How to run non-ADF files?

Hello. I'm fairly new to WinUAE, and have figured out some basic functions to it (e.g. running games in *.adf format), but I've recently downloaded some games that don't use this format, and have various files such as *.exe, *.info, *.slave, etc.

They don't show up in the Floppy Disks section, so how do I run these games? Thanks.

At the Select floppy disk image file... menu, choose All files (*.*) for Files of type:

That should allow you to see everything in the folder, exes included. Now just select what you want and voila! if the file's executable, it will be run automatically. E.g. Cryptoburners - Sunrise.exe

You can also drag and drop them into the field.

You may also need a Workbench installation and WHDLoad for some of these.

You can run .exe file same way as .adf file but game must be in single file. Information about .info files: http://teleinfo.pb.edu.pl/~krashan/articles/amigaicons/

The .slave one sounds like a whdload file, you sure you`ve downloaded floppies and not HD installs?.

True. If a game/app/demo has more than one file (won't run if you put the 'exe' in DF0), you'll need to set a WB harddisk up. Have a look here : http://guide.abime.net/wbsetup.htm
For .slave files you'll need WHDLoad : http://www.whdload.de/index.html
