Base Game will not Unrar

Post by FallenAngel on Sun 29 May - 3:07

Hello, I've downloaded the Sims 3 base game but every time I put it through Utorrent and I try to extract the .rar file it keeps saying that the files cannot extract and the files may be damaged. I've tried this with 2 different programs.

Hello,


Welcome to the forum.


That's not a RAR file, it's an ISO. You have to mount it in a virtual disc drive, the most commonly used is Daemontools. You can use the free version of daemontools LITE.


After you've downloaded and installed that, here's a guide that will tell you how to use it to access the ISO. 


If you have any more questions, feel free to ask!  Smile

Have you tried using WinRAR to open the file ? You can get the 5.21 version here.
