Hypseus Project / © 2015


Hypseus is a fork of Matt Ownby's Daphne. A program that "lets one play the original versions of many laserdisc arcade games on one's PC."

Some features that differ from the original:

WIP!!! Overlays have not been implemented with SDL2 yet!


Currently there is no documentation for the new build process. Pull requests gladly accepted.

Minimum software requirements: gcc, cmake, autotools, zlib, SDL2, vorbis and ogg.

mkdir build
cd build
cmake ../src


This software intended for educational purposes only. Please submit issues or pull requests directly to the project.

DO NOT submit issues or request support from the official Daphne forums!


Open development by the original author, Matt Ownby, ceased years ago.

My intention for creating this public repository was to clean up the build process, fix bugs, learn, upgrade, and publish to foster collaborative development. The name was changed to Hypseus so the original authors of Daphne would not be burdened with requests for support.

A big thanks goes out to Matt Ownby and the many other developers who made their work available for me to learn from. Without them this project would not be possible.
