LZX Files.

After reading through the FAQs I can't find the answer I'm looking for...

Basically I've got an LZX file of a game, and I have no idea how to make it play. When I open it from the HD-Games section, a list of filenames associated with the game appear. I also have options like 'extract all' and 'load archive' and 'add files' and I have no idea what to do.

Please bear in mind that I'm not a computer wizz, so any explanation too technical will go over my head.

Many thanks...

Choose Extract all to extract the files somewhere. You should then find the main game loading file in there.

LZX is basically Amiga's version of ZIP files, both a way of compressing multiple files into one file.

Guess he wants to know HOW to extract them Just do a search for UNLZX in Aminet ( http://de.aminet.net )

Then use that extractor the same way as LHA
