I'm trying to get a bunch of zip files created in OS X (namely Glider PRO's More Houses 1 and 2) over into a SheepShaver OS 9 installation with resource forks fixed back on.

HFVExplorer claims to "detect" AppleDoubles, but it doesn't touch __MACOSX folders, nor detect anything if I slap the doubles next to their original files a la the Wikipedia article. Raw copy for data and resource fork looked interesting, but that just happens to overwrite the file entirely.

Google's led me to a mythical ZIP-JOINER that I can't find a link for, and SheepShaver (or OS 9?) doesn't seem to honor AFS_RESOURCE ADSes when mounting NTFS drives.

It would be nice if there *is* a way of merging the two forks in Windows, but at this point I'm pretty much run raw and I'd like to see if there's anyone out there with OS X that can unzip these files, make sure the AppleDouble folder gets merged back in, and reSIT it for OS9 - it's giving up, yes, but I couldn't care less at this point.

A thanks in advance if it's possible - the last few hours were the antithesis of fun for me.

Hello,
I can do the inflating/stuffing for you.
I have downloaded the files, but cant upload, because my poor upstream is buisy for the next hour or so.
For further file managing, you might consider setting up PearPC, which should handle OSX zip files.
Your files are here in Stuffit5 format:

Hi,

As an addition, have you downloaded the files inside Mac OS 9 and tried MacZip to unzip them in SheepShaver for Windows? There is a version 1.0.6 floating around on the internet: http://download.cnet.com/MacZip/3000-22 ... 25248.html

Best,

The MacOSX zip format will preserve resource forks and such, but only when again unzipped by an appropriate application in OSX.

I downloaded the zip files, unpacked them in MacOSX, transferred both folders to OS9 in SS, and archived them using DropStuff 6.0.1.

Stuffit Expander (version 6 or later needed?) should be able to decode and unstuff them in OS9. Possibly it can be done with HFVExplorer as well.

Thanks a lot for the quick replies - I took a die roll and ended up choosing the last link. Worked perfectly. If I had Calhoun's email I'd get him to host these instead.

@ Cat7 - it does unzip the file, but it doesn't recognize the __MACOSX folder as an AppleDouble source.

Yes, with hindsight that was to be expected. But you got it sorted, that's what counts.

Best,
