[Sticky] F.A.Q. and CD32 free games list

Q: Download X no longer works
A: Mega occasionally has issues with downloads. If it doesn't work, give it a few hours and try again. If it still doesn't work, note the exact message and game and leave a comment on the post. Also - use Firefox or Chrome rather than IE or Safari.

Q: I can't burn the CUE/ISO for download X
A: "Burnaware Free" is my default, which I find extremely reliable. "ImgBurn" seems to be less reliable, but has a lot more features (eg support for burning ISOs).

Q: Game X is unplayable with the PSX Adapter
A: Some games are entirely incompatible with the adapter in CD32 mode, try playing it in the 1 or 2 button configuration.

Q: Do these work on a real CD32?
A: Yes, in every case they've been tested on a CD32, although I haven't checked each and every single game on the 160 game compilation.

Q: In some platformers, you need to press up to jump. Can you make it so that on all platformers you can press a button instead?
A: We can't, simply because adding that functionality usually requires a custom patch in the WHDLoad slave, and implementing these is beyond my current technical ability. Normally, if this ability exists in the WHDLoad slave (eg Giana Sisters), I'll enable it. The best solution is using a third party controller like the AmiPad 32 where spare buttons are mapped to up, or the PSX adapters by Paul Willingham and Kipper2K that allows you to custom map buttons to up.

Q: On some games, the screen flashes repeatedly.
A: This is an unfortunate consequence of games that were only designed to load from floppy disc being loaded through WHDLoad or JOTD startup. Since the release of JOTD's "CD32 Load", some of these games can be loaded with far shorter times.

Q: Would you consider porting game X?
A: Absolutely, just let us know what games you'd like to see and we'll consider them. A few things to keep in mind however -
  1. We absolutely will not port games that are still for sale through ACP&TCP, AmigaKit etc
  2. Certain games we can't currently do due to technical limitations on a stock CD32, eg Primal Rage, Onescappe, Doom. We may consider doing these for SX-32 owners at a later date.
  3. We usually don't do games that are unplayable without the keyboard (we'd only make an exception to this for special cases, such as SOTB2 on the larger Shadow of the Beast collection)
  4. We do prefer doing games that we can bundle bonuses into, such as a new CDXL intro or one ported from a different version of the game.

This is an WIP attempt to provide a list of all currently available free CD32 ISO downloads, either unofficial releases or official ones that aren't on emulator sites, torrent sites etc. If we're missing any, please let me know in the comments below.
