Maybe when Zwaxy wakes up and figures out exactly why unzip is failing?

So the scores should submit once this is fixed?

How is saulonpb getting all his scores through? I'm starting to wonder if it's a Server thing causing this?

I copied the first attachment to the MARP server and successfully unzipped it using the same command as the website script uses:

Code: Select all

(marp) tmp $ mv "Mirax %28set 1%29 score 69%2C420.zip" x.zip
(marp) tmp $ /home/dooglus/web/exe/unzip -l x
Archive:  x.zip
 Length    Date    Time    Name
 ------    ----    ----    ----
 143675  12-23-12  11:11   mirax.inp
 ------                    -------
 143675                    1 file
(marp) tmp $ 
So I don't know what the problem is.

I've modified the script so it should display any errors from the unzip command.

Please try again and paste the results here. Thanks!

Looks like saulonpb just keeps attempting it until it works. Sometimes up to a dozen-odd attempts.

The big question I have is... could it be a version of WinZIP at fault here. Like a new version that has been updated to runs compression slightly differently and older versions [Or other unarchiving programs] can't unzip it properly?

Just my 2 cents
Just a gaming junkie looking for his next High Score fix.

I tryed submiting my last score maybe 20 times in a row... Same Error message over and over again.

Seems like saulonpb is really the only person getting any scores through. I have been lucky to get 2 scores through but those where on the first trys.

Theres something that has happened since i did my Dark Tower Submit.

I know there has been problems with the submit scores will the page not being found after you submit scores But your score would still be added.

I don't understand why this suddenly stopped working, but I've fixed it now.

I was using an old copy of the unzip binary, which wasn't able to unzip files from within the web hosting folder, but was able to if I copied the files to /tmp/ and then tried to unzip them.

I've now switched to using the system /usr/bin/unzip binary, and that seems to be working.

That seems to be working for now .. Thankyou for everything. Hope it stays working .. I'm sure it can be replaced or updated later.

Makes me feel better to not fight to get a score through!

I guess there could have been some change in the file/folder permissions setup after last week's server restore...
