My CD-i vids

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.

That's the first time youtube has footage of the Water World and the Future World!

I love this, Seb, thanks for sharing! I'm sure it was a pain to make this video!

The graphics are amazing on CD-i, but it's so hard, so unfair, so full of bugs, that it takes a lot of time before you get to the end of the game.

If somebody wants a copy and pays a good price: I still have two copies here, brand new.

Thanks guys!

I'll probably put up a video with all the end stages and death scenes soon. I've got them anyway, might as well share the experience, as I don't think they're available yet. I am rather annoyed about the graphical glitching going on from the capture though, other CD-i games don't seem to have this problem.

@Bas: The game is manageable, but I did get really annoyed with how long it can take if you take a wrong turn. I would have loved a featured to turn around, maybe in exchange for some energy or something. I also later noticed that I wasn't truly fair about the pause comment, as going to the menu stops your energy from draining. Something else I noticed, but didn't end up mentioning, was that saving/loading is apparently only possible in one save slot. I made multiple saves before recording in the three different worlds, but ended up having to do the game all over again when I wanted to record. All five slots only had my last save. Technically it's still a very impressive game though and I'm glad I picked it up all those years ago.
