WHDLoad Games and resolutions/screens


i want to test some of the WHDLoad games, so i installed lates WHDLoad "usr" version and got some games.

I am running Amiga OS3.9 in WIn-UAE 2.5.1 at fullscreen (1920x1080) resolution.
All games i´ve tested so far, running in that resolution, too.

Is there a way, to change the resolution for games, for example to 800x600 and run them in a window on the workbench or on another screen?

Afair, amiga os can run different applications on different screens (and resolutions)

You're right that AmigaOS can run programs on different screens with multitasking, however WHDLoad disables the OS completely (puts it aside to a safe place) as most games are non-system friendly. It can swap the OS back in for writing save games for example but while this happens, the game is stalled.

So no, I don't think it is possible on classic Amigas. However, if you run WB4+ on PPC, it could run WHDLoad in an emulated environment in a window, just like you can on your Windows machine.
