On my last RTS, I stored all my images, animated GIF's in my webspace, a folder. (It seemed most convenient for a distributed Java RTS, to pull my media from there)
But, in Pycharm, there can be folders within the project area. If I store my images there, is it as efficient as on my web domain? Where should I keep my project images and sounds? How is the app distributed, like a JAR file? Are there disadvantages?
