I'll check how i can add some games to the menu
I'll try to make a dual boot with your menu for CD32 games & TinyLauncher for the other Whdload Games & demos. It will be perfect

Thanks!
Cheers mate

Adding games to the menu is easy, either:

- Have a WHDLoad slave with the same name as the containing folder, or.
- Have a script called runme in the folder.

Adding a second menu would be fairly easy too.

- Create a fake "game" in game folder called something like "TinyLauncher", and have a runme file that changes to the correct directory and opens the app.

Since the first volume is basically full, my recommendation would be to put additional games and such on the second volume.

I've tried to add a dual boot on my existing system and it seems to be fine excepts the iso games.
To debug, i've done this :
With same Winuae config, if i boot from your image, all is working well.
But if i copy all the files from your image in a folder with Dopus and then make this folder a drive in WinUAE and boot from it, all is working excepts iso games. Just after the skick, it seems to loop to yellow screen and reset. I don't understand what is causing this

Hmmm :/ I'm not entirely sure myself, I haven't seen the yellow screen before.

I don't suppose you could film it somehow...?


A slight aside, I'm slowly working through my 'second phase', where I've been focusing on quality over quantity (lowest rated game by Lemon Amiga score is 6, so I've culled a few poor CD32 titles, and the Lemon Amiga average is about 7.6), as well as making sure various games will be playable with joypad alone (even if keyboard is needed for a handful of functions, such as level passwords). I'm up to around 170 games on that version, I'll release when I'm at about 200.

I've re-download & re-extracted the files and all seems ok. I don't know from where this yellow screen was appearing because i don't have any error when extracting or copying.

EDIT: The Problem could be that i use a 32GB Gb SD card with 2nd and 3rd partitions >4Gb, and games are in the 2nd partition, so perhaps a patched rom with an updated scsi.device could resolve this

A question : is you skick trick able to run any iso file on a CD32 (without CD tracks of course )?
I wonder if i can run all those fantastic CD32 compilations from HD with your menu.

I'll give it a try

Some of them may work and some of them may not - give them a try you could try copying the Beneath a Steel Sky folder and making the adjustments to the 'tempboot' file. (Or otherwise, it might just work if you overwrite bass.iso)

If you've actually burned the discs, you may be able to run them from "Load CD" on the menu (though if you've burned them, then there's no reason why you can't boot them normally I suppose)

I've found that on Microcosm, if i press the RED button on title screen, the intro doesn't start and get stuck on the CD image. If i press the GREEN button instead, intro launch in the "fullscreen mode" and then i can play . I've found that if you have a real nvram save for microcosm, then if you launch Microcosm the first time, it works, but when you launch it a second time after playing a bit (when it as written a save in folder NV_Saves on HD ) it's stuck on CD image, even if i press the RED or GREEN button.
I think this game is the hardest from all the CD32 library to be run from HDD

Yeah.. I've actually dropped Microcosm (as well as all games with a below 6 score on Lemon Amiga) from the next build. It's not really worth it, both in difficulty running it and in terms of space that it uses up on the image.

Where can we download this alone so we can make our own game setups?
And does this read games off a file or does it generate the list in real time? The second might be too slow.

Sorry for the delay.

I haven't yet made a standalone version (though it's possible to download the one that's there and delete all of the games )

It doesn't use file lists. It just looks at the folder structure (so, if you've got a folder called "games\shadow of the beast", it'll recognise shadow of the beast as a game). It then either expects "shadow of the beast.slave" in that folder to boot it as a WHDLoad game, or a "runme" script file if it needs to run outside of whdload (or with special customs etc).

I've found that the game list should be fully populated (20 games or more i think )
If you use the menu with less games, game names are duplicated (rolling list), and then doesn't launch
BTW, who wants to use it with less than 20 games ?
I've discovered this when tryng to fix Microcosm and i have deleted all other games folder to test

Chaos Engine....I just get a black screen running that with my TF330, doesn't like the fast ram I think, tried disk and whdload, perhaps the latest (or just newer than what I have) slave fixes it, will have to work out how to update it

This collection looks good, will pick up another card as I only use my CD32 for games really. Actually, it needs Xtreme Racing as that is my most played game lol, I think DamineD or perhaps you did the ~22 meg "ultimate" collection? Was playing that last night
