Azureus: bittorrent

Yaaaaaaaa I have my own computer now so no more filter yaaaa for me

Ok now for the question.

I have downloaded Driv3r for Azureus and now i don't know what to do? How do i play the game? I'm thinking that i need a CD Image but how do i do it? can i just us a free image software from the Internet or do i have to buy something better like Alcohol 120%? So pretty much i don't really know what im suppose to do once i download a file.

Congrats on the computer

So is the game downloaded or the torrent?...You should just be able to open it without any programs like Alcohol 120% or Daemon tools...just install it

It's not supposed to be 3GB, the game in stores was on a regular disk, no DVD so could't be the right one, or possibly you're downloading a package of several games, should be closer to 100MB

BTW you'll need WinRar for this...I'll PM you with a link

Did you download it yet?...It might not be necessary, but from every game I've downloaded so far, I've needed it, and it's not just for games...

WinRar is just a program for compressing files so they take up less space. When you install it, and the game is downloaded, the icon should look like this:



Right click on the file, and go to Extract Files, and select the place that you want the game to go. Then find the install file in the new folder where you put the game, and follow the instructions

And to add to this info winrar is just like winzip only a better version and congrats on the new computer.

Have you downloaded the actual file using Azureus?! And yes new PC games do come in bundles of around 3GB as this includes the additional CD images needed to install the game. If you have Nero or Alcohol 120% you are OK to go.
