Problems with DMS

category: general [glöplog]
Upon trying to upload productions from Batman Group, I'm confronted with DMS files that don't seem to work anywere: UAE automatic unDMS feature, nor DMS 2.00 (copied from some old tooldisk) nor DMS 2.33 (from my miggy at the side). SO, ¿any of you have got another DMS version?

are they the divided-in-half DMS files? i.e. two ~450k DMS files instead of one ~900k file. I can see UAE choking on those, but I have a DMS2ADF app for DOS that converts them right.

In fact, you might want to google for DMS2ADF and see if it works.

winden: upload one so we can test and see what comes out.

Header crc problem... (at least for xdms.)

It does seem to be perhaps a half of the file...

no, hmm, the problem is the file SHOULD be
-rw-r--r-- 1 truck users 428625 May 5 2004 BATMAN_GROUP-KillingJoke.dms

that size. Proper location of file, which will uncompress:
lftp ftp.amigascne.org:/pub> cd amiga/Groups/B/Batman_Group/
cd ok, cwd=/pub/amiga/Groups/B/Batman_Group
lftp ftp.amigascne.org:/pub/amiga/Groups/B/Batman_Group> ls
-rw-r--r-- 1 0 0 623510 May 04 2004 BATMANVUELVE_1.DMS
-rw-r--r-- 1 0 0 355750 May 04 2004 BATMANVUELVE_2.DMS
-rw-r--r-- 1 0 0 428625 May 04 2004 BATMAN_GROUP-KillingJoke.dms
-rw-r--r-- 1 0 0 96080 May 04 2004 BATMAN_GROUP-Ventana
-rw-r--r-- 1 0 0 688615 May 04 2004 BATMAN_GROUP-Voyager.dms

Plus some others (:

Left as an excercise for you to gain gloppage.
