How to open the Chadnet Wiki archive


What is a .tar archive and why we use it

A .tar file (called a tarball) is a file which contains files and/or folders. Like a .zip but uncompressed. We use .tar instead of .zip, because it's faster to create.

How do I browse the archive?

Once you've downloaded and extracted the tarball, open the index.html file, then you can click around like normal. :D

How to extract .tar on Windows

How to extract .tar on MacOS or Linux

Extract the tarball:

If the file is not found, recheck where you downloaded the tarball and navigate to the appropriate folder.
