Excellent. I really like King's Valley. The conversion is great.

Heya ma693541,

After extracting the "Base install plus "Update Packs #1 - 50" incorporated" you should have:
  • The configuration file "C:\WinUAE\Configurations\Quake [AmigaCD].uae".
  • The <gamedir> "C:\WinUAE\Games\Quake AmigaCD".
With "Update Pack 51 - Part 1" you need to delete both of the above, as they've been replaced with different files.

Bah, it seems these days I'm constantly making small, silly mistakes with each release

Have just finished re-checking everything again, and there were these issues:

Descent [RTG] [D1X_Rebirth]:
Slightly wrong sized title / sshot; were 720x576 instead of 720x568.


Dungeon Master - Kid Dungeon [Apple IIGS conversion]:
- Wrong title screen; was from v3.60 instead of v2.0.
- Workbench mouse pointer in game along with game mouse pointer.


Gunboat:
"Port 2" was set to "Keyboard Layout B", changed to "None".

So please just download / extract this archive into "C:\WinUAE".

I know that, but other users of your collection that doesn't read this thread closely can get confused. Have a nice evening and week.

Cheers D.

You are a champion!

This collection is the ducks nuts. The amount of work you have put into it is amazing. Having such a well curated collection at my finger tips is awesome. As I said in my PM, your blood is worth bottling. I'm astounded at how much time and effort you have put into it, the missus would have my guts for garters if I spent that much time on the computer instead of working around the house.

Still trying to make sense of your posts...

First you say you only have a configuration file for "Quake [AmigaCD]" after extracting everything.

...and now you say: "but other users of your collection that doesn't read this thread closely can get confused".

How so? Anyway...

I have to admit, the ex-girlfriend wasn't too happy with the amount of time I spent on this project, or moderating EAB.

There were a few reasons why we split; this wasn't the main one but definitely didn't help at all...

Thank you Damien! I've been using your collection for a while and my family, friends and their kids love it when we run up WinUAE on the old PC and hand them control pads! They love the fact that they've never seen these old school beautiful pixel based games!

Surprised that even the adults love the Amiga tunes and then everyone around our age starts talking about all their favorite old school console games. The funniest part is seeing the kids roll their eyes at how "we" had the best times in gaming history!

An hour later, they all agree these old schools were way more fun in terms of raw gameplay.

Now I have to gradually move them from 2D platform (their favorite) to Sensible Soccer, to 3D action (I had to make a custom WinUAE Keyboard config using WASD) so they can get used to it. Next step would be 3D RPG and 3D FPS and action games like Descent.

Things I really like are the near instant experience. Even comparing to other emulators, we have to setup a menu, point it to "roms" or folders, scroll or sort through it, and then configure then launch the game.

This is just launch, type in keywords or partial phrase to quick filter, and click it to go.

Probably one of the part is that we can still "adjust" all the settings if we do not like it any of the default settings.

I can comment some of the 3D heavy games may need the CPU speed adjusted. My old PC sometimes need to set it to FASTEST possible or 4x to ensure butter smoothness. I think I am spoiled from the old PC DOOM, Duke Nukem or Quake snappy feel on native PC.

Keep up the great work.

Have just finished re-checking everything again, and there were these issues:

Mad TV:
- Vertical centring issue; so the title was slightly off screen.


Xiphos:
- The best controls are either "Control Mode 1" or "Control Mode 2". "Control Mode 2" requires "Port 2" to be set as "None".
- A thing to note with "Control Mode 2" though, is that for some reason you don't hear the thrusters sound.

So please just download / extract this archive into "C:\WinUAE".

Stating the blatantly obvious; yes

I absolutely love Space Taxi 3 on the Amiga, so always keen to try out other similar type games.

Bah; Space Cab deserves a better screenshot than just the opening level (even though it's iconic, being the only one I'd ever seen before):

Archive updated accordingly
