Bonjour à tous !

 

Comme promis, après Space Ace, voici la version HD 4/3 de DL2 : Timewarp.

 

Tout est identique : jeu prêt à jouer, 2 versions en 720P et 1080P (lancez le fichier bat de votre choix sachant que le 720 est opengl) et je travaille sur une version sans grain pour les amateurs.

 

Les contrôle sont identiques à ceux de Space Ace à l'exception du choix du niveau qui n'existe pas ici.

 

DL2 est sûrement le plus difficile de la série, mais aussi le plus gratifiant et le plus fou. Alors bon jeu !

Karis, thanks.  We are excitedly waiting the less grainy version.   Brighter too if possible!

 

Merci!   

 

Almost done. Probably a bit brighter without the grain. We'll see. By the way i noticed that the intro file is sometimes a bit darker that the rest. The game is bright enough i think (it's direct from the BRD)

I think HVG released it on this site (HD version). I launched the game only once but i'm pretty sure it was in english. Did you tried this one ?

Can anyone run Daphne in opengl mode using the 1080P videos?  I can only use opengl with 720P videos (not 1080p) but it gives much better quality.

Yeah that's what i said (but in french sorry).

Opengl driver is experimental in Daphne (and Daphne is static since many years). It works in 720P, not 1080P. So i recommend 720P cause colors are better with opengl IMHO. That said i play on a 4K monitor and 720P is still great, so we can live without 1080P...

Maybe Daphne will be updated at some point by someone (i think the sources are available on Github) but let's not forget that the point of the author was to replace existing LD players in real cabinets, so i think it might be against their philosophy.   

 

I had some hopes with the Retroarch port of Daphne, but it's not working really well actually and quite old too i think. Wait and see (or maybe one day i'll crack and take a look at the sources, but i suspect it'll be time consuming).

@Karis

Merci à toi pour les version de DL2 et Space Ace :)

Perso je préfère largement Space Ace plutôt que Dragon's Lair (je n'ai pas encore testé le 2). L'histoire suit un sens logique et les embranchements sont plus évidents. Franchement Dragon's Lair c'est vraiment compliqué, on fait très souvent les mêmes séquences et il n'y a aucune logique car elles sont mises de façon aléatoire.

Le point noir de SA c'est que lorsqu'on loupe une séquence on passe à la suivante au lieu de la refaire. C'est dommage car on passe à côté d'animations sympas et on ne sait pas où on s'est trompé. C'est un peu frustrant.

Je vais tester ces versions 720p même si de base je préfère les versions d'origine en règle générale. Avoir le jeu identique comme à l'époque ;)

Disons que les versions anciennes étaient parfaites pour du CRT, mais qu'avec les écrans d'aujourd'hui, cela souffre un peu.

Après, ce sont les roms d'origine, donc le jeu est à l'identique (même si j'ai quelque chose de spécial pour DL2 dans les cartons).

 

A noter que dans les nouveaux jeux que j'ai réalisé (Fire & Ice et Titan A.E), tu peux choisir ton réglage après un échec (y compris le réglage Space Ace).

With Daphne games you are limited to 1080p & 30fps, limits imposed by the outdated video codec (MPEG-2). Daphne needs MP4 & H.263/H.264/H.265 support to have 2160p and 60 fps... And by now that will not happen...

Maybe not in Daphne, but it will happen soon.
