Tutorial: Downloading and Opening cell lab files.

Post by RedShift » Fri Jan 31, 2020 3:02 am

[I think it would be a good thing to make this a tutorial, since I'm not the only person who experience the same problem when downloading .genome and .substrate files in Dropbox.]


Downloading Cell lab files:
Follow this tutorial if you have experienced a problem on downloading cell lab files or any files from Dropbox. The problem may appears depending on the type of browser you are using.

– Let's use the link of trilobites subtrate by Alast as an example,
https://www.dropbox.com/s/yh2wt2wnsu7dl ... trate?dl=0
[If you are using a browser and clicked that link, the page would turn blank.]

– Go to the URL bar of the browser you are using and,

– Change the "www" to "dl" and add "usercontent" after the dropbox and the new link will look like this:
https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/s/yh2wt2wnsu7dlxg/Trilobites.substrate?dl=0

https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/s/yh2 ... trate?dl=0


– The new link will automatically download the file from Dropbox.

Opening Cell lab files:
After downloading the genome and substrate files, your phone file browser/explorer won't automatically recognize those files, so it can't be opened. You will need another file browser/explorer(like ES File Explorer, ZArchiever, etc...) to open that.
