When I hit play game from the Start menu, I get the WinRAR menu. Where am I supposed to extract Desert.War.jar and start.jar?? This is a new one...

I did extract both jar files to the main directory, but WinRAR keeps coming up.

Hi Rosseau

Win10 and some other win operating systems at times, often don't seem to recognise the DesertWar.jar as an exe
- It seems that Windows is trying to use winzip/winrar to open and run DesertWar.jar and not Java(TM) Platform SE binary
- Change this and the game should run.
- To change it right click on your Desert War desktop shortcut icon and choose open file location. Find DesertWar.jar, right click on it and change 'Opens with' from Winzip/winrar to Java(TM) Platform SE binary (if its not offered search through 'more apps', it should be there)

Happy Gaming!

The process created a "start.bat" file, which takes me directly to the main menu. That's okay with me. Thanks for the super-fast response!
