How to Install a Database 2

Share this:

There are two different file formats for databases used in Spooky2 – ZIP and CSV. The ZIP format we use is encrypted, cannot be manually unzipped, and cannot be read by any software but Spooky2. This is to help prevent third-party profiteering on planned future frequency development, and the main database now comes in this format.

Please note once again that this can only be unzipped and read by Spooky2.
CSV files can also be read and loaded as custom databases, and these can be edited and used normally.

  1. This video goes WAY too fast. I cannot see where she is within her computer files to be able to replicate this. The accent is not helping. Can you not get an English speaker to do the videos? We pronounce a ZIP file a “zip” like zipper. I was already lost in the first sentence trying to understand the accent if she was saying C or Z to know which file she was starting with, esp. because only the USA pronounces a Z like zee. But once I figured it by relistening a couple of times, I was immediately lost not knowing where this frequencies file was. This is frustrating. I am also getting Windows stopping me from opening the downloaded updates to the database. That is not addresssed. How do we get around that? Giving up on this video.
