Thread: can't get out of the batter's box!

  1. #1
    Default can't get out of the batter's box!
    OK - the new iPhone came with my first ever Mac.

    I want to use some of the downloads here but many are XYZ.rar, I can't get WinRAR to run on OSX and I can't find instructions anywhere.

    I know this isn't "directly related" to modding, bit if I can't get past this I can't even open the files to put myself in the position to start asking directly related questions.

    Any input out there?

    there's a program for mac called RaRx or xRaR ... something like that
    I use that.

    u know ... googling "rar os x" would've gone a long way for u
    Best Regards

    thanks pen...

    always used winrar on the pc so I just went there and they had an osx version so i didn't google.

    took it one step further and googled "opening rar files in mac os x"

    looks like zipeg will be my new daddy!

    i find stuffit kinda ... um .. stuffy .. lol ... it feels bloated and cumbersome.
    Although, it does do a lot more!
    I still can't get the early stuffit expanders from Classic outta my mind, or 10.1.5 for that matter.....yuk!
    Best Regards

    I'm sorry, but there should be a clear reason why using Win[B]RAR[B] won't work on your mac...

    I use Stuffit and it is clearly the best tool for expanding compressed archives on OSX.
