The only way to make sure a game is running as intended is to either run it from Workbench or a selfbooting hdf with file attributes intact.
Totally agree my friend

it's quite funny how these "launcher" solutions for crap 20$ hardware always trigger fast and tell its a bug in a recent whdload or whatever


they never come to the idea their outdated/incomplete emulators are the main problem.
kinda the same with MAME they rely to their a decade old MAME version because the current developement is so buggy and slow

They should have implemented WHDLoad functions like Madmab did in WinUAEX for XBOX.

DH0: A master HDF with all needed files (Kickstarts, SetPatch, WHDLoad etc) which points to DH1 with game
DH1: HDF with installed game

No Amiga native files exposed to foreign filesystems: Profit.

Yet another borked game replaced with proper installed ipf image (Thanks DrBong).

Kwasimodo_v1.2_2957.
AmigaBASIC gaming at its finest.

That's the second I've replaced so far.
Rogue Trooper was the first.

A small FYI regarding Labyrinth_v1.0.1_DetNyeCOMputer_Dk english translation.
You must set english and custom question tool types manually to avoid missing file error.
If you use WHDLoad splash screen selector it sets wrong values.

Hey there! I hope this is the right thread for my question.
I finally got a personal EAB FTP account (yeah), which works fine. I wanted to download this WHDLoad package with the installer found in the ftp server. The program is started correctly and the ini file is created, but I cannot login with my personal account ("login incorrect"). It works with the general ftp account, but not with my personal one.
I assume this could be a problem with my password? I have some special characters in it, which is accepted by FileZilla e.g.
I could PM someone (Retroplay?) which characters I have in my PW which I think may break it.
I hope there is a solution.

Thanks a lot in advance!

You'll have to ask Turran about login issues.
