Autostart a game with WinUAE?

After some help from here
http://eab.abime.net/showthread.php?t=58347
I now have saved a configuration that runs Pool of Radiance fine.

However it´s a bit tedious always to start WinUAE for which I have created a link on my desktop, then load the configuration that works with that game and then to start.

Is it possible and if so how, to get Pool of Radiance to run with WinUAE with that specific configuration just clicking on a link?

Choose a quickstart that you know works with the game, "insert" the 1st gamedisk in df0:, untick start with GUI in misc tab and save as new config, then in windows send that file (.uae) to the desktop as a shortcut

Load config, disable 'Show GUI on startup' on the misc panel, save config. Next time you (double-)click on the config, the game starts right away.

I tried that and saved the config in the same folder as the adf files.
Then I created a shortcut on the desktop for the config-file.

The game starts fine, and when I try to load a savegame it offers me all saved games ( A to E ) as choice - but when I press A nothing is loaded and the menu returns to the load a savegame screen, as if the game knows what savegames it has but does not find them?

The config file is:

No need for the config as the ingame save/load feature is independent of WinUAE. Does the saved game load at all (has it ever worked)? If not, you might want to use the savestate option of WinUAE instead.

I tried to lower floppy disk accelatrion from 800% to 200% and could load the savegame again. So now the game works and I can start it with only 1 click from the desktop

Don't increase the default disk speed (as it might break stuff you see ). Use 'End + Pause' to speed up the emulation and the same key combo to switch back to normal mode.

Right; however, with some games/demos, sometimes 800% will fail badly, whilst "Turbo" works fine I wonder what speed factor "Turbo" actually stands for, therefore...

Turbo just dumps the data to memory instantly, no DMA emulation, no floppy rotation emulation, no disk lowlevel stuff emulated.

Cool

Thanks Toni! I just didn't remember anymore.
(also thanks to TCD for that handy "help file" - bookmarked )

OK, so let's say I was ridiculously lucky that "my" game did not make extensive use of DMA, hence "Turbo" sped things up a lot without causing any side-effects!

"Turbo" works for me too.

As the game runs now I want to try to speed up the emulation.
Tried to change the CPU to 68030 or 68020 with JIP and both crashed the game very quickly. Are there any other settings that could enhance speed without lowering compatibility too much?

Pool of Radiance has an internal game speed setting from 0 (fastest) to 9 (slowest) and I currently need to use 1 to be able to stand larger fights without the need to have a nap, but 0 is too fast for rolling text. Having a faster emulation would allow me to use perhaps an internal higher delay so that fights run faster but text is still readable.

Well, there's also a way to tweak the clock speed...e. g. you can run an A500 game at twice the clock speed if you insist...even custom values are possible (but do NOT bug the developer(s) if something fails, since you're totally on your own with those tweaks, compare it to the unpredictable results if you clock a CPU or a RAM stick beyond their specifications)
