Original posting Information:

 

I don't know how many of you guys have been keeping an eye on the Hypseus project, development

seemed to have stalled for some time in porting Daphne to modern SDL2. This project has looked to

move it forward.....

 

I will be tracking it here.

Thanks Hypseus Singe runs timegal Singe v1 perfect for me on my pi4 using your instructions here I'm just wondering how do I update to the current latest version of Hypseus Singe.

Do I redo the complete install process again or just parts of it ? 😵

@MadMax4Q2

 

No need to reinstall, make sure you are using version 2.4.2 though for cool need Singe joystick [mouse] feature  ;) 

 

For Singe 2 games you have to do a little work, but just another folder in your ROMS directory as with all other Singe games:

 

See details here: https://github.com/DirtBagXon/hypseus_singetwo_data

 

If you are replacing the existing timegal, just rename the old timegal ROM folder and drop the new one in its place.

 

Multiple versions:

 

Use 'timegalv2' in hypseus_singetwo_data repo above.

 

If you want to run both, completely possible, you will need to alter the LUA singe files on new timegalv2 to reflect new directory name:

 

Search for all instances of singe/timegal in .singe files in the new v2 folder and change to reflect directory like this:

 

dofile("singe/timegalv2/framework.singe")
dofile("singe/timegalv2/globals.singe")                         
dofile("singe/timegalv2/main.singe")
dofile("singe/timegalv2/map.singe")
dofile("singe/timegalv2/hscore.singe")
dofile("singe/timegalv2/service.singe")
dofile("singe/timegalv2/toolbox.singe")

In v2 folder rename main singe/frame files to reflect game name changes:
 

mv timegal.singe timegalv2.singe
mv timegal.txt tiemgalv2.txt

 

For instance I have 'timegal.daphne' and 'timegalv2.daphne' folders, but had to alter the LUA singe files as above - works perfectly.

Thanks xxOToTOxx really enjoying Hypseus Singe at the mo. Sorry to ask a dumb question but I'm quite new to using pis & retropie setup, I'm pretty sure I'm using an older version as I did a fresh installed of Hypseus Singe a few weeks ago now so what is the best way to upgrade to version 2.4.2. Also what is the best way to check to see what version I'm currently running, again sorry for the noob questions 😅

@MadMax4Q2

 

Run a game, then do `cat /dev/shm/runcommand.log` from ssh. This will show you the version of Hypseus Singe near the top.

 

I have added a means to get the version number easily on recent versions, but that's the only way on earlier ones.

 

If it's before v2.2.0 will be easier to follow the removal directions at the bottom of the RetroPie README and start again.

 

If it's later that that (and presuming you didn't remove the repo src directory), ssh into the pi:

cd hypseus-singe
rm -rf build
git pull origin RetroPie
mkdir build
cd build
cmake ../src
make
cp hypseus /opt/retropie/emulators/daphne/daphne.bin

To check new version is installed after this:

 

/opt/retropie/emulators/daphne/daphne.bin -v

Thanks for that xxOToTOxx :very-good:

 

I'll give it a go later once by little boys off the arcade cabnet. I plan to eventually get all compatable Daphne/Singe games working on it through Hypseus Singe. Liking the lightguns now work with joystick part with your newer version.  Hypseus Singes run mostly everthing I've thrown at it so far but did notice Fire and Ice (Singe 2) last night had a few issues like attract screen flashing through out of sequence scenes eg menu select, a "input your name" image when you lose a life (but no place to actually input name?) and overly large sprite icons. I did as a you advised here under Resize PNG's but when it came to:

 

Run convert_png.sh script within 'original' subdirectory.

./convert_png.sh

I got a permission denied and when putting in sudo ./convert_png.sh it does not recognise command. I used Gimp to batch resize the pngs to 50% via windows in the end which seemed to work.

 

Will let you know how it goes later when updated.

