When I install Bane of the Magi, Dfarc gets an error. It seems the file is corrupted. And I want to play it!

Hmmm... I seemed to have the same problem when downloading Chaos and Secret of Amehoela Gold...

Ammehoela!
That sounds wierd. XD

Well, anyone tried unpacking it with both DFArc and DFArc 2? Maybe it's a new DFArc 2 bug...

DFArc has no error checking at all... it'll attempt to extract an invalid .dmod file and tell you that it worked fine.

DFArc2 is a bit more picky, but there might be some unneeded-pickiness. Thanks, I'll look into these D-Mods, along with Mayhem (I noticed the problem there too).

Thanks dudes. The bug has been fixed.

Edit: Oh, if you do experience the "" bug, the D-Mod will still work with no files missing, just you'll end up with a directory titled "" in your Dink Smallwood directory.

For me it created two folders for me, one named and one named Chaos (for example). The Chaos directory failed. Though I haven't tried the directory...

Okay, the bug is fixed, and it'll be working in Release Candidate 5. If the .dmod contained a file with a size of 0 kb, DFArc2 would see the next file as and stop extracting the rest of the files.
