    Ah, wait - he's added that he's got a supercard and you can add files to the patching program as a zip and it'll unzip them and patch them.

    The solution is to unrar them before patching. Or unrar them and zip them.

    emm dude have you actually extracted them? thats kinda important.

    I personally don't like win RAR u might wanna try this>>> 7-Zip

    Everyone should be using the 7z format it's better than RAR or zip.

    This is another nice decompression tool does RAR among others>>>Extractnow

    EDIT:
    If you install 7-Zip just right click on the file and select extract here
    For extractnow double click and hit the extract button
    Then you should have the file thats within the archive ready for whatever patching you need to do

    That I can't help you with. U might wanna try the name of the site you downloaded it from e.g. say you got it from www.gbatemp.net then try gbatemp.net as the pass. The password will have been posted somewhere u just gotta find it [​IMG]
