Dragons Lair enhanced version

Post by cool_factor » Fri Mar 19, 2021 4:04 am

Running 3.x.1. Downloaded both dle11 files and the dle21 file from official source and trying to get any to work. Shortened dle11p file name to just dle11.zip edited as usual and get game to show up in attract but never launch, what exactly needs to be done to add these special versions?

Side note, on regular version of DL how do you disable scoreboard?

Are you getting a readme11.txt error saying it's altered? I am for 1.1 at my end... didn't alter anything though... I have had it working before... not sure whats up there but from my end it sounds like it needs a diff text file in the zip. I just used old copies from my HDD, same as I would have used before...

DLE2.1 works but isn't in the aml file so isn't picked up by the rom scanner, for me 2.1 drops the annoucer audio for some reason.... but here's a new aml file to add 2.1: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1GLlDAr ... sp=sharing just stick it in /boot/launchers/aml/ and overwrite the old one.

Space Ace Enhanced works fine as far as I can tell.

EDIT: I was using the L version of 1.1 the P version would complain it didn't have the L files as well as the same textfile error. Both were renamed to dle11.zip and tryed seperately.

I deleted the log file before I read it but it was some type of error. I renamed file as well. Hopefully an easy fix, not a fan of 2.1 (which I haven't tried on Arpicade only pc)

I just read the error on screen. Didn't actually check the logs.

In case you're missing something simple... You have the framefiles for the regular game there too, right? They're needed. You need to not rename the framefiles, keep them as normal.

You only rename the zipfile for the enhanced versions, check /boot/launchers/aml/daphne.aml for the right names for the zipfiles (it's late and I can't remember offhand).

tested today. dle11 and sae both work. I used the "L" version for dle roms, renamed file to dle11.zip and basically made dupes of lair and ace but named accordingly (added frame files) and they both worked!
