On an unrelated note; All the WHDLoads seem to work fine for me except for Jaguar XJ220. I'm getting a "DOS Error #205 (object not found) on reading 'Disk.1'" but the file is there, everything looks fine.

Code:
JaguarXJ220Image.info
JaguarXJ220Image.slave
Manual
Manual.info
ReadMe
ReadMe.info
data
data/Disk.1
data/Disk.2
data/disk.3
Disk 3 appears to have different casing but that's now the one throwing the error.

Can't reproduce that error.
Perhaps something went wrong extracting the archive ?

Tried several times with no luck. Do these MD5 sums match for anyone else? (using JaguarXJ220_v1.5_Image_1200.lha).

Code:

Send a message via MSN to dlfrsilver
Enverex, the easiest way is to install the game as real files with the latest installer.

Hi Retroplay,

I always use RomVault to keep up with the excellent WHDLoad collection. One of the things I always do after obtaining the .dat file manually is the following instruction:

Code:
Look for the following line in the header of the dat file:
<clrmamepro/>

Change this to:
<clrmamepro forcepacking="unzip"/>
This way all .lha files will be stored as .lha instead of also zipping them. Would you consider using this method too as default in the .dat files or am I missing an important 'feature' then that could cause some bad side-effects elsewhere?

Hi, Retroplay!
I've tried downloading some games from your ftp using Filezilla but it says there are more than one connections from my IP address. Is there any way around this or should I just download from the Mega upload link I found. I'm just afraid that those files are not the newest. Thanks in advance!

Heya apekop123,

Welcome to EAB

Your issue is to do with using a "generic" account to access files on the EAB File Server; see the 1st post for more details.

...but also, even with a proper account (in which you need 50 posts on EAB in order to register), you cannot browse / download at the same time.

I always update EAB FTP and MEGA folder simultaneously.
Just pick your poison.

I was having troubles playing Future Wars. First it was ok but loading it the second time it would get stuck just showing a white mouse pointer on a black background. I was then told on the Retropie forum that FutureWars_v4.3-B_1570 was corrupt and I should use an older version called FutureWars_v4.0_1570. The newer version only had Spanish and Italian added. I tested it and the older version does work. Maybe you can consider removing the 4.3 version in favour of 4.0. Thanks again!

There's nothing wrong with 4.3-B on real hardware or WinUAE.
I've just tested it in WinUAE 4.1.0 & ClassicWB (WHDLoad 18.4), it started right up 10 times in a row.
Did you extract the lha the proper way in Workbench to a proper Amiga filesystem ?
Do you quit the game using WHDLoad quit key or do just close emulation ?

I used the lha file directly from the ftp with no unpacking. It was with Amiberry on a Raspberry Pi. There is also a reference to the problem on this site: http://mantis.whdload.de/view.php?id=3306
I closed the emulation with the quit key in the Amiberry menu.

Future Wars also works fine for me. I think the problem is the WHDLoader program they are using in the Amiberry emulator. From what i've read it's written in AMOS ! They are also blaming a couple of other games for being bogus because they don't load using their booter, I think Jaguar XJ220 was one (which also works fine). I think their booter needs updating rather than blaming the WHDLoad installs and trying to get them changed, IMO.

...not to mention that Amiberry still has trouble running certain games even from floppy e.g: Skidmarks

Tbh honest, I'm not too keen on those "select a zip/lha/lzx whatever click 'n play" launchers.
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.
