Noob question. .ROM file?

Hi. I am a complete noob. So i may sound useless!

i'm following the TweakGudies.com guide on how to setup WinEAU. And i'm stuck at the very beginning. Good start!

It told me to purchase a package from Amiga Forever. I did so. I purchased the Value edition, which supposedly has the KickStart.ROM image. Where is this?

I opened up WinEAU and went to the 'Paths' section and it told me to place the .ROM image in a folder, along with my .ADF game files and change the directory to that folder on the .ROM destination path.

The problem i am only able to find 3 .ROM files with this Amiga forever package:

amiga-os-120.ROM
amiga-os-130.ROM
amiga-os-310-a1200.ROM

Are these it? I place these files in the folder and it says it's unavailble or something. Any help guys?

Yes, these rom files are enough to play all Amiga games. Version 1.2 - only few older games, 1.3 - most Amiga 500 games, 3.1 for Amiga 1200 games.

I place these files in a new folder and change the path, but then i get an error message giving me a list of some roms are unavailable. like A500, A500+ and A600 etc.?

You also need to place the file 'rom.key' in the same folder when using AF roms.

Why don't you use the Amiga Forever player? IIRC you can 'scan' a directory for games and they will show up in the player.

What file/files do i need from the Amiga game? Is it just the .adf file? I downloaded a bills tomato game.adf file and opened it in the AmigaForever player and a blue screen loaded up where i could enter some cheats or something. But i couldn't go any further! Hmmmm
