Thanks you.  I’ve tried whit low res overlay, but audio and video remains choppy...

No problem, I love it anyway.

Except for mononoke, for all other games I still use singe which handles them well. I will try on linux. Has anyone tried how it runs on raspberry? Cheers

 

Choppy audio could be caused by your audio driver. And if there is choppy audio, then the video has to be choppy cause it syncs on audio.

It's apparently usual with Realtek audio cards. Some people replace it by an audio generic driver.

 

Actually for my arcade (which has a Realtek audio) it was not stuttering, but sometimes lagging a bit. Since i updated my audio driver i don't have problems anymore.

The words "playable trailer" remained, I think it needs to be removed. Thanks for the wonderful work!

Ah yes, thank you!

So guys, tonight is a good night :)

I had a (minor) behavior bug since a long time, really rare so difficult to track.

 

I think i got it this time. As a consequence i changed the main.singe to version 2.13 in all games except Cliff and DL2 (which are not concerned)

 

If you want this new file without redownloading, here it is (it goes in the script directory of each game)

Careful: NOT for Cliff and DL2!!!

Does the SuckerPunch (complete version) main.singe also need to be changed or is that already correct? Thanks.

All the games are now corrected so if you just dowloaded it (i mean after i posted this message), you don't need to correct. 

A goo way to check is the version number on top of the main.singe. 2.13 is te good one.

Alg games need the new main.singe too? I ask because they are way different to the rest.

No no.

Just for my games except Cliff and DL2 (which i will convert at some point).

Actually i did the frame relative almost for you :)

Yes the limit is 3+Title. Not so simple to add, so try to stick with 3, anyway it's just attract movies, 3 should be ok (they're turning with rankings, controls, special controls, trophies, etc...quite long)

Hello,

 

Please not that Cliff and DL2e now accept Percent mode.

Also Cliff is converted to the last version of the program (DL2e won't because it has too many differences, but you don't care it works)

 

Next meeting on Friday, with a FINAL update for all game (it will be a tiny download) AND a last surprise before i take extensive vacations(i will still answer questions of course, but i'll do music instead of games for a while)!

Me neither. But we record and send on Youtube.

That's not like playing for real but at least we're doing something. Takes some time though and i can't do this and real job and FMV games at the same time.

You need to edit controls.cfg in each game. Try to replace gamepad_0 by gamepad_1

Percent mode is a new gaming mode.

In this mode you play a whole level (and just one). You cannot die even if you make mistakes. At the end there is an evaluation (percentage) and if it's good enough you enter a high score.

It's available for all games now. You just need the script files, but, as i converted Cliff for this, you'd better download everything apart the video for this one.

Yeah. First it's a really cool way to discover a level.

And a really good trainer too for the most difficult games.

Because normally you learn move by move but here you've got an overview.

It's challenging too because you won't like missing a move, i swear.

I had the idea because of Sucker Punch, which is Hell on Earth ;)

 

To sum up i think it's a really new and interesting way to play FMV. My testers really like it they're doing contest actually :)

Awesome ! Did not try Sucker Punch yet and it makes me laugh when I hear you say it's hell on earth because to me Cliff and DL2 are really tough...but I'm still a rookie in FMV land :D

That's normal. They are both really difficult games.

 

DL2 is easily the most difficult of the trilogy (original rom, there are no scenes, you have to redo the level which is generally 35 moves long).

Cliff has a lot of short inputs (ninja level for example). Many are shorter than those of SP.

 

But both Mononoke and SP are long, with more possible moves (Hold, Shoot). 

 

at least, you can now play any level/scene for all those games (and that was not possible on the original arcade of course). If i recall it well on DL2 i arrived to the Egyptian level with not too many quarters, but never saw the end at this time ;)

Ah ah !! Never played the actual arcade machine, only bad conversion on computers like the Atari 1040ste. I say bad because I never figured out how to pass the first scene of the first Dragon's Lair game lol

 

But now thanks to your work, it's possible and in a better way than ever so thank you, mate ! :-)

I'm having an audio and video problem. It seems like all the video and audio is running in fast forward. I am not using Realtek audio. I have video and audio coming out of the HDMI on my Geforce  GTX 1080 TI card.

Btw guys, if you don't want to modify every "controls.cfg" for every game, just delete them in each folder and just keep one in the singe2 directory, modify it as you want and it'll work with every games then ;-)

And again, great work Karis!

Never heard of.

But most MSX games are really easily emulated. Including Laserdisk. I think there's even a Esh version.
