Hello to all, it's really a grat job, i have a question, i ve download lha for amiga, i have amiga 1200 + gotek and HDD, how i can play the 16/17 on real amiga? Than you to all
I'm have a similar situation as this chap. I've been playing the original SWOS, off disk, for years and while I have an internal CF HDD for the A1200 now I don't really know how to get the best from it and I don't know how to get the file I've downloaded from here onto it in order to play this brand new version.

I promise I've searched the forums for helpful hints and tips (in fact it's how I discovered the post above), but I'm still baffled as I don't know the first thing about it.

Amiga needs 2 MB Fastram. Is that the case with yours?

Yep - 8Mb expansion as well as the CF HDD!

I just don't know how to get the file from this PC to the A1200. I've read a few guides but they have a fairly high level of assumed knowledge about Amiga that I don't have (I've just been playing games on it for 25 years) - and really I could do with it spelling out so plainly that a patient dog could achieve it.

Using the PCMCIA port on the amiga does the trick. Im using EasyADF kit from amigakit.com: http://amigakit.leamancomputing.com/catalog/product_info.php?products_id=440

You will also need a Compact Flash Card besides the adaptor. You should not go over 512 mb as far as I recall. I once bought a 2 gb which did not work. Now I have a 128 mb that works perfect! Look for these older cards on ebay or ask at your nearest electronics/photographer store if they have some old cards in their storage. Thats how i got mine quite cheap.

You will also benefit from using a proper copy program such as directory opus or xlent pro. Both can be downloaded on the internet.

ok managed to sort screen size  ;D  but windows cant find game.bat???
now to the career section i have downloaded both exe and zip file of the game and played both and still 96/97 in career mode???

Thanks so much everyone who helps keep this alive and up to date :)

I have this same screen size issue - can you post how you solved it? [PC, win7] Alt+Enter expands the screen to full size (1366x768) but the actual playing screen within the black fullscreen is still only about 2/3 of the screen. With Total Pack this stretched to fill most of the screen. OK it was a little fuzzy as a result but I prefer it. The dosbox version seems to be the same so presumably this is just a configuration setting, but I've tried (dicked about with in a clueless fashion) the obvious stuff in ipx.conf (window resolution etc.) and I can't make it work. A fix would be much appreciated if anyone can post one.

@dsri, You can use "dosbox daum"( google it). After opening dosbox daum you must choose quick launch from menu. Then you can select swsengpp.exe from game folder. It ll start to load game. Now you can choose any video options from menu without using .conf files. I recommend you  that aspect correction-double buffering-vysnc host options must be selected.

It'd be great to know what file you changed and how :)

ipx.conf (it's in folder DOSBOX)

Thanks. I've tried fiddling with that and not had any success. I set the following variables to match the settings in run_game.conf in Total Pack v1.5, but it makes no difference, I still get the small SWOS screen inside dosbox fullscreen.

fullscreen=true
fulldouble=false
fullresolution=0x0
windowresolution=1024x768

(and scaling is set to normal3x)

Looking at Total Pack there are two display options affecting this:
* Size pulldown (set to fullscreen)
* Widescreen checkbox (checked - this does a horizontal stretch on the SWOS window)

I think these are doing something that isn't in the ipx.conf file (or run_game.conf in Total Pack), and I can't find any other config file that looks relevant, so the question is what and is it something that can be replicated in ipx.conf?

Of course I can just switch my screen resolution to 800x600 or similar, but if there's a solution (and there presumably is because Total Pack has one) then there must be lots of other people with the same problem who would like to enjoy SWOS 16/17 as near to full screen as possible.

Hm, you can try to duplicate the Total Pack one, rename it to ipx.conf and replace the old one (backup first!!).
