"Glow" by The Black Lotus - how to unpack?

https://files.scene.org/view/demos/g...a/tbl-glow.lha

The readme file enclosed says to unpack the two larger files into the same folder, but I have no idea how to do so. I google ".E01" and all I get is a mention of EnCase, some kind of contemporary PC computer forensics file format.

I tried getting the download on Pouet.net replaced with a version that worked, but I was advised to follow the readme file. But how do I unpack? I've tried with LhA and Unzip, no joy.

Use this one, has the .exe and nothing to unpack

In general i use this site more as they have more .exe/files than pouet.

I know about the other versions, but Pouet.net is a user-submitted site and links can be changed by users, if approved. I'm just trying to get this other version submitted. It's the principle of the thing.

Strange, there's nothing to unpack here

The two files contained in the archive are two Amiga exe

I tried to launch those, but nothing happens

Really no idea how to proceed

Exactly, that's what I thought.

The other archive that Amigajay helpfully pointed to is the complete package except for the readme that's in this one. I'm thinking that the archive on Pouet.net is simply a patch for the one that works.

I tried to submit a request to change the download link on Pouet.net but it was denied, saying I should "read the readme". But I did.

Do not eat your brains, the archive posted by you is incomplete missing pieces

Unzip GLOW.LHA archive to a folder and run it TBL-GLOW.EXE

edit: I didn't read your initial post correctly...

The readme says unpack all to the same directory which means unpack all files from the lha to the same directory. Not also unpacking the individual files from the archive. Those are not packed as someone else already mentioned.

I've asked for a link to the prod on Demozoo to be added to the Pouet.net page, and they've agreed. Now there's alternative links to the demo (including the one everyone's pointing me to) so that no-one else has to go looking for it:
https://www.pouet.net/prod.php?which=6975

Janeway's a great way of getting the music modules from demos, but otherwise I don't use it much.
