Having a little trouble opening the last lot of downloads......

fix_Visual_Pinball_v9.xx_-_PinMAME_FullScreen_Tables_(2011-07-30)

Im getting an unspecified error, when I try to open the archive.....

So, currently re downloading, as obviously one of the files Is corrupted.....but which one...UNSPECIFIED ERROR!!

Anyway, Its a bit slow atm, so just letting you know, I am onto It, and the reason Im a bit slow...

All the others are fine, however, with the new updated dats, I now have a few missings again....but havent had a chance to take a look for any myself, as of yet..

Its hard, as most of the posts here, happen, overnight, while I am sleeping......so Im unable to reply quickly..

Had some fills I was gonna do today.....woke this morning ready to upload, and they were already filled..

Its a credit to this small community..

Cheers

I knew someone would mention this.
Downloading from different hosts can lead to this, as some may escape/substitute certain characters with others, causing extraction from split archives (which is dependent on the filenames to be identical) to fail. Spot the difference, it's hard to see...

Exactly, WinRAR will let you search for the "missing" part if it doesn't find them automatically (all named the same), while 7-Zip will just stop extracting.

BTW, I forgot to post the CRC32s for the last multi-part file before deleting the files (sorry about that), but I think they uploaded correctly.


OTOH, I updated to new Yoshi's Pinball DATs and I'm currently filling some missing (VPForums daily limit is holding me back, but I was able to complete some of the smallest DATs).

Ive left the Future Pinball fixdats out of this thread, as there Is another thread, dealing specifically with them...

Thanks Guys...
