I downloaded the topspin pc version(i hope). It comes in a archvied WinRAR. There are six files....a serial number text...a file called cky-tpsp1.bin...a file called cky-tpsp2.bin....a file called cky-tpsp1.cue...a file called cky-tpsp2.cue..and one called cky-tpsp.nfo

Did i even download the correct file? Is this even topspin as in the tennis game? If so...how do I install the darn thing?

The .bin files contain an image of the CD of the game. The .cue files contain the TOC for the CD, they have the information necessary to distinguish between data and audio channels. You can either decide to write these files to cd (you read the .cue file and the corresponding .bin file with all the CD data is consequently written to the CD, getting the necessary TOC information from the .cue file), or you can mount them to a virtual drive by using a tool such as Daemon Tools. This saves you from the trouble of writing a CD.

Who said anything about piracy? Just helping a fellow TW member to run his home-made copy of a game that he bought! ;)

BTW. TopSpin is lots of fun!

Open one file and it extract the files inside. It will then unpack all parts of these files from each winrar file.

newbie, can you post the link for Top spin? And also, can you play against people online? or is it just against the computer?
