I can't open my compiled pdx.zip file in the Playdate Simulator

I'm having trouble opening the compiled pdx.zip file I'm making in my Playdate Simulator. Is there a way I can fix this?

I'm not sure if that's a typo, but a pdx shouldn't be a zip file. On Windows, it's basically just a folder that ends with ".pdx". If that's not the issue, I would make sure your antivirus isn't interfering with the Playdate compiler (pdc) or the simulator.

Thank you. But another question: how do I download a pdc?

If you downloaded the pdx.zip, you'll need to unzip it and then run the resulting .pdx in the simulator.

pdc is the Playdate compiler and is installed alongside the Simulator. You'd use it to build your own .pdx
