Re: Installing games to HD and boot them with ADFFS

Probably worth updating the earlier posts in this thread with the "correct" way. There is no one "correct" way to get a game to run on HD. The general rule of thumb is: Look in the boot script for instructions For Single disc games, mount and boot the floppy (unless you want to try and preserve hig...

Re: Installing games to HD and boot them with ADFFS

Almost certainly a path issue, it's failing to find the second disc. Temporarily comment out the ADFBootFloppy in your second example, run it, drop to the command line and check ADFFS$GameDir is a fully qualified path and not using an unexpanded reference to Obey$Dir. If it looks good, ensure you ca...

Re: ADFFS 2.64 public beta

ADFFS 2.64h now available in the OP. The Time Machine disc 1 recording was missing the disc protection and you can now convert APD images to JFD by mounting and then using "Save as" to save them. The only real advantage to saving an APD as JFD is it's quicker to mount; APD's have to pass through a 1...

Re: ADFFS 2.64 public beta

ADFFS 2.64g now available in the OP. Adding support for the ROL version of ZLib caused corrupt archives to be produced, so I've rolled back the change. There's also a bug fix where the OS/CPU compatibility flags weren't being set in the JFD file.

Re: ADFFS 2.64 public beta

ADFFS 2.64f now available in the OP. Added two selectable titles to the drop down, "ADFS 800K (E)" and "ADFS 1.6M" to allow a full image of those floppy types and it now works on ROL RISC OS versions that have an inbuilt version of ZLib.

Re: ADFFS 2.64 public beta

ADFFS 2.64e now available in the OP. I've added error detection to JFD imaging and fixed a few more issues. This build contains an experimental low vector version for folk running such versions of RISC OS 5. This has undergone no testing and is unsupported, some games that work under high vector wil...

Re: Running ADFs

Only JFD's can be booted, which contain metadata. You could try manually running the boot script for the game in question, they're contained in !ADFFS.Obey

Re: ADFFS 2.64 public beta

ADFFS 2.64d now available in the OP. Various bug fixes to the JFD imaging process and I've added a field to override the floppy size auto detection. You can now Flush and save mounted JFD files from the ADFFS Filer, should their contents change. Note that it doesn't currently Auto flush (ie auto sav...

Re: ADFFS 2.64 public beta

ADFFS 2.64c now available in the OP, which includes the GUI for imaging JFD files. There's little in the way of error checking at the moment, so ensure the output JFD file is dragged to a folder and its either automatically selected a recording file, or you've manually dragged one you've previously ...

Re: ADFFS 2.64 public beta

I guess this is for people with floppy drives who want to do their own disk images Indeed. Developing a GUI for floppy imaging and adding the ability to image as ADF has been outstanding for a very long time (over 6 years :oops:), so I thought I'd make a start on it as a New Years resolution. The n...
