Item description:

Note that return to menu is now 'LEFT TRIGGER + RIGHT TRIGGER + PRESS LEFT THUMBSTICK'
Exit to Dashboard is 'LEFT TRIG + RIGHT TRIG + START + BACK' on Main Menu
Seektest - Highlight game to seek and press left thumbstick
Added keyboard support finally thanks to latest XDK. Fixed Thayer's Quest, game is fully playable now due to keyboard support. Added prelim drivers for MACH3 and Us Vs Them. DVD-R build finally tested and works perfectly (See notes later).

Thanks to everyone who reported bugs. I have tried to address as many of them as possible in addition to my own to do list. Please see Version History at bottom of the page for info on this release. Enjoy!!

For general help on DaphneX, please visit the website below. Most everything from the PC applies to the Xbox version also.

EvolutionX can cause DaphneX to lockup with IGR enabled. Please turn off IGR in evox.ini before running DaphneX if you have problems.

Game supported in this release:

Dragon's Lair, Dragon's Lair 1.1, and Dragon's Lair 2.0 (100%)
Space Ace, and Space Ace Enhanced V2.0(100%)
Astron Belt (Hitachi & Pioneer) (100%)
Galaxy Ranger (100%)
Star Blazer (not working)
Cobra Command (Astron Belt hardware)
Cliff Hanger + Alternate (100%)
Super Don Quixote (100%)
Bega's Battle (working with some issues)
Interstellar (working with some issues)
Thayer's Quest (100%)
Esh's Aurunmilla (working)
Badlands (working)
Dragon's Lair 2 (All ROM versions 100%)
Space Ace 91 (USA, Euro - Beta Driver)
MACH3 (not 100%)
Us Vs. Them (not 100%)
Recommended Resolutions for Dragons Lair and Space Ace are 640x480, however 720x480 should also work. This is mainly to support DVD-VIDEO mpeg rips. Games with overlays should be generally be 512x480. See the Daphne website for valid resolutions. Resolutions of 720x480 should be considered the maximum for DaphneX.

I highly recommend a single mpeg as the seeking will be faster and the general gameplay experience will be better. Also the DVD-ROM mpegs are not very good quality and have interlacing issues. Keep this in mind, since Daphne can only display as good as the source. The best source is to use your original laserdisc.

Supply .m2v, .ogg, .dat files for the game you with to play. If you have a PC version of Daphne, you are in luck as you can use your same mpeg/ogg/dat files. You will also need to supply the ROM images for the games. For help creating mpegs to use with DaphneX, please visit the Daphne website (

NOTE: The PC allowed you to use whatever framefile you wanted.. I dont have a file selector on the XBOX, so you must use the following convention for framefile filenames...

Dragon's Lair (& alternates) - lair.txt
Space Ace (& alternates) - ace.txt
Astron Belt (& alternates) - astron.txt
Galaxy Ranger - galaxy.txt
Star Blazer - blazer.txt
Cobra Command (all vers) - cobra.txt
Cliff Hanger + Alt - cliff.txt
Super Don Quixote - superdon.txt
Bega's Battle - bega.txt
Interstellar - inter.txt
Thayer's Quest - thayers.txt
Esh's Aurunmilla - esh.txt
Badlands - badlands.txt
Dragon's Lair 2 - lair2.txt
Space Ace '91 - ace91.txt
MACH3 - mach3.txt
Us vs. Them - uvt.txt
Mpegs should also go in a directory following the same convention.


roms\lair - Dragon's Lair F2
roms\dle11 - Dragon's Lair Enhanced 1.1
roms\dle20 - Dragon's Lair Enhanced 2.0
roms\ace - Space Ace
roms\sae - Space Ace Enhanced
roms\astron - Astron Belt
roms\astronp - Astron Belt (Pioneer)
roms\galaxy - Galaxy Ranger
roms\blazer - Star Blazer
roms\cobraab - Cobra Command (astron belt hardware)
roms\cliff - Cliff Hanger
roms\cliffalt - Cliff Hanger (alternate)
roms\sdq - Super Don Quixote
roms\sdqshort - Super Don Quixote (short scenes)
roms\bega - Bega's Battle
roms\interstellar - Interstellar
roms\tq - Thayers Quest

dl2_317.bin, dl2_318.bin, dl2_319.bin,
dl2_316e.bin, dl2_319e.bin, dl2_319es.bin
*where 'e' is euro version, 'es' spanish* )

roms\ace91 - Space Ace '91 - ace91.bin, ace91e.bin
roms\mach3 - MACH3
roms\uvt - Us Vs. Them

If you do not follow this directory system, the game will not work.

You will need to change the first line of the framefiles to the following ****
Dragon's Lair
.\mpeg\lair - make sure your file location looks *EXACTLY* like this with the game name
- replacing lair (ace, etc) for other games.
Copy the tree over to your xbox hard drive. Run DaphneX. Assuming you have the files needed, the game should start up. If something is wrong an error message should appear.


See in game help.. This may change with new versions.

I finally tested DaphneX on a DVD-R. It works fine. Keep in mind that the XBOX Disc media has a file size limitation of 1GB. If your mpeg is greater than 1GB, it wont be readable. Other than this, should work no problems.

Please send bug reports and comments to xbox_daphne @ Check the known issues and release notes before reporting please.

Please do not ask where to get roms, mpegs etc. It will be ignored. If you found DaphneX you can find the rest.
