    Do you open the rar games as other rar files such as movies?

    Well being a rar file, you certainly couldn't do anything with it until you open/extract it ;)

    I know that. You know after u extract a movie rar file in a folder u extract it again so that you can use the bin and cue file. And then after that you mount the image using daemon so that you can see the movie with a regular dvd player. With games do you do the same process of mounting the image?

    Yes. A .RAR file is a .RAR file, the only difference is what they contain (Bin & Cue, ISo, Mpeg2 file etc....)

    What you do after you un rar those files depends on there contents. There is no such thing as a game rar file, you have a rar files that contain a game. AS long as you have all the files you should be ok.

    Good Luck.

    Right thats waht i meant. What im saying after you extract the game to a specified folder waht do you do to open the game? Does folder that i extrated before contain an icon of the game so taht i can open it from there? or do i have to do a process in which i use some kind of program like Daemon to mount the "image" or game into the cd-drive so that i can open it from there.

    If it's a .Exe file (riped game)then you just run it to play,if it,s a Iso,.bin and .cue files you burn it or mount it to a virtual drive.
    I hope this helps
