A .rar file is just another archive format. Since it's proprietary, you'll need a third-party program to deal with it. Winrar is the one actually designed for it, and has a thirty day free trial that never actually bothers to make you buy the program. 7Zip is an open-source option that can unpack but not create .rar archives, but has a bit less hassle involved. There are others, but those are the common ones used on Windows that I know of.

In the future please use this wonderful tool called http://google.com since giving it the search parameter ".rar file" tells you just about everything you need to know pretty much immediately, and saves others a lot of trouble.

I won't dispute this, but I do wish to point out that it's an inadequate summary. Even the size point can be called into question on some occasions.

Dat Viymese, please try asking Google instead of the forums for questions such as this. It saves us time, you get your answer faster in many cases, and the answer might be better than what we can provide. Also, it saves you some dignity.

Also, we'd just be googling the question anyway to give you a proper source.

Because Msnpaint.exe won't work on its own and the BSM won't open them correctly what am i doing wrong?

paint photoshop or gimp all work fine. Just save them as .png when your done. Try to keep to a consistant naming scheme too. What is bsm?

No, but the name is SM. Ship Maker. You could lengthen it to Battleships Forever Ship Maker (BFSM) But it's not called Battleship maker. If you check on the shortcuts in your launch menu, it should show it as BF ship maker. So no, we have no idea what BSM is.
