Hi old amiga user with a new amiga

Having Donated my amiga a3000t to the retro computer museum for safekeeping I have bought myself a new toy,

An a1200
Currently been setting up a cf card with os3.1 using win UAE, I seem to have cracked it at last and it has been a steep learning curve using amiga dos and learning about file systems and libraries WTD. All very good fun though!!

Am setting it up as a whd load machine
So far it has
4gb cf card on the IDE
Aca 1220
PCMCIA cf card reader

In the post is
Rgb scart
3.1 Roms

Should be good fun once it is running,

It's taking a while to transfer all the whdload games to the cf card in whdload but kind of impressed I have learnt a few amigados commands to copy and actually see the progress as opposed to just the clock image

I have installed scalos and various other utilities and all seems well,
Also purchased amiga forever so have a legal set of Roms for whdload
(Although I own a 500)

Lets see how this all goes

Couple of questions, is there a way to direct boot cd32 games on amiga??
Is there a way to directly run adf images without copying them to a floppy? (In the case there isn't a whdload version of the game)

Yes you can run ADF without to copy on floppy, use Thomas XFS mount adf program.

VirtualCD is a nice little program for mounting isos.
Im also a fan of unadf, which will extract contents of an adf image. Extract to a rad disk (shell, "mount rad:"), and youre good to go on. Wont work with ndos disks however.
There's also things like virtualfloppy, fms, and a shedload of others.

MountADF was done by Arnie, not by me.

And no, you can not run games like this. Only AmigaDOS disks can be mounted virtually. Most games don't use AmigaDOS and require that you boot from the game disk. These games need to be written to real floppy disks.
