Master list of Badly Archived Files

Here's my list of files that don't open with Stuffit 5.5. This means that anyone not using a Mac cannot use the files.

http://macintoshgarden.org/games/drawmaze (sit file)
http://macintoshgarden.org/games/bomba (zip file)
http://macintoshgarden.org/games/bouncing-balls (zip file)
http://macintoshgarden.org/games/break-the-bricks (zip file)
http://macintoshgarden.org/games/bubba (zip file)
http://macintoshgarden.org/games/daleks (zip file)
http://macintoshgarden.org/games/destroyer (zip file)

I'm pretty sure that it's the same person uploading all of those useless ZIP files. Can someone send him an e-mail?

That one expands fine in the emulators, also. The others? No...

Daleks unzipped fine under Tiger Classic. I made a .sit file of the unzipped game+the zip file and reloaded because the icon is lost when you compress then expand with stuffit.

The icon shouldn't get lost. Leave it on the list and I'll look at it once I have free time at my Mac.

Well, the [(zipped + stuffed)stuffed] version is less then 20 KB anyway.

Destroyer is probably one of those games that requires a Mac Plus, or Mini vMac, to function.

Perfect, Toprak. Daleks works great. That's all it takes to fix the downloads!

Thanks!!

All zipped stuff on this thread turned into sit in the same way: [(zipped + stuffed)stuffed]

You're the greatest Toprak.
