"Shrinked" compression format?

Okay, I just downloaded the PC version of what originally was an Amiga game, called Baby Jo Going Home. It has several files that have the string "SHRINKED" in their header. Is this a compression format used on Amiga systems? Anyone have more info on this?

Re: Scanbin 6 for 16-bit Windows

Nope, renaming didn't do a thing. Perhaps I should have been clearer from the start: ScanBin is supposed to work on Windows 3.11 but will not install in Windows 3.11. It fails raving about some files being modified, etc.... The installer appears to be a self-extracting 16-bit Windows executable …
