Popular Post Karis Posted October 25, 2020 Popular Post Report Share Posted October 25, 2020 (edited) Hello everyone, i'm proud to announce the launch of Singe 2.0 designed by Scott Duensing. For history, Singe 2 is the successor of Singe, a dll for Daphne allowing to adapt/create laserdisc games. Singe 2 is no longer dependant of Daphne. It is a standalone program (for Windows 32/64, Mac, Linux) and many games are already available. In this thread i will mostly talk about my own releases for Singe, but you can find more on the official website. Singe 2.0 Features: - any resolution/format for games (Daphne/singe was limited to m2v and was experimental at 1080p) - adaptable overlay (Daphne Singe was limited) - No maximum lenght limitation (was 65536 frames) - Better controls (all buttons of the pad usable) - Many more... GAMES: You can find the links for the games on the Singe website. For my own games i provide you this link (i suggest you use it since it's updated as soon as i make modifications/corrections) : For easy maintenance (future updates) I separated the app from the games directory. So you have now to download each game separately. First here is the link to The app + Tutorial + bats: https://mega.nz/folder/gfgHEYCA#RC4_1yJT7IAhI9YC5fMEnQ For now here is the list (just put the downloaded directory in the singe directory): http://www.ystari.com/emu/chantze.png - Chantze AND Triad Stone: HD port from a new source based on the original Poiu's work (credit to him) Difficulty: 2/5 Link: https://mega.nz/folder/sKgS3A7K#T-stpGn42wvmVCj4pyAyYA http://www.ystari.com/emu/cliff.png - Cliffhanger: 1080p Adaptation of the Classic.

Difficulty : 3/5 Link 1080p: https://mega.nz/folder/ZGhQkSJS#Im0_0uM7kuRrmqi32xAB7Q Link 480p: https://mega.nz/folder/de5m1QqT#gM42Q14EY0V0N4DWo8JBIw a few notes : - For all those games, you will find an Assets directory, including pictures (logo, cover,...) for you favorite launcher - In order to launch the games, you just need to click the corresponding bat file. GAMING MODES: In the option menu, you can define the gaming mode among: - Normal: that's the classic type. For each failure you lose a life and go back to start of Level/Scene/Move - Life Bar: You've got hit points and lose some for each failure, a serie of good moves will give you some life (this is an easier mode than normal) - Percent: you just play one level and cannot die. At the end you % rate will be determined (this is a good trainer) - Survivor: One Life, No continue, No save, dedicated High score. For the hard boiled players! - Kid: you play with only one button that you need to press at the right time. - Movie: No play at all but you can watch the story peacefully. CONTROLS: 1 or Start : Start the game 5: Add Credits 9 or Right Thumb : Options menu Left Control or Button A : Action Left Alt or Button B : Action 2 (used as feet in Cliffhanger) Arrows or pad : Move Esc or Start+Select : Exit When you're in the attract mode you can push the action button for more detailed controls. In the Options Menu, you can define many things like Starting Level (and Scene) - So yes you can finally play the unreachable levels of DL2 - Number of lives and Death Rewind (read the tutorial for more details). Death rewind defines where the game resets when you die: - Level (most boring option - not recommended) - Scene - Last move (note that this option can be tricky in some games where moves are close to each other) - Next move (like Space Ace, note that this option can be tricky in some games where moves are close to each other) 4/3 VERSIONS: For Asterix, Mononoke, Sucker Punch, Cliffhanger, Fire and Ice & Titan A.E i also made 4/3 cropped versions (if your screen is not 16/9). You just need to put the file in the Movie directory (replacing the 16/9 movie). If you need a specific resolution for your system (lower resolution for example), just ask and i'll consider it. Here is the link : https://mega.nz/folder/MeQmCBRK#FXggSXJUaW3ho60PzaQ7DA 16/9 VERSIONS: For 4/3 games (DL2, TG), i prepared something special, with a bezel. Normally, converting those games to 16/9 means cropping and i'm not a big fan since cropping means removing important parts of the image. The link includes the new video and a new main.singe (in order to keep things like score at the right place). In this directory you can also find a 16/9 cropped version of Titan A.E and Sucker Punch. (without black bars). Here is the link: https://mega.nz/folder/ke403KLD#tV6lZP6BaNJHWlL4JYUH1g 480P PACK: For those with older monitors, here is a pack of the movies+overlay suited for a 480p resolution. This link does not include Singe or the script. Just download them and replace movies and overlay. Please don't change overlay resolution! link: https://mega.nz/folder/If5WCKAa#nhcxUYk4y-FizKCL6udFOg TUTORIAL: With Singe 2.0 you can create your own FMV game. It's not difficult and does not require any programming skills. For this you will find a complete tutorial pdf in the link, along with a "Blank" directory which contains all you need. Link: https://mega.nz/file/tW51lS5J#cG0SBu2_9cb-65hMcXc4nTErEKue_FXZ8eK8ZshjXJk BAT ARCHIVE: This archive contains bat files for 32 games released for Singe 2, both in fullscreen and window version. Notice that i named the singe exe singe.exe instead of the complicated name. Link: https://mega.nz/folder/0XQwAbxa#756YSCWfNAcWfnAMDHEl9w So, i hope you enjoy all of this and don't hesitate to ask questions. I will do my best to answer quickly. AHK SCRIPT: Real arcade cabinet sticks use dinput instead of xinput. For now Singe does not recongnize dinput, but as a workaround, you can use JoyToKey and link some keys to your buttons. Here is a script that will launch JoyToKey, then the game and kill the JoyToKey process when you exit the game (you need to edit it accordingly to the game you want to launch, like a bat file): https://mega.nz/file/0bxkTADC#1Omrx3os2uUN_wDkdKGlA-kidllxZWeWxodO2TC6-yE MENU: http://www.ystari.com/emu/frontendnew.jpg Demo of the menu: https://mega.nz/file/NGgW1YjZ#sLg-n2BHiiyqyCRVl9JTWV7h7dSy1g30V_Kf8mbXUhs If you wish, you can use the singe Menu (windowed or fullscreen) as a laucher for you singe games. If you downloaded the program here, then all the needed files are included for all games (including games released by other authors. If you're not up to date, you can download all the needed files here (just paste them at the root your singe directory, meaning where the singe.exe is): https://mega.nz/folder/gXByQbTJ#qRL1LbiiPsAklX4B2r1a8Q Of course you need the game to lauch it for real.

AUDIO STUTTERING PROBLEM: Some may experience audio stuttering. Msincognito (thanks) pointed the fact that Singe does not like 5.1 settings. So be sure that your audio card is set to Stereo and not to 5.1. That should solve the problem. If that does not work, then try to change Realtek drivers to regular windows HD audio drivers. Also the game might also stutter because your computer has difficulties with the HD overlay. In that case try to set it to LO def (last option of the menu - key 9) Last but not least, some people reported that setting singe.exe to launch as admin does improve things. To do this right click on Singe.exe and choose "Properties". Then go to the "Compatibility" tab and tick "Run as Administrator". Apply, you're done.
