so i installed 7zip and everything, but when i right click on the .pbo and .bisign files nothing about 7zip shows up. So i thought maybe it would automatically use it when i extract it, but that did not work either. I'm starting to get a little ticked off at this lol. Can anybody help me?

Added 15 minutes later:

it keeps saying it can't open the archive of the file

Why on earth are you trying to open .pbo files with 7z? That for sure wont work :-)
7z is an archiver like rar or winzip and is used to make packages smaller (packing) when you want to store or share them for example.

the pbo files should be left untouched unless you want to start editing the game.

Do never add custom content to the default addons folder. We have installation instructions on 99% on all our downloadpages:

Installation:
As we always recommend use modfolders to seperate the custom content from the official game content to prevent problems. For different ways to set up your modfolders and use them please visit our FAQ.

When you are using the Steam version you can find a Steam mod installation and activation FAQ here.

Read the FAQ and make sure your using an equal system.
It should not matter wether you use winrar or 7z, they can both work with any of the files we host. Make sure to grab the latest version if you are experiencing troubles.

You are not allowed to open BAF/PMC files!
