That's why you stream the music; people have something called "broadband" nowadays which is usually faster than 128Kbps so they can stream it fine. If it took me an hour to download audio files then I would be pretty screwed doing anything else online.

PNG files have a very little size per pixel ratio, so it doesn't really matter.

Try to load this image. Should be about the size of a tileset, right? Should go really fast - even on my poor connection.

Music and sound files take up 90% or more of every game. The only games that have less than 50% are calculation applications and games that generate their music and graphics at Runtime. (A new zero)

Also, I don't see how discussing one of the points you made from a negative perspective is off topic. Is it only on topic if it is positive?

This is one of the reasons I have a dislike for certain flash movies and games. Noticably bad sound quality; just sounds unprofessional.

If you want to make your sounds and music sound... terrible, then you can compress them on your own with the same effect.

(...)those options make no sense.
No sense? So why games with high scale factor seems to have blurred pixels at edges? Especially visible in Nine Pixel game & Alien Approach.
Neither have blurred pixels.
Must be a linux thing.

Hey, is it just me or is KungFuKirby a little ahead of me? :P

Platform Trouble:
After performance struggles with Flash (only my i7 PC ran the game at full 60 fps) I have decided to ditch it and go with iOS, however this means I currently cannot develop the game because iOS is currently incredibly buggy and refuses to compile even the racing kit. If there is a performance breakthrough on the flash side (like addition of the molehill GPU accel by adobe) then I will develop a flash version alongside iOS for users to play for free (?)

The Ideas of this Game:
Mario Kart has always been one of my favourite games, so this game is basically a glorified fan-game with many a twist. The main things I wanted in this game when I started developing it were powerful Online Multiplayer features and a game that you will want to pick up and start playing on impulse. I have not achieved any of these goals yet, as to achieve the latter I need to add a lot more polish and features to make the environments brim with life and the game seem more immersing. For the former, I may go out of my way to learn how to create multiplayer using actionscript and a simple database server but that may prove to be difficult and beyond my ability and timeframe.

I will write up more soon.
