if you have many games & demos installed using whdload patch

-install WDHAutoLaunch very quick (2 files to copy)
-install powerguide/guide in c: (2 files)
1)you must first sort all whdload's games following classical HD TREE/

A/

B/
BO/
C/
Ci/8
...8
D/8
E/
F/
...
W/
Wi/

X-Y
Z/


2) define paths for games and demos in file "WhdAutoLaunch.prefs"

3) open WHDGamesDemosList.guide with powerquide

4) Search a game (on your HD) and click just on his name in the amiga guide
=>if selected game is found on your HD a requeter appear (you can rip it of course) and ASK you to choose between :
- open game's folder in workbench or
- launch game via whdload

in the last case, the better version of the game is automatically choosed according to the priority order defined in WHDAutoLaunch.prefs (by example first aga french, if not found aga english , if not found aga, if not found CD32, ...

If a special version is found next command is launch:
'c:whdload preload slave=goodslaveversion.slave data=goodsubfolderforthisversion'

if no special version found just :
'c:whdload preload slave=MAINGAMEFOLDERNAME.slave'


by example

you can have several versions on the same folder:
SimonTheSorcerer/
|--data-aga-fr/
|--data-aga-de/
|--data-aga-en
|--data-ecs
SimonTheSorcererAGA.slave
SimonTheSorcererECS.slave

or

gamename/
|--data-aga
|--data-ecs
gamenameAGA.slave
gamenameECS.slave

or

gamename/
|--data-pal
|--data-ntsc
gamename.slave
....
of you can choose another sort method but you must then modify priority search list in WHDAutoLaunch.prefs
