A script will start UAE and pass the selected game along to UAE which will then get started by WHDLoad.
Thank you for your scripts. So, where is a script which starts UAE?
I modified CallWHD.dos a bit so when a slave is started from Ambient - it starts e-uae and sends commands to it via arexx.
Path is the same in MorphOS as in the emulated AmigaOS. Mounted Games partition.
echo "param1: <folder>"
echo "param2: <slavename>"
Run >NIL: SYS:Tools/e-uae/e-uae -f SYS:Tools/e-uae/Conf/A1200_WHDload.conf
Wait 13 ;estimated boot time, meh
RXcmd UAE "uaeexe Cd <folder>"
RXcmd UAE "uaeexe WHDLoad PRELOAD <slavename>"
I forgot to mention that my scripts assume a correctly configured UAELoad setup with a VM that has WHDLoad installed.
The C:WHDLoad script which gets called in CallWHD.dos starts UAE using UAELoad.
But your approach is good as well. Maybe even better as it doesn't require UAELoad.
