Wow.

Yesterday Daemon Tools v 300 with analogic audio support.

Now a free and excellent CD32 emu.

CD emulation is taken to higher grounds.

Is this for 'playing' crap like Dragon's Lair?

Dragon's lair was not a good game because it was intended to be an interactive animation rather than a game. The man behind it is Don Bluth, one of the greatest animators ever,and in my opinion his movies kick disney's axx all the time but definitely his work is not exactly what the gamers are used to see

Daemon-Tools are used to mount an ISO file of any CD on a virtual CD Drive, in that way youre able to, for example, read your fav. game CD with CLONE CD and make an ISO out of it, then mount in Daemon-Tools and use it from your HD as if it was a real CD .... nice for mounting CD ISOs and play them in the Emu Daemon-Tools can even bypass some security code on CDs like Safe-Lock and so on .....

Edit : looks like Retro-Man answered faster.

Many way of using Daemon tools especially with the new version.

To sum up, it allows you to use a CD image (Iso, Bin+cue, nrg (nero)) as it was a real CD.

First test the ISOs/Cue+bin you got. Instead of wasting one or more CD, you can run the images from the hard drive.

Then you can make a compilation of CDs. A game like The terminator : Future Shock only uses 98 Mb. So instead of using a whole CD, you can burn the Cue+bin image with other stuff on a cd. Then you'll select the cue file in dameon tools and your image will behave like the real CD would.
This might be useful when DVD-burner will be cheap.

And finally now that analogic audio has been implemented, you can run Dracula X : Rondo of Blood on Magic Engine.
The full image was unburnable (many people reported this) and ISO+mp3 just isn't fatihful enough.
So now you just have to run the image from your hard drive or a CD.

Seems useful, but I disagree with this last bit. I had a copy of Dracula X PCE for a long time now, and it was not burned from an ISO+MP3 thing, it was copied from an original. A friend of mine gave it to me. It seems the ISOs out there, or something like that , ws fucked, and that made it unburnable. My copy works fine except for a slight audio desyncing problem.

Dracula X PCE is the only CDR I have, mind you. When I shit money, perhaps I buy it

When I try to run setup.exe after extracting the Daemon Tools zip, it complains that I don't have a USB supplement and therefore doesn't install. And I don't intend to use any USB-based device in the near future either. But I can simply bypass that restriction by running the installation program through the "Daemon Tools.msi" file. Is this the wrong way to do it?

I guess you have Win95.

On the online manual (http://www.daemon-tools.com/daemon.htm) you can read :

"Windows 95 is supported since version 1.03.
But notice that you need at least Windows 95B with installed USB Supplement and at least Internet Explorer 4.x."

USB supplement is just a piece of program added in Windows since W95 OS-R2. There is a link when you click the phrase "USB Supplement" to download it.

Doing otherwise might lead you to some unexpected behaviours.

Yep, it is unburnable and yet fully playable with Daemont Tools. I guess the cue sheet might lacks something about TG16 TOC system or something like that.

I think the desync problem comes from the emu. Unless you tell me you tried it on your friend TG16 with the same problem.

As far as buying Dracula X : Rondo of Blood, I'm not ready to spend thousand of .
It's a very good game but so rare that the price on auction sites is overrealistic.

On alt.games.castlevania some people have suggested that after the recent Castlevania Chronicles, Konami will release Dracula X : Rondo of Blood as the next "updated" old Castlevania.

Let's hope so.

Nope, I tried it only on CrappyEngine... I dont have a Duo yet. (planning to, DuoRX here I come )

This is not exactly true. You can see MANY Dracula X games for auction on eBay, what keeps its price up, is teh demand. The game can be found but there's such a big demand that the price does not drop.

I'd pay up to 150 dollars, not more.

That's still a kind of hellish price for a game. (Not counting shipping).

Even some Neo-Geo carts are cheaper.

100 would be the higher price I would pay. Even after finishing it I'm still ready to play it for hours as I would if I got it for the first time.

Or 150 for a pack : Rondo of Blood (TG16) and Nocturne in the Moonlight (Saturn) (I'm still looking forward to play as Maria).

It's not that much for a brill game. Its the max price Id pay for a top rare game. Radiant Silvergun and Sapphire might fall in the same category.

Oh, and Aldynes

Please talk dollars, I dont know what an euro is worth
