Tiring to install a game from torrent


I am using Linux mint 17.2 Rafaela. With bit-torrent client to download the game. But win I unpack the .rar file and put in my password I get up to half bar I get a error that said wrong password. Am I missing something. I looked up how to install a game using a torrent on line and fallowed the instructions but I still get the same error

I'm not sure what the forum rules say about pirated software, but I guess the password you've been asked for is the rar password, not your password.

I assume it is asking for my password because it ask for it on unpacking but I do not know for sure

Which game? Why did you download a password-protected torrent?
I would guess that either you're doing it wrong and you should be installing from the Mint repositories or you're trying to play a pirated game. If it's the latter then you're on your own and, since it's likely to be a Windows game anyhow, you likely don't stand a chance.
