[Arcade PC] Freedom Fighter Singe Edition (LaserDisc)

Recommended Posts

Hi,
finally, this is my release of Freedom Fighter.

 

In the source material the video/audio is scrambled all over the LD, with variable speed too, so the reconstruction took about 100 hours or more.

 

Please look at the original material, then judge:

 

The original game allowed a random sequence of the scenes, my version follows a predetermined sequence that will lead you through all levels.

The sequence was reconstructed according to the original LD and the CD-I version (which was missing many scenes), as some sequences/images were rendered by the program and are not memorized in the LD, for the same reason some material was taken from the CD-I version.

 

The game is playable with mouse, no keyboard required, like the original).
In some sections the gameplay is very easy, in others it is very very hard.

 

Shoot when you hear ACTION, and discover the target area ;-)
Move when you hear MOVE, and discover the right direction...

 

To move right, shoot at the right half of the screen.
To move left, shoot at the left half of the screen.
To move down, shoot at the bottom half of the screen.
To move forward or up, shooy at the upper half of the screen.

 

As usual, feel free to modify the code)

 

 

Have fun!!!

This is another fantastic release!! I love the fact that you work very hard on these releases that I NEVER would have thought I'd ever get the chance to see...let alone play. There is nothing like laserdisc games..always been fascinated by them since I was a teenager. Thank you very much for your time and energy!!

This afternoon I will take a look at a problem that a user has after level 2. Sometimes the game hangs at end of that level and this sometimes happens to me too.

I will make a single package too, even if other authors distributed singe and games separately.

In the meanwhile, if stuck at the end of level 2, please set starting at level 3 in the config menu (key 9).

Enjoy...

Ok, Premiere has a bug in coding videos which have been heavily modified with speed control... to repair game is sufficient to replace the file setupgame_mouse.singe in the singe/freedomfighter folder with the version uploaded in the first post.

 

Have fun :-)

No, but I will give you the precise instruction:

1) download the archive and decompress, you will find a "freedomfighter" folder, inside it another freedomfighter folder and a singe folder with inside another freedomfighter

2) download singe archive and decompress it in the first folder of pass(1)

3) download the single, corrected file, and put it in the last folder of pass (1)

Hi, I can't get the game to work. I've tried the tutorial but I always get an error message ("could not load bitmap: etc."). I'm not sure which Singe emulator I should use, since there are two of them: the simple "Singe"  and the "Singe complete" , and I find the instructions very confusing. Could you make another step by step tutorial with clearer instructions?

Thank you!

Hi, follow the first two passes with the singe complete, ignore the third pass.

At the end you will have a folder freedomfighter. Inside there will be two folders (singe and freedomfighter) and a bunch of files, including freedomfighter.bat.

i think looking at the daphne log,,look at 6 line up from the bottom of the log ( Skipped forward 65535 frames (from 26529 to 26528) maybe problem? thanks

Yes, it's a problem related to a bug in premiere pro, used to encode the audio/video. It leads to problems only on some pc (not in mine 😅). Try replacing the file in the singe/freedomfighter with that attached here

setupgame_mouse.singe

First thing, the video is 720x480, not 640x480.

 

I use

daphne.exe singe vldp -opengl -x 1600 -y 1200 -fullscreen_window -noserversend -volume_vldp 64 -volume_nonvldp 32 -sound_buffer 2048 -framefile freedomfighter/ff.txt -script singe/freedomfighter/setupgame_mouse.singe

 

There is no freedomfighter.singe, I hope you only changed the name of the file :-)

 

The game works whitout hangs for me and my friends, with really different PCs, in all levels...

Try modifying the resolution and let me know, in my daphne log, after the Starting singe 1.14 there is

SINGE: Entering initVLDP()

This let me think there is a problem with video, try -opengl
