Amiberry Configs.
#1
I finally setup amiberry working.
Just 2 problems.
I have a game on two disk, i dont want to use the whdload version because the second disk has the saves of my teams of sensible soccer.
I remember that there was a script and you have to rename disk as: (Disk 1 of 2) and (Disk 2 of 2) but seems not working.
looking at: /opt/retropie/emulators/amiberry/amiberry.sh there is no code that seems related to disk managment.
But seem that if there is a file .uae with some overrides to config this will be loaded before rom.

But also here is had a problem:
so i created a Flappy Bird.uae file with inside:
kickstart_rom_file=/home/pi/RetroPie/BIOS/kick31.rom
chipmem_size=4

The game doesn't start and amiberry show the gui.

If i push start the chip memory is still 0.5mb and kikstart is still 1.3
i also added
use_gui=no
but still start the gui.
Any suggestion?

ok putting more options like these:

config_description=Flappy Bird
chipmem_size=2
bogomem_size=2
cpu_model=68010
chipset=ecs
cachesize=0
kickstart_rom_file=$(FILE_PATH)/kick20.rom


it works.
This evening i will try to do the same for the 2nd disk.

adding this line to the line to the file.uae:

floppy1=$HOME/RetroPie/roms/amiga/SensibleSoccer(Disk2of2).adz


seems not working... but seems that amyberry cant access files on a usb share. i cannot add also from gui. simply doesn't show the hd_01 inside the media folder...
i think that this cannot be fixed i will try again with another sd with the games onboard.

The files on usb shares can be accessed if permissions are correct...
But seems that cannot access symbolic links.
I reported on amyberry github, and was already corrected!

I have a question about amiberry config.
The script that chose the config is something related to RetrorangePI or Retropie?
Many Games get benefits from ECS chipset and extra memory.
I was planning to do a mod to the script to add also ECS support. and force old kickstart and ocs with tag (OCS)
or maybe a default config with fast floppy more memory etc.
and force with (AGA) (ECS) or (OCS) games that are not compatible.
Maybe is better the first case.

And whre i can find info about how autoconfig for whdload works?
I have issues with some interlaced archives.

Retropie

amiberry installation inherits configs from UAE4ARM
https://github.com/RetroPie/RetroPie-Set...rry.sh#L74

https://github.com/RetroPie/RetroPie-Set...arm.sh#L44

then Amiberry execution scripts (amiberry.sh) are created based on
https://github.com/RetroPie/RetroPie-Set...uae4arm.sh

the WHDLOAD feature is called from
https://github.com/RetroPie/RetroPie-Set...arm.sh#L15

then it's Amiberry doing the magic:
