I seems to have run into a problem with a bunch of Renpy games. When I try to run them I get errors in the loader.py about zlib.

The latest Parental Love:
ParentalLove-version1.1-pc/renpy/loader.py", line 131, in read_index
index = loads(zlib.decompress(infile.read()))
error: Error -3 while decompressing data: incorrect header check

Streets Rats:
File "renpy/loader.py", line 133, in read_index
index = loads(zlib.decompress(infile.read()))
error: Error -5 while decompressing data: incomplete or truncated stream

The Guardian 1.0:
TheGuardian-1.0.0-pc/renpy/loader.py", line 136, in index_archives
index = loads(f.read().decode("zlib"))
File "/home/tom/ab/x64lucid-deps/install/lib/python2.7/encodings/zlib_codec.py", line 43, in zlib_decode
error: Error -3 while decompressing data: incorrect header check

I don't know where that home/tom comes from but still seems like the same error.
I have tried everything and don't know what else to do. These are supposed to be stand alone. I have tried them on different computers and different OS's and still get the same errors.

Has anybody else seen this?

I have played each of those at some point and never had that issue on any game let alone those three. Is it only those games or others as well?

Are you running a compressed version of those games?

Telling us about which of these links you used would help us to know what might be the problem. To see if others might be running into these issues as well.

You are unzipping (extracting from the zip file) for each of these games before running the executable, yes?

There are other games as well but some games play just fine. For instance I am playing Radian an The Island and they work just fine.

That is correct, I unzip them and let that finish before I try to run the game. The unzipping happens without error.

The game works fine on my end. It might be your unzip thing that's causing this. I've never heard of this before which is pretty wild. So I think something interfered with your unzip which is related to decompressing. Try a different method and see if it works.

You said you;ve tried on different OS's, what did you use to unzip on those? Or are you trying to run all of them thru python command or shell script?
