Just a quick FYI. The links to WHDloader.exe seem to be dead.

try with that.

Code: [Select]

<System>
    <Name>Commodore Amiga WHD</Name>
    <AppPath>F:\emulateur\Amiga\WinUAELoader\WinUAELoader.exe</AppPath>
    <RomPath>F:\emulateur\Amiga\Jeux WHD</RomPath>
    <SnapPath>F:\emulateur\Mgalaxy\snapsemul\amiga</SnapPath>
    <VidPath />
    <Emu selected="0">
      <Cmd id="0" name="WinUAELoader" value="-mode whdload -rom &quot;%path\%file%ext&quot;" />
    </Emu>
    <Extensions>.zip</Extensions>
    <Active>True</Active>
    <Script>False</Script>
    <Database>False</Database>
  </System>

It s the easy way, yep but you need to make some configuration and find some missing files if I remember ^^ .

Hi, I'm trying the "easy" way  :D , where do i include the command?
In Systems.xml?

It works with command line so easy to include in mGalaxy. the command is

Code: [Select]
WinUAELoader.exe -mode whdload -rom "RomName.zip"

How to use WHD format in Winuae with mGalaxy.

Explanations and links here > http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/WHDLoad

Easy way
Simply use the Winuaeloader > http://headsoft.com.au/index.php?category=winuaeloader
It works with command line so easy to include in mGalaxy. the command is

Code: [Select]
WinUAELoader.exe -mode whdload -rom "RomName.zip"
Or you can use the apllication "whdrun.exe" (include in the previous application), only this one is usefull.

Hard Way

This method is a little complicated but you can control all the system with it.

Unzip this archive in WinUAE directory >    http://www.multiupload.nl/Z5OWMPBHG3

If you want to skip the waiting time, buy or find a license and put the WHDLoad.key file ine the WinUAE\WHD_loader\WHD\S directory

Check the configuration file WHDLoader.uae with your path
Code: [Select]
filesystem2=rw,DH0:DH0:.\WHD_loader\WHD,0
uaehf0=dir,rw,DH0:DH0:.\WHD_loader\WHD,0
filesystem2=rw,DH1:DH1:F:\emulateur\Amiga\WinUAE\WHD_loader\tmp\,0
uaehf1=dir,rw,DH1:DH1:F:\emulateur\Amiga\WinUAE\WHD_loader\tmp\,0
I use relative path for HD0 and absolute for HD1, so normaly you don't need to change something because the script modify HD1 path itself.

The script, you can call it like you want but not mGalaxy_Script.au3, it s a loader not a script for mGalaxy.

Code: (autoit) [Select]
#include <array.au3>
#include <File.au3>

local $fichier = $CmdLineRaw
;clen name
$fichier= StringTrimRight( $fichier, 1 )
$fichier= StringTrimleft( $fichier, 1 )

local $tmp = @ScriptDir & '\WHD_loader\tmp\'
local $app = @ScriptDir & '\winuae.exe'
local $config = @ScriptDir & '\WHD_loader\WHDLoader.uae'

;delete previous archives
DirRemove(@scriptdir & "\WHD_loader\tmp\",1)
DirCreate(@scriptdir & "\WHD_loader\tmp\")

;unzip archive
_Zip_UnzipAll($fichier,$tmp)

;we get the name of the game
Local $search = FileFindFirstFile($tmp & '*.info')
If $search = -1 Then exit 0
Local $file = FileFindNextFile($search)
$file = StringTrimRight( $file, 5 )
FileClose($search)

;file modification
Local $file2 = FileOpen(@ScriptDir & '\WHD_loader\WHD\S\user-startup',2)
If $file2 = -1 Then exit 0
   
FileWriteLine($file2, 'echo "";')
FileWriteLine($file2, 'echo "WHD loader";')
FileWriteLine($file2, 'echo "Running: ' & $file & '.Slave";')
FileWriteLine($file2, 'echo "";')
FileWriteLine($file2, 'echo "Remember to use the quit key instead of closing WinUAE!";')
FileWriteLine($file2, 'echo "";')
FileWriteLine($file2, 'cd dh1:' & $file & ';')
FileWriteLine($file2, 'whdload ' & $file & '.Slave PRELOAD;')
FileClose($file2)

;configuration modification
local $aLines
_FileReadToArray($config, $aLines)
for $i = 0 To $aLines[0]
   If StringInStr($aLines[$i], "filesystem2=rw,DH1") Then
         _FileWriteToLine($config, $i ,"filesystem2=rw,DH1:DH1:" & $tmp & ",0", 1)
   EndIf
   If StringInStr($aLines[$i], "uaehf1=dir,rw,DH1:") Then
         _FileWriteToLine($config, $i ,"uaehf1=dir,rw,DH1:DH1:" & $tmp & ",0", 1)
   EndIf
Next

Runwait('"' & $app & '" -config="' & $config )

exit 0
