    A RAR is a compressed archive, like a zip file. Get 7-Zip and extract it.

    Just extract the .zip/.rar file, open the folder then highlight all "zipped" folders and extract, and presto! There's your rom. [​IMG]

    I don't understand why they put the files inside other files, it just makes it more complicated for people like me who aren't huge nerds. And why call them archives? It just makes them sound boring, and I've never read any archives anyway so why would I want my games in them?

    Files in these archives are compressed, meaning they are of a smaller size and therefore require a shorter time to download. Also, putting many files into just one archive file simplifies the downloading/uploading process.

    I mean c'mon. Would you prefer to download 10 individual files of 5MB each or one file of 50MB?

    @mods, why was this pointless?
    I was trying to answer to vague rant.
    And my explanation was that they use rar files with more rar files so it's harder for "beginners" to download roms.

    Who says guy's can't multitask? I might even go so far as to call it three-way, there's some self-deprecation in there, too.

    "Yarr, make them walk the plank!"

    "Okay"

    "Grrr, stick it over the side first!"

    *Splash*

    "How do they walk the plank when it's in the water?"

    "....."
