OnEscapee game problem

I have the iso of onEscapee for A1200, I have tried to use it of equal way that a Iso of CD32 using Alcohol 120 virtual unit but does not load the game and I only see the startscreen of kickstart or nothing in the WB.

Anticipated thanks!

This is a Amiga CD game, do you have a preinstalled Amiga OS with cd-rom driver?

I do not have the Amiga OS, I have ClassicWB.Me seems exaggerated to install Amiga OS to only play this one game, is no another possibility if I have ClassicWB already?

Thanks Retro-Nerd for the reply!

Well, ClassicWB is AmigaOS (or you'd rather say that it uses AmigaOS since it's a preinstalled Workbench environment). I'm quite sure thatI've played onEscapee through ClassicWB... Try launching ClassicWB and add the Alcohol virtual drive (or the real CD/DVD-ROM drive if you've burnt the disc) as a harddrive (through a Windows folder, not hard disk image obviously) if it doesn't appear by itself. You should then be able to run the game!

EDIT: Whoops, I just assumed you're using WinUAE. Which you obviously weren't... Ignore me

Yes, this should be the easiest way. Thanks for jumping in to help, fisken uno.

My pleasure Actually, I use this method all the time when CDs won't show up in WinUAE. It never fails. But sometimes you will have to remember to give the fake harddrive the same name as the CD or the game will not work (forgot to point that out). And it will not always work with CD32/CDTV games either since they use a trademark file.

So, yes it does fail sometimes

I never do it this way, but it is OK.

The labelname for the OnEscapee image is, who would have thought it, "onescapee".

I wouldn't be surprised if it would be CDTV_Test, actually But on the other hand the game wouldn't be very picky with the disclabel if that would be the case. So it wouldn't matter if you labeled the fake harddrive "Atari Lovin' Fun" or whatever
