RuninUAE - Ran a game from USB, now it's screwed!
« on: November 09, 2014, 09:32:55 AM »
Hi folks,

I've made this mistake before & not using my A1 very often...I forgot & did it again.

Last time the only fix I could figure out was to get rid of RuninUAE & re-eninstall, but there must be a simpler way...
 
Basically, I ran a game from a USB flash drive & now every time I run a game on my HDD it asks for the flash drive & I have to assign the HDD partition the game is on (happens with every game every time, even after assigning the last time with the same game).

It's infuriating & I'm sure there is an easy fix, I just can't figure it out.

Can someone please help me here?

PZ.

So I just replaced the entire "Emulation" folder from a backup before this problem & it's still asking for the USB drive when I run an adf...WTF?!?!

Now reinstalled files to boot partition from the backup & it's still happening.

Time to burn an Amiga in spectacular fashion!!!!

Maybe it creates an ENV variable?
A4000T, 604e@400&060@66, 128MB+16MB+Zorram256, CVisionPPC, VLabMotion, Toccata, XSurf100&RapidRoad, Prisma Megamix

You should have a drawer named Env in your Ram Disk. (Assigned as Env: ). Check if there is runinuae configuration file in there that you can edit.
Note that there also is a folder sys:envarc (assigned as envarc: ) that gets copied into Ram:Env on every reboot, so if you must change something in that config file it must also be changed in the envarc drawer to be permanent.

assign it to RAM:, then run a different game from the HD.

I think that will fix it.

Thanks for the suggestions folks, however I still have the same problem.

envarc does seem to exist in OS4.1 & assigning the games to RAM doesn't resolve it either.

Thinking I'll just start with a re-install of the entire OS. But knowing a solution would be great for next time I buggerize it! LOL

Did you read these sections regarding the config files? http://cshandley.co.uk/runinuae/#6_16
Also the following section mentiones something about the choice to overwrite the configfiles when reinstalling.

Yeah, that could have been it.

Already restored from a backup & posting again from my uA1 that doesn't look for a certain USB drive when running a game :)

Will look into that the next time I mess it all up!

Cheers :D
