Hi, all. i've downloaded some of the packages on novatec site.

see
{mod: indeed, files are broken or something. Find them somewhere else, no (questionable) warez links please}

They are saved as .arj, but when opening those, my pc tell me that are corrupted-
Some one was able to extract or see the content of one of the files?

These are old .arc and .arj format files.
Also, they could be opened only with arc, lha, zip, etc. utilties for MSX under MSX-DOS.

maybe 7zip or rar can also unpack them?

Made many experiments, many years ago, I don't remember now.
I'm sure I have extracted successfully all that stuff, I've got all the "unzippers" (you can find some of them in Brazilian Adrian page).
Maybe LHA-PMA could open MSX's lha or arc.

It's not an archiver problem.
.COM files hang on MSX too
If someone have a mirror he's welcome LOL!

Did somebody found a solution for this? I also have those archive files, but even with xarj of novatec it self they can't be unpacked. Found unarj for msx, but same. They all hang or tell it's a bad header Sad

The last working mirror I could find on archive.org is https://web.archive.org/web/20050226015958/http://www.getban... But that one also has the arj files that can't be extracted :(
