Recommended Posts

i meant there were two files on "my documents, one called "el_000_880"and one about the update. and absolutely nothing happens when i double click it. it puts the hourglass for when something is loading on for about half a second then it goes back to the regular pointer. i am trying it on my other computer as we speak. it asked what i wanted to access it from and i put "internet explorer" is that okay?

You need a video card to use your computer in the first place.

Anyway, the zip file is an archive, you need to extract the files first, with a program such as Unzip (do a search on google for it), then click on el.exe

Zip is the shorthand used to describe the process of compressing and uncompressing files. The files you downloaded are zipped (compressed) and not usable until you unzip (uncompress) them. See www.winzip.com.

1) go to http://www.winzip.com and download the full trail version of winzip (it is a trail [30 days] version, but you might use it as long as you wish)

2) Install winzip.. simply hit the next button like 4 times.

3) Now the zip archives you downloaded should open automatically by winzip when you doubleclick. If they dont, you will have to make some changes in your windows settings - tell me if thats the case.

4) Rightclick-Drag the fullgame-zipfile to a location on your compuster (my documents/desktop) and release the button. You will see some connamnds showing in a menu, choose [extract to el_000_880] or something like that. This will create a new folder including all the files from the zip archive. If you have downloaded the full version, 880, then there is no need for updating the game, yet.

5) update the game by rightclick-draging the update zip file to the directory where you have unziped the full game. The choose [extract to here]..
