Does Daphne run enhanced versions?
I was very delighted to finally get Daphne working and running Dragon's Lair and Space Ace on my Retropie (RPi 3b) today (although the absence of the score display is a shame).
But I see that Daphne also supports the Enhanced versions of both games by the Dragon's Lair project:
I grabbed the ROMs and popped them into my Retropie Daphne folder but they didn't show up in the ES menu. Does anyone know if they're supported, and if so how you get them to work?

DLE21 should work with RetroPie's Daphne, it certainly did on my system.
Did you follow the instructions in the Docs? One common mistake is to put the game as a zip file in the
daphnedirectory, but you have to extract its contents and put them in a file structure as laid out in the Docs.
If that doesn't fix your problem, please give us the information that's asked for in https://retropie.org.uk/forum/topic/3/read-this-first.
@clyde I did what it says in the docs. The zipped ROM file (dle21.zip) is in /home/pi/RetroPie/roms/daphne/roms and the folder containing the video files etc is called dle21.daphne and contains dle21.txt, lair.m2v, lair.ogg and lair.dat.
I also have this in /home/pi/RetroPie/roms/daphne/gamelist.xml:
<game> <path>/home/pi/RetroPie/roms/daphne/dle21.daphne</path> <name>Dragon's Lair</name> <image>./media/images/lair.png</image> <video>./media/videos/lair.mp4</video> <rating>0.8</rating> <releasedate>19830601T000000</releasedate> <developer>Sullivan Bluth Interactive</developer> <publisher>Cinematronics</publisher> </game>

@superfella [nevermind, was a bizarre Pi crash, sorted now]
One other Q - is it possible to have both normal Dragon's Lair and the Enhanced version playable at once without duplicating the giant .M2V file? Is there some way of making a shortcut to it from the other folder?

The part from the gamelist seems to be okay, could you show us the whole file, please?
As for the m2v, you could link it from one directory to the other, but actually, there is an easier way. Just put the path to the one existing file in both txt files. So, if
lair.daphne, the txt files should contain this:
. 151 lair.m2v
../lair.daphne/ 151 lair.m2v
Mind the different first line of the files. It tells Daphne where to find the file listed below, where
.means in the current directory, and
../lair.daphne/means one dir up, in lair.daphne.
If that doesn't work, you could hard link the files in RetroPie's command console (everything behind
#is a comment):
# change to the daphne directory cd /home/pi/RetroPie/roms/daphne # create a hard link to lair.m2v ln lair.daphne/lair.m2v dle21.daphne/dle21.m2v
Mind that in this case the dle21.txt has to contain this:
. 151 dle21.m2v
