could this be it
this is not me asking  :-)


Hi guys!
I downloaded a software from the net which is a .bin file. I want to install it in my computer but don't know how! My computer does not have the necessary software to open this .bin file. How do I convert it into the original file (.exe)?
Thanks in advance!
Alicia


All help welcome!

.bin and .cue is a CD image format. if you have CD Burner software like Nero you can burn that image directly.
You can extract the content of that image using
Winiso

or
UltraISO

goodluck.

The Machines .bin files are actually a different format than those used as CD images.

If I remember correctly they are a custom compressed format used by the Machines developers, and require a special program to open (which we don't have :| ).
Some of the .bin files in the   \Machines\pdata   and   \Machines\savegame   directories appear to be partially readable using a text editor like WordPad... I'm not sure if changing anything in them would have much of an effect; however, I think it might be possible to edit things such as the text used to describe maps by fiddling with various files in the   \Machines\pdata   folder.

EDIT: Read THIS.

The bin file is just a binary file. I can technically open it with vlc player, but it just acts as a sound file, and really quiet. There is a thread about the models bin file, but I'm not in the mood to link it right now. You need the program that charybdis used, and we don't have it.
