I just tried installing the Batman game demo off this month's PCW DVD, but the self extractor said some files are broken, and I need to download a fresh copy. Did anyone find this? Is there a way to fix it?

Copy/paste the file onto your desktop and run it from there.

You will need to get the file by going through the old fashioned methods rather then any retarded front-end put there to confuse the issue.

Right click your cd drive icon and select explore, then follow your nose, there is probably a folder called demo's or games.

If you still have the receipt you could take it back and ask for a replacement :thumbs:.

Yep, mine wasn't working once (cover disc), so I took it back to the shop (I think it was Woolworths of all places) with the receipt and they gave me a replacement :).

Yeah. My extract is failing for the demo as well

"CRC failed in BmGame.u
Unexpected end of archive"

Lovely issue this month. :angry

It's a subscription magazine, so return is not really an option. I might just get a full version.

Got a bit of spare time - and a spare couple of gigs - you can always download it from here (http://www.gpdownloads.co.nz/dl.dyn/Files/4434.html)

Even more reason to request another disk.

My sub will run out at Christmas and I have decided not to renew as I wanted a Computer mag and it now fails to deliver what I want
