Strange thing happening when my download finishes. [SOLVED]

Post by Fruityloopz on Wed 05 Sep 2012, 21:26

So I just took 3 1/2 hours to download sims 3 supernatural via utorrent only to go to the folder I downloaded it to and find that its not a zip file at all, it registers it just as simply a file, like it wasn't finished downloading or something. I got a new computer about a month ago and this was happening with the other sims games I had to download as well, causing me to have to restart the download all over again. Does anyone know what's causing this problem? It's a pain in the neck, especially because it says Ill have to wait a whole SIX hours now just to play something that should've downloaded right the first time. Has anyone else been experiencing this?

Hello,

I'm not sure if I understand your problem correctly, but... (Sorry, it's getting late on my side)
Our downloads are all in .rar format, please open them/it using WinRAR, which you can download from www.games4theworld.org or our TPB account.

Actually, I found another thread that explains my problem perfectly, though it was never resolved. If you want to look at it, it's the same problem I'm having. http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t6597-sims-3-torrent-no-zip-file

Edit: Also to answer the question you posted on that thread, it says type of file: File

Hello,

Please right-click on the file and choose "Open with..." then select WinRAR as the default program to open the file with.

Thanks. That seemed to work. I don't know why it would associate the file only sometimes when I downloaded. Just wish I had known this earlier so I wouldn't have spent so much time going back and redownloading crap.

Hello,

That's what we're for, don't worry.
When opened in WinRAR, just read the included "# Installation Guide.txt" on how to install the game.

Also, be sure to check the box in front of the "Use as default program xxxx" on the window that pops up after clicking "Open with..." .

Anyhow, please let us know if you run into any more problems!
