No games work


I'm running Win10 64bit and have installed the most up to date WinUAE, I've got valid Roms but when I try and load ANY game I just get the purple boot/insert disc animation screen. I've tried quite a few adf files and none of them work. There is no error message and I've tried loading the adf files from different file locations in case WinUAE struggles with particular places. I've followed several 'how to' guides and none work. I don't see what I'm doing wrong.

Any suggestions?

Where are you getting the ADF files from? USe the ones from Gamebase.
Also, old games will run better with Kickstart oler than 2.x. Use 1.3 just to be safe.

If you receive it purple boot/insert disc animation screen The problems can be?

- Floppy no bootable
- Floppy two, three, etc... you have to start with disk 1
- You can tell the names of the game files you are using

purple boot/insert disc animation screen
do you mean this:


if yes, then do what akira said, with kickstart 1.3.

Or you may have the case, where workbench should be loaded first.

Mark, please try and not start a thread with that sort of heading, the issue is no games seem to work for you, when in fact the games do work, it suggests there's an issue with the emulator which isn't the case.

Its just that subject names like that spread a bit of fear..

As said that screen we think you refer to is the standard boot screen that you get when either a disk isn't inserted or it needs workbench loaded first to run the game. As said previously check where you games are coming from as duff adf's are out there and there are plenty of good sites that have disks. Also as suggested its always a good start to use disks from Gamebase Amiga which is a very large and wonderful colection of games, manuals, cheats and all sorts of info and games in a single package Pretty much every thing from the old days is in it and the disks have been checked as closely as possible to be the best versions.

You might need to look for a torrent of this as its pretty big but a wonderful gaming resource where the screen shots and in game screens often jog a few memories.

Good luck, any help, just ask.
