The moment you have all been waiting for is here!
I started with a clean slate after corrupting my install and found an easier way to get custom games running.
so since the process is a little simpler I thought I’d share it with you all earlier then planed 🙂
I will still release lots of tweaks and a few tools to simplify the process of loading the custom games.
This How To Guide has been updated! Please view the new guide HERE.
This Guide is for v1.1.11
Here is a quick guide on how to do it, and if you have troubles you can view the more detailed guide below.
SSH into /private/var/mobile/Applications/*/C64.app/games/DragonsDen
Create a backup of “gameinfo.plist” in case any editing goes bad.
Edit “gameinfo.plist” and remove the following lines of code:
Save the changes to “gameinfo.plist”.
Create a Backup of “DRAGONSD.D64”.
Put the custom game image (*.d64/*.t64) you want to use in the DragonsDen folder.
Launch the C64 Emulator and while viewing your Game Shelf SSH into the DragonsDen folder and rename your custom image to “DRAGONSD.D64”.
Now tap the Dragon’s Den [Run/Play] button and when asked don’t resume the previous game if your running this for the first time.
old saves states loading (relaunch game, not app to fix)
changes to plist require app re-launch
game does not display on game shelf (rename the custom image and restore the original, launch the emulator and then rename the game.)
More details and a full guide to follow later, I’ve run out of time >.<
