HOW TO Setup & Use WinFellow
|Introduction To Tutorial|
This guide will show you how to setup WinFellow so that you will quickly be able to replay your favourite Amiga games and demos through this ever progressing Amiga emulator for Windows 9x/2k.
Within a few minutes you will be playing your favourite games and will be familiar with the basics of the emulator, remember there will always be the need for a few tweaks to get some of your games/demos to work perfectly or at least become playable so prepare yourself.
You will need the following to follow this tutorial:
Once you have all of the above proceed to the guide.
|Getting to know WinFellow|
First of all:
The following window will appear:
This is the screen you will be using the most, here is a quick explanation of all those buttons:
Disk Images (DF0: through to DF3)
These are the emulated Amiga floppy disk drives, just like on the real Amiga you insert your game/demo into these drives.
After everything is setup and ready to go you would click this button to start your emulator, rather like powering up your real Amiga.
Not needed for most users so we won't look at this feature during this guide.
If you have been playing a game/demo recently and have just inserted another game/demo into the emulated Amiga disk drives then you will need to reset before the game/demo will start. Rather like pressing both Amiga keys and CTRL on your real Amiga.
This is a button you may need to use from time to time (once you have set thing up) to tweak a games performance or to change the occasional setting for a game to work (we will look at this later).
Exit WinFellow and return to Windows.
|Setting up WinFellow|
If you have closed WinFellow, start it again and the following window will apear:
You cannot simply insert your ADF files and click Start Emulation as this will cause the emulator to crash or produce the following error message:
So click the Configuration button from the main window:
The following window will open:
Right, lets set this baby up:
During our test we found that the 68020 Instruction Set is the best one to use, so select that one and click the Memory tab:
The most important setting under this tab is the Kickstart Image. Remember those Kickstart ROM files you moved into your WinFellow folder?, well we are going to use at least one of those now:
Most games work under Kickstart 1.3 and Kickstart 2.0 without any problems, providing you have at least one of these in your WinFellow folder select the one you want to use and press Open.
Note: The Kickstart files inside the file selector above do NOT have to be named KICK13.ROM etc in order to work.
After clicking the Open button you will be taken back to the above tab, notice that your Kickstart image is now written into the text box next to Image. That's it for this tab, now select the Screen tab.
Pull down the Resolution menu and select 640Wx480Hx8BPPx (see below)
That's all you need to change on this tab unless you wish to insert scanlines in the Amiga display (not advised) so select the Gameport tab (important if you wish to play games!)
You can leave the Gameport 1: option set to Mouse (you will often need this to skip dodgy intros) but click the pull down menu next to Gameport 2:
You can select either Keyboard 1 or 2 (the keys are laid out underneath) Joystick (if you have a gameport compatable game pad) or Mouse (if the game is controlled via a second mouse).
That should be enough for this tab, finally select the Blitter tab
Now, here is one of the tricky settings. In most cases your games/demos should work fine with OCS selected but certain titles look for the newer ECS blitter chipset and you may need to change it. For now we will leave it alone, click OK to return to the main window again.
Time to insert those ADF images you have stored on your hard drive, click the high lighted button (see above) to select your first ADF image.
Obviously your collection will be larger than the above, this is after all just an example. For this example lets say we want to load the game Moonwalker, as you can see from above it has 2 disks or ADF images so we would select the first one:
And click the Open button.
Now select the button underneath (DF1: high lighted above) and select the next one:
And click the Open button.
If you have more disks (ADFs) for the game/demo you are trying to run you would select them using DF2: and DF3: before finally clicking on Start Emulation
Within a few minutes your game/demo will be on-screen in all of its glory (see the screenshot below)
To return to WinFellow hit F11 on your keyboard, please note that on some systems the palette becomes corrupted until the emulator itself is re-started.
If you are having problems getting your game/demo to work in WinFellow try the following:
After changing each setting remember to click OK and Start Emulation to try again. "If at first you don't succeed try again" is a term you should be familar with in the Amiga emulation world.
Be aware that some titles simply won't work no matter how many alterations you make (Robocop 3 - Fairlight Cracked version).
