hello everyone ! ( excuse me for my english , i'm a french speaking person ! )

i've been reading this forum since almost a year , and 2 month ago , i decided to build my own cab !
i've already a lot of famous games running ( mamecab , sorry  oppps ) and , i'm on a problem on daphne !
i found dragon's lair and dragon's lair 2 , and they are playable , i'm totally in love , although the 2nd episode is way different than the 1rst !
but , i can't find space ace  Space Ace ! so , i put the question : is it possible to import the game from the dvd that you can run on a classic dvd player, on daphne ?

thank's a lot ! and , excuse me if this forum isn't suppose to talk about this  oppps

okay , thank's a lot !  Smiley
i'll buy one of those !
and , 2 little questions more :
- is it normal that when i run dragon's lair , the game is not always in the same order  Huh?
i explain : sometimes , the first then is the one with the ropes and the fire , but , sometimes it's when the wall is closing himself , i'm not sure i'm clear  Undecided  then the others scenes are not always in the same order !

- is the quality of the dvd best than the video that we can download directly on daphne ? because the game looks way better on ipad !

thank's a lot again !

Yes, see this page on D-L-P website : Dragon's Lair scenes sequencing  Wink

Yes, the Ipad version is the HD version.

First scene= Fire ropes... Closing wall...
Yeah, I think you're playin' the U.S. (maybe the most common rev.F2 ?) version.
Smiley
Don't forget Daphne also emulate "our" EURO versions of both Dragon's Lair and Space Ace !
So when you'll get your DVDs open Daphne DownLoader, select "European" in the DL &/or SA settings, click on "Play" and download the games ! Then you'll have to use those original DVDs to decrypt the downloaded mpegs...

When it'll be all well done...

You'll only have to play !!!

Cheesy

okay , i have a the dvd ! but , now , i don't know how to import it in daphne  confused

thank's !

edit: forget my stupid question  oppps
the dvd runs great on a dvd player , but , daphne doesn't recognize it , i've download the required files , and , when it's searching for the dvd , it doesn't find it !
i must precise that all my "tests" are do on a mac computer , connected to internet , so daphne can verify the files , but , my cab will run on an other computer , which is a pc , and , when i test on the pc , which isn't connect to internet , daphne can't verify the files , and does not run the game !  Cry
 so here's the final question : has anyone's got the  solution  Huh?

Well, If I were you, I would reinstall Daphne directly from you PC computer connected to Internet. I would say you've lost some paths during the mac -> PC transfer, and some directories are now false... It shouldn't be a matter of connected / not connected to Internet IMO.

i've a vldp_dl folder , where are downloaded the files that are download on my mac .
in the subfolder "ace" i've got ace.m2v.bf  ace.ogg.bf and ace.txt
i've transfered the vldp_dl folder on my pc , and when i try to launch the game , it doesn't work.
so do you think it's a directories problem ?
i also test :- put the files in the rom folder , and indicate ace.txt as mpeg framefile , it doesn't work
                - put the files in the rom folder , rename them without the .bf , and indicate ace.txt as framefile , it doesn't work either

some precisions : on my mac , like i said , it doesn't work because of the dvd directory , but it verify the files from internet !
and , i haven't got an internet conected pc !

edit: so , always the same message "this game cannot be run , required files are missing"
but in the log file , something interesting:
Quote
"LDP-VLDP: could not parse video because file ace.m2v could not be opened
 LDP-VLDP ERROR: first video file could not be opened!
 could not initialize laserdisc player !
 shutting down sound system ...
 shutting down video display ..."

Try to read on this link:https://www.daphne-emu.com:9443/mediawiki/index.php/DigitalLeisureDVD
On the DaphneWiki:
"Step By Step: Playing your first game

Here are easy instructions for playing Dragon's Lair in Daphne. This isn't the only way to play Dragon's Lair, but it is the easiest way, and the only way that we recommend. If you want to try other ways to play Dragon's Lair, make sure you have successfully gotten this method working first!

   1. Run DaphneLoader (running Daphne directly will not work)
   2. You may be prompted that a new version of DaphneLoader exists. If so, click OK to automatically update to the latest version. If not, continue to the next step.
   3. You will see a list of games. Click on Dragon's Lair so that Dragon's Lair is now highlighted.
   4. Click the Start button.
   5. You will be warned that a Dragon's Lair DVD will be required. If you don't have a Dragon's Lair DVD, or aren't sure if you have one or not, go read about it here. Otherwise, click OK.
   6. You will be prompted that DaphneLoader needs to download some files. Click OK to begin the download.
   7. The download will take hours or days depending on how fast your internet connection is. Be patient and allow the download to finish. You will be glad you did.
   8. Once the download finishes, you will be prompted to insert your DVD. Insert the DVD and click OK.
   9. DaphneLoader will attempt to authenticate the DVD. If authentication succeeds, go to the next step. If authentication fails, go here.
  10. Once the authentication is complete, you will be prompted that the game is ready to begin. Click OK and Dragon's Lair will start.
  11. You may be prompted that Daphne needs to parse video files. If so, press any key to continue. If not, proceed to the next step.
  12. You will hear two beeps and may see some video playing. Wait for a third beep which sounds different than the first two beeps, then go to the next step.
  13. You should see the Dragon's Lair introduction begin to play where the announcer says "Dragon's Lair, a fantasy adventure...". Insert two virtual coins by pressing the '5' key twice. Then press the '1' key to start the game.
  14. Use the arrow keys and the space bar to control Dirk's movements and use his sword. "

Take a look Wink
