Does anyone have a WinUAE Configuration file (.UAE) for these games? I can't get Black Dawn 1.adf to start. Are these games for Amiga 500, 600 or 1200, OCS or AGA?
The Black Dawn Collection
A downloadable game
A Complete (?) collection of the Classic Dungeon Crawler series from the 90s on the Commodore Amiga!

But why the interrogation point after "complete"?
Black Dawn 7 does not run on my FS-UAE, and on my WIN-UAE it runs as attached. Then the game just runs in crashed mode. All other Black Dawns in this collection runs perfectly.
Also I don't know how to get Black Dawn 9 to run.
Also I Can't get Parasite 2 to run on either FS-UAE or WIN-UAE, and don't know what to do with the 1st Parasite .dms file. Would appreciate instructions greatly.
Nevermind. Everything including Parasites work now with Amiga Forever. Just don't know what to do with Black Dawn 9?
I think it's missing some files, as its size is less than 1/10 of the other games' sizes and none of the unpacked files are playable on Retroarch's PUAE (which I know for a fact that work with me).
If anyone's interested, “Parasite (F119).DMS” needs to be unpacked with a tool such as xdms (Linux), The Unarchiver (Mac) or WinFellow (Windows).
I didn't test the Mac and Windows tools yet, but on Linux, I tested and it works.
Here's the steps to use it on Linux:
First, if your distro has the tool in its repositories, you can use a command such as:
$ sudo apt install xdms
Then open the terminal window and navigate to the folder with the file ( $ cd path/to/file's/location ) and, if you didn't change the file's name, type the following command:
$ xdms u "Parasite (F119).DMS"
This should output an .adf file which can be used in the emulator of your choice.
Can't pay with credit card
Now we just need WHDLoad slaves for all the titles besides BDR.
Behold the awesomeness!
Wow, what a collection, thank you so much for offering it here! I'll fire up WinUAE immediately! :D
I hope you enjoy!
Thank you for the games.
How to use “Blackdawn 9” and “Parasite (F119)” because it’s not a .adf?
“Blackdawn 8” is not in the game list is it normal please?
Could you please provide the game manuals?
The new “Amiga Forever 9” is available: https://www.amigaforever.com/
Thank you very much
9 and Parasite are just archived so you just need to unpack them on pc before using them. As for 8 I dont think it ever existed!
Thank you for your reply.
I will try later, I use “Amiga Forever 9”, it’s a bit annoying that you can not have the game manuals.
Thank you very much
I think Black Dawn 9 missing some files, as its size is less than 1/10 of the other games' sizes and none of the unpacked files are playable on Retroarch's PUAE (which I know for a fact that work with me).
This is what I get once that's extracted.
"read.me" confuses the computer that it's a .me extension (that I am not aware exists), and subsequently anything that has a . on it will also be confused for the respective extension and identified with an unknown file type. I can trick the computer for the read.me to remove the . and it can be opened with a text editor anyway.
I have no idea what format or file type the others are supposed to be assigned.
