There are two options to consider:

* It's possible your copy is corrupt. This is quite possible, particularly given that there's already an alternate entry in the detection.cpp for the German Neon Edition. Additionally, if your version really is compressed, it would be the only version we've heard of that actually did have compression.

* That your version really is compressed. In which case we'd need to figure out what the compression method is.

From memory, the source code we were provided never actually included any compression code; rather just the error message you listed when a compressed file was encountered. So someone would have to reverse engineer the compression used in your version from scratch.

I will first check if my version is corrupt, this version was grabbed by me some years ago. My original CD has to be around somewhere.

It seems the files were corrupt! Please remove this version:

Sorry for the inconvenience.

Thanks,
