Installing Lemmings 3?
Hi again :)

I'm trying to install Lemmings 3 - All New World of Lemmings.
So far I followed the instructions to the letter as it asked (which is a bit strange):

"To Install 'All New World Of Lemmings' on your hard drive.

1. Create an L3 directory on your hard drive.

2. Add the following command to your startup file s:user-startup
on your hard drive :-

assign L3: <your HardDisk path>/L3

3. Reboot your Amiga and run InstallHD from the workbench.

4.After Installation is complete, reboot your Amiga again."

Okay, I can do this. I find the Startup file in Workbench and type in the command line:
assign L3: HD1:L3
slightly different than it asked but it wouldn't work otherwise. HD1 is my games partition.

I don't reboot, otherwise it just says "Please insert volume L3 in any drive" again.
It installs, great!, I now have runHD which I click on.

If I do this without booting it asks "please insert volume programs in any drive" programs is the name is disk 1.
next it talks about can't cancel program, can't cancel classic and the other disk names.
After reboot it just asked for L3 five times (the same amount of disks the game has including the saveloadgame.adf, I'm assuming)

Anyone have any idea on how to get around this, I'd love to be able to have this on the hard drive :)

Thanks for listening and looking forward to hearing from you!

You need to edit (add the lines) to the user-startup so that L3: is assigned on startup.

Type> ed s:user-startup from shell/cli

Cool :) found the command panel in the drop down menu and typed
ed s:user-startup
If I type what it asked in, same happens. The game seems to still want to run from the disk because if I have it in it run after telling me five times
"please insert volume L3"

Something interesting though. My Breathless game is already there typed out :D
";BEGIN Breathless
Assign Breathless: "HD1 Games WB3.1:Breathless"
;END Breathless

The game instructions asks for something different though :s
< drive directory/L3 >
Any idea what I need to type?

I installed it to Work:games/L3 and assigned L3: Work:Games/L3.

I think the installer requires you to install to L3 inside another directory.

I would suggest that you re-install the game to HD1:Lemmings/L3 and assign L3: HD1:Lemmings/L3

The key here is the name of your "HD1" - as the HD1 is only an example.

You trick the Amiga into thinking that whenever it is looking for "L3" it will not ask to prompt for the disk but instead look at finding the contents within the said directory.

I think both our solutions are wrong as the game loads from any location, volume name, drive name, sub folder etc...

When Installing I think it's important to assign L3: first before you install, reboot, then install the game.

Thanks for the tip :)
Seems like learning user-startup commands would be quite useful to learn as I now found a few games that require this :s
Why the programmers didn't do this themselves I'll never know because Breathless writes its own.

Thanks again guys for all your help. Hopefully I can get this resolved!

"Good news everyone!"

Well I managed to solve the problem. The guide that comes in the game is rubbish, frankly.
All I had to do was:
make a new folder, go into Shell,
type in [ ed s:user-startup ]
then at the bottom of the new screen added the line:
[ assign L3 "system:games/installed games/Lemmings 3" ] (Lemmings 3 the name of the folder I created)

Now all I need to do is figure out how to get running Alien Breed 3D 2, The Citadel and I'm away!
