Hi,

My first post on this forum is a question. I just received a DL Deluxe Pack containing DL - DL2 and Space Ace for Windows 95. I downloaded the codecs necessary to play the video scenes. When I start the game, I can see the introductory automatic sequences. When the time comes for the player to "act", the PC screen becomes black and the CD stops a little while after. The game does not go further.

I have a Windows 7 laptop with 4GB RAM (should be ok)

Does someone have an idea ?

Thank you in advance

well, too bad you got the Deluxe Pack version, which is a quite old version by now  confused
The best version to use is this one : Dragon's Lair 20th Anniversary Edition - PC or even better, using that footage combined with the Daphne emulator...
Anyway, can't really help you about running a such old version made for W95 on Windows 7 I'm afraid. Maybe trying to start the game using the right button and select something like 'run on compatible mode' or something?

Hi DarthNuno,

Thank you for your welcome message and regarding this issue, I still have a XP laptop. I will try. I did not know that DL kept surviving after the golden period.

If no success, I will follow your recommendation.
