here are the contents of the cue file in question: FILE "Civ-II, V2.42a.BIN" BINARY TRACK 01 MODE1/2352 INDEX 01 00:00:00 TRACK 02 AUDIO PREGAP 00:02:00 INDEX 01 42:05:20 TRACK 03 AUDIO INDEX 01 42:48:68 TRACK 04 AUDIO INDEX 01 43:40:12 TRACK 05 AUDIO INDEX 01 45:26:45 TRACK 06 AUDIO INDEX 01 47:38:22 TRACK 07 AUDIO INDEX 01 49:47:65 TRACK 08 AUDIO INDEX 01 52:40:18 TRACK 09 AUDIO INDEX 01 55:25:73 TRACK 10 AUDIO INDEX 01 57:20:32 As you can see its a mode1 so I believe that means it is a CD-ROM file. However when i try to run either of the files a VLC box will pop up and attempt, then fail, to play them. I tried making an .ISO image of both of them (both in the same image) and mount that, however a window opens with the 2 seperate files inside, both with VLC logos, and i may as well not have bothered making an image file and mounting it. I am wondering if the .cue file needs changing or i need some sort of install wizard to 'open this file with' so VLC doesnt keep trying to play them when i ask them to run. When i make an image do both files need to be there or just the .bin or .cue? Which file do i run to initiate an install?
