1200 and memory

Hi guys

Just bought an amazing a1200 with a cf flash drive - contains some awesome games!
some games say "cannot find shadowmem" is there a way to free up some memory to play them? Lion Heart for example. Apparently I need some kind of expansion if I were to buy some standard memory - where do I buy from?

Thanks for reading.

Are you using the WHDLoad versions?? If so, yes, you need to expand your Amiga.

I think so, yes? They were preloaded when I bought it. If I do need to expand where would I buy the memory expansion?

There's a trade forum here on EAB, or you could try amibay.com.

Is there another type of format I could use then that would stop it asking for more memory? Is there a way to put onto a real disc and play on my 1200?

You can write ADF's back to Disk and play from floppy, but trust me this isn't fun in this day and age

You can download the tools you need on Aminet or you can buy EasyADF from Amigakit, you need a way to get the ADF's onto the Amiga, PCMCIA CF Adapter is the easiest way.

It will be a much better experience if you grab yourself a 4mb/8mb trapdoor Ram upgrade, it will cost you 30-60 depending on where you find it, there are quite a few eBay sellers who have these at the higher end of the price guide (or even higher which is daylight robbery) or you can try Amibay where you might get one a little cheaper.

All the best,

Steve.

Hi Steve

I have just downloaded this file. What do I do with it? Copy and paste to a real disc and pop it in my 1200?
