Ability to read Rar5 with Recovery Record

Issue #23 new
Anonymous created an issue

The current SevenZipSharp component used in RomCenter doesn't seem to support Rar5 with Recovery Record by saying that I've corrupted files (and it tried to read it as .tar instead).

I haven't tried using this SevenZipSharp's fork with rar5+recovery record, but maybe it can read it?

I understand that Rar5+Recovery record is totally a niche among collectors, so I guess this is a very minor issue :)

    I'd like to add that romcenter does not lack support for rar5 + recovery record, but it lacks support for anything rar5 at all. Which is a shame. Rar5 is a pretty good compression format, it compresses almost as good as 7z, but the decompression time is way lower. I'd love to see rar5 support added to romcenter. At the moment I have to either check roms before archiving or use other tools to check the roms.

    I believe writing rar archives costs money (licenses), but I'd be more than happy if romcenter could at least read rar files, verify the included roms and show a list of missing ones (plus maybe ones that need to be renamed) :)
