It certainly has better compression by far; it made a HUGE difference when packaging up my armor project. But so many people reported a corrupted esp and the problem went away when I gave out the exact same resources with a rar that I had to draw the only available conclusion.

As for .ace files, I use ALZip to open them. DonnerGott recommended it the last time we had issues with an .ace file and it worked flawlessly. It's also capable of saving at least part of corrupted archives most of the time.

A day may come, when the courage of Morrowind modders fails, when we forsake our uploads and break all bonds of fellowship, but it is not this day! An hour of new games and shattered downloadable files when the age of Morrowind modding comes crashing down! But it is not this day! This day we fight! By all that you hold dear on this good island of Vvardenfell (and the rest of Morrowind to you folks at Tamriel Rebuilt), I bid you, stand, men of the East!

I can take any sort of computer, from the most up-to-date Linux, Mac, or Windows machine all the way back to a DOS box from the '80s, and extract the Archives I make on WinZip tonight.
