    Re: HOWTO: play amiga games with E-UAE emulator

    Hey phallab

    Well the basic steps to use the amiga app. WHDload files are:

    1)Install a WorkBench to HD
    2)Install WHDload in the Workbench
    3)Run the game inside the workbench

    Found a great howto for uae, will try it out later and let you know how it goes:

    Stay loose!

    Re: Playing amiga harddisk games through AIAB and whdload

    So you gotten hold of a .hdf file for a game but who you gonna call. Well if the line at ghostbusters is busy, you might wanna try this little howto. Worked great for me.

    AIAB is a ready compiled workbench with a tons of features, including the - for this use - essential 'whdload' which is an amigaOS app that allows you to play converted floppy .hdf files directly from the workbench.

    So listen up and stay sharp guys!

    1) get AIAB here: http://aiab.emuunlim.com/r10.5/
    2) extract it to fx /home/<username>/uae/aiab
    3) copy a 3.1 kickrom to /home/<username>/uae/aiab/Roms and name it kick.rom
    4) create this dir /home/<username>/uae/conf
    5) and create a file called aiab.conf containing this setup. Search and replace 'rune' with your own username
    Code:
    config_description=E-UAE and AIAB configuration
    config_version=0.8.25
    unix.rom_path=./

    6) Get your harddisk file fx: Walker.lzx
    7) install unlzx with apt-get install unlzx (you need the morgoth repository in your sources.list)
    7) unlzx to /home/<username>/uae/aiab/Harddrives/HD-Games/
    8) chmod -R 777 /home/<username>/uae/aiab
    9) cd to /home/<username>/uae/conf
    10) run uae -f aiab.conf
    11) follow instructions and insert workbench 3.1 disk 2 when asked for it
    12) select your resolution and press save
    13) AIAB should now boot
    14) Right click desktop and select 'Shell Promt'
    15) DH2:
    16) Cd to where the Walker.Slave file is located
    17) whdload Walker.Slave

    And lo and behold... the game is starting. If anyone tries this howto, let me know.

    Take care!

    Re: HOWTO: play amiga games with E-UAE emulator

    I have a bought copy of 1.3, 2.0, 3.0, 3.1, and 3.9. My amiga still works. In fact my rom image is from the amiga. I just need to know if you can install the AmigaOs in a directory on the harddrive and how to set up the cdrom to work with uae. Or do you have to use disk files.

    AIAB has some support for cdrom. What do you want to accomplish?

    Re: HOWTO: play amiga games with E-UAE emulator

    I had the sound stuttering problem. Playing around with frequency and buffer size values didn't solve it, so I decided to try the newest version, as suggested by rune_kg, compiling it myself. Well, it works flawlessly! Excellent emulator, and it's getting close to WinUAE (which unfortunately is still the best version).

    So if you have sound stuttering problem, give the newest release a try, or wait for the version in the repositories to be updated. It's worth your time in any case.

    Hey Malcolm

    Good to know, will try it soon, but as I don't have any problems with the current debian package im not in a hurry. Yeah and I too thinks it's closing in on WinUAE, what we need most now is a better gui and easy keymapping.

    Ciao

    I just wondering on how to get it setup under Ubuntu. I have it running under windows but like to get it installed under Ubuntu. Do you have to use disk files or can you install it in a directory on the harddrive?

    Hey mafutha

    Well its possible to have e-uae access an actual physical cd-rom drive, using the scsi=true setting and the uaescsi.device. Never tried this though. But you apparently want to have access from inside the emulated amigaOS to an emulated cd-rom drive thats placed somewhere on your hdd? This should be possible with something like this in your config file:
    Code:
    filesystem=ro,CD0:/home/username/uae/cdrom
    I haven't tried that either.

    C YA

    Regarding the sound issue, I had the same problem while playing my favourite Addam's Family. I tried different sound settings but nothing worked. Then I went to CPU -> Emulation Speed and set it to 'Maximum" and the sound was fixed.
