I downloaded a game in an Winrar format in it there ar 3 folders cd1,cd2,cd3 in each folder there are wierd files with name vbg-vmb1.r30 and there another pair of winrar files that in thme have a 700 mb ram mdf file,and there are no game launcher or anything only those files so what can I do?
Extract the rar archives (you know how to do that right? install winrar, then just right click on of the files and choose extract to ). Then just burn the mdf files. mdf files are cd images like iso or bin (though which format I can’t remember). You’d have to use a cd burning program that supports mdf.
The files go blah.r01, blah.r02, blah.r03, etc. but it’s really one archive that’s been split into parts. Clicking anyone of the parts to extract should do the trick. Winrar will automatically seek the other parts (you’d get an error message if you were missing any part).
If you have other filenames (a different set of diff.r01 diff.r02 etc) then there’s obviously other archives in the directory. They’d have to be extracted separately (but as before, you only need open one per set)
My tip: Don’t download games in .RAR. It’s slow to extract and it normally doesn’t work. I normally download .ISO files and use Isobuster to extract and decode them. Alchohol 120% should recognize and just burn it straight.
rar files aren’t that slow to extract if you have a powerful enough processor (pentium 2 or above). the benefit of rar is it stores information about file integrity. if you download a file in its original format and it were corrupted (even by one bit), you wouldn’t know it. if you rar it before sending, it compresses it (more or less) and any error during transmission would be detected on the receiving end.
what you’re saying is true, but I also use .ISO files because Alcohol 120% recognizes and burns them without the need to extract them. If i’m not sure if the game works or not, I use CD-RW’s NOT CD-R’s! IF it doesn’t work and you burned it on a CD-RW, you ust erase it and write another game. If you use a CD-R and it doesn’t work, you’re outta luck! You gotta toss the CD and use a new one (which is a really bad waste).

Ok, so i opened the rar files, and i used “DEAMON TOOLS” to mount an run the game, so a window with the game logo pops out, and it gives me the option to install...I, tears of joy running down my cheeks, click it, and then...NOTHING HAPPENS!, after I decided not to kill myself, i tried again and nothing...what should I do?
I have enter a game and there are some winrar i open it and i se some big file i click on it i think you need to wait 1 hour to open what will i do i open deamon tools and i search and cant find it only winrar i click open and nothing..........the game is prototype
