In this article we will review the procedure to manually download and install a game (recommended for experienced users or
people who do not want to use our
Games downloaded on our service are made up by 2 types of files:
- One executable file ".exe" (also called as "setup" file)
- One or more ".bin" files. These files cannot be read individually but are necessary to install the game. You can see how many .bin files compose your game by looking at your confirmation email:
You could find the download files in your confirmation email and in the "My Games" tab of your account.
For a quicker and safer download, we recommend to do as follows:
1 – If you do not already have a download manager installed on your machine may we suggest the freeware, Free Download Manager, install it with the default options: http://dl.metaboli.com/dl/freedownloadmanager.exe.
2 – Create a folder with the name of your game on your desktop or somewhere with enough disk space. To create a folder, right-click anywhere on your desktop with your mouse, select "New" > "Folder" and then name the folder "Download Files" or anything you want.
3 – Launch Free Download Manager and click on the “+” button in the top left. Copy the link of the File 1 below and paste it in the URL box in the ‘add download’ window that opened.
4 – In the “Save to Folder” box choose the folder that you created in step 2. Click on OK to start the download, once the download has finished repeat steps 3 and 4 for all the files to download etc...
5 – After you have completed the downloads, please make sure that the file names have not been changed, especially if you have made several download attempts of the same file. For example, if there is a bracket with numbers at the end of the file like (2), erase the number and the brackets. The download files on your hard drive must have the same name and extension (either .exe, .bin. .zip. or .rar) then proposed as default in the "save as"-window.
6 – After you have downloaded and saved all the files, you navigate to the download folder and double-click on the the .exe file to begin the installation. Do not try to extract the .bin or .zip or .rar files yourself.
