Wonder if it would be possible to add a function of downloading ALL sets in one go?
Or, even better, to download ALL sets that meet certain criteria, e.g.

"All sets that have a rating more than B-", or
"All sets published after <date>".

That would give all users a possibility of playing even when the server is down, or in the case Ricochet (Infinity) goes out of business (which we hope not will happen in the near future :) )

Of course you can download a number of sets for future play, but the other function would make things simpler.

I don't make level sets anymore. I moved my interests to video editing.

Edited! This post used to say my 70-or so sets took up 130MB, but that was the size of my whole Infinity program folder, with all the custom music I added. The actual size of my Rounds folder is around 12MB #-o . The download of all levels on the server would probaly be a few gigabytes, but nowhere nearly as big as I originally thought.

Some time ago, I downloaded all sets above a certain rating (don't remember which, but only Infinity), and put them on a separate external harddisk. It took some time but not intolerably long time ... ;-)

Ricochet sets tend not to be large, and so download in a matter of seconds on most modern internet connections. Seconds after seconds of each set, and downloading many sets will take several minutes. I also have external HDDs, but the casing that connects them to USB broke #-o . Perhaps by using 4GB or above USB Flash pendrives, I could do a bulk download of specific sets or two. I have plenty of cheap 2.0 drives, after all :D . You could even use DVDs - 4GB, a DVD's standard capacity is more than good enough for several hundred, if not even a thousand of two, of quality Ricochet levels 8) . Downloading everything on the server is a different story, however. As I said, 4GB is probaly good for 1000-3000 Ricochet levels. Meanwhile, the server counts a little more than 69k levels, many with scripting and other such stuff that increases the size even more :o .

I'll actually try doing so. I'll install RI on a laptop (so downloading won't mess up anything on my PC), download about 4GB of levels I like (if there ain't enough I'll just look for good rated levels), and burn them to a DVD. If I find a site that I could upload such a big file to, I may even share the file.
Edit: I gave up. Ricochet sets are very small, it would take forever to download so many sets manually since RI doesn't have a bulk function.
