And like Speelgoedmannetje said: Amiga is not a console (and WinUAE is not a console emulator). If you want to do more with it than just load ADF files to play games then better read some manuals and learn about the Amiga. Or buy a Nintendo.

I guess he/she's someone who used a plain Amiga 500 back in the day, only as a gamecomputer.
I can imagine that having to figure how everything works is kinda frustrating. Remember, when ppl are agressive in this way, they just need help :-)

To the original poster:
I don't really understand all this aggression towards software packed with LHA. Remember that most software on Aminet has been there for many many years, since way before ADFs existed. Do you expect all the authors to go back and re-upload their software in ADF format just for the benefit of people who can't be bothered to work out how LHA files work? :roll:

Plus, I don't think Aminet will even accept ADF's as they're a lot harder to test for viruses and stuff.

Well i have tried to get this file to open...

in WB is says it has no default tool....

saw somewhere using a command line might work - all to no avail in CLI

so if i have WB & Extras how can this work (in winuae)
and i have heard about hard drive emulation - can and how can this work? - indeed i am used to having the A500 and bootable stuff -well at least via WB!

like someone sain in this thread said it is fustrating trying to work all this out

but once i know how and see it go, this wont be an issue

@DeviceNet

There's no need to be angrified. Especially when it makes your verbs disappear.

You might as well be asking "why .zip instead of .iso".

yes, you can. just format+install a diskette with suitable filesystem depending on your configuration, copy correct libs and you're off..
ADF sucks, DMS rulez :-P
 
Better sorry than worry.

You can. First, unlha something, then put it on a disk, then adf it. Neat, huh? Seems a waste of effort, though. Guess how long it takes to find an unlha'er? Like 2 minutes.

sounds easy....

too easy

i used winrar -which unpacked the files

from that to adf, would it be bootable - letalone the issue of pc drive to amiga drive issues

if what you say is true, i should be able to bang a disk on a pc and copy the extracted files to a disk, somehow which is auto booting

I dont know understand what you are trying to do with this LHA.
Do you want it as an ADF to run on WINUAE or do you want it on a floppy disk to run on a real amiga.

If its the Amiga option what is your amiga setup

ie do you have a harddrive is it 500 600 or 1200 or other

Wow reading this back and I realise Im drunk Woopee for friday night
