What size are the files for PBW games? I have a slow conn at home but would like to try one (lg files give me a headach)

The largest size I have seen was one meg (2o person game). Less than 1/2 meg seems to be normal.

The filesize can get over the 1 meg mark when there are large scale battles involved because of the combat logs especially
Generally speaking the files are ~300k for most turns

Files also are also bigger in larger quadrants with many systems.

Thanks, 1 to 2 meg = long D/L (3 to 8 min) but might get into one http://forum.shrapnelgames.com/images/icons/icon7.gif

The largest game turn I've had thus far is 800K. There must have been a few battles going on as that same game is only around 3 or 400K now.
