Broken .mod files
« on: November 17, 2020, 19:32:18 »

Downloaded the torrent and did some parsing, and I've found some broken .mod files on the site:

This .mod file is also broken (has extra junk data at the beginning):


However, it should just be deleted, because there's already a fixed version on the site:

Yeah, I'm aware of those, but generally they won't be deleted until a suitable replacement is found. The one that already has a known replacement has now been merged.

I was curious, so I looked at this one. It's actually a noisepacker 3 file :)
original : http://janeway.exotica.org.uk/release.php?id=44004

And found this one. The version, here, is completely destroyed. Size-wise, it seems to be the following file. It also fits the title.
