Can anyone remember the name of this disk or the company/coverdisk etc.. who made it???
What your friend had was most likely a utility booter that disabled fast memory leaving an A500 with only it's built-in 512k of Chip RAM enabled, unfortunately this will not have the same effect on an A500+ due to differences in the amount of on-board RAM and the location of trapdoor memory in the Amiga's address space.

For the vast majority of titles, yes it will, but some very old games will refuse to work on a A500+ no matter what you do due to poor programming practices.
