Rune Co-Op Mod Expansion Tips
11:09 AM | Michael Eilers | Comment on this story

IMG has received several forum posts and e-mails about the Rune Co-Op mod, a modification for Rune 1.0.7 that allows cooperative play on the solo levels of the game. It seems a few of you have downloaded this monster-size mod but have been unable to get it to expand, even though it is in .sea (self-expanding archive) format.

After some experimenting, we've found a solution -- the file is a PC .sea file, not a Mac .sea file! If you have the very latest Stuffit Deluxe (full version) installed, the file will open with a simple Expand from the Magic Menu in the Finder, or the Convert submenu. However, if you don't have Stuffit, the file can still be expanded. Just change the extension on the end of the file from .sea to .zip and open it with MacZip or ZipIt. If it still fails to open, change the type and creator of the file to TEXT and ZIP, and try again. If you need any of these tools check CNET's Download.com utilities section (link below).

If you're able to successfully expand and install the mod, be sure and post your comments on this new style of Rune gameplay in our Forum. For those of you on less-than-robust Internet connections, we have a sneaky suspicion that the Rune Co-Op mod will show up (in a Mac-friendly form) on the next MacGames CD issue, so don't commit to that 50 MB download just yet.
