http://www.homeactionreplay.org/gameinfo.php?gameid=4996

when i use the CRC=A64BF2BF version on barry's inp I get this

Code:
Recorded using MESS 0.129 [W] (Jan 11
Device Floppy Disk load (BeTiled!.zip) failed: Internal error


-----------------------------------------------------
Exception at EIP=62FB3821: INTEGER DIVIDE BY ZERO
-----------------------------------------------------
EAX=00000001 EBX=00000000 ECX=77C2C2E3 EDX=00000000
ESI=00000000 EDI=00000000 EBP=0023FD28 ESP=0023FCF8


I also can't get this version to load on any other version of mess because it can't load this file . When i use any other version of mess with the CRC=CBA6D578 older version of software loads properly and plays (but does not playback barry's recording) though it works but is like it's a PAL version because the top of the screen is truncated.

The zips you download include both the tape and disk versions, and a text file. Could be that MESS is trying to use the wrong file. To get around it, you can refer to the zip as if it were a folder, and specifically load the dsk file within the zip.

eg: -flop1 /path/BeTiled_cpc_new.zip/betiled_050309.dsk

there is only one file in the zip so it probably isn't that but i tried just incase and gives me an error on the dsk file.

freaky!!!! The zip file tests fine with bare bones unzip, but still mess is unable to load it, but when i unziped the file to a dsk file it works! so i reziped and all is fine. That's kinda scarry if mess can't read a bare bones <8.0 zip file that tests ok.

There are some issues with zipfiles created with 7-zip. It does some non-standard things, apparently, so stick with zip/pkzip/winzip or whatever, use 7-zip only for 7z files.

yep that is the cause, i used 7zip to zip it because i didn't have a right click for winzip at the machine i found this software on, but i figured if unzip extracts it mess should use the same code as unzip does. unzip follows strict zlib32 rules, which is what mess uses right. Eventually i have to figure how mame uses unzip to read compressed inp files, something i've been meaning to do for more than 5 years now? meh.
