Download Wrapper Daphne 1.0

* * * * * 1 Votes Please vote for the Quality of this Port / Wrapper, not for the Game or Application!

Daphne is a laserdisc arcade game emulator

Personal Notes:
This was created due to a bug in macOS Sierra (and possibly El Capitan) that renders the current (10 year old) Mac OS X beta build of Daphne Loader.app completely silent. This is due to a simple SDL compiling flag missing, but without the original source code, I was forced to create this Daphne multi-launcher.

NOTE: The original compiler of the Mac version of Daphne is long gone, and it looks HIGHLY UNLIKELY that we will ever see an updated build for Mac, so this may be your only hope.

I am marking this port GREEN for all graphics, as the only real prerequisite is OpenGL at this point, and a 10 year old version at that!
Please test and report back your findings...

My System Specs:
- OS: macOS Sierra 10.12.4
- CPU: Core i7-2600
- RAM: 16GB
- Video:    NVIDIA GTX 670 2GB
- Disk Space:   ~560MB without mpegs

Known Issues:
No known issues at this stage. Be careful creating further custom launchers for other games, as making an mistake, or an incorrect exe flag can send Daphne into a race state, and lock up your whole computer. This only happened once, and I had multiple Wine servers running (invisibly). Just create one at a time, and base exe flags on my main example (Dragon's Lair 2) inside wrapper.

Copy your mpeg directory into drive_c/Program Files/daphne-1.0v-win32
Create aliases of the three available custom launchers (assuming you have the mpeg files for them)
My framefile names used in custom launchers are mpeg/ace/ace.txt, mpeg/lair/lair.txt and mpeg/lair2/dl2-framefile.txt
NOTE: I am using a custom Blu-Ray re-rip of Dragon's Lair II, from my Blu-Ray copy... you should be able to use a single period for your framefile if you have the correct file layout.

What's New in Version 1.0 (See full changelog)

  • First Release... tested pretty thoroughly. Updated version to 1.0, not actual changes to content...

I tried installing this on my laptop, and Wineskin didn't work. Required rebuilding a new WS9 2.3 Wineskin wrapper, copying the daphne-1.0v-win32 folder into Program Files, copying the mpeg folder and recreating main, and three custom exe's. It didn't take too long but was annoying...

I have a feeling that wineskin wrappers are signed now? Is that why my wrapper didn't work on another machine?
