whdload key

Hey guys

Maybe a pointless thread but I don't care really. I just wanted to say thanks to everyone behind the project. Thanks for all the packs, without whdload I don't think I would have ever gone back to the Amiga because of the loading times. Also thanks for the swift time it took to get the key, site states 3-4 days, mine was under 24 hours. Big thanks to TCD for all his help on the IRC channel.

So basically thanks for all your help

Cheers

Indeed Even if you don't play games that often, it's still worth supporting

Another thumbs-up, here.

I'd been using an unregistered version for a few years, and finally got my backside into registering week or so back.

The registration process was painless, and within a day or so I was the proud owner of my very own WHDload key.

I'd just like to thank everyone who has put so much time and effort into this.

Never had a key. Never used WHDload for that matter
In fact, I don't really know what it is, so .. any light, anyone ?

It's a great project and I'd love to support it by buying a key, but however altruistic I like to think I am, I don't play enough games (nor often enough) to warrant the expense.

Having said that, I dare say I will buy a key at some future point - when I've got a bit more disposable income!

15 does seem much for such a tiny file. I'm pretty sure it was 10 when I registered it?

I thought that as well. But after seeing how fast you can skip games without the nag screen I think it's worth 20

I would go as far to say that it's the best 15 I've ever spent on something Amiga-related.

just waiting for the key to come through

I have all the music demo packs from Killer Gorilla (main reason i started using WHDLoad) and they run flawlessly on my emulated A1200 (WinUAE).

To be able to boot any demo of my choosing with just a couple of clicks and return to the workbench to load a different one instantly with the push off a button and a couple of clicks is -for me- priceless.

15 is a bargain

While I'm without-a-shadow-of-a-doubt happy that I have my very own keyfile, I do feel the program was aimed mainly at those with newer Real Amigas. I mean, with WinUAE, if a program isn't working quite right on HD, there's always another configuration to try it on, and at no extra (hardware) cost.

Still there are a lot of games that you can't get to work from HD no matter what config you use.

I wouldn't dream of bothering, if it's just for WinUAE! Got my A1200 all nicely configured now and I do have a small collection of WHDLoad games on there. I don't mind the wait but I am a bit annoyed that Dungeon Master 2 AGA won't work unless I register.

I don't think any Street Fighter games do either or Project X CD32 maybe even SE edition to

Could be wrong.
