Firstly – awesome work. Thanks to fs-uae I’ve been able to play SWOS with updated teams via the WHDLoad feature this evening. I have one question regarding the OSX version: is it possible to set the launcher to boot straight in to a particular WHDLoad image/configuration?

Q: What are the differences between Cloanto's 3.1 Workbench disks as used in Amiga. Feb 21, 2015 - Unlike all other Amigas, the Amiga 1000 does not have a kickstart ROM included on the motherboard. Instead, the kickstart is loaded from disk on each power on. There were Kickstart disks for v1.1, v1.2 and v1.3, with a few rare and older variants as well. For now, the v1.1 Kickstart disk included does boot.
The reason I ask is I have an old Mac mini hooked up to a tv that is controlled entirely through remote buddy/remote control, for running Plex/XBMC etc. Little Fighter 1 Game. I’d like to be able to launch say SWOS or Speedball 2 via the remote without having to resort to screen sharing to configure the launcher/select a configuration.
I downloaded a full WHDLoad games pack (pre HDD installed) and zipped some of those folders. I Opened that zip file as a hard drive and FS-UAE automatically named it “alienbreed2.slave”etc. But the games did not load up. It stopped at the Amiga Dos window, showing “Unknown Command IF”. Do I really need to install that program and register it, for WHDLoad games to work properly within the FS-UAE? Maybe you should make your own FS-UAE/WHDLoad variant, which will automatically load those pre installed games? That would be a great improvement in FS-UAE development.
I seem to have a small problem with WHDLoad games. I have my zipped files containing my old installed games, dropped my WHDLoad key into FS-UAE & entered the slave name. Files are downloaded as expected, the OS boots & my WHDLoad splash screen pops up.
This confirms my registered key. From here, if a slave needs the Devs: kickstart images, it complains: Shell tells me it cannot find SetPatch & after this, I get a requested stating that it cannot find the Devs: kickstart files. I have them myself & FS-Launcher also downloads them fine, but some games aren’t loading because of this. My first game tested was Another World. Do you have any ideas what might be happening? Thanks, Russ. The Launcher only downloads some RTB files for the kickstarts (files with additional information about the kickstarts).
FS-UAE Launcher will also copy the correct kickstarts, but this requires that you have those kickstarts indexed in the FS-UAE Launcher file database. So if you use “Scan Files & Configurations” from the database, you should have a green checkbox for A500 at least. I cannot distribute the kickstart files, so the Launcher cannot automatically download those. SetPatch will be copied in if you have a Workbench 3.0 disk indexed. I cannot distribute copyrighted Workbench files.
This file is not always required, and the boot process will continue without it. Arma 2 Takistan Life Mod. Thanks for the quick reply. I need to make sure I understand this correct.
In my ‘Scan Files & Configuration’, I add the folder with my kickstart files (eg. Kickstarts/kick34005.a500 & kick40068.a1200) & also add the folder with my Workbench 3.0 disk (adf) then click scan?
If this is correct, I do not have anymore ‘green’ ticks & I still cannot get the WHD zipped game to load. However, if I create a hard drive with the files in the same drive as the game & boot from that (Not using the WHDSlave command in Launcher), the game reads the kickstart files & loads without a problem. I’m sure this will be a simple solution but I just can’t get my head round it. The most likely explanation is that you don’t have the preferred kickstart versions.
You might have a 1.3 kickstart ROM file, but not exactly the same as the Launcher expects. One reason that the Launcher is a bit picky about this is because of the net play support. As you run the kickstart import function, you can see the SHA-1 checksums listed there. For example, the a500 one should be 891e9a547772fe0c6c19b610baf8bc4ea7fcb785, commonly known as “Kickstart v1.3 r34.5 (1987)(Commodore)(A500-A1000-A2000-CDTV)[!].rom” – or “amiga-os-130.rom” from Amiga Forever. The WHDLoad binaries are downloaded on demand from the Internet (to ensure everyone has the same version – for example for net play compatibility).
