I love this program, one of the best registrations I ever done.

I remember a good while back, people asking for an OS4 version. The natural answer was that it would never become an emulator. I have another thought, would it be possible for WHDLoad to automatically create a virtual drive for use with a UAE executable (Maybe defined in the games icon) therefore making it launchable from OS4.

I have done this manually for some of my games & I seem to remember a program that does this on OS4Depot but I think it'd be nice if WHDLoad could do it eliminating the need for external programs or scripts.

But enough of my babble, thanks for the continued support.

FuZion.

Great work!

Fuzion: THey are working on the Classic. If you want to run the whdload games from Uae, no problem. Just set up a workbench and install as normal.

This would have to be made with scripts etc..

@pavlor

Yes but remember to read the comment section for “WHDLOAD to UAE”, one tiny bug in the startup-sequence script.

And remember the program does not magically support all new arguments of the AmigaOS3.x program.

Well I wrote the “WHDLOAD to UAE” program, and worked for me, well I have read the readme for nIdeaOS4plusUAE and think it interesting concept drag and drop, I do how ever have quite a few tricks for UAE, for exsample the “ADF to UAE” program, and “PPMORE to UAE” program and so on, well thats how I do it, no need for drag and drop, AmigaOS4.x finds the command and executes as it does under OS3.x, whit tiny difference it starts UAE first.

Thanks guys for the links. My main idea was to see if there was any chance of having something built into WHD therefore removing the need for external scripts & programs (Apart from UAE of course).

But thanks again for the links. I'll give em a blast.
