[Arcade PC] Titan A.E. (Laserdisc - Complete game)

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

Here is the release of Titan A.E. (Daphne Laserdisc Emulator release).

 

It is based on the movie Titan A.E. released in 2000 by the legendary Don Bluth.

Don Bluth is the infamous author of the Dragon's Lair saga and that is the reson why i choose Titan A.E.

I tried to find the best possible source but there is no Bluray existing.

 

The final project features 7 levels (the teaser being a bonus) with 482 moves and around 33 minutes of play. The game is filled with bold actions and beautiful pictures.  

 

For now, the game is delivered in 2 different resolutions : 1280x720 (original) and 1280x960 (4:3).

I've got other resolutions, they will be released soon : 1920x1080 (but no opengl), and 640x480 (for arcade machines).

 

Unfortunately, the 4:3 versions are cropped, because the original format is cinemascope. I did this to avoid huge black bars, and it's still playable, but you will lose some parts of the image. So i recommend the 720p version.

 

Several new features in this release, including : Save slots (and autosave), Diagonal moves (mostly for flight sequences) and a map demo (check the menu). 

For those developping games using my tutorial, i created a changelog (see below) and will adapt the tutorial soon.

 

The game is ready to play, just unzip it and click on the bat file. Hit Left Control to see the controls (Pad and Keyboard). Hit F2 to access the save menu.

Note that there are several bat files in the 720p version. Choose the one corresponding to your screen resolution. I

 

General tip : if the image is really too big for your screen, you may have a windows PPP issue, read the posts below to solve it.

 

Let me know if you have any trouble and Have fun !!!

Beautiful simply beautiful! Using material from none other than Don Bluth is both a perfect nod to the genre and total genius!

Please keep up the excellent work!

Does anyone know how to reduce the size of the screen? Its way too big and all I see is just a faction of the picture. How do you make it smaller? Thanks.

It is currently set for 16:9. If you dont have that, Karis said he will be releasing a 4:9 version.

No. Actually, you've got a windows PPP problem :

 

On big resolution screens (e.g. : every screen nowadays) Windows does a zoom to help visibility (it can be 150 to 300%). Modern program can adapt to this but Daphne can't. So you've got to tell Windows to do nothing with Daphne.

 

To correct this you need to right click on Daphne.exe, then Properties, then Compatibility, then click on the "Modify high PPP" button and tick "Replace parameters for Application", then Apply. This should do the work.
