    increased chip mem to 1024kb to cover the additional floppy drives. with just 512kb chip the game drops back to wb after the intro.

    Abduction   Amiga   2017-03-25 11:42:41 by thevoice

    @abuehler: technically its like this. whenever whdload website adds an updated slave for title x, i just copy & paste the There is a new WHDload variant available. to the variant notice of the variant. this way frode will notice there is a newer slave around while approving the vaiant_notice and can import the new slave once he have time smiley.

    Indeed free time is a luxury and I fully understand this therefore a big thank you for the time spent to keep things up2date.

    @Frode: unfortunately not... the update is still not visible as of today. D/Generation has been updated but not Gobliiins.

    @thevoice: you mentioned variant notice for changed slaves. How does this work? I couldn't figure this out yet for the case that I stumble upon updates.

    Space Harrier: Return to the Fantasy Zone   Amiga   2017-02-19 20:41:31 by abuehler

    Newest WHD is v1.3 and FS-UAE mentioned it in the status bar but this variant is not yet listed

    Gobliiins   Amiga   2017-02-19 07:32:00 by thevoice

    I usually check for new WHDLoad installs during the weekend and mark updated ones via the variant notice to give Frode a hint there is changed slaves. sometimes it takes a bit until the appear (free time is a luxury wink). But i personally think having a message for a few days is better then lagging behind with actual slaves for months or even longer xD.

    D/Generation   Amiga   2017-02-18 13:45:53 by FrodeSolheim

    It seems that @thevoice did an update on particular WHD sets of Gobliiins, D/Generation & more. Now Launcher is stating that a newer version of the WHD game exits (which is true) but in the selection drop down the new version is not listed. Maybe something has been entered wrong regarding the new WHD package/versions.

    Street Rod 2   Amiga   2017-02-07 23:31:49 by levellord

    Yea, I agree, no worries. Regarding custom covers, I am glad you like them and the game entries looks more colourfull, not just sad, gray rectangle instead.

    Street Rod 2   Amiga   2017-02-07 17:14:57 by FrodeSolheim

    @levellord I rejected the IBM PC back cover edit to look like an Amiga cover. Even though is not an encyclopedia, I think it's best that people don't (easily) mistake covers for authentic. So, I think it would actually be better that the cover simply said IBM PC in this case. I don't feel that all game entries need a back cover, so if an authentic back cover cannot be found, it can safely be left out.

    While speaking about covers, thank you very much for your effort in creating custom covers for game entries with missing front covers smiley

    T-ZerO   Amiga   2017-01-29 22:12:12 by FrodeSolheim

    @thevoice Yes, the Launcher is actually a bit "clever" about this. If more than 8 MB fast RAM is added, the Launcher automatically selects a full 32-bit CPU (e.g. 68020 instead of the default 68ec020) and uses Zorro III fast RAM.

    The game requires a lot of fastmem for preload. - 1.8 MB ChipMem and 3 MB OtherMem (+34 MB OtherMem for preload option) as the whdload readme says. i have set fastmem to 40960kb idk if this is correct as i couldnt find a z3_fastmem entry on the web frontend. anyway with just 8mb fastmem the animation sequences stutter hardcore.

    Space Harrier II   Amiga   2017-01-21 11:14:55 by FrodeSolheim

    @levellord If the variant is not found on your system, the most likely explanation is one of:

    • You have the disk, but it has been modified (savegame or similar)
    • You have a disk with the same name, but it isn't exactly the same disk. Perhaps the TOSEC set has renamed the files at some point.

    The launcher looks for disks by checking the contents on the file (calculating the checksum). For this variant, a disk with the following SHA-1 checksum is needed:
