for quick dms -> adf i use xdms (v1.3) but it's not always reliable, you have to watch the output especial if you batch convert...

Maybe dms2adf can help. Never tried it.

Edit: I tried it with Mean Streets dms. The game works fine as an adf.

Cool thanks, I also grabbed bippym's "rename dms2adf.zip" script

Has anyone ever used ADFOpus1_2.exe before though? This looks very easy to use being an application with GUI. Guess I'm now really trying to find out how safe / reliable it is...

Hmmm, I don't have that much experience with DirOpus for the Amiga... Sure I can work it out though

... and it can work both ways hey i.e. ADF --> DMS and DMS --> ADF?

if I wrote the script yes..

What the script does is undms to rad and then convert the rad image to ADF

It's simple and works well

I think i used this before. Isn't it like a script that starts winuae to do the convert job?

It's a simple dos commandline-based tool to convert the image.

dms2adf input.dms output.adf

Just checked, what i thought of is unDMS. It's a cmd-line tool (bat file) that will start uae and boot a mini workbench with tools like dms etc and then convert a dms to adf this way without user interaction. Very slow compared to xdms but 100% compatible.
