Recommended Posts

What are some of the methods you have used to address games with multiple disks?

In case someone googles and finds this.

There is a feature in vice called fliplists. There is a header, and a list of paths/images. I've not figured out how to make it portable as of yet, as ../ doesnt work.

exampled of command line to add: -fliplist "Z:\Retrowares\Commodore 64\Ultima\ultima4.vfl

In this example we have a flip list that associates 2 images with one drive, and 2 with another.
filename = ultima4.vfl

# Vice fliplist file

UNIT 8
Z:\Retrowares\Commodore 64\Ultima\ULTIMA4A.D64
Z:\Retrowares\Commodore 64\Ultima\ULTIMA4B.D64
UNIT 9
Z:\Retrowares\Commodore 64\Ultima\ULTIMA4C.D64
Z:\Retrowares\Commodore 64\Ultima\ULTIMA4D.D64

If I work out how to use ../ -vs- the true path and make this portable I will swing back around and post how. If anyone knows how please let us know.

I've created and implemented fliplists for the multi-disk Ultimas, lode runner, mail order monsters, deamonstalkers, and a few programs. This makes it so you just hit alt-n for the next disk -vs- manually doing it from a menu and taking you out of full screen mode.

I'm also planning on making a 'collection' fliplist that would allow someone to just explore a collection like they would have back when. Add fastload cartridge or the wedge so they can pull directories.

or use the RetroArch VICE core and work with standard m3u files

Also my request here would make our life easier
