Use the hdf from a game with a near configuration, change the data folder, and edit startup-sequence in [S] (Total Commander is your friend to do all this quickly)

You got to get familiar with the various configuration but there are not too many.
Yes it's very easy to create a bare-bones / self-booting WHDLoad .HDF.

I wrote some step-by-step instructions for ransom1122 many moons ago: <click>

I'm currently downloading missing "Boxart" from OpenRetro.

Afterwards I then manually adjust / fix any using my Photoshop skills

Examples are as follows:

It's a very slow, boring process but will look great once complete

Absolutely not related, but i tested the "Wrong Way driver" package you released recently and i have a "Needs Amiga 500 (Pal) + 512 kb or better." message and the game stop loading.

EDIT : No, in fact it's just a bit slow to launch but it eventually works...

Sorry, just got back from a lunch / evening drinking with a friend who came into London. Haven't seen him in 3 years.

All games in my collection have been tested numerous times and should just work

Can you be more specific please?

When does it guru, loading or in-game?

Have you changed any config settings? I just tried 800% x Floppy Drive Emulation Speed and all good.

Just tried Nightdawn. I didn't play much but it works fine. Reminded me of Uridium a bit.

I have tried it with trainer options all on and all off and no issues here either. A corrupt file maybe?

Normal speed, without or with crack I load it and wait without doing anything after a while, while playing the song the game crashes

I don't know what to suggest as it works fine here and also for wanderer plus enigma776.

Try extracting the files again.

This "Boxart" process to taking a long time

Now just about finished the letter "S"; which is by far the largest number of games.

Had a few more difficult ones:
