I got a little problem :P I found this site earlier today, so I downloaded a game called Flight of the Amazon queen.

Well, it was only 2 files to the game. One Readme.txt and one queen.1c
What shall I do with the queen.1c? It is around 50 Mb.
I've set up the DosBox and everything... but I just don't know how to do with that file :P

Thanks
Razor

Lol. There's a good one. I just downloaded it again and you must be downloading something else because I get all the files.

Queen1c is for this game.
You must download ScummVM and run the game with it.

I am not making fun or anything, just wondering,what exactly was the thought process regarding the readme file when you didn't know what to do with the game file.

Was it like this?
"Damn, how does this game work? And why do they include this stupid readme file instead of some simple instructions!"
or
"NOOBS!!! How am I supposed to know how to play this game with this stupid extension?"
or something else?

I have found 3 possibilities for the .C1 file on a web search.

The first one would be Povwin Pov-ray for Windows v3.1 Scenes Advanced Newltpot File, which I have no idea whatsoever it would mean.

Second option would be that it's a spyware. If it's the case then be very cautious about that file.

Third option would indicate that a graphic program can generate .c1 files.

All in all, this is in no way related to games or archives, and you should really ask yourself if the site you downloaded this from was "safe".

The most obvious option remain the one Platformer mentioned:

To the others: now stop spamming.

This is a very strange situation. According to Abandonia, the game should be 7 mb or so. Also, the official download site's largest version is 35 mb. 50 mb is also a bit large for spyware so I don't know what's going on here... Anyway, I think you downloaded the wrong version.

It's .1c - not .c1

Yeah, I think that's what I downloaded. But it was a .rar file, and after i extracted it, then it was the queen.1c file on 50mb
