Are all non-U8 compressed .app files DOL executables?

    Almost in every wad I have unpacked seemed to have a un-extractable 00000001.app file
    And such files are too large to be stubs.
    I'm just asking if any .app files used encryption methods other than U8 by any means?

    Some are ASH0 compressed (extremely rare)
    It doesn't necessarily mean it's an executable, if you think it might be, plop it into a hex editor and check for "Metrowerks"
