[Arcade PC] Star Blazers (LaserDisc)

Recommended Posts

Hi,

Using Karis work (and adding a little bit of code ;-) ) I "emulated" the StarBlazers lasergame.

I have not implemented the mouse use (not too much difficult to do, only too time spending) but I replaced mouse clicks with other controls, maintaining the total event's number.

The other sections (random ones too) are fully emulated, using the correct timing taken from some videos found on the web.
Unfortunately, the source video is not an hi-quality one, so I have not inserted the cockpit's overlay (another easy thing to do).
Feel free to modify timings and other things...

Please share this file, as I dont'know how many days I will keep this link active.

 

VERSION 2

 

Added the original choice level scene (with original crooshair too) using mouse, and the changes in the latest Karis code.

Enjoy!!!

 

Hi,

someone pointed out that he prefers to play StarBlazers without the mouse use (i.e. no choice level)....

 

Well, setting       choiceMode=false         in setupgame.singe  it's possible to bypass mouse use

I have a request to make. I use a front-end that from command string starts singe games. your game is divided into two folders so I can't get it to start correctly. I'm trying to copy the various files in the folders and change the configuration files but the game doesn't run properly. Can you change it for me? Thanks

Depending on how you have setup the front-end, one folder goes into the roms folder (the one with bigger folder size/ video files) and one goes into daphne_folder/singe/. Now either create a custom bat or in the /singe/starblazers rename fai.txt to starblazers.txt and setupgame.singe to starblazers.singe. Or only move the folders (don't rename files) and place the starblazers.bat into the daphne_folder and link that to front-end.

 

Explaining it is a bit difficult because there are so many different ways to place and run daphne singe stuff.

Merge the two folders in one single folder named StarBlazers then edit starblazers.bat:

 

daphne.exe singe vldp -opengl -x 1920 -y 1080 -fullscreen_window -noserversend -volume_vldp 64 -volume_nonvldp 32 -sound_buffer 2048 -framefile starblazers/fai.txt -script starblazers/setupgame.singe

 

The modify the MYDIR string in setupgame.singe

Ok...I merged the 2 folders together and made one folder call Starblazers. How do I edit the bat folder?? I know nothing about editing. I double clicked on the bat folder and it disappears instantly. If I right click on it I dont know what to do. Please help an idiot out. Thanks.

I know that much but what I'm I editing? What am I changing to get this to run? I dont see a daphne exe file or anything similar. Please tell me what I need to "edit". Thanks. Plus is this a stand alone game or is it running through a emulator?

it runs in the daphne singe emulator.

 

You can get the daphne singe from my master thread that has all of the laserdisc games.

 

I'll get it working on my system and either upload a new bat file for you or tell you what to edit.
