If your getting the promt, I reckomend you go and download something like winrar first HERE!!!

that should allow you to extract the file wherever then just run the game file, and your pc games should work.

You need to get a Kickstart rom to run any games. Kickstart 1.3 is the one to emulate an Amiga 500. In WinUAE, go to "ROM" and choose the Kickstart file there as "ROM file".

All these questions are answered in the Amiga FAQ. If anything's not clear there, feel free to ask.

right, do i gotta get kick 1.3 seperate, or should it be in winuae by default? in the 'rom' section of winuae, under 'rom file', it has the file 'kick.rom' selected but when i clik on ok or anything it says that there was no kick rom detected. er, i had a look around for kick 1.3 and cant find it on my own. heh, im starting to look silly here, methinks.

No, they don't come with the emulator. If you have an Amiga, you can read out the Kickstart with transrom (a tool included in the emulator package). If you don't own such a machine, you can get Kickstart ROMs legally at http://cloanto.com/amiga/forever/.
