unfortunately don't work.

i tried a game like 1000nen Outoku that has diskA.d88, diskB.d88, discC.d88, userdisk.d88.

the emulator that works is x88000.
m88 doesn'twork and pc88 crashes
with m88 there is an error in gemus, but i don't know what is it..

This solution for games that have single disks seems not to work properly..

for now, i use my collection to make an update.
If we can find a solution for that big archive with game with single disk, better for the future.

just tried it and it works ok for me in M88 and PC88.

if the file name is over 8.3 like this...

1000nen Oukoku_Disk A.d88

you will need to use short filenames.

emulators.ini

[M88]
UseShortFilenames=1

[PC88]
UseShortFilenames=1

Or rename disks to DOS 8.3 like this...
1000n_A.d88
1000n_B.d88
1000n_U.d88

your setup must have errors then.
i fixed your original bugged emulator pack.
make sure you removed ZIP from the SupportedTypes.

emulators.ini

Code: Select all

[Emulators]
1=M88
2=x88000
3=PC88
4=quasi88
5=

[M88]
UseShortFilenames=1
UseDefaultTypes=0
SupportedTypes=d88;fdi
EmulatorPathFile=C:\GameBase\PC88\emulators\m88\M88.exe
ScriptFile=m88.txt
WaitFinish=1
1=C:\GameBase\PC88\emulators\m88\M88.ini
2=

[x88000]
UseShortFilenames=0
UseDefaultTypes=0
SupportedTypes=d88;n80
EmulatorPathFile=C:\GameBase\PC88\emulators\x88000\X88000.exe
ScriptFile=x88000.txt
WaitFinish=1
1=C:\GameBase\PC88\emulators\x88000\X88000.ini
2=

[PC88]
UseShortFilenames=1
UseDefaultTypes=0
SupportedTypes=d88
EmulatorPathFile=C:\GameBase\PC88\emulators\pc88win\PC88WIN.EXE
ScriptFile=pc88.txt
WaitFinish=1
1=C:\GameBase\PC88\emulators\pc88win\PC88Win.ini
2=

[quasi88]
UseShortFilenames=1
UseDefaultTypes=0
SupportedTypes=d88
EmulatorPathFile=C:\GameBase\PC88\emulators\quasi88\QUASI88.exe
ScriptFile=quasi88.txt
WaitFinish=1
1=C:\GameBase\PC88\emulators\quasi88\QUASI88.ini
2=
you must link each INI file as shown, for the script to work.
1=C:\GameBase\PC88\emulators\m88\M88.ini

or wherever it is
1=K:\emul\GameBase\PC88\emualtors\m88\M88.ini

the (1|| in this line...
Set_INI_Value(1||M88p2 for Windows||Resume||0)

refers to this line in the emulators.ini.
1=C:\GameBase\PC88\emulators\m88\M88.ini

that has nothing to do with the emu or script.

if you are using the TOSEC collection?
you are missing the character disk.

you will have 2 versions of the GAME disk.
a Quasar Info disk (bootable)
and a DATA disk.

you will need the CHARACTER disk.
this is almost identical to the DATA disk apart from a few bytes.
use another copy.
--
after Intro select lower option from menu.

insert
drive1=data
drive2=char

wait 1min for disk creation.
enter name of your character.

Select top option from menu.
insert
drive1=game
drive2=char

the game will then load.

maybe could be less than 1100 entries becuase some games do not work.
However, there are much choice than V1 version :)
