Utorrent download just utorrent link, not file

Post by Jeska1995 on Fri 08 Apr 2016, 23:33

Hi, 
I have tried downloading The Sims 4 link, both the normal link and the magnet one, but once in my downloads it only shows as a Utorrent link, not a file. No zipped file, no hidden file, nothing except a link back to the torrent. I've tried downloading it 4 times and it still hasn't work. Can anyone help me?

Hello and welcome to the forum @Jeska1995,


Clicking on the magnet-link and the other link does not download the actual game for you. The actual download needs to be done with a bittorrent-client, such as "uTorrent". You can download our guide here, if you are unfamiliar with torrenting.

It should give you an insight into the subject matter. Good luck, and feel free to post back if there are more questions beyond that. Smile

No problem at all. Smile  Once you understood how it works, I suggest you download and install "WinRAR 5.21" from this site here too:
https://games4theworld.org/downloads


Installation instructions are included. You will need the program to unpack the file. 

After you downloaded the game(s) you like, create an empty folder, and then double-click on the downloaded .RAR file. It should open in WinRAR. Drag and drop all contents of the .RAR into the empty folder you just created. Then start the installation from said folder. Good luck again. Very Happy
