Problems Downloading. [SOLVED]

Post by sw03 on Mon 01 Aug 2011, 05:39

Hello everyone! I'm new to downloading torrents and I was wondering if there was anyone out here that can help me out maybe. I went over to pirate bay and downloaded a file and it came out like this . There's no way to open it or anything. Is there something else that I have to download to help open it?



Thanks for the help!

You just need a bit torrent client.. Once installed, that file (.torrent) will become an icon corresponding to the bit torrent client you have..
uTorrent and Bit Comet are pretty basic, light, and straight forward. Then there are others like Vuze that are loaded with extra features but seem a little heavy on RAM to me.. I like uTorrent, as I'm not into all the extras.. Google will get you to the programs by searching the names.. Oh, all freeware also..

Hello,
I would also recommend utorrent, its a pretty straightforward program.
After you download and install it, you can doubleclick that file and the actual file you're looking for will start downloading.
What you have there is not The Sims 3. Its a torrent file that a program like utorrent will use to connect you to other users who are also downloading that program.
If you run into any problem during your download or afterwards when you install the game, don't hesitate to post!

Follow this step :

1) Drive your browser to http://www.utorrent.com
2) Click Download now.
3) Install the program (Utorrent)
4) After done with the installation, double click on The Sims 3 file.

It'll start to download after that. Good luck, have fun.

Thank you,
