Dumb question. 2001-06-19 09:10:54 Reply

I know this is a really dumb question, but how do I unzip stuff? And how do I prevent zipfiles coming in under Unreal Tournament? Whenever I have a zipfile on my desktop it shows the UT logo and when I click on the file it starts UT and then says it's wrong.

Plz help me.

You need a compression utility such as WinZip. And somehow you've probably changed properties for those types of files.

Are you using a PC? Try this:

Select the file, but don't double click.
Hold down the SHIFT key while RIGHT-CLICKING the file.
Choose the OPEN WITH option.
Choose WINZIP (or your other compression utility).
Check the box that says ALWAYS USE THIS PROGRAM TO OPEN THIS TYPE OF FILE.

Hope that helps.

You don't have to pay to use WinZip, it works just fine without registering it.

Thanks, but I found something called "freezip" when I asked "google". But I still can't put the BBS on my site cuz it needs 2MB sitespace and I only got 1.5MB.

I hate Yahoo.
