Is this game HD installable? Way do you package your games in ADFs?

@NutsAboutAmiga

Yes it is but you need your partitions to be named DH0, DH1....... Not HD0 which was used when I bought my A4k.

Sounds like the games that only install from DF0 or DF1. Shouldn't matter. A new game that already needs a WHDLoad hack? What is the Amiga gaming world coming too? Some recent games can only run off floppy as well. Shame when the concentration is on how to run the game and not play it.

@hotrod

DH0, DH1 is standard on AmigaOS, some people like name the partitions HD0, DH1, but anyway it should possible to just copy files or pick location to install the game, if have written a installer.

@NutsAboutAmiga

I just wrote what I read in the readme, considering that I read it correctly. Yes DH0 are standard, don't know why the HD in my a4k was named HD0, I thought that Commodore changed it?

Anyhow, the readme tells you how and it isn't hard at all but sure, an installer is always nice.

I wasn't correct so from the readme

To install the game to your hard drive,
simply make a directory with suitable
file copying software etc. Then copy
ALL the files and data from the game
disk(s) into this directory.

However, to enable the game to find all
the actual data when required, the
directory name or path MUST be one of
the following...

dh0:Wiz
dh0:Games/Wiz

dh1:Wiz
dh1:Games/Wiz

dh2:Wiz
dh2:Games/Wiz

Your hard drive's ID may be hd0: or th1:
etc. this is OK, but anything after this
must match one of the above paths.

The game always checks to see if it can
find data and files in any of the above
locations first, before finally attempting
to load from the floppy drive df0:

Once the entire contents of both disks
have been copied to one of the above
named directories on your hard drive,
the game may be started in future plays
by typing...

Wiz

So it tries to look for files in different locations, I know its written in BlitzBasic so Im going to give it some slack, but way solve with is find current directory, this has to be done in two ways, it differs from CLI program to WB program, dos.library provides a function to get name from a file lock. While if its WB program you lock from wb_arg message, or something like that.
