I have finally got coffin working and displayed on my hdmi monitor.  When I test a screen mode like pal highres it does default to the scart/vga screen ive setup fine.

but when i run any old game through whdload it loads but nothing shows on the old monitor and igame freezes

am i missing something?

Unfortunately, you haven't mentioned anything else about the system you're running, but from your other thread, we'll assume you're running a V1200. Are you getting any sound from the games you're trying to run or is everything just silent and frozen on a black screen?
Is your A1200 connected to the internet via a PCMCIA network card (or other card) and a TCP/IP stack? If so, it will need to be disabled when a WHDLoad game is started.
This can be done by editing the WHDLoad.prefs file is S directory and uncommenting:
"ExecuteStartup=Execute" (which will disable the network on startup of game) and:
"ExecuteCleanup=Execute" (which will re-enable network once you have exited the game).

stock a1200 with vampire and stock coffin os

connected to hdmi monitor and scart monitor.

literally the only game that has managed to run is cannon fodder 2

for everything else it just hangs on the hdmi monitor like t should be doing something on the scart but nothing happens.

isnt there a way to window them all? it works when its on uae
