Amiga > ADFs > Transfers
« on: November 23, 2020, 09:40:46 PM »
Hi there guys.

I was wondering if you could answer a few questions for me please.

1. I've got a real urge to play Worms DC. and make some of my own levels in D-Paint.

Just got D-Paint running, but realised that the Worms disks are in ADF.
I beleive that the player created levels are stored on disk 2

However if they are in ADF and ADF's are image files
Q1.1: How would I be able to add my own custom levels to the disks ?

2. I Also Have Amiga Forever Premium edition
with the workbench 3.X disk. And I'm using FS-UAE to emulate my Amiga
on my Linux host machine

I'm wanting to create a full WB install, with HDD so that I can be productive, etc.

The Workbench 3.X disk is essentiually a dir contianing a large No of files

Q2.1. Is there anyway to use them as the original 6 Workbench disks, so that
I can install WB onto a HDD, and use it as an Amiga with a HDD ?

3. I have a real physical Amiga 1200, with an external floppy drive, (And a few hundred floppy disks).
I've like to buy a cable to connect my Amiga to my Linux PC, so that I can back up as many
of my floppies as possible, As the disks are getting rather old.

Q.3.1. What is the best way / and cable to achive this please ?

Apologies if some of these questions may seem a little obvious,
I was an Amiga fanatic, back in the 90's when I owned my Amiga computers
but, as I haven't been using an Amiga (real or emulated) for such a long
time, I feel like it the 1st day back at school, and I know nothing.

TIA for any help or advice.

Also if this is the wrong area, please feel free to move this post.

Did that back in the days so from memory I did this:

I think I used PPaint.
Load a picture level from the disk as a guide.
I did that and then I used a VIDI24 to grab my house and my friends.
Then I just put them left and right and set worms to spawn as teams and not random :-)
Also made my own samples and changed the pitch with AudioMaster.

Hi Vince_06
Thanks for replying

Re: Q1.1.
I loaded up WB. Loaded up the Worms DC disks.
Although they were in ADF, I was able to open up the disks and actually open drawers and
even managed to create a test text file on the disk.

So it appears that the ADFs work like a standard Amiga floppy disk
and I can add my own levels if I want to.
