thanks for the site. and i found a game in the newsgroup, it has 7 par files and 36 normal rar files, and if all the files are there should i download the par files too?

if all the files are there, you do not need to download the par files. par files are there to make life easier for those who miss a few files cos then the author doesn't have to repost the file again.

in all my time using newsgroups, i've only downloaded par files once since i was missing 2 files from a game. i got all my games off that group.

keep in mind that people post new games every day so eventually, you'll get everything you ever wanted. you just have to be patient.

that's the magic of par files! it will work if everything unrared sucessfully.

what i love about par files is that if you download a game that has 21 fles and you're missing 2 (lets say file 9 and file 14), all you have to do is download 2 par files and the .par and like magic, those 2 files will be replaced with a working files. i have no idea how it does that, but it works!

you can also use smart par to check all your files to make sure they're working.
