Amiga CD32 questions

I'm now a proud owner of CD32 console

I have something to ask:

1. Will the CDTV games work with CD32. Just planning to burn some games to CDs.

2. Can I easily edit WAV-files on those images of games? Of course I can edit the wav-file if the length is exactly the same but could it be possible to change tracks with different size wav-files? Would be nice to play games with own soundtrack!

1. Yes, CDTV games include the cdtv.rmtm file, which puts it into a CDTV compatible mode.

2. Yes, cant see why not aslong as the cue file matches.

Thats because, Another World was not an official CDTV release.
Well I never seen an official released version for CDTV.
Only people using WHDLoad version.

I could knock up a version that will work without using WHDLoad.

Hmmm, is it possible to add new audio tracks to Cd32 game soundtrack? I mean of course there's a program code that allow game to find audio tracks. I know one case that an old PC game played randomly tracks seeking them like 2-16 (the first track is the game track of course). The game had only 7 audio tracks so when a new track was added it was searched also!

As I already said, aslong as the cue file matches, it should work fine.

Woah! All righty then. I must do some experiments

I noticed that some cue files does contain info about audio lenght and some doesn't. My guess is that I can just swap the wav file and rename in my notepad it match the cue file and then add more tracks via copy paste - that' all! The only worry is not to exceed the lenght of 80minutes CD-R.

Well, I haven't tried out yet. let's see...
