    I'm trying to figure out how to get Basilisk II to recognize (and or decompress) sit files?


    I don't know how to get those files decompressed and then what to do with them once they are.

    I tried looking it up in the B2help manual, but couldn't find anything on this process.

    Again, I'm using a winxp pc with Basilisk II

    Thanks in advance!

    You need Stuffit 5.5 to decompress files in basilisk 2.

    Hey MonksMac.

    Thanks for the reply.

    I was told to get aladin expander 5.0.for windows. Well I got it and tried it out and some of the files ran with no problem.

    The main one that I wanted to run crashed. It's a game called Uninvited and I got the startup screen before it crashing with an error 10.

    My question is this: If some games made it through the decompression, is it still an issue with 5.0 vs 5.5?

    Or is it quite possible that 5.0 for windows messed something up SPECIFICALLY with trying to Decompress Uninvited, and 5.5 for windows will/should/could solve the problem?

    Thanks in advance.
