Seems that you want to run that game by mounting his directory as hard drive, but that don't work because that game is a whdload install of the real game, and in order to run it you need a valid workbench installation(either in hardfile or directory), and whdload installed. You can install amigasys for a good looking workbench in winuae, of course you will need workbench disks to install it.

The best WB to use is ClassicWB, as it doesn't abuse you host computer (memory/CPU) and has tons of very neat application. (plus support from KG's WHDLoad packs )

I don't know the commands for amiga shell to change to the driectory the game is in. I have never used an Amiga so I don't have a clue how it works.

If you've never used an Amiga, checking out the FAQ may be a good idea.

Or investing in a book from eBay/Amazon marketplace perhaps? One of the "Mastering..." or "Insider Guide" series from Bruce Smith Books would be just the ticket.

Mastering Amiga Assembler? :halo


No for real.... uhm... the FAQ linked in a couple of posts up, should be a good guide. I've never used WHDLoad myself, but I assume it requires a working WB installation, plus the actual WHDLoad program installed. Then it should be a matter of clicking the "installpatch" you will see iunder Workbench and the harddrive window there
