How to make a WHDLoad game on hard drive..?

I have a tutorial but where do i get these from...

* AsmOne/Pro (with Amiga Includes)
* ReSource 6
* XFDDecrunch
* Hex editor
* Grab

If my disk is a Dos disk and i can see the files on the disk do i need to copy it with DIC and use Grab to find the bootsector..??

How do i do it if i can see the files and i know which file starts the game..?

Well, I don't want to spoil your fun but it doesn't sound like you know 68k assembly language? Without that it is pretty much impossible to create a whdload slave.

I don't think you looked too hard did you?

I tend to agree with Stingray that you're probably going to find this very tough very quickly. But best of luck with it

You probably won't need all of these at once, but in addition to this you will require:

Pen, paper, good calculator, 68000 book and patience

You may also find some of the tutorials at http://www.flashtro.com good for some background info.

Go to the Grab link twice. First time Tripod will realise you're linking from an external site, then the cookie/session link is made, and it will work 2nd time!

There is a problem with certain filetypes on the current Action site, I will update it at some point.
