[ARCADE PC] CLIFF HANGER AC - BLU-RAY DISC REMASTERED (Laserdisc)
I’m back with a story that is quite nuts… after the upload of Timegal last time,
I promised to resume from the dead also a restored edition of Cliff Hanger made by a cool guy in 2009…
Well… While digging into my archives it turns out I have found something even better…
A true remaster (not restoration) that I did personally in 2010
after I have bought in Tokyo the Japanese blu-ray of Cagliostro and Mamo…
I guess being very busy for all these years has erased from my memories such event cause
I have to admit the surprise has been definitely jaw dropping since I had no recollection of it whatsoever
until I found the lost folder (probably the weed was very good, LOL)…
Anyway… now that this little crappy masterpiece has been brought back to light
and being so pleased by the fact that I got back so many good memories of that specific time
I’m ready to share it with all of you… I did it with such meticulous love and a killer frame by frame precision
that I’m sure you’ll be able to notice the incomparable difference with the original blurry Laserdisc capture,
so here it is truly hoping that all the purists around here are gonna have a blast with it, Enjoy and Peace!!
I added also an HD CD layout ready to be printed if you wish to archive it on a physical support.
The remaster it comes in three different versions:
- 640x480_30i - The exact replica of the laserdisc 30 frames (60 fields) per
second interlaced. Use this one if you want to play Cliff Hanger on an
arcade monitor or a (CRT) TV.
- 640x480_24p - 24 frames per second progressive scan.
This is the way the animation was drawn in the first place,
and perfect for Desktop PC.
- 640x480_24p_letterbox - 24 FPS progressive letterboxed.
(Don’t ask me why I did this cause I have no clue, LOL)
Frame files, cliff24P.txt, Cliff24P_Letterbox.txt and Cliff30i.txt, are included “BUT”
You will need to edit it according on which mpeg you wanna use and where you have Daphne installed.
This release comes with an updated version of Daphne, the whole CH archive is stored in the
Roms folder as well as the framefiles.
IF YOU ARE NOT FAMILIAR WITH DAPHNE EMU I HIGHLY SUGGEST TO READ
THE “BRD REMASTERED_INFO.txt” file included in the main folder or
taking a look at the official Daphne forum!

Here's a comparison between the LD, the restored and the remastered version.
PS. The picture quality it's so good that there's no need of scanlines,
if you want to enable it anyway i suggest an 800x600 res setting on Daphne video options to display it properly!
