1) What are the current versions?
The GamebaseST download page mentions 1.1 front end with 1.2b database and extras (+ emule link).
The 1.2b downloads take you to gbst.atomas.com where you can download 1.1 front end and 3.1d database & games - but no extras. I'm assuming these are the latest versions?
2) What's happening to the 3.1d extras?

3) rar files gbst.atomas.com
Looking at the rar file - some of the zip files within the rar file are actually larger compressed within rar than uncompressed.
If the games were re-zipped using zipmax, then maybe zip file with the files "just added - non compressed" would be better? And maybe a seperate download for the emulators/scripts/music etc?
Zipmax *is* zip. So any unzip program can dezip zipmax archive, because they really are zip files.ham90mack wrote:My opinion about ZIPMAX (whatever it is) is that it doesn't sound like that compression format is used by too many people. Therefore, it is less likely that as many computers have the ability to decompress the archive without installing extra software compared to zip and rar. Unless, of course, it is just a zip archive maker.
Unfortunately correct. Those 3 zips were already corrupted before I upload them and rar them.aag wrote:* Games\ST\M\Mean 18 - The Ultimate Edition.zip -> UNZIPPING FAILED
