Because those two text files are updated regularly

So the ones i own are changed, not the same inside the 7z on the file server

No problem

Notes.txt contains notes about the collection, like demos with corrupted graphics or sound for example

Scanned.txt contains the name of folders from my Amiga collection which i analyzed for building ADA

So, as you can guess, nothing important for the use of the archive

So you go to the trouble / extra effort to create / update these text files... but yet you cannot keep a text file on additions / changes with each new upload

Who cares? As long as you have all the main files

It's just a .DAT file...

Crashdisk shouldn't have included those text files really...

If it really bothers you then open the .DAT file with say Notepad++, remove the lines related to the text files and save

He will have included them because the dat will have made a note of every file in Chips ADA folder when creating the dat, none of this would be necessary if Chip would just release bloody updates!
I might just do that DD and remove the 2 txt files from dat ;-)

I don't know if you use Filezilla, but you should read this :

Basically,text files are transformed when exchanging between Windows and Unix (carriage return). The FTP client must be set to handle text files as binary files.

I thinked a lot about this decision

If you read the thread you will notice that i get critics/polemics each time i do a release

The reason is the lack of updates

I will not change my mind about this, i don't like ADA structured like TOSEC

Since i am sure negative feedbacks will not going to finish, i am forced to not announce no more the releases

This means no more announcements about a new version of the collection

But at the same time this DOESN'T mean the project is dead

Indeed at the moment project is still active and it will be updated regularly (till i will not be tired of the project itself)

So this post is directed to ALL the people who are still interested in the archive

Please just check the date of the 7zip file on my upload folder on the ftp to see if a new version is out

I am sorry, but i am really tired to get the same polemics again and again, this is the only way

Thanks for attention, chip

@chip
I don't know if you know it but it is possible to identify a demo file with its CRC32 on the Kestra site :
(Unknown)-AccessXBbs.exe => CRC32 $26771E00

Not everything is on this site, but it could help you improve your pack...
