That''s not source code.

Where did you get it?

Looks like a zip file. Do you have WinZip installed? Are you trying to open with Netscape (you shouldn''t).

/me thinks the AP is correct, i recognise the "PK" signature, plus you can see an "ARENA.dsp" in there.

thus, you shall have to d/load winzip to view and extract the files you want.

DELL. hmmph. stay away from name brand companies. stay, far, far away.... build your own, you will save yourself a lot of headaches.

Well, I don''t have a mac so I don''t know for sure...

but if you do a quick search on google for ''using maczip'', it looks like it turns up how to do just that.

Use maczip to extract the files inside the archive. You might have to download the archive again. If the file opened up inside your web browser and you saved it from there, you''ll have to download it again since it will now be text instead of binary.

Once you''ve successfully unpacked the archive, open the source code with an ide (integrated development environment) and have at it. Try compiling it and see what kinds of errors the compiler spits out. These are called "compile time" errors. Try fixing them, then compile again. Hopefully you''ll eventually get the sources to compile without errors.

Then you''ll have to try running the resulting program. Any errors manifesting here are called "runtime" errors - also known as "bugs".

From here you''re on your own.

no offense, but maybe you should learn the basics of using your computer before you try and modify SOURCE CODE!

I know this is the for begginners forum, but this is just ridiculous

Seeing the coding style of some people, I think the word ''bug'' can definitely also be applied to source code, wether it compiles or not...
