Coolio, no problem at all

Hopefully you should just need to do this example exactly:

I believe that it shouldn't matter if on DH0 / DH1 / DH2 etc. due to how I've set the assigns...

...but give it a bash and let us know if all good.

Let's say you extracted the LHA file to "SYS:Games" (so the game is now located in "SYS:Games/onEscapee"). Using a text edit change these lines:
To avoid editing you could've write

Assign OnEscapee: ""
Assign OnEsaves: OnEscapee:SaveGame

"" assigns to the folder where from the script was started

Cheers Cobe, good to know; but am not going to change things now... Can't go through another 4+ hours of LHA'ing

In terms of using a different extraction path then a slight change to 2 x assigns, I think that what I've written is very quick / easy for everyone.

@AmigaBill; tested in WinUAE with having: DH0 + DH1 + DH2. Extracted the archive to "DH2:Games" (so really "DH2:Games/onEscapee"), edited the "DH2:Games/onEscapee/onEscapee" file exactly as mentioned and all working perfectly. So you shouldn't have an issue

Damn it...

...it's the perfectionist in me (plus I definitely see the benefit)

My father used to always say (and never a truer statement mentioned): "If you are going to do a job, do it properly."

...so have made the changes that Cobe suggested and am re-LHA'ing. Using "warp" mode in WinUAE so should be done in a few hours. Stay tuned

New file uploaded after the excellent suggestions from my friend Cobe

This file is now *universal*. Extract to whatever hard drive / path that you like; without any user adjustments required afterwards

...sorry to anyone that downloaded earlier today but this I feel this last change was necessary to have a complete package

Hahah I wrote you that more like a suggestion for future projects and first when you wrote that you won't go thru 4h lhaing I thought, sure neither would I. But yeah I'm familiar with that feeling that doesn't stop to bug you until you make even the smallest changes to something to make it perfect

Exactly, would have definitely bugged me knowing a better solution but not actually spending the relatively small amount of extra time to implement
