Hello @ll

i played around with amiga emulation in mame/mess with Amiga 500/plus/2000

I tried to start a A500(ntsc or pal) with this commandline
a500n -fdc:0 35dd -flop1 "C:\WB1.adf" -fdc:1 35dd -flop2 "C:\WB2.adf" -kbd a500_de -slot a590 -hard "C:\Test.chd"

but i get after start the following error message:

HTML
Fatal Error: Select Commands only valid in the disconnect state

and how can i set and tell mame, hdd is slot 0 or 2 or use a cdrom connect?

greetings

That error means there's a bug in the emulation. There's nothing you can do to make it work.

WD33C93. I'd expect the SGIs to be broken too, but I guess you never know.

They are. Garbled Device/Vendor strings, and errors like "Fatal error: wd33c93b: Data FIFO is not empty on phase transition."

Might warrant another GitHub issue, I'll see what I can do later tonight if nobody beats me to it

That's super weird. If you have the time, please sync back to commit 1bc5484698bb746c6f9f7dae58b005d2472f1215 and see if the issue also occurs. If it does, sync back to the commit immediately before it and also check.

The WD33C93 core hasn't been touched in ages, but I'm willing to believe that I may have fucked something up during my device_timer removals.

All right, thanks for the feedback. Not 99% user error in front of the monitor. laugh

The A590 doesn't work yet anyway, the DMAC emulation isn't complete. However, you can use the Buddha IDE controller with the A2000 driver if you want HDD support (or just A600/A1200, those have built-in IDE).

Do you have the right Commandline to load Buddha and put a hd in slot 0


Mame.exe a2000n -zorro2 buddha ... ok and then? with -hard(1)/-hdd(1)/-harddisk(1)/buddha:0:0 or buddha:ata_0:0. .. give me unknown option

It should be something like

mame a2000 -zorro1 buddha -zorro1:buddha:ata_0:0 hdd -hard1 name_of_chd_file.chd

you select the device in each slot and that enables you to use the -hard1 option
