Tutorials & FAQs
So, you have find the game you were looking for … but now what to do ? I have covered this tutorial in 3 parts – “Downloading” , “Extraction Issues” & “Troubleshooting”, make sure to read them fully to avoid any hassles
Here are few FAQs which i would like to answer beforehand …
Q. Why only Fileserve ? Why not torrents / other filehosts ??
A. First I would like to answer the torrent part – Public torrents are very unsafe and prone to DMCA complaints. You make not realize it if you living in some parts of the world where piracy isnt a big issue like South East Asia / Offshore countries. However, people living in on-shore countries will agree with me with not starting a torrent site! You make look into the recent case of pirate-bay if you dont understand what I am saying. And my next point is – who will seed ? My net connection alone isn’t enough to seed 5tb worth of games :/
Now on to Fileserve – It is one of the best file sharing sites at the moment which provides good speed and almost no waiting time for free users & unlimited speeds and 0 waiting time for premium members. Have a look here:
I have always believed that sharing should be free thats why i have chosen Fileserve – its excellent for free users, hence the next best thing to torrents
Q. What does Full ISO and Full Rip actually mean??
A. Full ISO: Full ISO is nothing but an image file of an entire CD, DVD or floppy disk. It contains all the files, folders and sector layout/ physical locations of data on that particular disk. It means that u can also burn it into a DVD. Most people prefer Full ISO if their download speed is decent
Full Rip: In full Rip, other languages other than English are removed and some compression is done to make it in a very small size … Full Rips are not to be confused “ripped” versions , in Full Rips nothing is removed ( except the languages of course) so its basically the same as the Full ISO with small size. Usually preferred by ppl who want to conserve hard disk space and ppl with slow download speed …
Q. I can’t save my progress in some of the games. How can I fix that ?
A. All you need to do is make an offline profile. Go here, to see how :
For your convenience I have uploaded every game in 1GB links so you can download without waiting longer via a filehost named Fileserve which is excellent for both free users and premium users alike.
The 1st step which is common to all users is that you MUST install IDM (for premium users) or Jdownloader (for free users). Download it from here :
IDM (If you own a premium account in fileserve / bitshare):
http://safelinking.net/p/c6675880e4 Password: Silent.Hunter
Jdownloader (If you own a free user account in fileserve / bitshare):
I am sure all of you know how to extract xD . The password for all safelinking.net links and rar files is “Silent.Hunter” (without quotes). However , at some point of time you may encounter this error :
Please note that its not a problem of the password or the uploaded files , rather one or more part(s) may be corrupted while downloading. It happens due to many reasons .. best way to avoid is to use IDM.
To fix this, re-download the part(s) which is/are corrupted … like in my above screenshot example, part 2 came out to be corrupted. So, just delete the corrupted part(s) & re-download it.
The best way to avoid any problems while playing the game is to install latest drivers (sound, audio) & a group of supporting softwares.
* Software Essentials *
Make sure u have the following softwares, that will make your job to run the game easier …
1. Update your graphic & audio drivers.
For Nvidia :http://www.nvidia.com/
For ATI :http://support.amd.com/
*For audio search urself according to ur model etc
2. Install the latest DirectX:http://www.softwarepatch.com/windows/directxdownload.html
Note this will cover errors like – d3dx9_xx.dll
3. If u are running WinXP or below, make sure u have (Not required for vista/7) :
Visual C++ Redistributable:http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=A5C84275-3B97-4AB7-A40D-3802B2AF5FC2&displaylang=en
.NET Framework 3.5:http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=333325FD-AE52-4E35-B531-508D977D32A6&displaylang=en
4. Extraction Software:
I would highly recommend 7zip for all extraction purposes. Winrar doesnt work with all extensions and Hj-Split gives no extension sometimes.
5. Mounting Software:
6. Games For Windows Live Redistributable ( search on google for setup )
These are 6 essentials you MUST have in order to run the game properly.
** Finally, if you are getting any sort of error, make sure to use google … 99.9% of your problems will be resolved by it. Each the game has been downloaded and tested by atleast 12k people. So any problem will be at your end and will be solved by doing a quick google search You can put a comment below the game if by chance you are encountering issue, but make sure to place the comment below that game ONLY otherwise it may not get my attention.
