Thanks. I'll check those links out now.

However most WHDLOAD games require more power than their floppy counterparts.
So WHDLOAD allows non-HD games (floppy only games) to boot from a HDD. So if the CDTV does not have a HDD I'd need to try and run them from a CD.

What do you mean by requiring more "power" than their floppy counterparts, do you mean CPU or RAM or both?

Thanks

If you've not got any games you could get a couple from http://eab.abime.net/showthread.php?t=43633

That Tiny Launcher by gibs would the be perfect answer, providing it was editable to add games to the list. Shame it isn't available for download or purchase. Its got to be worth that guy finishing that and selling it. I'd pay a decent sum for it.
