After about 2 months of fixing my computer, it is finally in shape enough to run mugen. I'd like to download it, however the tutorials on Youtube don't really answer my questions about what files or programs i need before installing it. Do I need WinZip or some other program that allows me to run .zip files? What about .rar file? My questions are organized below:
1. Do I need to download a specific program that helps run M.U.G.E.N. efficiently?
2. Do I need to purchase any programs to run .zip and/or .rar files? (Such as WinZip [$30 USD])
3. Are there any other skins for the start up menu that are completed other than EVE and Basic MUGEN?
4. I heard there is a risk to storing .rar and .zip onto your computer, is that true and if so, why?
5. Are there any MUGEN sites that have malicious programming, in other words are there any common mugen websites that have malicious downloads (viruses)?
I would appreciate if I could get some answers, thank you to anyone who comes to my aid by posting.
