Because behind these Laser games in the Arcades was an Amiga powering them

You don't like it, that's ok... do what hitm4n does and delete them out of your copy of my collection.

Quite simple really, instead of questioning my choices related to my collection / moaning at me.

no no DamienD, it's not a questionning of your choice. just Wonder why it was related.
I didn't know that it was an Amiga behind those Laser Games (thought it was a kind of CDI).
Thanks for claryfying this point. Still learning...
thanks

Ok, apologies then.

If honest though, just getting a little bored of people saying "Why have you included this in your collection?" etc...

I love the laser games. It was such a historic spot in gaming history and even more awesome that the Amiga powered some of those beautiful arcade cabinets back then!

Sorry amigappc, but definitely not I'm afraid.

That would take me years to do

I managed to set up a new WinUAE, with all the new configurations. I’m impressed and very happy. Everything works and it brings tears to my eyes because I can relive some of my childhood memories again. I now have the most accurate representation of my best gaming years. For me it is the best Amiga “reconstruction” I ever had on my PC. Still my old Amiga 500 is in the closet as I’m afraid to touch it, and still missing a monitor.
Thank you Damien for all your efforts. You are very kind to share all this work.

Tried every conceivable "A500 / A500+ / A600" Quickstart but the results are always the same.

Compare these screenshots with the HOL entry:


Hopefully there's an .IPF I can try.

Hey man. I got this to run correctly when i was testing these games. In the end every ADF i tried was no good, every one gave those weird colours and glitches. The only disk that worked was the IPF. Not only that but i think it needed a very specific setup too, stock A500 on 1.3ks with 512kb fastram added (maybe slowram) or something along those lines. I played it for about half hour, its quite unique, odd gameplay and ultimately did think it was worth keeping.

Try the IPF SPS version, if you still can't get it to load right gimme a shout and i'll see if i can figure out the config again.

edit// Oh, i see you posted again, already sussed out the IPF works

A quick question. Can we just replace the WinUAE exe definitly or some games might fail after that ? I don't think so but you're the specialist...

For update number 50, wouldn't it be possible to have the complete package ready? Now all these updates stored in one place really take up a lot of space!

I just set my standard A500 config i.e. A500 (Cycle-exact) / ECS Agnus / KS 1.3 / 512KB Chip & 512KB Slow RAM and all worked fine

Yes you can just download WinUAE and replace WinUAE.exe.

The reason why I didn't include is due to this being an unofficial beta; and yes some games may break. Best to wait for B18 at least.
