Non-dos adf images to WHDLoad install?
« on: April 12, 2022, 11:47:32 AM »
Hello. This has probably been covered somewhere before, though my searches are only coming up with ADF explainers for standard Dos games etc. Most of my favourite Amiga memories are in the crack-intros for games (especially on the music front), and these typically have non-standard bootloaders etc. I have some of these adf's but don't know how to make them do anything on my A1200. If you could please help with useful information, that would be much appreciated!
Thanks =)

You can start by turning off caches via the early startup menu. You can get there by holding down both mouse buttons while powering on or rebooting.

As a rule, WHDLoad installers do not work with warez versions of games.

Hi- I'm not sure how the cache suggestion helps?

Is there a way to convert adf to an actual floppy disk maybe?
Thanks =)

there is a piece of software on aminet called TSGUI this allows you to convert .adf files to floppy. It also allows you to create .adf files from floppy disks also, no idea how you would get this onto your workbench unless you have a usb port or card reader on you amiga.
