Adding games to GBAmiga 1.4.3. with multiple disk and drives ?

Is it possible to add some games to GBAmiga and configure GBAmiga that it loads the games from multiple disks in multiple drives ? Eg. Zool_disk1.zip in DF0: and Zool_disk2.zip in DF1: ?

Short answer: No

A lot of Amiga games only had support for the first disk drive, Zool is one of them, there's absolutely nothing you can do about that, it's just the way the game was written.

With GameBase Amiga, if a game with more than 1 disk supports more than 1 drive then they are automatically loaded into as many extra drives as the game allows, if it's set to only use 1 drive then that's because the game only supports 1 drive.

If diskswapping annoys you though, you should use the WHDLoad versions, then there won't be any diskswapping at all!

Ok, short and precise answer Thank you. Just one more thing. If I add a game to GBAmiga with more disks. Do I have to tell GBAmiga that thats a multipe disk game , and if yes how ?

I have to check that WHDload thing... only heard of it
