Amiga Forever12
« on: December 08, 2011, 04:48:52 PM »
Can anyone explain how to get "Old" HDF images across into the mew AF 12 format. It appears that you have run things using RP9. Getting programs into RP9 is not as simple as everyone makes out. I have been using AF9 wich is quite simple in that you can add drives HDF copies of drives simply by adding them through the drop down menu. Where can I find simple instructions on how to use RP9?

Thanks

I am still finding AF 12 a pain in the neck, maybe it's because I have the value version.
'Commodore is Awesome' have been gradually converting their library to RP9, tho so, if it helps at all, you can get their library up to 'E' in RP9.
If i get something behaving before you do, i'll hit you back.
Thinking you know why you behave as you do gives you all sorts of excuses for extraordinary behavior.:crazy:

Which one are you wanting to use? I am working on some more RP9 stuff atm. I am sure some of the other guys would be willing to help too. :)

The simple answer is that you can just drag and drop the HDF over the Media tab of the editor. So the first step is to create a new title (select File/New or copy an existing one), then go to the Media tab and add the HDF.

If the HDF is not bootable, a number of bootable drives are just one click away in the same tab.

Feel free to let me know what you don't understand, and we can work from there.

Gotta say, Mcb, I'm curious how and anxious to get the most out of AF12 can I jump in on that offer to A3000 also?

Sure, a better understanding of where the rough spots are helps improve the software design too.

Thanks, dude.
It's nice to know I got some backup in my rediscovery of Amiga gaming.
Also, to have an AF12 thread on this forum makes sense, certainly for me.
Until I can get an X1000, my emu' is my Amiga fix. :)

Right...to business

Dragging WHD's, btw, onto the main player of AF12 no longer seems to work to get a WHD to load on AF. Which is a pain when trying to use a CD32 game.
I have the Plus edition, so i have all the ROMs.
It's a great WinUae interface, but I've only had it a couple of weeks so some of my old faves and missed wonders elude m
Again, thanks.

edit.
Oh, HDF...is that the old equivalent of WHD?
I am so noob to this.
Hope you don't find me to be hijacking your thread a3000:)

After extensive mucking around with AF12 i found a theme, it tends to be newer games that have trouble.
They'll run the 'crack screen' but then go on to reboot kickstart, guru software failure or just hang with a blank, coloured or striped screen.
As there is this theme re:compatibility, I think I am doing something wrong rather than it being down to individual ADF's and RP9's.

I've tweaked with the ROM settings for the systems and memory allocation.
Still it dislikes later games...the ones from my era...d'oh.

Any pointers would be invaluable, thx. :)

I've found, through a little helpful advice here and there, that's it's seemingly better to just use WinUAE once you have the ROM's.
SPEEDBALL GO!!! XD

You mean dragging HDFs (not "WHD")? You can right-click an HDF and select Open, or drag and drop an HDF over the configuration editor. I don't think it ever played an HDF via drag and drop.

HDFs are still current and recommended to create fast standalone game configurations. By "WHD" maybe you mean "WHDLoad"? That's a nice technology, and works inside the Amiga, independently of the media format (it will work from ADF, HDF, mounted directory, etc.)
