I keep getting this message when trying to submit a score

Post by simpsons99 » Sun Dec 23, 2012 2:41 pm

some kind of error with the zip file - couldn't unzip it
command: './exe/unzip -l bea99_mirax_51520_wolf146'

correct the bad stuff and resubmit, or whinge to Zwaxy

something happen to the site again.. I'm not doing anything different that would cause this to happen.

It seems to unzip okay for me (standard Linux unzip, pretty much the same as the scripts use), did you try it again?

It is also useful to note that using 7-zip to create zip files is a bad idea, as it often uses compression methods that some zip programs (including MAME itself) don't support.

I've tryed it many times.. The Set 2 scores i uploaded it tolk a few different recordings before it submited the score.

I'm doing the samething i've allways done.

I've tryed other games and i'm getting the samething.

Thought it might have something to do with the Leader board being broken. Seems like a fight to submit anything .

I really don'nt know what to do next.

Hmm... sounds like unzip isn't working for some reason... can check if it is at least still there... ok, it is. Strange... Probably need to summon Zwaxy for this one.

EDIT: Uploaded a quick INP, works fine for me, so no idea how you get that sort of error with yours.

Nice to see someone else is having problems with this... I was really starting to get the feeling it was just me.

I was able to slip alot lower score on the board.

There is not different then the other recording that i can tell..


I would hate to get a Millon on DKJR and it not let me Submit my score... Thank goodness this all happened after my 10 millon on Dark Tower!

Don't worry Brian you aren't the only one getting this message, but I'm sure it'll get sorted.

I highly doubt Windows Update would have any bearing on the server deciding to take your recording or not...

I understand your frustration but a lot of people can't upload recordings right now. Not being able to submit a recording at this moment in time is not the end of the world.
