Hi, I'm a newbie surfing the web and just got winUAE and winfellow.

I can create one on winUAE but have found that PM doesn't work well on it when creating a new game (I'd forgotten what software error screen looked like!)

I can get it to work on Winfellow but after changing the league data it asks me for a disk.

What procedure do you go through?

Having suffered from the same problem i found it best to create an amiga formatted disk, first of all using an Amiga boot up disks to get you into the Amiga GUI and formatting your floppy disk there.

This blank disk should allow you to save the data in PM and continue as in a regular game.

nah! easier way is to do it in Winuae, even if you don`t want to use it for emulation, just run winuae and create floppy

Since it's an emulator, *.adf files represent disks. So you need to create an empty adf (Amiga Disk File). WinUAE has a button that automaticaly creates an empty adf in the directory you've installed the emulator. WinFellow has the same option into the configuration menu.
