The patches I wrote work up to 68060 powered Amigas without any alteration of the system (no need to modify the caches setup, run DTack, or move the VBR).
I do my best to write as many patches/hd-installers as possible, and with the
best compatibility with all the OS/CPUs (even Kick 1.x)
Some people reported problems with my installers in conjunction with FastExec. Sorry, you'll have to remove the patch or play from floppy 'till I figure out how to do it.
About the installers present on the page which I have not written, I think that they all work (I tested most of them) but maybe you'll have to disable the 68060 caches (cpu060 ns nw nd nb) and maybe also the VBR or use JST as a degrader as follows:
jst game EXECUTE (USERDATA="program arguments") (NTSC) (LEAVEVBR) (LEAVECACHES) (NOQUIT)And you can choose NTSC, NOCACHES, LEAVECACHES, LEAVEVBR, NOQUIT.
For those new games that do not degrade display properly, a JST game EXECUTE LEAVEVBR LEAVECACHES will run the game with only degraded display. Caches and VBR will not be affected.
For executables that autodetach (i.e. run in the background), use the NOQUIT feature to avoid that the display is enhanced again.
In no case (unless specified) do you need to install your game again. Just copy the .readme and executable files in the destination directory to upgrade.
Please specific to each loader. It contains important information about the configuration of the loader.
For new installs by me you should get JOTDStartup (user package) by me.
JST Developper package here (JST included).
Unless otherwise specified, the JST and WHDLoad loaders need:
For Netscape/MSExplorer users on PC, there are problems with LZX files.
The older news are archived here.
You can download the developper package for my HD-Installers and patches, along with developper files, source code, and ripping programs. Useful if you want
to do them by yourself or if you want to understand how all this works, anyway, I think you should have a look at this.
NOTE: All the patches available must be used with of the games. Maybe the patches will work with other versions but that is not guaranteed AT ALL.
. Some installers recently uploaded on aminet are useable only on cracked stuff. Please report those facts to aminet administrators. You will help some people avoid wasting their time trying to make those patches work with their originals.
Feel free to contact me if you think you can help in patching some games, if you wrote patches for original games, or if you own games that you would like to get patched/install on HD, or if you visited this page and have suggestions about it.
Want to send me some originals? See here.
On those sites you'll find cracked but legalized stuff (unlike marijuana :)). Sometimes you can
try to use the diskimages in my HD loaders by naming the disks properly. If the installer
uses disk2file, you can try with diskimages of a crack. Good luck and report me success.

Thanks to the many people who sent me their original copies. I'm planning to release some more installers in the future
