I will, now. I actually thought it was an ingenious idea to zip them up in the first place. I mean, I access single demos in archive HDDs, but this was the first time I tried many in one go.

Issue with large archive HDD causes WinUAE to lock itself and Windows up

I have recently taken many single-file demos and zipped them up and used them as archived hard drives in WinUAE rather than ordinary folders with files, and I find that performance degrades fairly...

Exactly, CRT raster displays can move and stretch and squash around the CRT screen very easily. I'm sure that most of them (especially Amiga monitors) had controls to move the X & Y and likewise...

Did you leave the best 'til last? I always loved the death sequence in Beast 2, with that guitar riff and the excellent subtle atmospheric shading in the background of the pic. Gold! :)

The "real thing" is NOT an option for me, as I simply don't have the money or room for even one Amiga machine, whereas on WinUAE I can "use" any Amiga I like. Also, it seems that these days owners of...

7-Zip works fine with me for LHA files. The only issue would be the filenames, as AlexH said, but I just go ahead and rename them anyway. :)

Fair enough. :)

So if I drag and drop an ADF file into Workbench and DF0:NDOS comes up, I leave it as it is, but anything else, rip it?

I don't know. But I do know that .rar files don't work properly as mounted archive drives in WinUAE, so I guess WinRAR will be used just for drag'n'drop.
