I have all the episodes on ntsc vhs tapes. I even bought an USA tape player on ebay US to watch them  roll eyes
My idea is to digitalize them and make them available for download  Cool
I also have Space Ace cartoons  
So stay tuned  roll eyes  Tongue

Will you allow some of us to purchase these copied onto a DVD, especially if we pay for shipping and materials?

Hi Stormyblade,

At the moment, I still not have time to convert the NTSC tapes to DVD oppps
I'll do it once I'll get more time, and of course, I'll make the files available on this website or send directly DVD on request Cool

Hope to see you around

Hey guys,

I'm a video editor by profession and I'd like to offer my services  Cheesy
I could also make them PAL or keep them NTSC and if you supply material I could add in easter eggs and special features on the DVD.

All I'm after are copies of the episodes  Cool

Unsure if you know, but I am the one that finished off MY version of Cliff Hanger
See here: http://www.cliffrestored.zoomshare.com/0.html

Let me know as I am happy to help out in anyway  Cheesy

Hi Dexter,

I'm currently on work for the Space Ace cartoons digit  Smiley

As I said, I got from ebay in america a brand new US video tape player, only for playing all the NTSC tapes I have and also an ATI All in Wonder 9800 NTSC version graphic card to digitalyze all of them...

Thanks Dexter for your help anyway  Smiley

My idea is to make all the episodes available here for download. If I have to much trouble to convert them, I'll  send to you on DVD the .AVI source files on DVD, and let you arrange all the stuff on DVD ?

I'll let you know asap  Smiley

Thanks also for link this website on your site too  

So stay around   Cool

No probs, if I can be of ANY help let me know.

I was going to run the footage via a TBC (Time Base Corrector) and colour correct them if needed (as NTSC can be washed out at times) And have them available for download and on DVD. So like I said, let me know if I can help out in anyway  Smiley

As for the link on my site, no probs at all  Tongue  Great site and I LOVE the 'Road Trips' that's just a great attraction to the site.Anyway, I'm looking forward to seeing the cartoons, I never got to see Space Ace but I did see a few Dragon's Lair ones (What would you do?)

HI All  roll eyes

THIS IS IT  lol  lol  lol

As you can see, an episode is now available for download  Tongue

As I said, I have all episodes ( also Space Ace, you'll happy Dexter    ), they will be ALL available here soon, I promise.

Here's the story  roll eyes  :

- Got on ebay US ntsc tapes with all DL & SA episodes more than 3 years ago...
- Got on ebay US last year an NTSC video tapes player/recorder
- Got on ebay US last year 2 NTSC video capture cards

for some reasons, my main capture cart 'ATI All in Wonders 9800' doesn't work for capture anymore   Evil  Evil  Evil , so I've used a cheapest one, an HAUPPAUGE wintv pci...

I captured the episode in the best resolution possible for that cheap card : 720 x 480 in RGB 24 bit in AVI with the application WinTV2000 from hauppauge.
The result file for about 20 minutes of capture give me a ...35 GB file !
Then I used Virtual Dub to compress the AVI file into a DIVX file, with a desinterlace filter to remove the artifcats from interlaced video.
The result is a 124 MB file.
I choose that size file in order to host all the episode on Dragon's Lair Fans website, so I have to make a compromise between quality & size... roll eyes

In action :



Maybe some suggestions in order to improve quality for the coming episodes ?  roll eyes  Cool

Ummm, maybe I missed it but WHERE can you download/view that first episode?


And...Dexter...any way some of us can get that restored version to replace the original and use it with the Daphne software? If so, how?

Don't worry Stormyblade, you don't miss anything... all the episodes available yet are in the MEDIA - Videos page on the website homepage. Only two available for download yet, but ALL will be available here, I promise  Smiley

On my tapes, the episodes are not in the correct order, so that's the reason why I don't put them in the right order  roll eyes

Have fun... Space Ace is also coming very soon  roll eyes
