@thevoice I see, thanks for the information. It's not blocking me as I can make my own config, but hopefully Frode will find some time to fix it for everyone.

@Nolendil hi, unfortunately i cant do that. i am able to approve changes and stuff like that but when it comes to change things like this or add entriley new titles, this power is exclusive to @frode.

@thevoice Could you edit the file_list field and remove the files I listed in the comment below (i.e. all the files starting with EOBDATA)? I don't think I have the permissions to edit that myself.

The same issue happen on EoB 2 AGA.

Here are links to all the affected variants:

  • EoB 1 AGA:
  • EoB 1 AGA DE:
  • EoB 2 AGA:
  • EoB 2 AGA DE:

Variants "WHDLoad, Map, v1.09, AGA" and "WHDLoad, Map, v1.09, DE, AGA" reference save data that are specific to the user who created them. So the detection won't work.

The files are:

  • "DH0/EOB1-AGA-MAP/data-vga/EOBDATA.MSK"
  • "DH0/EOB1-AGA-MAP/data-vga/EOBDATA.SAV"
  • "DH0/EOB1-AGA-MAP/data-vga/EOBDATA.SAV-"
  • "DH0/EOB1-AGA-MAP/data-vga/EOBDATA.SAV—"
  • "DH0/EOB1-AGA-MAP/data-vga/EOBDATA.SAV—-"
  • "DH0/EOB1-AGA-MAP/data-vga/EOBDATA.SAV-L1"
  • "DH0/EOB1-AGA-MAP/data-vga/EOBDATA.SAV-bj"
  • "DH0/EOB1-AGA-MAP/data-vga/EOBDATA.SAV-l1-end"
  • "DH0/EOB1-AGA-MAP/data-vga/EOBDATA.SAV-l2"
  • "DH0/EOB1-AGA-MAP/data-vga/EOBDATA.SAV-l2bug"
  • "DH0/EOB1-AGA-MAP/data-vga/EOBDATA.SAV-l3"
  • "DH0/EOB1-AGA-MAP/data-vga/EOBDATA.SAV-l4"
  • "DH0/EOB1-AGA-MAP/data-vga/EOBDATA.SAV-l5"
  • "DH0/EOB1-AGA-MAP/data-vga/EOBDATA.SAV-l6"
  • "DH0/EOB1-AGA-MAP/data-vga/EOBDATA.SAV-l7"
  • "DH0/EOB1-AGA-MAP/data-vga/EOBDATA.SAV-lendtest"

It seems that I can't edit the file_list field so I can't fix it. See also EoB II AGA for the same issue.

Any updates meanwhile?

I still can't play the WHDLoad-AGA-Versions of EOB1 & EOB2 in German!?

TODO: @FrodeSolheim

Acording to sjuks post. Can you please add some kind of overlay files (if this is possible somehow) to support all languages for both EOB AGA versions?

You have to manually create/edit the EOB.language+EOB2.language files with an Editor, e.g a plain DE entry for German. More infos are in the readme files of the games.

I added "languages: en, de, fr, it" because the game does always start in english language. The content "DE" of file data-vga/languages/EOB1.language does not lead to the german language version. I had to start the game with a user defined configuration. I hope with the added languages key I can start the german version.

It did not work. Game does always start in english language. Am I missing something?

@Neil79 EOB AGA 1.09 is now also automatically recognized by the database smiley (variant name WHDLoad, Map, v1.09, AGA)

Thanks to Goingdown, here's how to get EOB AGA 1.09 working with full automapping via FS-UAE Launcher

Download LHA file ( ) Create folder EOB1 and extract the archive inside of this folder Compress (zip) the whole EOB1 folder to zip file

  • repacking is necessary because launcher seems to expect to have the whdload files to be in subfolder inside archive

Create new configuration to FS-UAE launcher: * Amiga 1200/68020 ( Accurate ) * Chip Ram 2MB / Fast Ram 8MB * select file as hard disk * put this in WHDload Arguments EOB-AGA.Slave preload data=data-vga Cache PreloadSize=3881406

Save Configuration, Load Game!
