This package of scripts is freeware.

Rest in peace my grandfather.

Scripts will automatically configure WHDLoad games for E-UAE on Non-Chipset

WHDLoad is an harddisk installer system for trackloading Amiga games. WHDLoad
work natively on NonChipset Amiga platforms (like Amithlon) but will work
nicely within E-UAE.

Being influenced by "glUAE" scripts for OS4.0, I decided to compile some scripts
will run WHDLoad games by directly clicking their icons from my native Workbench
on Amithlon. This is how E-UAELoad project began.

 * User friendly harddisk installer "Install E-UAELoad"
 * A one-for-all script that automatically makes the neccessary changes on
   packages to work with E-UAE. "InstallGame"
 * A script that will configure your Chipset Applications to work with
   "InstallApp" (NEW in 1.3)
 * Detects required chipset (configures E-UAE for AGA chipset if the game needs
 * Centers the E-UAE window on screen.
 * To quit simply close the game window or press Ctrl+rAlt+q
 * Every game or app. can have its own E-UAE configuration. (Read

 * No error tracking or reporting
    Scripts are a little more intelligent now. But they are more quiet. You
still have 
    no way to trace errors. So use the scripts as they are ment to be used. (For
    don't try to install an application with InstallGame. You will loose your

 * Tooltypes of the WhdLoad game icons are ignored. (Read topic:"Specials")

    AmigaOS 3.x (practically 3.9 on Amithlon)
    An E-UAE version (0.8.29-WIP4 Recommended) (NOT Included)
    A WHDLoad version (16.4 Recommended)  (NOT Included)
    A WHDLoad key (Not required, but strongly recommended) (NOT Included)
    Rom files for A500 and A1200 (NOT Included)
    CenterWin commodity (included in this archive)

    Please use the included harddisk installer "Install E-UAELoad".

    -Download and open the WHDLoad archive of your favorite Amiga game to any
    -Double click the "InstallGame" icon in the program drawer
    -It will pop up a FileRequester.
    -Simply Drag&Drop the GAME ICON (!!! NOT the drawer icon !!!) into the
     and click Install.
    -You can move or copy the game directory to somewhere else after
    -You can re-install your games if needed. You don't need to uninstall them.

    -To Install your Chipset Requiring applications, use the InstallApp instead.
    -Drag&Drop the icon of your application into requester, click install.
    -Answer the requesters that will pop up.
    -You can re-install or uninstall your apps. Simply repeat the first two
     You will be asked for which.
    -To finetune your emulation for a specific app, drag&drop its icon onto
EditPad on 
     Amidock. Read the instructions carefully.

Important Note : NEVER use "InstallGame" installer to use your applications via
Allways use "InstallApp". Otherwise you will lose the executable of your app.
Do not use installer scripts on other files. 
I take no responsiblity if a data loss may occur.

How It Works:
    WHDLoad games are run with a Project Icon which has "WHDLoad" as their
default tool.
    "InstallGame" copies a script which has the same name with the icon to the
    During installation E-UAELoad makes a copy of your IconX in "C:" renamed as
    (eg. Flashback game runs with the project icon named
    will copy the E-UAELoad script into its drawer and rename it as Flashback.
Then when 
    you doubleclick the Flashback icon, it will execute the script. Because the
    command in your "C:" is actually a copy of IconX.)

    Mentioned script is in E-UAELoad:DefaultConfigs/   (DONOT Rename or Delete) 
and it
    prepares an .uaerc and startup-sequence file to configure E-UAE for the 
    doubleclicked game. Runs E-UAE (v0.8.29-WIP4 recommended), and centers the 
    window by CenterWin commodity simulating a "F10" keyboard stroke.

Specials: (For Advanced Users)

   *You can make different E-UAE configs for each game. For example, you can set
    one game to run in FullScreen mode, or with more frameskipping, or with no
sound ect.

        To achieve this:
        -Drag&Drop your WHDLoad game icon, onto EditPad on AmiDock
        -Read the instructions care fully and edit the variables
        -Save the file and quit EditPad. (requires .uaerc file experience)

        To create a special .uaerc file for a game:
        - run the game once.
        - go to E-UAELoad: and show all files.
        - find the .uaerc file and copy it to game drawer.
        - edit the .uaerc file (the one in the game drawer) and save it.

   *If you want to run WHDLoad with the tooltypes (icon tooltypes are ignored,
    You have to create a special Startup-Sequence for your game.
        To achieve this:
        - run the game once.
        - go to E-UAELoad:S/
        - Find the startup-sequence in that drawer and copy it to game drawer
        - Open the startup-sequence (the one you've just copied) in a text
        - Locate the line which looks like this :
                WHDLoad SplashDelay=0 Slave={GAMENAME}.slave Preload
         and add your WHDLoad cheats or settings to the end of the line.
        - Save the file.

   *Above steps also apply for Applications.

Bugs :
 -CenterWin commodity makes Amithlon to crash on some configurations if there is
present. If you are using MCP hotkeys to center windows on screen, set your
hotkey to 
F10, and do not install CenterWin commodity when you are asked.

 -If you have used "(" or ")" brackets in your drawer names, scripts cannot
parse your 
pathnames. You will see no error messages, but your game or app wont run. It is
limitation of AmigaDOS.

I take no responsibility if any harm or data loss may happen because of
