Napalm on WinUAE
« on: June 30, 2004, 04:18:04 AM »
Anyone run Napalm on WinUAE?  For some reason,
I keep getting a read error from my Napalm
CD.  I am certain my CD is fine.  Any idea why
the emulation is having trouble with this disk?

My clickboom Quake CD also does the same thing.
The system claims there is a read/write error on the
volume.

This happens when the CD isn't mounted with uaescsi.device

Quite simply use AmiCDROM or CacheCDFS and mount it properly with uaescsi.device to fix the problem.

It has detected you are a PC user and is discriminating against you.

... and you personally!

:-D :-D :-D ;-)

Talking of Napalm, have you seen the TNT truck? That thing makes a
bang when it goes off - funny thing is there's a courier company
that has large vans with T(N)T written on the side.

Worrying!

WinUAE is already mounting CD0 and CD1 with uaescsi.device.
Do the CD drives need to be mounted like Hard Drives in
the config menu vs letting WinUAE mount them automatically?
Would this even work?  I really like winuae but good
documentation is hard to find.

Is there a CD0: icon in Devs:DosDrivers/ ?

Also, does UAE have a CDFilesystem for Workbench?

The only other thing I can think of is ClickBOOM might have had the
CDs mastered in an Amiga format disc and not ISO 9660 or whatever
Windows uses.

I doubt this is it though.

:-(

Will SnoopDos work on UAE? Maybe then you can see exactly what is
being looked for and what is failing.

The CD0 and CD1 are actually in Storage/Dosdrivers.
The startup-sequence is setup to look in that drawer
first before looking in Devs/Dosdriver.  I have copied
CD0 and CD1 to Devs/dosdrivers just to see if it made
a difference.  I can actually open the clickboom CDs,
and see the contents, but trying to run or open from the
contents of the CD brings up the requestor stating that
the volume has a read/write error.

Billchase, don't mount them as harddrives in WinUAE's harddrives tab.

You need to do it like on a real amiga, with C:Mount (or double clicking on the DOSDriver).

If you've already done that, then the problem is MaxTransfer. Edit the CD0 file and change MaxTransfer to 0x1000000

If MaxTransfer isn't in the file, then add it! Then reboot.

If you still have problems, change it to a smaller number.

[Edit] Number is in hex, not dec. Use a decimal to hex converter. 0x1000000 is 16777216 bytes
[Edit2] If 0x1000000 doesn't work, just remove a 0
[Edit3] Yes, remove a 0, 0x100000 is the number to use. Five zeros ;)

Have fun!

I have run the Napalm Demo on WinIUAE.
Maybe you need to make n ISO of the CD, mount it with Daemon Tools on your PC, set up the emulated Daemon cd drive on WinUAE and play it like that.

If you really are stuck, try eab.abime.net.
That's a great forum to learn about game problems.
