Hello.

As some players has problems downloading and/or installing the game, this guide will tell you how to install the game properly without corrupted files or other such problems.


--First, in order to download the game properly without problems you will need a program to download torrents, there are several programs, one of which is µTorrent Link

Once you have µTorrent installed you can download and install the game.

Step 1; Go to the lmspw website and click the big DOWNLOAD button at the top for x1000 or top-left for 1.5.1 Descent.
