This game works with: SheepShaver, Basilisk II,

"Another Laserdisc conversion of one of Don Bluth's cartoons: Space Ace II: Borf's Revenge continues the saga of young cadet Dexter, who tries to free his love Kimberly from the clutches of the evil nemesis Borf. In critical situations, the meek Dexter can transform into his mighty alter ego Space Ace. Thus empowered, he has to defeat Borf's minions.

Space Ace II is a essentially a cartoon strip in which our hero will encounter numerous hazards. You have to avoid traps and enemies by pressing the right key at the right time: cursor keys for movements, Insert key to shoot. You never control Dexter directly, you just choose an appropriate direction. Each of the 27 seconds-long scenes requires one to three keystrokes. If your decision is wrong, the cartoon will end with a death animation, and Dexter will lose one of his three lives. So you're basically trying to keep the strip running. Timing is crucial; you will need to press keys in the exact second. Luckily, you're allowed to save your progress at four fixed points."

Game includes spreadsheet file with working copy protection codes.

The original Space Ace is available in both floppy and CD-ROM formats.

There is also a monochrome version of this sequel.

This was not a laserdisc, but Dragon's Lair II: Time Warp was - and it is easily the best laserdisc game, or game in general. I highly recommend Dragon's Lair II. You can download it via Daphne for free (YES, FREE!!! - he has a deal with the owner of the IP), but be warned - it is over 1GB. There is a dedicated downloader you can use to get the movie files/roms. It works via bittorrent i believe. It is available for Win/OSX/Linux (the PC version runs perfectly via Wine - CLI version anyways)

I checked it with Norton Antivirus and there wasn't anything wrong. These ports were never my cup of tea though.

From "Numerous versions of Space Ace were created for home computers and game systems, most of which attempted to mimic the arcade version's lushly animated graphics, with varying degrees of success. A sequel, Space Ace II: Borf's Revenge was created for the PC mixing new animation with scenes from the original game that were left out of the PC version due to the high amount of memory they comprised."

EDIT: I have a copy of the three disk "Dragons Lair" that has nVirA (backup copy had it). A cursory glance at the contents of this "Space Ace II" archive shows the same layout as DL. It may even be Dragons Lair II, but don't quote me on that. I still think it is a phoney, so if someone wants to risk their install of BasilliskII, please go ahead - I am interested in the results.

use Disinfectant. It should handle almost every aspect of viruses in Classic OS.
