  1. How to Decompress Windows Files

    A few days ago two of my program shortcuts (Roblox Player and Roblox Studio) suddenly had the compression sign on the top right corner. I tried to decompress them through properties and then reset my pc, and it seems to have worked, but the icon is still there. The only reason I'm want it decompressed is for visual reasons, so this is quite anoying for me. Another thing I found is that all of my other shortcuts are compressed as well (some of these include discord and dropbox), but the icon doesn't show. If anyone has any advice it would be much appreciated How to Decompress Windows Files :)

  2. Epson ET2500 won't install re Failed to Decompress the Archive

    Hi Karen,

    Since the error message is referring to "Failed to Decompress the Archive", it maybe referring to the winzip file that you have downloaded. That said,
    we suggest that you run the winzip file as administrator and see if it'll make a difference.
    Right-click on the file, and choose Run as Administrator. We also suggest that you provide us a screenshot of the error message and the winzip file that you've downloaded. It's for us to identify as well what could be the next step/s that we
    can do.

    We're looking forward to your response.

  3. Tropico 3 Decompress Config

    The config.lua files in the main directory of Tropico 3 has a bunch of goodie settings that are uneditable due to compression. Using this application, you can see what is in there and change it as you see fit.

    How to Decompress Windows Files decompress_config.png

    Note: The config.lua file does not have to be compressed for Tropico 3 to read it. In fact, you don't even have to decompress it to modify it. Just clear the file out and put whatever commands you need in there, one per line.

    Basic Usage:
    Simply select the config.lua (if it didn't find it for you automatically), click on "Open with Notepad," and modify to your fancy. Save changes in Notepad and close Decompress Config. Start Tropico 3 and the changes should take immediate effect.

    Enable Windowed Mode:
    Spoiler To enable windowed mode:
    1) Download Decompress Config.
    2) Extract Decompress Config somewhere you can find it.
    3) Run Decompress Config.
    4) If the Location isn't showing the full path to config.lua, click the ... button and browse for the location. It will be the same location as Tropico3.exe.
    5) Click on Open with Notepad. Notepad should open up with a bunch of lines starting with config.
    6) Find the line that says config.IsFullscreen = 1 and change that 1 to a 0 (that's zero, not "O").
    7) Change the resolution from inside the game settings.
    Command List:
    Virtually all are untested--use at your own peril. I bolded the commands that are the most useful:
    Spoiler CommandDescriptionconfig.Alignconfig.AssertMessageconfig.AsyncHandlesconfig.AutoOptions config.ColorBits32 is defaultconfig.CrashURLconfig.CursorClippingconfig.DepthBits24 is defaultconfig.Developerconfig.FmodMemory10485760 is defaultconfig.FrequencyUntested.

    Default config.lua (uncompressed):
    Spoiler config.RunUnfocused = 0

    config.WriteToRegistry = 1
    config.AutoOptions = 1
    config.IsFullscreen = 1
    config.ColorBits = 32
    config.DepthBits = 24
    config.VSync = 0
    config.RefRast = 0
    config.MeshVertexBufferChunkSizeKb = 1280
    config.MeshIndexBufferChunkSizeKb = 512
    config.MapSlotReserveSize = 12

    config.SoundListenerMinUpdatePeriod = 50

    config.MaxGameObjectCount = 200000
    config.MaxGameObjectExCount = 10000
    config.MaxGameRenderObjCount = 20000

    config.MainMenu = 1

    How to Decompress Windows Files

    Tropico 3 Decompress Config

    so as far it worked for Imperium Romanum. I think it did because there was only .ini file to decompress and change.

    The other games I mentioned apart from .ini have also .dat files and it seems that if I decompress and change these ones it doesn't work. I don't know how to find other softwares to deal with these two games. *Frown How to Decompress Windows Files :(
