View Full Version : cant launch amiga roms o amiga emu's, HELP
11 February 2002, 03:18
does anyone have any idea how to launch amiga games on amiga emulators, the games are in .adf format and amiga emulator only supports .rom files

hum, what kind of emulators are you using ? :rolleyes
I suggest you to read the tutorials & faq (http://eab.abime.net/showthread.php?threadid=3239) first.

This is exactly the sort of lamer we don't need around here on EAB and is a good reason why no guests should be able to post I reckon:
1. They login as a guest and post a stupid question which they will be unlikely to come back to.
2. They have proven that they can't read docs and instructions from Amiga emulators.
3. They ignore the tutorials/faqs on EAB and instead post.
4. They don't bother to search the net which has heaps of questions and answers to beginners questions like this.
Message to guest: Go away and learn to read...
(Sorry for the harsh post but how many of these idiots must we put up with!!!)

I think the emulator would be a genuine Amiga emulator, but without a ROM file the ADF files won't be too much good.

Maybe what is happening is that when the Amiga Emulator is asking for the Kickstart.Rom file then that's what this newcommer thinks the name of the disk images are :)
I can understand as I didn't have a clue when I started using WINUAE.
If you need help there is a FULL tutorial for setting up winUae it can be downloaded from:
It's called "A Simple Guide to WinUae" and is very easy to follow so if you are stuck please check it out.

So what? Most newbies ask for Amiga games on ROMs, so therefore this should work :D :p ;)

Although it may seem the most obvious thing in the world to some people here, have you ever considered that ADFs and ROMs and other emulation things can be a bit bewildering to a beginner?
Rather than asking for people here to do all the work for him, I think that ostry needed just a bit of information to clear up the his confusion.
Instead he got some unwelcoming replies in a forum called "Problems (Guest friendly)".
Don't read the messages in this forum if you don't want to!

OK, I concede. I have removed my response.

Well, if he has ever used an amiga, he knows what ROM is. It's a kickstart image and it was that clear when I first double clicked the WinUAE.exe.
The definition of ADF may not be that clear but you are required to insert them under the floppies tab! Now that became clear when I started reading things on the interface in the same session.
And if he has not ever used an amiga, then we should not waste our time at all :rolleyes Retrogaming is about memories not about free games (rOmZ). I understand you find chances to use systems you did have not checked out before through emulation but not reading the documents, not having used an amiga before and laziness to register combined, that's not a valid reason either.
I agree with codetapper's perspective but I would not be that harsh :p

I used an Amiga a couple of times before I tried emulation, though only for gaming.
To me the kickstart was that disk which you used to get an A1200 to look like an A500 so you could play some games which for some strange reason didn't work.

Well, I think the point is that the information is there. It's widely available. If one starts doing emulation of x68000 or Wonderswan, then they may have to do some digging, but even then, the info is there.
I wasn't really raised on the C-64 nor the Atari (8 or 16-bit) computers, but I sussed out how to get up and running with no problems. Even back when Medusa came out for the Amiga, I understood what TOS was with very little investigation. But I at least made an attempt and didn't immediately start posting questions on BBS's.
I just don't know...I really see both sides of the coin (the being nice side and the progressive user side). I will attempt to remain neutral on the issue (at least verbally).
