here you can dowload final mdb (the end of 2021) with all screenshots. In the archive you find a text with the 3 sites where i used to make MS-DOS Goldies.

Dear Seya, I have a little tried but it's really a little beyond my possibilities. Now I understand the great work you put in every release. You have all my esteem, congratulations, you're a big one. If anyone manages to fill out a release with the last MDB and want to share it ...... I offer them pizza and beer. Ok? :D :D

I'm having problems unpacking the last archive Seiya, using 7zip it unarchives file less size than the archive and winzip fails to find header.

Something still not right here Seiya, I re-downloaded update 18 which starts out as 21gb, then I use 7zip to unarchive the contained tar archive of 33.5gb then I unarchive the files and folder from that which are only 13.7gb??

How big are the final files/folders supposed to be?

I went ahead and dropped in the new files from the resulting 13.7gb archive from update 18 and I'm getting :-
96 games not found
59 pictures not found
18 extras not found

I'm using 7zip to unarchive update 18 and like I posted previously there is a disparity with the archive size and resulting files, any help?

update 18 i compressed in tgz and the best program to decompress every archive is Bandzip (i used that to compress).
however:

1) decompress tgz in 33 GB tar archive
2) decompress tar archive

Thanks Seiya, it seems that 7zip wasn't up to the job so used Bandizip which you suggested and works great.

I'm still missing 60 games, 59 screenshots and 17 extras.

A few of the games that I'm missing :-

t\The Adventures of Willy Beamish (EGA Version).zip 11372 Adventures of Willy Beamish (EGA), The
a\Alge-Blaster 3 (1994)\Alge-Bla\cd\dosbox.exe 11343 Alge-blaster 3 (CD)
a\LASTDEGG\dosbox.exe 11342 Awesome Adventures of Victor Vector and Yondo - The Last Dinosaur Egg (CD)
b\MattelMultimedia-BarbieFashionDesigner-Win31Mac\dosbox.exe 11386 Barbie Fashion Designer (CD)
b\BRBMFT\dosbox.exe 11385 Barbie Magic Fairy Tales - Barbie as Rapunzel (CD)
c\castle Dr. Brain 1 (EGA Version).zip 11368 Castle of Dr. Brain (EGA)

e\Exile III - Ruined World (1996)\ExileIII\dosbox.exe 11348 Exile III - Ruined World (CD)

I'm trying to work out if I'm missing an update but don't know which update these games relate to, any ideas?
