    So I recently downloaded a backup of Smarty Pants by the Dagger group for ntsc U, but I'm a bit confused when I open the folder. I usually unrar the archives within the folder after downloading a backup, but for Smarty Pants there are no archives. Instead, it's a bunch of files that end in .001 .002 .003 .004 etc all the way up to .089. There is also a .sfv file too. Basically, what do I do with these files in order to obtain the final ISO that I burn?

    I'm familiar with extracting archives, but these are just plain files. There is nothing to extract.

    No, they really are archives.

    Do these files require some other program to unrar them if they are archives? Because I have winrar, which lets me unrar the archives of other games, where as these Smarty Pants file don't even have the option "extract files" when I right click any of them.

    Just click "Open With" and use WinRAR [​IMG]

    I think we can post links to just pictures on the forum. Please tell me if we're not allowed to so I can remove the link.

    So that is what it looks like when I make an attempt to unrar the Smarty Pants files (left side). On the right side is a Guitar Hero III backup, where the contents within the folder are clearly archives. I selected multiple files to unrar for both games, but they don't seem to work the same way. I don't even have the option "Open With" for the Smarty Pants files. For the Guitar Hero III files, I just select the archives and extract files. I hope the picture helps to clearify my question and situation. This is the second time I've downloaded the Smarty Pants backup, so I'm beginning to get frustrated with it. Thanks so far for the replies btw.

    Edit: Nvm link doesn't work... anyone know how host a pic so I can show you guys?

    Edit 2: New link

    Open up winrar from the start menu, then in winrar click file -> open. Browse to where the files are kept and if you don't see them listed, down at the bottom of the open file window select the file type to be all or "*.*" Then select the 001 file and it should open the archive then.

    The person that made the archive just changed the file extensions, but they're still an archive.

    Everything went well until I got the last step. After selecting the 001 file (or any other), a message saying "The archive is either unknown format or damaged." I kind of feel that it's just an unknown format, and that I need another program to recognize the files.

    Everything seems to be working so far with this program. Had the files joined and it's all in one iso now. All I need to do is burn and see if it works. Thanks a lot for the help!
