Rar files don't work for me :(

I'm new to getting custom stories, and the only ones I can seem to use are zip files.

I have a mac, so I just drag the custom story into the custom story folder, and I'm done. But when I get a .rar file, it doesn't work. So what do I need to do?

Any help would be nice Tongue

But after that, does it just work like it would with a zip file?

Yes and no. No, as in, it won't use Windows Explorer for navigating the contents (assuming you're using Windows).

Alright. But I can still just put the story into my file, and I'm done, right?

Yes. With WinRar you can unpack zip and rar both. Meaning you have access to .rar files and put inside content into your custom stories and play them Smile. You need to unpack .rar obviously Smile.

yes, it is 100 % free Smile

It says trial, but it is actually 100 % free and forever. You just need to see small advertisement every time you open it and you can close it easily what shouldn't be problem at all Smile. At least that's how it is with me Tongue.
