ADFFS - multiple disks

Post by regin » Tue Nov 26, 2013 11:18 pm

Hi,

I've been playing with ADFFS on an ArcEm emulator on the Pi, but am also going to get around to wiring up an old Arc and playing games as they should be played. The floppy on the Arc doesn''t work though so I'll have to transfer disk images using an SD card and IDE.

I just wondered what the best way would be to handle a multi-disk game if I'm using images? ADFFS works great until the game asks for disk 2 - then I have no idea what to do!

Thanks for any help.

Just name the files so they end with the disc number and then use CTRL-SHIFT-F1 / F2 / F3 etc

For example, name the disc image files as:

Game1
Game2

CTRL-SHIFT-F1 will mount Game1, CTRL-SHIFT-F2 will mount Game2
