BSQ Files

Hello,

I'm totally new here, thanks in advance for any help:

Running an Apple IIGS emulator (GSPplus) on Windows, I have a bunch of applications BSQ Files, when I try to extract the files on ShrinkIt, it says that don't recognize them or displays this message:  Not a nufx, binary acu or sq archive .

Any help will be appreciated!

They're BinSCII files.   Used

They're BinSCII files.   Used in the old days to share files over the usenet, I think.

 

Anyway, look here for the BinSCII program - there are specific instructions to get it to work.

Clarification: BSQ is

Clarification: 

BSQ is actually a BinSCII-ed Shrinkit file. 

 

You will have to un-BinSCII the file and then use Shrinkit to extract the resultant archive fila.
