Any chance of uploading versions without wrapper folders?

Sadly none of these downloads work in Amiberry. I strongly suspect it's because they have an extra layer of folder compared to all my other working LHA installs. Is it possible you could upload versions without the extra wrapper folder?

CURRENT CONTENTS OF LHA:

SkillGrid-WM (folder)
- SkillGrid (folder)
   --- data (folder)
     ----- b-l
     ----- b-r
     ----- (etc)
   --- history.txt 
   --- (etc)
- readme.txt
- readme.txt.info
- SkillGrid.info

DESIRED CONTENTS:

SkillGrid (folder)
   - data (folder)
     --- b-l
     --- b-r
     --- (etc)
   - history.txt 
   - (etc)
readme.txt
readme.txt.info
SkillGrid.info

I can't do it myself because almost nothing supports editing of LHA files. Would be much appreciated, if not no worries.

Sorry, it is not possible because the readme gives instructions precisely regarding the SkillGrid directory (and reflects the CD layout, which includes two directories).

In an AmigaOS environment, all that is needed to install the game is to extract the SkillGrid directory from SkillGrid-WM.lha and put it somewhere. If you don't have AmigaOS, there are tools for Windows and Linux (and most likely also other OSes) for .lha files. In particular, 7-Zip handles .lha files just like .zip files. I don't know how Amiberry works, so I can't give you instructions regarding that.
