I had some things I had FAR-ed back in the day, but as I may have mentioned before I know for certain at least one of them was glitchy. The glitch is happening again, so I'm probably going to take the game down and reload for the nth time, but first I wanted to ditch that file!

I DLed FAREdit, but in spite of having buttons for same, it seems to neither delete files I ask it to delete from inside the FAR, nor extract anything to other folders. Is there anything better? or is the copy I have just acting up? huh

Try to find "Dragon UnPacker" to download. It extracts far files in seconds!

I use Far Out to extract and to delete inside.

I think Simprograms has it.

I use FarOut as well. And yes, it's at SimPrograms, under FAR Editors.

I use both FarEd and FarOut because both have different quirks.

Farout will let you repack the .far file so the game will read it.

Far Out is very easy to use. I like it.
