Games require Disk Drive A to boot?

Recommended Posts

Do some games like Bubble Bobble, etc require it to be launched from disk-drive A?

 

Bubble Bobble launches fine on my Atari ST 520 as it only has an external drive (which is drive A) BUT it fails on my Atari 1040 STF when I launch it from external drive B.

 

I can make a A/B drive enable swap switch like I did for my Apple /// but want to confirm this is actually the issue first.

Yep that’s why a lot of people are having problems with a GOTEK hooked up to their Atari STF computers as drive B:

So for my Apple /// with FloppyEmu I did the mod so it didn't touch the hardware and modified custom ribbon cables to swap drive-enable lines.

You can see that here: https://68kmla.org/forums/topic/60583-apple-iii-floppy-emu/?do=findComment&comment=651569

 

Now I'll have to decide if I want to use the same method for my Atari STF but that might be harder on this computer because of the external cable.
