how to auto-mount CD image using Daemon Tools for use in UNZ emu.

Where "O" is the drive letter image will be mounted to.

You can select which Drive letter you want UNZ to use for CDROM.

and voila it works.

My latest discovery... loading a floppy and CD based game in MAME.  At least for FM Towns.

In LaunchBox, under Game - Edit and in the Emulation tab, check the box "Use Custom Command Line Parameters".  Then enter in the box below it

fmtowns -flop1 %1% -cdrm %1%

D:\emulators\MAME\software\fmtowns_cd\lotr2\the lord of the rings - the two towers.chd

To run this game from the command line, you'd use

mame64 fmtowns -flop1 lotr2 -cdrm lotr2

It will know to look for both the "lotr2.zip" file and ...chd_file under the "fmtowns_cd" folder because of the "fmtowns" parameter in the command line.
