    So after Raven Software released the source code to JK II, I thought I'd check it out. I went to SourceForge and clicked "Download Snapshot" like the author suggests.

    The file downloads as a .tar.gz file, which I open with PeaZip to reveal a .tmp file. I don't understand why this is. I can then change the .tmp extension to .zip and extract its contents, but why is it downloading as a packaged .tmp file? Am I going about it the wrong way?

    I searched a number of different ways on Google to no avail.

    Let's not even get started on SourceForge's forum software. :laugh:

    Thanks.

    EDIT: I totally neglected to add links, but upon visiting the respective SourceForge pages for these releases I found they're no longer available. I'm really not certain why that is. Here are the links anyway:

    Well, I don't know that this thread is particularly relevant anymore. I was able to find out why the source code is no longer there.

    Softpedia

    The source was pulled because it included some proprietary stuff (Bink video, for instance) that would put them in a legal bind.
