    Default Files to large and cannot open

    I am trying to download this game to my Mac and it says the file is too large to open.

    Any suggestions?

    Never heard of that problem. How big is the file and how much space is left on your hard drive?

    its not that type of issue. It's like it is too big to be opened in text edit?

    what kind of file is it that you downloaded? what extension is it? It is possible that the file you downloaded is corrupt.

    Why would the game need be opened in Text edit? If it's anything that's downloaded, the extension should be a .dmg, .sit or even .img. and should not need to be open with a text editor. Check the file extension and if needed change the extension or try re-downloading the game if all else fails.

    Seems like the file extension is not named properly or your download was corrupt/incomplete. Go through the readme or install file and you'll see directions. I would strongly recommend re-downloading it.
