Friend trying to Download with BitTorrent. PDF??
« on: July 07, 2013, 05:47:02 AM »

Hey guys, Im trying to get my friend the alpha and were DLing it via bittorrent. So I told him to right click torrent, open containing folder and unrar to desktop. He tells me when we right clicks the rar file that its A PDF and not actually a rar. Whats going on ? I downloaded the same thing, and I was playing in 5 mins. Anyone got any idea?

PDF about what?

or maybe its just wrong file associations so that PDF reader is linked to open rar files...

I assume its the read me that comes along with it.....Im going to have him try the MP build and/or downloading winrar and opening the file with that.
If the PDF is for some reason told to open .rar files how would one change that?

If it is a Windows 7 workstation then you can change it from example "Default Programs" in Control Panel.

Do or do not, there is no try.
