Version 0.5.3-beta1 of CD-i Emulator released!

Post by cdifan » Sat Oct 09, 2010 10:52 pm

I have just released the first public beta of CD-i Emulator version 0.5.3 for Windows, the first update after the original September 2005 public release.

A number of existing CD-i title compatibility problems have been solved for this version and a number of new CD-i player models are now fully or minimally supported.

Important new features added for this version are the following:
  • - Support for CHD disc image files (compatible with MESS/MAME)
    - Support for writing AVI, PNG or WAV files
    - Support for controlling the CD-i pointing device with the keyboard
    - Support for recording and playing back CD-i input events
    - Support for online CD-i title and player compatibility reporting
    - Proof-of-concept support for MPEG playing on Gate Array MPEG cartridges
This version of CD-i Emulator incorporates source code from MAME/MESS used to support the CHD file format and the writing of AVI and PNG files.

More information can be found on the CD-i Emulator website, in particular the Release Notes section. The beta release can be downloaded from the Downloads section; don't forget to read the README, HOWTO and RELNOTES documents included with the emulator!

Any questions, comments, etc should be posted to this forum, where the answers will be useful to the entire user community.

Have fun!

Tried it out, it's working more or less fine for me (audio desync and 3-minute limit are killing my reviews and Wand of Gamelon playtime). We just need this ported onto the Wii, LOL.
