http://www.anak-krakatoa.net/~downl/DC2012/tpt_1.0_01.zip - is corrupt
http://www.anak-krakatoa.net/~downl/DC2012/tpt_1.0_02.zip - the link is broken
sorry, wait till monday i'll see what i can do...
hi, cool, ok
ps - http://www.anak-krakatoa.net/~downl/DC2012/tpt_1.0_21.zip - is also corrupt and cannot completely unpack
the 10, 11, and 20 unpack okay
i just fixed the "1.0_0.2.zip" and checked out the ones that you showed to me as corrupted without noticing any issues after (re)downloading them
The only possible sign to encircle the problem that shines to me could be the that the compilation was made under MacOX (i'm mac-based), perhaps there's something incompatibilities with you unpacker software ?
hi there, thanks, 1.0_0.2 downloaded and unpacked ok.
the zips with the errors are tpt_1.0_20.zip and tpt_1.0_21.zip both of which partially unpack,..
tpt_1.0_20 cannot unpack the contents of one folder - 'A/A others' - giving a 'the system cannot find the specified path' error for each file.
tpt_1.0_21 cannot unpack the contents of four folders - 'A#/A# others, B/B others, C/C others, and C#/C# others' - giving a 'the system cannot find the specified path' error for each file.
I use 'WinRAR' which is prob the best packer on the PC, but i also tried unpacking with 'Universal Extractor' and got similar warnings on the same folders.
hope this helps :) sarah
I'm afraid the only truly reliable solution i can give you would would be to ship it on a DVD to your postal address...
...PM me if interested
The problem with tpt_1.0_20.zip, tpt_1.0_21.zip and tpt_1.0_22.zip are that they contain folders that are called
"A others..." "A# others..." "B others..." etc etc.
When the extracting program (WinRAR, Universal Extractor, whatever) tells the Windows filesystem to create those folders, it will not do that, because..:
On Windows, you can not have a folder name that ends with a "." or a ".." or a "..." or a "...." - etc etc.
Instead of having a folder named "A others..." you get a folder named just "A others"
So when the extracting program tries to extract the files into the "A others..." folder, Windows gives an error, saying that "There is no folder named 'A others...' here" - and the extracting program comes up with "The system cannot find the specified path" error.
To solve this, you have to rename the folder names from "A others..." into "A others" etc. and then create new versions of tpt_1.0_20.zip, tpt_1.0_21.zip and tpt_1.0_22.zip
As a temporary workaround, we who have downloaded these versions with "A others..." etc, can use 7-Zip.
(I used 7-Zip 9.20 - this is the latest stable version).
7-Zip is "smart enough" to understand that since this is a Windows system, it has to rename the "A others..." folders into "A others" and tell the Windows filesystem to create folders with these names instead, and finally extract the contents of the archive into those renamed folders.
When using 7-Zip 9.20, I was able to extract all 9 archives perfectly.
741 AIF files in "Subsaharian Ethnotronics" (TPT_1.0_0x)
115 WAV files in "Marred Waters" (TPT_1.0_1x)
1289 WAV files in "Deep Spaces Light" (TPT_1.0_2x)
Btw, may we expect a 4th "Subsaharian Ethnotronics" (TPT_1.0_03) with 31-50 and 61-70?
And also a 4th "Deep Spaces Light" (TPT_1.0_23) with F#, G and G#?
And - this is just a guess - maybe there also exists a 4th "Marred Waters" (TPT_1.0_13) with K-M and U-Z?
thanks for the info Chris. I opened the zips in WinRAR, removed the ... from the folder names and they all unpacked fine
The "Subsaharian Ethnotronics" are divided into 90 folder, each corresponding on a same "spectrum sequence" itself rendered in the biggest number of octaves as possible, from up to down (spectrum synth room" for metasynth, for the insider)
The "Marred Waters" contains about 140 ambient loops of one minute each divided into 29 folders, each folder corresponding on a samed "image synth" ("image synth room" from metasynth, for the insider again)
the trick was to use different mono-samples of different nature, but following a same sequence or alike (determined by the image)
The "Deep Spaces" as you might figure out by now are divided on 12 folders corresponding on the 12 half-steps. just wait for the one that are lacking i hope to be finished tonight
Thanks for your patience, folks...
