    Angry Torrents and Games... confusing to the newcomer.

    my apologies if i am making this post in the wrong place. im in need of help and i figure i could contact the most knoledgeable people on the topic here.


    I downloaded the torrents for games from various torrent sites. after downloading the games, i noticed that a few games have multiple so-called 'zip files', but when i try to open or extract them (winzip and 7zip!) there is always an error message. now i have no clue what to do with the ones that have zip files let alone how to run the games.


    there are a few more games which are in iso, iso archive, and mdf format. i tried mounting the iso's using daemon tools but even that didnt work...


    i did go back to the comments section (on the torrent site) for each game, but there werent any instructions as to how to install/ play them.


    id greatly appreciate any help on the topic, and i think others would benefit from that knowledge aswell as it isnt a particularly easy thing to understand... especially to someone thats new to to torrents

    ok for iso images u need this tool MagicDisc Virtual DVD / CD-ROM Download - Softpedia choose the correct download to ur operting system

    this program will act like u have burned the iso to a disc but u havent what u do is after u have installed this program right click the tray icon (disc n hand) and select virtual cd/dvd rom from the top select the drive and then click mount

    in most download there will be instrustions on haow to install and crack patch

    normally u see the installer in the first folder .exe and then there will be another folder zip or rar with the same .exe this is he crack/patch

    after u install the game u must go to the game dirsectory and copy this patch/crack over the top of the installed .exe

    example u just installed lemmings

    the install directory should be c:\program files then the folder of the company who make the game and then u will see the install and thats what u copy the patch/crack over

    in most cases after installing a game u crack / patch before u run it

    daemon tools will do the same as magic disc just i prefer magic disc and it has a couple extra iso format types that it can handle better

    crackers all tend to recommend daemon tools

    you will need probably winrar to unpack the archives
