The Amiga script you have will work.

when adding a HDF gamefile, you need browse the archive and link the HDF file inside the zip.
do not link only the zip file.

If you remove ZIP from the supported filetypes, before adding the new HDF games. Gamebase will link the HDF file for you.

But you must replace the ZIP afterwards for the WHD files to work.

i am talking about editing the emulators.ini


1) remove "zip" from this line (restart gamebase)

2) add your zipped HDF files

3) replace "zip" in the line.
this is needed for loading WHDLoad archives.

you only need to do this if you have many files to add.
it will just speed the process up, with less mouse clicks for each game.

ah ok
but hdf zipped games do i have to put in "games" folder or in Extra?
i tried in "Extra", but didn't work.
however in my GameBase Amiga by Belgarath in emumlator.ini i have only "ZIP" in filetypes.
i have added "HDF" to load hdf zipped files.

now i try to load them "Games" folder
