Ok... anyone who can't get the installer to work, make sure that you have 7-zip installed, right click on the installer .exe file, and under 7-Zip click extract files.

Extract them to your BZ2 Root Directory and FS2 should work.

Which really isn't that surprising.

IQ's have really dropped around here just recently, must be something in the water.

Doesn't work. Cannot open installer as archive.

Which means my downloads are consistently corrupt.

You aren't using a download manager or something that might ruin the download are you?

is there some sort of checksum you can do to check if the installer is the issue or whether it's something local to your system that is causing the problem.
