Will work with some games, won't work with many others.

Most games were hardcoded to load from DF0 and as such won't work properly when launched from DF1. I think this was mainly a limitation of custom loaders, but I might wrong.

Rule of thumb is that AmigaDOS-friendly games will run.

You can make a modification to your motherboard to swap DF0 and DF1 in hardware for full compatiblity.

On the A500 this is easy because the CIA chips are socketed.

On the A600/A1200 they are surface mount and it involves cutting two traces on the motherboard and soldering two patches.

There are lots of threads discussing it.
