New to Whdload what's The crack?
« on: January 07, 2013, 09:56:04 PM »
After buying and fixing a non working a1200 I thought I'd get whdload so I replaced the roms to 3.1 and fitted a 8meg ram board so I could run it then I bought the 4 meg cf card which had whdload with games pre installed.

Now I thought you bought the cf card and that would be that (bit like mame) but when I load games up it says not registered!! Now I'm new to the scene and hoped you guys could explain what and how to work whdload.

Thanks in advance

What it seems you have basically bought, is a compact flash card, with an unregistered version of WHDLoad, and pirated games... :p

You can register WHDLoad, costs about $25 from memory?

I just assumed it was just like mame, so if I was to register can I then use the games on the cf card or would I have to download new?  

Sorry about the really silly questions

I thought it was like $15. It is still being developed....

You'll just copy the key file to devs: and the nag screen will go away :) no re install of anything.

I think that where it goes anyway... it will come with instructions.

One of the best pieces of software I bought, and cheap too.
Still being developed, remember, it wouldn't have been possible if people didn't bought it. Coded in 68k assembler:)

The games it came with should already work, but you'll have to wait about 20 seconds on the "Unregistered" screen, this screen obviously doesn't appear in the registered version.

What happens when you try to run the games it came with?

Before the game loads a screen pops up saying unregistered then some load and play fine others all that happens is I get a demo of the intro but nothing else and some won't load at all it just says that it needs to be registered.

The demo at the beginning is normaly of the cracked games like skidrow etc...if you left click the mouse it usually gets the game going.

Some games do require a registered WHDLoad (a keyfile). For instance, the game Fears for AGA Amiga's requires a key to work. Lotus Espirt Turbo Challange works without the key, but you'll be racing against yourself! (no other cars on the track...until you have a keyfile that is)!
Most games work fully without the key, but you do get the annoying start delay, so I'd recommend registering. :)

@ Soniq561

my advice is to register WHDload because it's a great piece of software and also to support the guys behind it.  We amigans should support Amiga developers whenever we can.

Registered Whdload long time ago. Money well spent! It's running countless games in my Amiga 1200 and Minimig computers :)

YEs I'm a registered WHDload user too. Here are some reasons to reg

1. Supports the devs who spent countless hours on this for us

2. It seems to make games more compatible as stated earlier

3. No wait screen games load right away

4. Whdload seems more stable with reg key for some reason...
