I want to download sooo many of them, including Deadpool, would someone mind explaining how to? Like what downloads I'd need to be able to get them to work. Keeps saying I need Java but... Please someone help me, I'd ask my cousin, but she never gets the time to explain it. Thank you

You can find them on DA. You click the Download link and then when it's downloaded you open the file in the WinRAR program.
Uhh then it should be in your files where Downloads go.

That's strange. You use WinRAR? Other than that, I don't know. :( Sorry. That's usually all I have to do to use it.

It helps me with a lot of things I download.
Try installing it and then open the Shimeji download into WinRAR.

Basically what Collide is referring to is a program that helps essentially "unzip" a file.

What is going on is the necessary files you are trying to access are all placed within a folder that has been "zipped" up (aka compressed in computer terms) so that all the installation files, or whatever it may be, can be kept within one location and put on the internet as a downloadable file. To access those files you literally have to unzip the file, and to do this, it may take a special program.

WinRAR, WinZIP, and other programs like this are open source, free programs that you can download to access files that have been compressed. Try searching on Google for any one of these programs, download (ensure its a safe download source like that of CNET) and install the program to your computer. Then go back to the "Shimeji" that you are trying to access, download it, and use WinRAR, WinZIP or whichever program to unzip the files.

Hope that helps.
