ChunkSpy:1127: mismatch in number size (needs 8 but read 4)

It means Lua_Number is probably an int or a float. By default, ChunkSpy dies when the chunk header does not match that of the host platform. However, look at the help options. Read the README file too. The '--auto' option might work; ChunkSpy can decode different Lua_Number types (but that has not been extensively tested.)

Do note that ChunkSpy works only for standard 5.0.2 at the moment (I am testing a 5.1 update) so if the format used in the files you want to decode is non-standard, you will need to modify ChunkSpy itself, i.e. you are on your own. If you are not familiar with how binary chunks are put together, try reading: ANoFrillsIntroToLua5VMInstructions.pdf
