Here it is. Intended to run on Raspbian Jesse. Tested on RetroPie 4.5 for Raspberry Pi 2.

https://github.com/Shmoopty/daphne-pi

The commits are commented. First commit produces the original source, verbatim.

So far, I’ve left out all my source code changes, as they don’t likely affect the end result.

I threw a quick and dirty but readable build script together, so these commands alone SHOULD produce a runnable binary on your RPi.

$ git clone https://github.com/Shmoopty/daphne-pi.git
$ cd daphne-pi
$ ./build-daphne.sh

Takes about 15 minutes.

Then with no games available, you should be able to run the minimal GUI with the “no laser disc” command line option:

$ cd daphne
$ ./daphne lair noldp -nohwaccel

You’ll see an error message that the tiny lair ROM file is missing (not the same as the big laserdisc asset files). ‘Q’ to quit.

Possible its leaving the framebuffer in an unusable state upon exit. It’s pretty common when launching some things from emulationstation. Generally we pipe things through the runcommand script which helps with that. I’d have to test it myself though to verify.

That sounds likely. Completely black screen, but I can SSH in and see that emulationstation is running, while daphne is not.