 

 

Thanks again your Daphne/Singe really is a game changer on my pi4 arcade1up modded cab. :)

./convert_png.sh

 

 

I misread: You only need to do this convert if you are porting a new game yourself, if you use one of the directories from the repo, this is already done ;)

 

convert.sh is a tool in the root of the repo, you would need to copy it to your directory.  IF you needed it ensure you 'chmod 755 convert_png.sh' before you run it: ;)

Gimp works just as well, the script just did a 3x reduction calculation for you.........

 

If the sprites are too small now, you reduced them twice.

 

Can I ask if you fix up particular game sprites or other elements for Singe 2 games in the repo, that you fork the repo and create a pull request so everyone can grab the improvements.

I'm sure there are many....

 

I am hoping it's a collective porting effort.

@MadMax4Q2 "Liking the lightguns now work with joystick part with your newer version."

 

This is good to know, I don't have the ability to test, but basically if SDL2 UP, DOWN, LEFT and RIGHT keys are passed through (including) keyboard they should work.

 

Technically "joystick/lightgun/trackball/keyboard" should all work.

@MadMax4Q2

 

I am unable to replicate this, where in attract mode are you seeing the issue ?

 

I could be an encoding issue with timing and frames, check your fireandice.m2v with the following command:

mediainfo --Inform='Video;%FrameCount%' fireandice.m2v

I had convert_png.sh file in original subdirectory maybe thats not the right file to run the command then I'm still new to pi, doh 😅.

 

Okay so tried checking the version by the cat /dev/shm/runcommand.log command using Putty to ssh while Fire & Ice was running on pi and got this:

 

pi@playbox4:~$ cat /dev/shm/runcommand.log
bash: /opt/retropie/supplementary/joystick-selection/js-onstart.sh: No such file or directory
Parameters:
Executing: SDL1_VIDEODRIVER=dispmanx SDL_DISPMANX_WIDTH=1920 SDL_DISPMANX_HEIGHT=1080 /opt/retropie/emulators/daphne/daphne.sh "/home/pi/RetroPie/roms/daphne/fireandice.daphne"

ERROR : current mpeg has too many frames, VLDP will ignore any frames above 65535
ALSA lib pcm.c:8424:(snd_pcm_recover) underrun occurred

 

So went ahead with removing Hypseus Singes to get the latest version as advised by:

Revert to original Daphne plugin

 mv /opt/retropie/emulators/daphne/daphne.bin.orig /opt/retropie/emulators/daphne/daphne.bin
 rm /opt/retropie/configs/daphne/hypinput.ini /opt/retropie/emulators/daphne/hypinput.ini
 rm -rf /opt/retropie/emulators/daphne/fonts

 mv /opt/retropie/emulators/daphne/daphne.sh.orig /opt/retropie/emulators/daphne/daphne.sh
 rm -rf /home/pi/RetroPie/roms/daphne/singe
 rm /opt/retropie/emulators/daphne/singe

 

But when I started the process of installing again I got error messages stating cant the create dir and files as hypseus-singe is already there so deleted /home/pi/hypseus-singe dir to be sure older version was gone and started the re-install process again and all seems to of went okay...

[console] v2.4.2-RPi

 

I had to add  /opt/retropie/emulators/daphne/hypinput.ini as was missing but all works fine now.

 

Will be using method you said for later versions for future updates 😁👍

@MadMax4Q2

 

All looks good. The '/home/pi/hypseus-singe' part was the repo you originally downloaded, so you were correct to delete it, so again all good.

 

You have some weirdness here:

 

bash: /opt/retropie/supplementary/joystick-selection/js-onstart.sh: No such file or directory

 

Not related to hypseus install now or previous, just some RetroPie warning I guess.

 

I am no RetroPie expert, but had lots of help from the guys in their forum as they were after Singe plugin for some time. But I am a long time Linux user.

 

You did all the correct stuff :)

 

So now you need to look at the Fire and Ice issue..... I used the the video from the Kangaroo Punch download, be interested if Karis updated the video later.

 

The Daphne VLDP player is 16-bit so has a 65535 frame limit, which is why some of the longer Singe 2 games don't, and won't, work with Hypseus Singe.

 

sudo apt-get install mediainfo 

Then use: mediainfo --Inform='Video;%FrameCount%' <filename.m2v>

 

Fire and Ice was originally a Singe 1 game so was under that limit unless Karis has extended the game on the forum downloads..... 

