    i think that 45mb is about 300 blocks( more accurate about 297) so that about 7 blocks for 1mb if my findings are accurate, it might be more bout 5/6 blocks

    Due to shared APP files between channels, it's hard to estimate how many blocks something will take up from the wad file size.

    It's easiest to calculate using about 8 blocks for every 1MB of data. 128kb per block is about exactly what it is. Also remember that even if there's only a slight amount of extra data it will take up another ENTIRE block. so a file that was 1026kb is going to take up 9 blocks. Round up, not down.
