ma is the same format as mb, but in ascii. It's readable (end editable) by
a simple texteditor. Of course, it does not contains bitmap-shaders, only
the references to the bitmap-files.
I don't know the real difference, but often mb files are smaller, but not
as small as they would be if they would be packed e.g. by zip.
A crash with ma *could* be possible if the file was open and saved with
different character encodings or on different platforms (CR+LF/CR
differences between Win and Unix).
