    Dragon's Lair TG settings

    Are there any other settings taken into account where Dragon's Lair is concerned? It only lists either 3-man or 5-man, but there are difficulty & continuation settings as well. I'm sure someone has asked this before, but I'm having no luck finding it.

    I saw those before I posted. Those are quite easy from what I've been playing on. There's a barcade down the street from me running an all original Dragon's Lair with an F2 ROM set to default (easy 9, then Very Hard). I've been working it over for the past year or so now & was considering submitting a video, but I was wanting a little clarity on the game settings. The simple requirement of 3 or 5 man leaves a lot of room for interpretation.

    This thread doesn't discuss settings per se, but does point how they can affect the max score: http://www.twingalaxies.com/archive/.../t-119870.html

    I wish that my memory was more razor sharp on every discussion that ever took place, but from what I remember years back, I seem to recall discussing the rules on this title possibly with one of two gamers from my referee-days. I checked the scoreboard and neither has a score posted but they have have the recollection.

    Let me try to contact them and see what they recall from years back.

    My exact conversation at the time had to do with what the maximum theoretical score was depending on the setting.

    I was literally just about to make a thread for this.

    The track in question is Dragon's Lair[Laserdisc-Daphne], which is dedicated to Daphne emulator. The track lists settings, but does not list whether we're meant to use 3 lives or 5 lives. This has to be specified or split into separate tracks like it is for the Arcade counterpart. I would love to submit runs in this category, but it's impossible without knowing this.

    Can the track founders please shed light? @swaggers @TWIN GALAXIES

    It changes the game entirely.. because you have more chances to survive.

    Is it running on Daphne emulator? If not, which track were you speaking about?

    The Dragon's Lair[Laserdisc-Daphne] track is also missing these specifications.

    The Arcade track is setup properly for 3 life or 5 life scenarios:
    http://www.twingalaxies.com/scores.p...on\%27s%20Lair

    On the other hand, the Arcade tracks don't specify which revision or any other settings. So, it's a lose-lose scenario with these Dragon's Lair tracks, seeing as there is no consistency with the existing Arcade submissions.

    Quite a shame for such an iconic title.

    The Daphne tracks were all made by me at Daphne defaults so I could get the tracks made while they were free so it is 3 lives on Easy. If you think different settings are more appropriate then I will gladly sponsor a new track.

    EDIT: Not entirely default as no score is default so I added that the score had to be shown.

    Standard Daphne is:
    Rev F2
    Strobe: Accurate
    Fast: Disabled
    2 credits per
    3 lives per
    Easy

    I had a feeling this was the case, but I needed to clarify. There should probably be two tracks that each specify 3 or 5 lives.

    I will use the existing track at 3 lives as it was intended though. Thanks for the info.
