Mala Using N64 and Amiga Emulator
« on: January 14, 2016, 02:08:00 am »
Hi Folks,

Looking for some advice.
I recently setup an arcade cabinet using an old PC running MAME on MALA.
I had difficulty setting up MALA to run the MAME Roms but got some great help on here which helped me get it done.

Now I have this running well I'd also like to get an Amiga and N64 emulator to run through Mala too.
I have downloaded what I think is right Emulators.
I tried adding the N64 one to MALA but when I click on a game I get an error message which requires the mouse to click "ok/cancel", I can't remember what the message is exactly to be honest.

Does anyone have easy to follow guides for getting these two emulators to run via MALA front page?

Thanks

Search the forum or use WinUAELoader.

I use Project64 for N64 and they load fine calling them directly.

No tutorial or special settings required to set up calling these as "Other Emu Config".

So I did a bit more research because I wanted to run the WHDload library.

I edited system:S/user-startup in my Amiga profile running WB4 HDD and added

Code: [Select]
if exists HDD3:S/GAMELOADER
  execute HDD3:S/GAMELOADER
endif

Then I wrote a batch script that gets called by MaLa (with path and rom.ext) to insert the WHDload file

Code: [Select]
REM Load WHD files for frontend
set GAMEDIR=%~1%
set GAMERUN=%2%
set GAMEFIX=%GAMEDIR:*hdd3\=%
set GAMEFIX=%GAMEFIX:\=/%
REM Create Amiga Boot script
echo cd HDD3:%GAMEFIX%> GAMELOAD
echo whdload %GAMERUN%>> GAMELOAD
REM Amiga no likey DOS files :(
.\dos2unix -n GAMELOAD GAMELOADER
REM start WinUAE
cd E:\_retro\amiga\game\emus
winuae.exe -f Amiga1200WB4PAL.uae -s use_gui=0

Mind you, HDD3 is a defined hard drive in my template so you can rename it or use it

Code: [Select]
filesystem2=rw,DH3:HDD3:E:\_retro\amiga\game\emus\Hard Drives\HDD3,0
uaehf2=dir,rw,DH3:HDD3:E:\_retro\amiga\game\emus\Hard Drives\HDD3,0


Now, if I could only shut it down. F10 brings me back to the emulator WB screen.
