convert them to jpg (smaller) format? Also there were some problems after the servers maintenance, preventing some attachments to be uploaded.

They are all Jpegs. The same I've always used. Directly from the ingame screenshot section. I convert them to Jpegs. But no matter what size I make the file I get an error message saying the files too big. It has to be a problem CombatAce.

I haven't gotten a reply on the staff forum. Have you tried the Bug Report/Suggestions forum?

But I get an error message saying the files are too big.

 

I tested the forum and it seems to be working correctly. Can you do the following for me?

 

Reply to this message. Just the below the box you type in you'll see the "Attachments" Window. It's where you normally upload screenshots. On the left it should say something like.

 

 

Attachment space used 4.01MB of 8.00MB

 

 

If the first number is larger or close to the second number you've reached the maximum upload limit. Currently your user group is set to a maximum of 8.0MB of upload space. There are a few things we can try at this point.

 

1. Manage your attachments - You can manually remove older attachments by using this link. http://forum.combatace.com/index.php?act=U...amp;CODE=attach -or- you can us the "My Controls" link at the top of the forums and find the manage attachments link in the left navigation bar toward the bottom under options.

 

2. Instead of using up attachment space for images and if you upload a lot of images I might suggest creating your own album in the gallery. You can use the "My Controls" link at the top of the forums then from the left navigation bar under Invision Gallery click the link for "Your Albums". -or- click here: http://forum.combatace.com/index.php?autoc...&req=albums. Once you've created a personal album you can upload unlimited images to it and then link them directly into your posts.

 

3. We can negotiate for more space on the HDDs for users. Suggestions welcome.

I'll try. The message I've been getting says "Attachment space used 8.06MB of 8.00MB"

Thats with 1 Jpg image from my screen shots. No different than what I've done in the past.

It seems to work for you though. I even tried from another computer. Same results.

 

 

 

Here's what I just got trying to upload a screen shot:

 

 

Attachment space used 8.06MB of 8MB

attach_error.png Upload failed. The file was larger than the available space

 

Just one jpeg screen shot
