Hi

Can I use any adf with amikit and Igame / whdload

When I try to install a adf using the whdload installer from whdload website it fails reading the adf I have tried quite a few and all do the same thing. Am I missing some thing?

Try this:

Run AmiKit and when it boots up to desktop, press F12 and WinUAE window will pop-up. Click the Floppy drives in left column. Insert the ADF files here. Click OK to return to AmiKit. The ADFs get mounted like you would have inserted a real disks. Now unpack the WHDLoad installer for the particular game and run the installer. The installer should find the game disks and install the game. That's it.

Hi

That's what I have been trying to do. But when it goes to access the adf it fails to read the disk.

If WHDLoad installer cannot read the disk, it might mean that it's not a right disk - means the particular ADF is not supported...

What game are you trying to install?

I've just installed Pinball Illusions without any problems here. And I inserted ZIP archive of ADF image. Note that the disk itself don't need to be accessible from desktop, but the particular WHDLoad game installer should be able to read them.

Maybe the most easy way is to leave the disks inserted and reboot AmiKit. The game will be loaded directly before AmiKit

WinUAE can read ADF in ZIP archive too.
