ST GameBase uses very old pkuzip.exe (32bit only)

;Original pkunzip.exe (not working on 64bit)

Code: Select all

		
Run_Program(%dbpath%\pkunzip.exe||-d %gamepath%\harddisk.zip %gamepath%\Harddisk||wait)
edit that line to use NEW "7za.exe".
and copy file "7za.exe" to GameBase ST folder.

;7za.exe script (32 or 64bit).

Code: Select all

Run_Program(%dbpath%\7za.exe||x %gamepath%\harddisk.zip -o%gamepath%\Harddisk||wait)

7zip failed to unpach archive

sorry again mad
when I check the games I find 16 missing games for example "Bosse des Maths 3ème, La.zip" definitely for syntax problems.
the zip is present in the games folder but when I try to associate it a "7zip failed to unpach archive" error appears

I solved by removing the accents in the internal name for example é, ç
