Good HD Installable games for 1mb Amiga

Hi There!

Can anyone suggest me some good games with HD install option for a 1mb ECS machine?

I already have the likes of Sim City, Mokey Island's, PGA Golf(if that works), Skidmarks.

Any suggestions welcome

Steve.

I have been playing a bit of D/Generation lately - it's a good old game!

hmm, i made a menu system with a 2 MB A600 with tested whd games. It was never finished completly but I think selectable with joy+mouse, A-Z and I also planned some tools, freeware games and workbench to be startable. It was intended for cdtv, but as I mentioned, it was never finished completly. I wanted to finish it some time. But it's also imposible to spread because of whd key, whd installs , etc.

Maybe I can take a look on the games I used there. But don't bag me on that, this project sleeping some years.

Hi!

Thanks for the reply's, I already know about WHDLoad games and which can run on 2mb A600 (Via Zetr0's AG Load)

This is a 1mb Amiga so no good for WHDLoad so just looking for HD installed games. (Floppy games with HD installer)

Or if anyone knows any that can be copied to HDD and run (without the need for tricks and assigns)

Cheers!

Steve.

Nothing wrong with running the game via a script with an assign or two in it, you'll find quite a few games will run this way.

You need to check the HD notes, but there are quite a few that'll work without any extra tricks

Hello,

Oh, sry, I misunderstood you

Well, there are some games running even without install. Sim City should work, also Sim City CDTV without CD sound.

Basically anything which had it's own HD installer.

Amberstar, Ambermoon, Lionheart, Dungeon Master (Psygnosis version?), Hired Guns, Brian the Lion, Dune, Dune2, Eye of the Beholder series, Flashback, Elite 2, Indiana Jones adventures, Lemmings 2, Pinball fantasies, Secret of Monkey Island, Simon the Sorcerer, Ugh!

Countless others I must have missed out :
