Daphne/Singe Emulator Fullscreen

Recommended Posts

ok so I have zero experience with daphne/singe emulation.  I got time travel and emulator from a download and its preset up to run.  just click the timetravler.bat file and fires up.  my problem is when trying to run it I cant get it to go fullscreen and really cant find and thing on this.  any help would be great.  I'm running this in launchbox but I just created a fake emulator and directed the exe at the bat file so it fires right up.  so I cant and any command lines under emulator

Ok I am not too up on Time Traveler itself but if you are going through Daphne itself but you find out how to make a bat file for a game by doing this.

Open your DaphneLoader.exe click the Configure button and go to the Advanced tab. The bottom drop down menu "Display command line", set this to Enabled, click apply and ok. Now when you start that game it is going to popup with a bunch of text, select it all and copy. The game will launch but just exit back out.

I have done this for several Daphne games to generate batch files and they all work. Here is the batch file I have for Dragon's Lair

daphne.exe lair vldp -framefile H:\Emulation\Roms\Daphne\vldp\lair\lair.txt -blend -ignore_aspect_ratio -blank_searches -precache -min_seek_delay 1000 -seek_frames_per_ms 20 -homedir H:\Emulation\Roms\Daphne -fastboot -bank 0 11011001 -bank 1 00100111 -nocrc -noissues -noserversend -sound_buffer 2048 -fullscreen -x 1600 -y 1200

so it not exactly daphne from what I understand(there is no daphneloader.exe in the folder), I have that emulator also.  this is daphne singe emulator that in the folder, it wont let me open the daphne exe it says I have a bad command line then if I just click the bat file it loads the game.  ive dealt a little with the main daphne emulator but ive never seen this before

I realise this is an old thread, but the topic is relevant, so rather than starting a new one ...

I've got American Laser Games working well. I have one glitch. When I use the -fullscreen parameter I get no audio. The Daphne log says:

--DAPHNE version 1.0.10
--Command line is: daphne.exe singe vldp -x 800 -y 600 -fullscreen -noserversend -framefile singe/crimepatrol/frame-crimepatrol-cdrom.txt -script singe/crimepatrol/cdrom-crimepatrol.singe

I can run them in a window with sound no problem. Then the log looks like this:

--DAPHNE version 1.0.10
--Command line is: daphne.exe singe vldp -x 800 -y 600 -noserversend -framefile singe/crimepatrol/frame-crimepatrol-cdrom.txt -script singe/crimepatrol/cdrom-crimepatrol.singe

Would someone know what I'm getting wrong, please? Thank you.

I have never gotten around to setting up SINGE so might be a bit different, but looking at my Daphne command line I would try a couple things:

  1. move the -fullscreen flag before the x and y flags. 
  2. if that doesn't work, try moving the fullscreen and x,y flags to after your framefile reference.

Thank you for the suggestions. Unfortunately they didn't work. When I change to -fullscreen_window I get audio, but I also only get the top left corner of the window, even with -x 800 -y 600. It's an odd one. I've also tried using -volume_vldp 50 to try and set that at the end of the command, but no joy. Very odd.

Sorry I can't help with the sound issue.  But for people using standard Daphne I will point out that you can run daphne fullscreen windowed, rather than fullscreen, by using DxWnd.  Anything that goes hard fullscreen on a smaller resolution than my desktop, personally, it drives me nuts :-D.

Maybe this will help someone....

 

Create an Emulator called "American Laser Games" point it to a .bat file called "American Laser Games"

Ensure the .bat contains this line...

daphne.exe singe vldp -scanlines -noserversend -sound_buffer 2048 -fullscreen -x 800 -y 600 -opengl -framefile singe/%1/%1.txt -script singe/%1/%1.singe

 

When importing the games, import the "gamename.txt" from within the \singe\gamename\ folder

Emulators\American Laser Games\singe\timetraveler\timetraveler.txt  <---- Import this as the game

 

My folder structure is:-

\\Launchbox\Emulators\American Laser Games\singe\timetraveler\timetraveler.txt      <--- This is called by the %1.txt above AND what you import as the ROM

\\Launchbox\Emulators\American Laser Games\singe\timetraveler\timetraveler.singe     <----- This is called by the %1.singe above

 

The above command is suitable for the following "American Laser Games"

Crime Patrol, Drug Wars, The Last Bounty Hunter, Mad Dog McCree, Mad Dog II The Lost Gold, Ninja Hayate, Space Pirates, Time GAL, Time Traveller and Who Shot Johnny Rock?

 

PS/ The Daphne.exe used for American Laser Games is NOT the same as the one used for Dragons Lair etc

Thank you for responding. I'm using a similar approach but I have a .bat file for each game. I tried you -sound-buffer 2048 but still no sound with -fullscreen. I might work for someone else though.

I will see what my setup does if I remove -sound_buffer 2048 and the -opengl entry.   Maybe both are redundant I am not sure.

\\Launchbox\Emulators\American Laser Games\  contains the following on my system... (if you need to check .dll files).

image.thumb.png.f71d4e667e33fdbdbdf64a8e64afe3af.pngCould it be a .dll that is needed ?   Your error log says WARNING: Audio device could not be opened: DirectSoundCreate: No audio device found which is rather odd given it managed to find it when running in a Window.

The following folders are totally empty..

data, framefile, ram, roms, videos
