Just in case anybody is interested, a new version of DAPHNE has just been released. The website is here, in case you wanna know more about this emulator:


Here's the news blurb...

Updated version of DAPHNE (v0.99.3a).

This one contains bug fixes mostly.

YUV hardware acceleration was not working for dragon's lair, space ace,
or thayer's quest in windows. This should be fixed now.

Multiple mpeg files were not working with daphne either, although just 1 big
mpeg file worked fine. Multiple mpeg files should now work, so you don't
have to have just 1 big file anymore.

Super Don sound samples have been redone and now sound better.


DAPHNE v0.99.3a (September 26st, 2001) for WINDOWS 95/98/2000
DAPHNE v0.99.3 (September 21st, 2001) for GNU/Linux

DAPHNE, the First Ever Multiple Arcade Laserdisc Emulator! DAPHNE is a
program that lets one play the original
versions of many laserdisc arcade games on one's PC.

First of all, the old version required the user to have a laserdisc player
and a laserdisc. The new version will allow you
to use an mpeg2 file instead of a laserdisc. So no external hardware is
required. The mpeg2 player is built-in. You don't
need any additional DVD software installed.

The old version supported two games: Dragon's Lair and Space Ace. The new
version supports ten (!!) games:

Astron Belt
Cliff Hanger
Cobra Command
Dragon's Lair
Esh's Aurunmilla (!! very rare game !!)
Galaxy Ranger
Space Ace
Super Don Quixote
Thayer's Quest
