Changing disks (Multiple disk games)


Little question;

When running SPS / ADF disk images via Gamebase Amiga 1.6 and WinUAE 1.6.1, how do I change disks? I note WinUAE allows you to press END + F1 to bring up a requester to change disks, but that is long winded as i then have to sift through the directories to change the disk to disc 2, etc. Is their another way, i.e. to swap ADF images in the disk drives? Biggest annoyance is software developers who wrote software for the amiga that didn't make use of the external disk drive, so some multiple disk games insist on loading from drive DF0:! Thanks for answering my query!

You could use the disk swapper. Here is how to set it up : http://www.vware.at/winuaehelp/gui/disk.htm
and here are the keyboard shortcuts :

- Disk swapper key shortcuts.
END+1-0 (not numeric keypad) = insert image from swapper slot 1-10
END+SHIFT+1-0 = insert image from swapper slot 11-20
END+CTRL+1-4 = select drive

Hope that helps.

As far as I recall, GBA actually configures the disk swapper automatically, so yeah, you can just use it.

(That memory is a bit fuzzy, so sorry of I'm wrong.)
