Hi D,
Not sure if this is useful to you.
you can open the .TOAST files in WinRAR.

Interesting, thanks mad

Thing is, the .TOAST image of the CD-ROM is supposed to be dual Windows and MAC formats.

I can mount in Daemon Tools and see it in Windows; usually I can't with any MAC CD-ROM.

Problem is that no MAC emulator i.e. Basilisk II for Windows or Shapeshifter recognise the mounted .TOAST image.

Doesn't matter anyway, this game will require a MAC PowerPC; and these are not supported in either MAC emulator...

This was released in 1996 i.e. 4 years after the original; has better graphics and possibly other things

So just download / extract this archive into "C:\WinUAE".
Hmmm, decided to change "Details Level: Low" --> "Details Level: High" for both "Alone in the Dark [RTG] [ShapeShifter]" & "Alone in the Dark (Enhanced CD-ROM) [RTG] [ShapeShifter]".

Also took a new screenshot for "Alone in the Dark (Enhanced CD-ROM) [RTG] [ShapeShifter]":
Finally, decided to rename "Alone in the Dark Enhanced CD-ROM [RTG] [ShapeShifter]" --> "Alone in the Dark (Enhanced CD-ROM) [RTG] [ShapeShifter]". This way both "Alone in the Dark [RTG] [ShapeShifter]" & "Alone in the Dark (Enhanced CD-ROM) [RTG] [ShapeShifter]" are next to each other in the list of games

So, please do the following:
  • Delete the configuration file "C:\WinUAE\Configurations\Alone in the Dark Enhanced CD-ROM [RTG] [ShapeShifter].uae" (if you previously downloaded / applied this).
  • Delete the <gamedir> "C:\WinUAE\Games\Alone in the Dark Enhanced CD-ROM MAC RTG" (if you previously downloaded / applied this).
  • Download / extract this archive into "C:\WinUAE".

Hello Damien,
Old Amiga fan, I was using my own configs and files until my HDD crashed couple of weeks ago. I was wondering how I could have access to your amazing work?
By the way: do you have english versions of the games or also international ones?
Thanks.

Heya Nerces,

I'm very sorry to hear that

Usually people just send me a PM, but no need now as I've read your post

Mainly English if I'm honest, but there are a few other language games when there's no English version available.

Thanks Damien
I did not lost everything but lots of the config files and many of my favourite games. Luckily, they are the easiest to find on the Web.

Mainly English? Are you interested in foreign versions to complete your 'collection'? I might still be able to get some.

It depends really.

I mean, there's no point me adding in a French adventure game e.g. The Short Grey; or a German strategy game e.g. Kingdoms of Germany, as I'd have no idea what's going on.

Manged to get Escape Velocity Override working in "Basilisk II for Windows" on "MAC OS 7.5.5"; so this will work in "Shapeshifter"


In regards to Escape Velocity Nova, I installed "MAC OS 8.1", "QuickTime 4" and the game. Unfortunately though I cannot change the display from grey --> color and have no idea why

Yes 128MB just to be sure; though the game only requires 64MB.

You can only use 1MB ROMs with Basilisk II and ShapeShifter... so I use the "Quadra 950.rom".

Yeah I tried with a Quadra 950 and it wasn't having any of it, used a Performa 630 and it was in colour.

Interesting

...I've deleted everything now i.e. the "MAC OS 8.1" .HFV and the "Escape Velocity Nova" .HFV files that I created.

I redo tomorrow and see if all working in Basilisk II first.

Do you know if the can also use the Performa 630 ROM in ShapeShifter?

Did you tick the MacOS 8 mode in Shapeshifter GUI?
Performa 580/588 ROM with MacOS 8.1 works for me.

Genius

How did I miss that option under "Miscellaneous"?

...but when I boot my .HFVs, the MAC OS is only in greyscale and I'm unable to view the whole 800x600 in WinUAE:

Ok, set the display back to 640x480 and also managed to set 256 colors
Next problem is my "EV_Nova.hfv" doesn't show up, need to recheck things...

Also "Escape Velocity Nova" requires a resolution of 800x600 or the screen is cut. Not sure how I'll get around this.
