That the current in_zip.dll (v0.5.6.9a) release
has troubles with the HVSC (high volatege SID collection) rar archive
has nothing to do with (in)correct rar specifications.
Your unrar.dll was/is surely compiled with stuff (libs, sources, etc...) directly from rarsoft / http://www.winrar-rog.com/,
is not it?
Well, WinRar.exe itself has no troubles to load the zip/rar release of the HVSC.
So I tried to re-archive / convert the RAR archive
(which was build with a Linux packer [-->Rar file info])
and loaded this re-archived RAR file to Winamp.
However, I still get the same error inside the playlist:
"<< HVSC 43-all-of-them >> (Contains 0 valid files)".
So anything is wrong with your plug-in or with the unrar.dll.
[u]This question could maybe help:[/b]
What is the highest number of entries inside a rar file that in_zip.dll is able to handle?
The current HVSC contains 30803 files.
"that file seems to play ok so far on the quick"
DrO, please read previous posts more accurate.
I wrote that playing MIDI files from a rar archive is no problem.
But after a MIDI track ends and a new one begins,
then the MIDI volume in Window's Volume Controll will be set to zero.
I never saw this kind of "feature" (I mean: "bug"
I really hope that you will find the bug and solve it.
