Question Amiga > ADFs > Transfers >

Hi there guys.

I was wondering if you could answer a few questions for me please.


1. I've got a real urge to play Worms DC. and make some of my own levels in D-Paint.

Just got D-Paint running, but realised that the Worms disks are in ADF.
I beleive that the player created levels are stored on disk 2

However if they are in ADF and ADF's are image files
Q1.1: How would I be able to add my own custom levels to the disks ?


2. I Also Have Amiga Forever Premium edition
with the workbench 3.X disk. And I'm using FS-UAE to emulate my Amiga
on my Linux host machine

I'm wanting to create a full WB install, with HDD so that I can be productive, etc.

The Workbench 3.X disk is essentiually a dir contianing a large No of files

Q2.1. Is there anyway to use them as the original 6 Workbench disks, so that
I can install WB onto a HDD, and use it as an Amiga with a HDD ?

3. I have a real physical Amiga 1200, with an external floppy drive.
(And a few hundred floppy disks).
I've like to buy a cable to connect my Amiga to my Linux PC,
so that I can back up as many of my floppies as possible, As the disks are
getting rather old.

Q.3.1. What is the best way / and cable to achive this please ?


Apologies if some of these questions may seem a little obvious,
I was an Amiga fanatic, back in the 90' when I owned my Amiga computers
but, as I haven't been using an Amiga (real or emulated) for such a long
time, I feel like it the 1st day back at school, and I know nothing.

TIA for any help or advice.

Also if this is the wrong area, please feel free to move this post.

The .ADF images work in the emulator exactly as real floppies in real Amigas. So, if you know how to do the stuff you want on an real Amiga, it works just the same on emulator with ADF's.


Just 'insert the ADF-file' in you emulators 'drive' and there it is, ready to read/write/format/whatever like a normal floppy.

Get Amiga Explorer from https://www.amigaforever.com/ae/ This program will show your Amiga files in your Windows file explorer. You will also need a null modem serial cable (9 pin to 25 pin). If you don't have a serial port, get a usb to serial adapter. Run the Amiga Explorer setup on your PC to copy over the program to the Amiga, and launch Amiga Explorer on the Amiga. Launch Amiga Explorer on your PC, and your file explorer will open, but showing what is on your Amiga. Then, you can browse, delete, and copy files on the Amiga from your PC, back up floppies, etc.
*edit* Oh, you use Linux. I do as well, and this does not work through Wine. Sorry.
