@FOL I'll keep them on my maybe list, though my preference at this stage is for games that don't require keyboard support (Turrican 1 & 2, though would change my mind if WHDLoad slaves with joypad support become available) and games that don't have native CD32 versions (American Challenge + Lotus Trilogy).

@mombasajoe Either!

Goal! (donīt know if this would work with the WHDload patch)
Banshee
PGA European Tour
Worms
Alien Breed 3D
Lemmings
Speedball 2
Diggers

There would be many more Games, but I donīt know if there are appropriate versions available.

I am strongly interested in 2 player games.

I don't see why it shouldn't. I don't really see a reason for using it on a CD32 either though as the game uses quite a few keys and mapping all of them to the CD32 joypad is not possible (read: way too much work).

You would mostly need the function to exchange players and zoom in and out. Some functions could be left out like when coping with replays.

Yes, that would work of course and I thought about that too. I will see about adding CD32 pad support to the slave but it most probably won't happen in the near future as I currently have so many other things to do. I'll add it to my evergrowing "to do" list.

Great! I appreciate so much you did the WHDload patch! And I read all the threads about it and how much work it was!

@earok: now you edited, I see you mainly want to go for games that are not available for CD32 yet?

Thanks everyone! I've included WIP, maybe and slave wishlists for the project in the OP.

I'm primarily looking at games that weren't originally playable on a CD32 sans keyboard, most other Amiga titles are either already on the CD32 or one of the 100+ game compilation discs. Definitely not opposed to games already playable on ISOs but they're down the priority list.

Can anyone confirm/deny if it's going to be OK if I link to ISOs in this thread?

Making progress on the project, 1943, Battle Squadron and Desert Strike are all in my WIP version.

I feel like a real idiot - Desert Strike kept quitting out as soon as it hit the menu, and I assumed it was a memory issue and spent a couple of hours trying to resolve it. Turns out that the toolkit's default quit key (Play) was in some way interfering with it, removing the default quit key option from the WHDLoad settings was all I had to do.

I haven't seen Mr Nutz on any compilation (but maybe I'm wrong). It will be a perfect game for the CD32 (And I don't remember it needing keyboard, but there will be problems with saving :/ ).

Having some problems with Alien Breed 3D. My dilemma is this:

- I can't get the WHDLoad versions to work (presumably, not enough memory on the CD32).
- I can directly run the Amiga CD32 version, but there doesn't appear to be a no-copy protection patch for this.
- I can directly run the Amiga 1200 version, which can be patched for no-copy protection, but I need a keyboard to enter level passwords.

Argh! What do I do?

I wasnīt aware that Alien Breed has copy protection.

Here are some games that I think might work well and I think they were not available on CD32 (although thatīs difficult to find out for me):

Buggy Boy
Fifa International Soccer
IK+
Indianapolis 500 (but with good car setup)
Loom
Marble Madness
North and South
Nitro
Rick Dangerous 1+2
Space Harrier - Return to the Fantasy Zone
Speedball 1
Super Cars 1
Zak McKracken

Edit: Argh I think you would need the keyboard for some games. Thatīs a difficult task!

@Zak Alien Breed "3D" does. And it's a real pain.

I've gone through and sorted your suggestions into the lists, cheers.
