Question Long filenames filemanager

Ok heres the problem:

Id like to keep my installed WHDload games up to date so i thought it would be the best to copy all of KGs installed whdload games as zip files over to my amiga via network.

Copying went fine, but i cant see the whole filename in DirOpus 5.5, so i cant extract them.

Im using the latest SFS, so the files have the full names, but DirOpus and any other filemanager i tried wont display all characters.

Any advice which filemanager displays full filenames and supports extracting zip files?

I've had this problem myself....I think the filenames exceed the Amiga's limit (30?), what you could do is rename them so they're shorter and put .lzx/.zip (whatever type archive it is) on the end so you can extract them in DOpus.

EDIT: Didn't read post properly, you're using SFS... but maybe it's worth a go anyway until you can find a "proper" solution?

dopus 4.16 ' aminet version support long filenames
also diskmaster 2 on aminet

but dopus 5 support long filenames as well...you must config it because by default only read 30....go to enviroment/directories and set there to read long filenames

Thanks for the replies.

Looks like my Dopus 5.5 doesnt have the option to read long filenames.

Diskmaster 2 seems to support long filenames, but id love to use diropus.
If i only could find the damn option... Is there any update i missed?

lastet version is 5.82 but Im sure that the first version of dopus 5 support long files

check on options....generally named "environment"...look for a option named "maximum file lenght" and set it to 107 cause is the maximum supported by SFS

Yeah I'm a big fan of DOpus 4, that's why I've never seen this problem unpacking the archives

ClassicWB ftw!

@Bippy: Nope it isnt there.

@KG: I think i will give Opus4 a go. First thing i recognised is that it doesnt support drag and drop like Opus5.

What a shame that Opus5 cant do things Opus4 can do. Im using it for years but never came across that problem.

Dopus5 latest version support long filenames. But sometimes it too does not read them. I had to open another one or two listers and resfresh the contents and close the previous listers to fix that problem. (on my real amiga)

Strange, I am using Dopus 5.82 for years already and I never had a bug with long filenames. And bippy, Dopus v5.xx > Dopus 4. (actually, I use both of them, Magellan as WB replacement and Opus4 sometimes for small tasks (i.e. mostly when I don't want to boot into WB.)

Now that's interesting, what can you do in Dopus4 that Dopus5.xx can't?

Displaying long filenames in Dopus 5.5.

I really like my Dopus 5.5 config and im using it for years. I dont want to go back to Opus4 for just the long filename reason. Is there any way to update 5.5 to the latest 5.82 version?

no.....check diferences betewen both listers

and for example check the file there:

Air Supply - Making Love Out of Nothing At All.mp3

it contain 49 characters.....but for optical illusion you can estimate aprox 30
