I have excellent news !!!
« on: April 21, 2019, 11:49:10 PM »
A long time ago I tried installing microprose's pirates (original disks) into my hd, but the installation failed.
Recently I tried playing pirates on my pc under winUAE emulation, the game worked but I could not save
my game. I tried creating the floppy on winuae but it did not work. I did get the blank disk file from aminet
as suggested here, but I still did not try it. But something amazing happened. i tried to install the pirates
disks (original copies) again, one more time into my amiga 2000 HD, and to my surprise, the installation
worked !!!Now the game is installed into the hd, and everything works and I can save my game. Instead
of playing on emulation, I can now play on my amiga 2000. I am very happy. I found out why the installation
failed before. Last time, when installing from the disks, the requester asked me for the directory to install the game
to, and I wrote 'DH0:Pirates' and did not work. This time, when asked, I typed in 'Workbench:Pirates' and VOILA
everything worked and now I can play the game.
I am so, so happy.
Thank you all for helping me !!!
