What is a .par file and why is it important?




A .par file is a type of file that contains information about the game's parameters, such as graphics settings, sound settings, and game options. It is located in the game's installation folder and is essential for the game to run properly. If the .par file is corrupted, missing, or invalid, the game will not be able to read it and will display the error message.
