Merry Christmas ! Here is a little gift for you.

 

This is the HD version of the hit title Cliff Hanger which is a mix of 2 Lupin the third movies (Cagliostro and Mamo). The remake was made from the BRD versions of theses movie and i added some (long) treatments to have the best possible image. 

 

This version was made with Singe (as the Daphne rom of Cliffhanger blocks the resolution to 480p). So i remade it from scratch, and took the frame from a playthrough on arcade to ensure they're perfectly placed.

 

The links will give you 2 versions:

 

- 16/9 (which is the original size of both movies) so i recommend this one. The format is 720p

- 4/3 (which is the side of the arcade version, and cropped). The format is 960p

 

For both versions, i removed the tiny black bars top and below. You won't miss them ;)

I may release a 480p version soon for the Daphne users (with the rom of the game). There's a 1080p version too but actually daphne is not able to handle it in opengl, so i delayed it (things may change in the future).

 

INSTALLATION: The files are ready to use, so just download the links and unrar, then launch using the bat file corresponding to your screen resolution (there is a choice of 2 bat for 16/9)

 

CONTROLS: hit CTRL during the intro (let me remind you that in Cliff Hanger there are 2 action buttons : HAND and FEET).

 

GAMEPLAY: The game won't tell you exactly what to do (this is by design). If you see ACTION on screen then you've got to decide if it's HAND or FEET. If you see STICK, then you need to find the direction. If you're lost there are hints (see below).

 

MENU: in the menu (key 9), you can change a few things. I advise you not to change the difficulty (the game is difficult), but you can choose your starting level and scene, and turn on/off hints, hang scene (you will ;) ) and revive scene.

 

Stay tuned, i've got other surprises coming soon !

Have fun and, once again, Merry Christmas !

UPDATE (please download again)

 

- If you choose easy mode in the options, you will see arrows and hand/feet instead of regular gameplay.

- Adapted the moves to the latest rom of cliff (thanks to an anonymous user of this forum for replaying the whole game perfectly)

- Reencoded video files, correcting a few encoding problems

- Corrected 2 moves in level 8

but if you insert, in the options file, the possibility to show or hide the directional arrows and the various keys (hand and feet) to be pressed?  it’s possible ?

Maybe. Not so simple, because it goes against the actual design of the title. So some code to make.

Not so difficult in the end. There will be an update soon.

 

The actual design is perfect and realistic about rhe original arcade, but add features can be improve the playability

Yeah that's a good idea. The "real" game is really hard, lots of very short inputs. 

I made it and it works. You'll have to choose difficulty "easy" and then you'll have the arrows and "hand" "feet" indicated.

I will release that soon. Maybe tonight.

What to expect :

 

- 1080p versions of all my games (no more bug for this resolution)

- 1080p overlay (no more resolution bug for the overlay)

- 2 more levels for Cliffhanger (a kind of "missing link")

- Timegal upscaled in HD

- A new ROM for DL2 (?)

- Better controls (all buttons of the pad usable)

- And even more...

Not me. There's a team behind this and in particular Scott; you might have heard of him.

Looking forward to your 1080p version!  The original 16:9 links are gone, sadly I missed the boat!  Thank you in advance for your work.
