Ok, at the moment I'm frazzled and crazy and have an excedrin headache.

I, as in, myself, downloaded as a WIN RAR archive Final Fantasy 7, because i never got to play in my entire nintendo centric childhood.

I played, enjoyed, saved, and went to bed.

Ok, here's the deal:

From the WIN RAR I can open the game up, but not from the savepoint.

From the desktop shortcut I made, I doubleclick, the game stalls, and when my computer reorients itself (I've done it FIVE TIMES) there are ten new P files on my desktop.

So here are my problems.

1) i don't know what a P file is in this context.

2) I don't want to have to download an obscure program to open it unless necessary.

3) I fear I did something wrong, but don't know what.

Does anybody know what to do? If you can solve my problem, I'll give you a Gmail account. If you solve my problem and have a gmail account, I'll give you an e-hug or e-card or my toe or something.

At this point, its not even the game, it would just be the satisfaction f knowing what the hell to do.

There's nothing obscure about RAR files or the programs that uncompress them. Unfortunately I don't think this forum is appropriate for your request.

Points to an illeagle copy. From what I remember, you have to buy this game:

Other Illegal Activities - As you might expect, we don't want anything illegal going on here. Users cannot post hacks, cracks, pirated software, or anything of the like. Furthermore, we do not allow instructions on how to complete illegal activities, such as pirating. Please don't ask for advise on using illegal software, as it will be removed.
I'll close this thread, but if you want, you can PM me about it.
