Uninvited?

Well you don't need a HD *installer* for this old game, simply copy the disk contents (it's an AmigaDOS disk) to your HD folder and that's it.

This is true for most games, although there is quite a few that won't let you do it

These ones that don't usually try to access DF0:

Most games can be fooled with an ASSIGN command, some cannot (mainly those who acces directly the trackdisk.device, or something )

Give it a try, a lot of games can be installed this way (I remmeber i did this with Crazy Cars 3, Titus the Fox, and...and... i forgot :P)

You can do something like this:

assign GameDisk1: ""
assign GameDisk2: ""

This assigns each disk name to the current directory and is thus relative, which means that the directory can be moved around.

I've installed many games this way, if there is no WHDLoad/JST install available.

But, don't do this!!!

assign GameDisk1: DH0:Games/GameName

Me too since there's no guarantee I'll be running the game from that directory. ie. I may use something like ToolsDaemon to launch it and I don't wanna put a "CD Sys:bleh/bleh"
