jo uses winzip9.0 for ziping inps, should we allow this or should we only accept standard zip formats? You pretty much have to purchase winzip9.0 to be able to unzip this file... not a great requriement. Anyways this recording doesn't playback probably because of sound, should this be a special rule?

The recording plays back perfectly for me to the advertised score.

I think any zip submitted must be extractable by the WinXP OS or freeware unzipping programs.

As has been stated several times, submissions here are to share with others.

We shouldn't all have to have a special piece of software when it is entirely not necessary.

If this commercial piece of crap he bought is worth anything it must have the cross-platform compatible zip mode also.

How would you have treated me if using a mac if the zips I submitted could only be reextracted from a mac? I am pretty sure you would have refused them.

I am able to extract the files fine, and I have never paid for winzip. Just use the evaluation version.

7-zip does the job too.

well 7zip is free so i guess it's NOT requiring a commercial program, that's good, but still a little confusing for the users... but what about the playback, i tried a bunch of times still it dies at the begining of stage 4 every time...

Plays back fine for me, so make sure you've removed your memcard files.

No problem here with unzipping.
Congrats for new UN secretary general.
I really would hope North Korea, Pakistan, and frickin Israel would not have nuclear weapons, but that is an entirely different issue...

I ask Jo Sang Il by mail a few days ago to use older version of WinZip if he could. No answer for the moment
