I prefer the OCS version myself, but that goes to show the wider appeal of releasing both OCS and AGA versions.

It was great fun, actually; the more so since the owner of the original, flaky disk was so pleased to be able to play the full version of the game once more.

The only reason it's not featured on HOL is because it's not yet occurred to anyone to submit it.

...another one to check out
Good job I remembered to check back on this thread then

Nice to see some kind words for Downfall even now. I enjoyed making both versions - the ECS version was the first and it was great for us to finish the game so quickly and the AGA version looked a bit slicker at very little effort in terms of code (although probably more from Predseda with the graphics).

In an effort to be a little less modest may I point you in the direction of Maxwell Mouse And The Missing Game Mystery too! One day the full game will be finished I swear...

Chrome

You guys probably know my pet hate of having numerous games on a single floppy... so I've created a standalone version of "Chrome" from the coverdisk "CU Amiga Disk 35 (June 1992 issue)": http://amr.abime.net/issue_594_coverdisks

Now in The Zone! for anyone who wants it.

Cheers for that; very cool game indeed

Nobody has created a trained disk of this as yet

I know there are cheat codes on HOL though but still: http://hol.abime.net/6038/cheatcode

Belgarath (or anyone else really),

With the one of the games you've suggested; "Genesia", do I need to install this onto HD?

Tried running the .ADFs and it asks me "is the game installed on HD"? "Yes / No".

I select No, type in a name, the game reboots and goes through the same loop

No you don't have to install to HD, you click no but then you have to follow the onscreen instructions very carefully.

edit: main thing is use df0: only, write enable disk 2 as it tells you to and when the game reboots it loads from disk2 which then goes into the game proper.

...am I being a muppet again (don't answer that my friend)

So many games to configure; doing a sort of "speed dating" run

No joking really; that would totally avoid the point of testing if I was to be rushing things.

Ok, problem with Genesia was that I had all three disks inserted into DF0 + DF1 + DF2...

After Belgarath's hint I had only the first 2 disks in DF0 + DF1; then you get the message about putting Disk 3 into DF0, the game does it's stuff, reboots and all is fine

Of course I could but it would be a bit of a mission...

I have the games stored under the directory "C:\WinUAE\Games". Each game then has it's own directory and inside this there are:

1) .ADF or .IPF files.
2) sometimes .TXT files for Cheats / Hints / Level Codes / Walkthroughs etc...
3) sometimes .DOC files for information like above.
4) sometimes .PDF files for Manuals.

If I was to create a DAT using ClrMamePro and point it to "C:\WinUAE\Games" isn't it going to add 2 / 3 / 4 also?

This isn't good... I mean I could move all the 2s / 3s / 4s out of the individual game directories before creating a DAT file but that's going to be a real pain in the bum

just do a search for *.adf or *.zip whichever it is in your games dir, and then from the results copy them all into a new dir.

Yeah silly me Belgo

...did this exact thing a month or so ago when I was grabbing my collection of .TXT / .DOC / .PDF / .PNG files related to Cheats / Hints / Level Codes / Walkthroughs so that I could send to someone in one zip archive.
