the bin and cue files have to be burned onto a cd, as far as i know.

what type of files are on the 3rd cd?

You don't have to burn .bin files. If you download the program Daemon Tools you can run any bin/iso file as if it were a CD in a drive. That way you don't have to waste blank cd-rs.

id suggest alcohol if you can get it for mounting instead of daemon. With my experience more programs recognize daemon and have security against the game running when daemon is installed on a comp. I assume all the files you see our part of a winrar archive. get an unzippiing program like winrar and click on the first one. Open it up and extract the bin and cue files.

try that out, hope it helps =)

I used to pirate extensively, for about 5 years or so, but stopped a little over a year ago.

What you do is get the program WINRAR, and make sure those unkown files get associated with winrar. Then you make sure the file extensions are shown in the directory. They will probably be something like .001, .002, .003, etc. etc. I'm talking about the non-bin and .cue files.

Next, double click the .rar file. If there isn't one, double click the .001 file. Then unrar it into the same directory and make sure all the other files for that disk are there. You will end up with a .bin and .cue file in all likelihood.

Once you have a .bin and .cue for a disk, take a program such as FIREBURNER (i always liked it best) and associated .cue files with it. Then double click the .cue file for a disk, making usre the .bin is in the same directory, and it will open a dialouge within which you can burn the cd.

You can also use a program like Daemon Tools to mount the .bin file as a virtual drive and just play that way without burning.

Hope that helps!  :smile:

somewhere in there should be a .rar