 

TitanAE was also originally Singe 1 and under this limit, but has now been extended for Singe 2, I am trying to find the original Singe 1 version, but seems to have gone....

 

I got the 4K video of Cobra Command from LizardKing working with Hypseus Singe - which is cool as previous Daphne's didn't support this, more luck than judgement on the SDL2 upgrade. Also Hypseus has updates that give support to files larger than 2GB, so no need to split, again an improvement on Daphne.

 

See the forum link,  but did the same ffmpeg video conversion as for Singe 2 games on the 4K Cobra Command .mp4 LizardKing posted....

This might be the Fire & Ice video issue I'm having as I've been using Karis 4x3 mp3 files here then converting to m2v using ffmpeg:

Recode Singe 2 video files for Hypseus Singe

ffmpeg -i <original>.mp4 -an -codec:v mpeg2video -b 4182k <game>.m2v
ffmpeg -i <original>.mp4 -vn -c:a libvorbis -ar 44100 -map a -b:a 160k <game>.ogg

Using command within fireandice folder:

pi@playbox4:~/RetroPie/roms/daphne/fireandice.daphne$ mediainfo --Inform='Video;%FrameCount%' fireandice.m2v
 

comes back with:

-bash: mediainfo: command not found (I don't think I'm ever gonna get used to linux systems anytime soon 🥴)

 

So heres media info from MPC:

Heres screen pics of some of the issues:

Wrong background on scoreboard

This is the only screen which shows when you die

 

Also after a continue ends screen quickly cycles through all death screens and game menu screens and on end of every 2nd attract cycle.

You would need to add mediainfo to the Pi sorry: 'sudo apt-get install mediainfo'

 

But even without that I see the issue right there:

Duration                                 : 45 min 32 s

vs

Duration  :                                45 min 42 s

Different video, so framefile timings will be different.

 

As my shorter version was 65524 frames (so close to limit), I guess the extra 10s will have taken it over that. Mediainfo will tell you.

 

Grab the Kangaroo Punch version.

 

Regarding the font sizing, that is just a byproduct of downsizing the overlay. You could try and find a different font or maybe play with the font blending/sizing in the LUA:

 

framework.singe:FONT_QUALITY_SOLID   = 1
framework.singe:FONT_QUALITY_SHADED  = 2
framework.singe:FONT_QUALITY_BLENDED = 3
globals.singe:fontQuality(FONT_QUALITY_SOLID)
main.singe:     fontGame = fontLoad("singe/fireandice/font.ttf", LINEW*2)
main.singe:     fontLCD = fontLoad("singe/fireandice/font.ttf", LINEW*2.5)

In fact I have just added timegalv2 to the repo, so just use that and ignore the latter part of the above post.

 

How do I tell if the timegal I have is v2 please (Or any Singe v2 for that matter)?

They have completely different overlays:

 

V1910275-time-gal-arcade-screenshot-mother

 

V2:singe2.png

 

"(Or any Singe v2 for that matter)" - Singe 2 games tend to have subdirectories in the structure if looking on disk:

 

/Sounds/victory.wav  
/Cfg/default.cfg  
/Assets/snap.mp4  
/Movie/Timegal.mp4 
etc...

Singe 2 games won't work in Hypseus Singe without porting, hence: https://github.com/DirtBagXon/hypseus_singe_data

 

You can grab the V1 versions of some games from here: https://archive.org/details/@dirtbagxon

@MadMax4Q2

When you get the correct rip from Kangaroo Punch video, ensure you grab the latest files from the repo, they fix the font issue:

 

fireandice_service.png

 

Thanks to Karis, the TitanAE rip should also now work as reverted to Singe 1 state, ensure you read the README.md file in the titanae directory on how to rip the TitanAE video correctly.

 

Again make sure you use the Kangaroo Punch archive.org video for TitanAE:

Singe1 will be 'jack' and 'dragon' the others are Singe 2 and have issues due to extended frames.

I put comments in the README.md of each directory in the repo if applicable.
