ClassicWB v28 - Assign-Startup and 2nd partition issue

Hi all,

I'm pulling my hairs off trying to add a couple of drives with games to Assign-Startup and then generate GamesMenu.menu via AddGames script
Maybe some will be able to help me and point me what I'm doing wrong here. Here are the details:

1. I Have a ClassicWB3.9 (v28) with BB1&2 installed.
2. I have created a couple more PFS3-AIO RDB HDF <4GB drives for demos, games and other stuff:
  • 500 MB - Backup
  • 2000 MB - Programs
  • 3500 MB - Games1
  • 3500 MB - Games2
  • 2000 MB - Demoscene

Partition "Games1" contains "Games" folder with WHDLoad games (A-P folders)
Partition "Games2" contains "WHDLoad/Games" folders with WHDLoad games (Q-Z folders)

My Assign-Startup file looks like this:
Code:
;ClassicWB Assign-Startup
;------------------------
;GAAE 68K LITE FULL ADV ADVSP P96 OS39

Assign >NIL: A-Demos: Demoscene:Demos
Assign >NIL: A-Games: Games1:Games
Assign >NIL: A-Games: Games2:WHDLoad/Games ADD
Assign >NIL: A-MyFiles: SYS:MyFiles
Assign >NIL: A-Programs: SYS:Programs
Assign >NIL: A-Temp: SYS:Temp

After booting up the machine, when I run "assign list", I can see that assign ADD was successful:

Code:
Volumes:
Ram Disk [Mounted]
Demoscene [Mounted]
PC [Mounted]
Games2 [Mounted]
Games1 [Mounted]
Programs [Mounted]
Backup [Mounted]
System [Mounted]

Directories:
MUI            System:System/MUI
AWEB_APL       System:Internet/AWeb_APL
VMEM           System:T
LAUNCH         System:System/BMenu/Files
A-Temp         System:Temp
A-Programs     System:Programs
A-MyFiles      System:MyFiles
A-Games        Games1:Games
             + Games2:WHDLoad/Games
A-Demos        Demoscene:Demos
HELP           System:Locale/Help
             + System:System/MUI/Docs
..
..

Devices:
PIPE VNC VNR RAM CON
RAW SER PAR PRT DH0
DF0 CC0 Backup Programs Games1
Games2 Demoscene PC
Now comes the funny part - when I run AddGames script, it generates ONLY A-P games from the 1st partition - "Games1". When I wrongly (on purpose) modify Assign-Startup like this:

Code:
;ClassicWB Assign-Startup
;------------------------
;GAAE 68K LITE FULL ADV ADVSP P96 OS39

Assign >NIL: A-Demos: Demoscene:Demos
Assign >NIL: A-Games: Games1:Games
Assign >NIL: A-Games: Games2:WHDLoad/Games
Assign >NIL: A-MyFiles: SYS:MyFiles
Assign >NIL: A-Programs: SYS:Programs
Assign >NIL: A-Temp: SYS:Temp
(I'm removing ADD parameter from ASSIGN)

then AddGames script generates Q-Z game paths in the .menu file

I have read all the related posts like:

but I could not find any working solution. Any ideas what I'm doing wrong here? I assume it's a typical PEBCAK - problem exists between chair and keyboard

No need to create lots of partitions. The 4GB limit is per drive, not partition.
So only the first partition needs to be within first 4GB.
If you have patched your system so you can use a large drive, you can also use large partitions. (See FAQ in signature)

fgh, thanks for your reply. I've made a mistake here - these are not partitions, but drives - Game1 is a single-partition 3,5GB drive, as well as Games2. I have edited my 1st post accordingly.
