Hello Laura,

Try this here:



Select all the contents of the .RAR file (for example, you could right click on an item and choose "select all"). Then you go to the "Extract to..."-button, after which a small window will pop up. In this small window choose the option "Keep broken files" (like in my screenshot), and select "OK". See if that helps.

If not, then I'm not sure what went wrong during your download, but you probably have to download it again.

OK, then. That problem is indeed a very strange one.

There is not much what comes to my mind right now, but (as crazy as it sounds) you might try downloading that game with another computer and another internet connection; maybe you could ask a friend or a relative for that.

It's very likely that either...

1) one of the "peers" in that "Island Paradise" torrent uploads "bad chunks" of data, which can corrupt the download.

2) or something is wrong with your internet connection.

But I will continue thinking about this.Wat.

Can you run the program without extracting it? Occasionally that works when extracting won't.
