In WinZip there is an option called "User Folder Names", it puts things in the correct hierarchy when it is extracted
The Evaluation version of WinZip 11 lasts for 45 days. All versions previous to 10 are free.
k i got winzip now where do i find the "use folder names option", srry for being a pain, it would be easier if you could contact me on my aim at Sanj N Ganj on AOL IM
When you open the zip file and hit "extract to" there will be four checkboxes, its the last one.
w8 tht just gets you the gamedata files tht you would insert into the directory
Just extract to the STALKER directory, it should create the gamedata folder for you (if the mod author set it up that way). Sometimes you have to extract to the gamedata folder though. It varies from mod to mod, thats why the readme is so important for install instructions
w8 all tht does it just get you the gamedata files tht you insert into the dierectory, i arldy think i can do tht with win rar(or however you call it) so its like just draging the gamedata and droping into the folder? wouldnt it replace all of your other gamedata files and esstially deleting all of the other files?
No, it will only replace the same files. If there are other files there it will ignore them. If you swap mods, you should always delete the old gamedata folder to remove any conflicts
ok im kind of retarded with this stuff, could you give me like step by steps of the things your supposed to do? (srry im being a pain in the @$$ i just hv no clue with this kinda stuff) like give me and example of a mod
