Anything relating to CD-i can be discussed in this forum. From the multiple hardware iterations of the system to the sofware including games, reference, music and Video CDs. Maybe you hold an interest in Philips Media and the many development houses set up to cater for CD-i if so then this is the forum.

How hard would it be to port over Mario is Missing and Mario's Time Machine to cdi?

It think it may require a good C knowledge.
Memory management is also mportant on a old machine.

I hope programming isn't different on a CISC machine that programming on RISC ones. At high level I mean.

I'm not all to technical but if I remember right those games had multi layered backgrounds that scrolled, and quite fast too, and a bunch of sprites on different layers on the foreground. Can the CD-i handle that?
Check out my YouTube channel for some CD-i reviews!

The CDi can handle a fixed background, you can do like the PC version, since it's all about a pointer.
I'm french, so sometimes my english can be wrong.

Well as far as Mario is Missing goes I was hoping to port over a possibly watered down Snes version since I want to avoid the pc version for the obvious Weegee jokes that would follow

I think I can do it since I would have the help of a former cdi programmer aka that guy I was talking to. He says he could help me

Okay well I am starting work on the port by first doing the animated cutscenes. I need voice actors who can do a good imitation of Hotel Mario voices

I didn't say you could use Weegee, you can still use the Luigi from SMW for the PC port. But you decide.
Also, will be a french version of the game ?
For the french version, i have some voices.

EDIT:You can still use the voices from Mario is Missing Deluxe, and Mario's Time Machine Deluxe, and i have CDs of them so i can get the voices without having music in the way.

Do you have a MSN ?
It would be easier for me to talk about it, and giving you the voices (i didn't rip it yet but i will).
