Hello

I just downloaded the beta version and was going to download dragons lair 1 and 2 and space ace however I am wondering if the Digital Leisure version that I have is compatible with beta 1, as I know it's not supported in Windows XP only 98 however it does load so will the scan of my CD allow me to play the download versions?

Also I have already converted the CD files so I can play the games anyway, so this version going to be the same as mine or better?

Lastly I am using version 99.7 on my arcade machine and have all the frame files, mpgs, oggs etc all configured and running perfectly, I am a bit wary about putting the new version on it as my front end calls Daphne to load the games and I am a bit worried that the new version will mess with all my current installs of the games, namely when it finds I already have the games will it try and download updates that are not needed as I have no CD or DVD rom drive installed in it only network.

Thanks in advance for any help

Cheers
Shane

It won't work with CD's only DVD's. I guess I should add a FAQ entry about this at some point.

Copying the files to a DVD won't work because the files on the DVD are compiled completely different than the CD version. They also have different names. For instance, the CD version has a hole bunch of files and formatted using a lower grade video. The DVD version only has like 10 files (I can't remember exactly since I don't have the DVD's anymore *sigh) and are in a totally different format.

Hi Matt

Ok I decided to buy the box set (the one that everyone recommends that you can play on DVD, X-box Ps2 PC etc), I hope this will decrypt the files which are downloading now, anyway I have noticed that there are versions of Dl, Dl2 and space ace being distributed under the label blaze these are much cheaper and I could have go the three DVD games mentioned above and also drug wars, who shot johnny, crime wave, mad dog mcree and mad dog mcree 2, for less that I paid for the box set.

Heres an example of the said bundle

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/dragons-lair-1-2- ... dZViewItem

However I resisted just in case these versions would not be able to decrypt the downloaded versions, just for future reference and a guide to anyone else that wants to pick them up cheaper, whats the situation with these versions?

So will it be possible to buy these versions to decrypt the downloadable games via DaphneLoader and save a few quid at the same time, it won't affect me now as I already paid for the box set but it may save others some hard earned cash, Can you shed any light on this please...

Cheers

Hello Matt

They certainly look legal from the screen shots of the boxes, the same as the DL stuff apart from Blaze written across the lower front of the disc cases...

Anyway from your response I'm glad I went for the recommended DL 20th aniv.. edition, already downloaded the files & gonna collect from the PO in the morning, can't wait...

I thought I'd ask the seller this as he has sold the last lot via buy it now and has got another auction up for the same stuff, anyway heres wot I asked....

Hello are these disc authorised by Digital Leisure & if so can they decrypt the downloadable files from Daphne loader?

Awaiting response...

You may not get a reply on the second part of your question unless the guy uses these disks for such a purpose.

You'll have to ask a friend to read the help thread on setting up DL, Space Ace, and DL2.
