Ive been trying to download a complete rom set but half of the games are in a .zip format and the other half are .lhd, been looking to convert them but its a pain as you cannot just rename to .lhd!!! as the original Amiga would just decompress on the fly using whdload but the A500 mini will not see the .zip format.
Anyone had any luck in a complete set in just .lhd format !!!
Gr Davy for the amiga mini its .lha files that you need
Your link to the games only has version 1.3 of Frontier_v1.3_CD32 Which does not load using various expert settings Ive also been looking at the WHDload_db.xml file that you have to have on the usb stick and looking at the game Frontier it gives the correct setting for that game i.e V1.2 I download verion 1.2 and it worked, So im going to have a play with this file to see if i can edit it to update it......as some of the settings you cannot use in the carousel i.e cpu, aga and clock settings
Ive just been on Github and downloaded the lastest amiberry-a7c13292efafa738b52289a3708c9f1300027c68 files and the whdboot folder has already been updated with a bigger and better list of amiga games .A500mini whdload_db.xml file is 4.98 MB (5,226,873 bytes) and the new one is 7.23 MB (7,590,900 bytes) looking at it , Its got all the frontier (eliteII) versions on it so ill be updating mine now,so maybe there will be more games that will load.........

This release should hopefully fix the remaining FTP download and connection issues. Make sure that you allow the program through your firewall when Windows asks.
You may get a false AV notification. This is due to how Purebasic wraps Window API commands. Just whitelist the executable if you want to use the program. I've included the source code in the zip file.

Version 0.8a is available
There's two versions in this release. A stable release based on the v0.7a FTP code and an unstable version based on the v0.6a FTPEx library download code that crashes the GUI sometimes. The reason is, there were still a few users who had connection issues with the new code. Having both versions available, should hopefully mean that everyone can use the tool.
Only one major addition. There is now a 'Make Folder' button which is there to create new folders out of your existing downloads. For instance, if you have a full set but only want to copy ECS/OCS games to an A500/600/2000/3000, just untick AGA and CD32 in the filter, press the 'Make Folder' button, select a new folder, decide whether to keep the folder structure and press go.
Fixes / Updates
Fixed old dat files not being deleted in Scan FTP procedure.
Cleaned up unneeded variables and lists from the FTP download procedures.
Fixed console actions on Download FTP procedure.
Tweaked FTP procedures to use real FTP variables rather than 1 & 0.
Minor speed up when processing strings.
Added button that makes a new folder of archives based on your filter selections.
Make Folder opens the output folder window when complete.
The Amiberry 3.3 version used in the A500mini seems to only support .lha and .cue files for it's autoloading solution. However, the A500mini carousel (when in USB stick mode) looks for, and displays, only .lha files.
So it looks like, for now, only .lha are supported.
The workaround is to get in to the Amiberry GUI and load a custom .uae config.
