Just wondering a few things

1-Is there a work in progress page? I'd love to keep track of what is in development.

2-How do you get the virtual scoreboard in DL to work? I'm running a ripped version of my DVD-rom and I'm not running it at full screen. I'm sure it's easy but I couldn't find it anywhere in the documentation. If I missed it I apologize in advance.

3-How do I remap the buttons on my contoller? :roll: I use Daphne loader, I go to the configure section but all I see is an interface to remap the keys for my keyboard.

Thanks Matt & the whole team. Daphne is wonderful :o )

We have a to-do list, but it hasn't been made publicly available. Since development is sporadic and unpredictable, having a public list of *possible* develepments would likely only lead to frustration and impatience.

I believe there is a site with beta snapshots of the current CVS source, but this would be unofficial and unsupported...

First, THANK YOU for reading the documentation. :)

It is not currently possible to have both mpeg video and the on-screen scoreboard at the same time. This is a much-requested feature, and *may* be added in a future release. See answer #1 for details. :o

You can, however, obtain an external scoreboard, which is great for in-cabinet use. In fact, someone has made reproduction scoreboards with a Daphne-compatible 25-pin parallel port connection for easy hookup.

At present, the joystick buttons are hard-mapped. (Controller Button 1/2/3 = Daphne Button 1/2/3.) I think you are the first person to ask about remapping them.

If you have a 6-button controller, you will find that buttons 5 and 6 have 'bonus' mappings to Coin1 and Start1. (I wanted this to use this with my cheap $5 gamepad.)


I hope this helps. And thanks for the kind words!

-Warren.

Warren, I know there is no official WIP page but could you at least tell me what's in the works? Additions? Improvements? Thanks
