WHDLoad Folder?

So according to the docs you can use a Zip of a WHDLoad to launch straight into a game, but is it possible to use the already extracted folder of the WHDLoad?

I tried running it as...

Code:
fs-uae --hard_drive_0=/mnt/store/Emulation/Games/Amiga/WHDLoad/A/Arkanoid
But unfortunately it just booted me to an AROS prompt. Is it possible to use a folder rather than a Zip file and if so, what am I doing wrong?

No, it is FS-UAE Launcher which has the feature where it can dynamically create a bootable hard drive based on a "zipped" WHDLoad game (mostly intended to be used with the online database. FS-UAE itself does not contain any such logic.

(Btw, If you get an AROS prompt, this means that FS-UAE could not find an original Kickstart ROM, and the result will be less compatibility with games/software).

Ahh, silly me. I'll load the kickstarts and games into FS-UAE then play about with FS-UAE Launcher instead and see how it goes. Thanks Frode.

Funny, I thought that AROS was not built into FS-UAE
