ZIP archives are nothing wrong. I know - lost forks. Its wrong when inside are executive apps files. In this case: Toast file inside.
1. Unpack ZIP archives by Stuffit Expander or (recomended) MacZip
2. Run Toast, choose this .toast file

P.S. Archives packed and opened by MacZip not lost forks. You know?
I used this to moved from Mac to minivmac

SHiNShU:

First, let me say that I UNDERSTAND why you're upset because I have a similar problem. I use a PowerMac G4 Quicksilver. Most apps are made to only work on Intel processors so I can't use them and I get frustrated. But I don't get upset at the developer who's providing the app just because I can't afford a new computer; It's not their fault.
The fact is that your are using an old operating system. Too old to be useful in todays world. OS 9 was discontinued in 2001 for crying out loud, it's been TEN years! You can't POSSIBLY expect that people would just assume that they need to package these for OS 9? Heck, my old iMac G3 can't even get to this site because it's too modern. This is the way it is with technology (Same goes for Windows users too.) if you don't have a computer that's newer than 5 years old, you will run into problems.
Apple doesn't support anything before OS X Leopard, and Microsoft doesn't support anything before Windows XP. And why should they? If they did, and kept them up-to-date then nobody would buy a new computer because they wouldn't have to. ALL software developers recognize this so they create software that works with the newest OS and that's it.
You know what I do when someone writes an app for Intel only? I contact them and find out if they'll re-purpose it to be PPC or Universal. I don't complain and insult them.

So here's what you need to do SHiNShU;
#1: Deal with the fact that your computer is outdated and live with what you've got.
#2: TALK TO the person who packaged whatever software you're trying to download, and see if they'll send you it in a .sit or whatever format you want.

On a side note, Windows has supported .EXE since Windows 3.x. In other words, EVERY OTHER WINDOWS USER USES .EXE'S.

i appreciate people for uploadin games online and i know they do hard work at doin so. its just that when people blindly ignore that .zip and .rar dont work under mac os 9.x (not all of us use os x you know...thats like how windows users think everybody else uses .exe's too), i feel they owe us an apology for puttin up incompatible formats and ive yet to hear that "sorry" from them. im sorry for the namecallin, but im disgusted by stuff that doesnt work and unless people dont know any better than to upload things that only work for some people and not all (which i dont believe 1 bit, because they seem like otherwise smart individuals), theres no excuse for their careless uploadin. we all know that .zip's erase resource forks of their contents and should also know that .rar's basically do the same thing only they sometimes split up the archive into a bunch of chunks, which cant be rejoined with stuffit because the app doesnt support that feature. yes, single piece .rar's work, although there's not many of those these days and .sit does the same thing more or less. no idea why stuffit didnt make support for multi-piece .rar's, other than my guess they saw no need for it at the time because it was for a long time a windows-only format like the .zip one. same goes with euryale...when she acknowledges that some people dont own pc's (and therefore dont have winzip, a program that can decompress multiple parts) and decides to upload the whole thing as a .sit file, then she'll get an apology from me.
like i said in that other thread, if i had windows, wtf am i doin all this work to d/l a mac game in parts that need to be reassembled as a file that still would need to be burned to a cd and then put in my mac to install from, when all i'd need to do is just simply d/l the pc version and play it, probably without all that extra rigamarole i'd need to go through to get it workin on my mac? it just seems like she wants to make a bunch of work for other people to have to do, rather than just let them get the game and play it. i even tried takin the parts to virtual pc and let it extract the .nrg. what happened then? the .nrg wont mount in disk copy (presumably because windows killed the resource forks of the file, thereby makin it corrupted). no, i dont have kind words to say when i go through a lot of crap, all for nothin. even with a fast connection and virtual pc havin lots of memory, it didnt change how long it all took. i doubt (although i wasnt able to test it) real windows and winzip would be much faster or have a different result when brought back on my mac.

SHiNShU - People are spending their free time to get games online. They invest(ed) money to buy them, they image them, they upload them. It takes a long time to do that. And you get all the games here for free. After all what they have done for others, calling them "simpleton" isn't really a nice thing to do? I understand you're very unhappy about the bandwidth limitation (so am I) but keep cool. I feel a "sorry" would be a good way to react here in this thread, as well as one to Euryale over in the Carmageddon thread.

Could be righ there Shinshu, what format did you use for all your uploads / contributions ?

SHiNShU's picture
by SHiNShU - 2010, July 16 - 3:42am

what the hell am i supposed to do with this? are these parts of 1 archive? you simpleton, stuffit cant open split archives! you act like we all use os x and these games are for os 9 and under anyway. you have to unify the parts into 1 sit archive and put it up on mediafire or somewhere that supports large files. i was tellin this person who uploaded carmageddon 1 that multiple parts archives cant be opened by stuffit AND the way rar programs dont work on os 9. (no idea why but they just cause error -9099 i think it is.

Doesn't work. Could you make it into a stuffit file?

No, but you could try ZipIt to expand it.

You're right, it should be made with Toast before zipping.

It's a zip file. The programs contained within don't work now.
