OK. I've downloaded a zipped file. I can display it by clicking on then "Downloads" icon on the task bar.

Now what is the next step? I have to unarc using voodoo-x? If so, where does the extracted file go to? I want to download any file and execute it. I can download any file I choose to and I can see it in Downloads but I'm at a loss as to what to do next. I've looked on the internet for a manual that has in depth info in it to no avail. Geez, this can't be that hard but I'm making it. This is easy for me on the PC side...not on the WinUAE side!

Also, I have a 3.5" diskette drive connected to my PC via a USB port. How do I make WinUAE see it and can then use it like I would on my Windows PC side?

Zeke1312, like I wrote in my other post, please take a look at the tutorial videos. There's everything you need to know.

Basically, drag the zipped file and drop it onto eg. "Ram" icon placed on desktop. The archive gets unpacked there automatically. Alternatively you can press and hold right mouse button over the zipped file and select eg. "Extract to RAM:" or "Extract here!" or "Open with MUIUnArc" etc.

The ADF files are images of floppy disks. You can mount them in AmiKit environment by doubleclicking them. Usually, the games are stored in ADF format. However most of the games were designed to run without operating system in background. Therefore, more compatible way to run them will be to use these images with clean WinUAE without AmiKit. Start WinUAE, select A500 or A1200 configuration and in "Floppy drives" section of WinUAE settings specify the path to the ADF file. Then the WinUAE will boot this floppy disk and run the content. For more information please check the following websites:

Also, I have a 3.5" diskette drive connected to my PC via a USB port. How do I make WinUAE see it and can then use it like I would on my Windows PC side?

I have no experience in this area. Better contact the author of WinUAE or ask at eg. www.amigaworld.net

No problem zeke1312. Personally I use KLCodec package for all audio&video formats on Windows side. It contains many many codecs and plugins together with a small and efficient player called Media Classic or something like that. You can find more information at http://www.codecpackguide.com/klcodec.htm

Direct download link: http://codecpack.nl/klcodec353f.exe

Sorry for the incorrect spelling of "previous" and "player" and the "have gave". Wow, I'm gettin' old and miss my spell checker! I'm a two finger keyboard guy....
