#-Z CD32 Mega Project

Over the last 5 years i have put together various CD32 compilation discs, the last couple of years i have been consolidating them down into this years set of discs, of which around 1000 games were included.


Now i want to go one step further and for 2021 i want to release the biggest ever collection of Amiga OCS disk games from 1985-2000 on CD.

Starting with the whdload games collection as a base, i want to get as many games running on the CD32 without any expansions.


The awesome CD32load from JOTD has already changed the landscape for CD32 owners by giving access to many games within stock RAM, and i will add as many games that work on the latest build for that.


For those that don't, i will use WHDload, and if they require extra memory and have a screen flash on loading, i will use cracked ADF games and extract and load games that way where possible, if that is not possible then i will state needs FastRAM as a last resort to still include the game and hopefully revisit the game later. Other trouble-some games without an official slave will be loaded via a generic whdload slave where possible.


Everything else not working yet or is MIA will be listed here.

Order in which games shall be attempted to loaded by:

1 - CD32Load
2 - WHDLoad
3 - Cracked ADF game ripping, or HDD installs
4 - WHDLoad with FastRAM
5 - Use generic WHDLoad slaves with FastRAM


To start with i will make a single disc ISO for every letter of the alphabet and # for numbers, in total 27 ISO's, when these are complete (as can be) i will condense these down to an estimated 6-7 ISO's to be used on the CD32.

I will also condense everything down into 1 large ISO for those who use emulators and prefer to load an ISO rather than faff around with hard disks and the like.

I am redoing all the game menu images as well, the images are small enough as it is, so i prefer them without black bars and all using in-game images unlike other image sets, plus the i-game sets needed converting and all changing first image colour and grabbing from a single game folder, the time taken is not much different than creating from scratch.

And finally game information added, a few extra lines of detail has been added over my other discs, again this all takes time but i feel makes up for it when it will be finished.

Stuff being left out (for now)

1 - AGA games - (i have made a separate AGA disc and these can always be added at the end)
2 - Non-English games - (other than those having a basic foreign language menu to start play with no problems)
3 - Educational ‘games’ - (whilst some titles have basic games these are more ‘educational’ and will be left out)

As you can see it's a huge project to set myself, so i won't rush it and set myself a time-frame, it certainly won't be out this year, so 2021 is as vague as it gets for now!

Awesome Amigajay! Will you consider offering the one big ISO as HDD image as well, for those that have CD32 expansion cards with HDD/CF? Or do you think that's Earok's task with this: http://eab.abime.net/showthread.php?...t=classic+cd32

Yeah people with hdd's have other options, these are being tested to run from disc and have some files removed to keep the size down to fit onto discs , that's not to say people can't use the files in whatever way they want, i just don't have any interest on the hdd image side of things

That's a monstruous project!

you can use contents of my RUGCD ISO disk containing 100% cd32load games. There's a OK category where all games are tested & working, & data is unpacked and ready. run scripts are also okay (touchy in the case of AGA games)

Some would need slave updating because 1) bugfixes and 2) joypad added directly in slave so JOYPAD=0 should be set. A lot of them have been done since (Turrican 2, Gods, ...)

It is, but my other projects have sort of always been leading upto something like this, in that the discs have been growing and consolidating over the last couple of years.

Thanks for the offer, but as you say some are out of date and will need testing, so i’m just doing everything from scratch and only using some from my A-Z discs that i have altered in using CD32 buttons in place of keyboard commands.

Yes everything will take longer, but i have nowhere to go after this project in terms of size, so i want to take my time, enjoy doing and playing some games i would never have touched otherwise!

I understand. For CD32load, you can use the settings from this page:

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets...4LI/edit#gid=0

for instance getting this setting right can be quite long (Street Racer):

Code:
NOVBRMOVE JOYPAD=2 RESLOAD_TOP=0x1EBDD0 FREEBUFFER=0x1D19D0 CPUCACHE CDBUFFER=0x100000 CDBUFFER2=0x10000
It's an AGA game where some locations in memory are usable for the CD buffer, but the memory isn't aligned on 0x10000 so we have to use a third buffer... Even I can't remember exactly how it's done, but without that, you cannot satisfy all requirements to load the game from CD.


What's also a limitation in CD32load is that it doesn't support XPK data (whdload does), so you have to check that data isn't packed.

The 1000 game milestone past this week!

I'm going back adding UK prices to the info bar as i feel its part of the nostalia knowing and remembering prices of games, will take a week or so to update with that info, but i'm still on target for 1500 by the end of the year, and 2500 by the end of April.
