Re: CD-i 210 IC bridge cable and PSU question

That is the System ROM chip (part 7240 in the datasheet), the wire bridge shorts the A0 input (address line zero) to GND, which makes NO sense. This should make the player not boot and might coincidentally damage the 68070 chip (part 7210) that drives this address line. Unless a board trace is cut s...

Re: Fan asks for "Philips CD-i Classic Mini", Philips answers: "We will try our best"

It is unclear who currently owns the licenses to the games, many appear to have been sold separately by Atari or its parent companies in recent years. Of course, it depends exactly what rights were sold... I think Philips does still have software licenses for CD-RTOS, which is really all they need i...

It would have been a different team, because the creators (both programmer and graphics designer) of the original Apprentice had long left the company. This was probably the reason that Philips got cold fe...

Re: Remade: The Apprentice for PC

Just watched the entire video... really *really* good work! :) :) We know it here, but perhaps you should add to the YouTube description that everything is based on the original sprites, graphics, sound effects, music and level maps? Still an awesome piece of work, in particular knowing as I do that...
