Using Disc Archives on RPCemu/Arculator hostfs

Post by lucss21a »

So, I have a bunch of disc archives obtained on the official mirror of the Acorn FTP (3.1x, 3.5, and 3.6) as well as from 4corn (3.7). The question is, how do i unzip them on the hostfs properly? I tried extracting it on WinRAR and it was a broken mess. Any help?

You unzip them from inside the emulator, not outside. Use the free self-extracting read only SparkFS. Install it following the instructions here : http://www.riscos.com/ftp_space/generic ... /index.htm
