Hypseus Singe is a fork and SDL2 version of Daphne. It includes support for SINGE simulation.

Hypseus is a sibling of Daphne.

Hypseus is essentially the Daphne codebase, so will run original ROM sets to give authentic emulation of Daphne supported games. There are features added to Daphne that allow display enhancements, in SDL2, over the original version. These allow it to support enhanced 4k MPEG-2 video in all games and support multiple screens to mimic the original hardware scoreboard for instance. Support for integrated bezels, hot-pluggable GameControllers, better lightgun integration and, with the 32bit upgrade on the VLDP, support for the full range on Singe 2 games (previously Singe 2 video length could cause issues). Hypseus now also runs a full 32bit overlay on all Singe games, this can be reverted (as per original Daphne Singe 1) to an 8-bit overlay via command line arguments. The diversity of overlays allows Hypseus to run Singe games which are far less resource intensive on SBCs, such as the Raspberry Pi and its kin. This also, in certain users eyes, provides a more authentic Retro look to the games over the modern 32bit versions. Singe 2 and Hypseus Singe are aimed at different audiences both in hardware and aesthetics... Gameplay, in both, is identical.
