Floppy drives

Hello, i need some help with those.
When i start a game and press F12 using amigaforever i get the winuae meny version 1.5.0 and under Floppy drives, where i emulate games etc. I should be able to use all four drives


When i mark the boxes so the field is not grey anymore and i can browse for a game, i do that and also picks 3.5ยจ DD as DF0 is from start.
I choose dune2 for an example and DF0,1,2,3 with the four first discs of dune2 and when it says "please insert disc2 into any drive" it doesnt work, i still have to use DF0 all the time, its very annoying and swapping for 6 discs as dune2 is just frustrating.

When i had my amiga 1200 we had a HDD with workbench 3.0x and installed games on it and never used discs for some games, is it possible to do something like that?

First - get rid of AmigaForever - its pretty rubbish (although you get the ROMs legally )

Then download the latest version of WinUAE from www.winuae.net

Then have a look at ClassicWB from classicwb.abime.net

You will need to copy some of your ROMs into the Devs/Kickstarts folder and rename them - also copy the rom.key file into there as well.

If you want games then have a look at www.whdownload.com for your download needs.

It is worth registering WHDLoad - the software is still being developed and supported and is a fantastic program that deserves all the support we can give it. www.whdload.de

What coze said. Some games don't support more than one disk drive, even if they have 4 disks or more Maybe it works if you only activate two drives, that Dune 2 at least uses the second drive.
