From the previous posts, I guess JD is working on adding back the LCD screen as something you can turn ON/OFF in the Video Options wink

I'm guessing that it's a CD-i Bridge disc, intended to also play on other platforms beside CD-i. Can't remember having heard the term before, though.


I believe a few discs were made to this standard. One I know of played on CD-i and also Microsoft Windows 3.1 or later, it was a disc with models in various states of undress! Another that I vaguely recollect was a disc about 'The Cranberries', not sure if I own this one or not. Might be worth a dig around.

Maybe because IIRC MAMEDEV has a dump of one of those arcade-ified CD-i's? Maybe MAME Plus wanted to add yet another console emulation? I dunno.

MAME already has a skeleton for some CDi based arcade. that's where we took initially the (not working) code for the skeleton in MESS

I found out how to make it work, actually, you only need cdi200.rom. And wait like 20 seconds to boot the BIOS...

Anyway, i played the rare french version of Hotel Mario, it works pretty good, sometimes the sound glitches up, but well, it works !
(Playing with mouse is not easy, but using JoytoKey helps ^^)

Thanks to Devin I can now say that his 9143 cartridge appears to be the AH01 model, even though the stickers on it say otherwise:

However, the low level tests say something different:

Code:
PHILIPS - CDI                   FMV Low Level Test  Rel 1.0


        0. Exit FMV low level test
        1. Writing to a default RAM address
        2. ROM parity check
        3. DRAM test
        4. DRAM test extended
        5. Video Host interface test
        6. Audio Host interface test
        7. FMV test menu
        8. DSP test menu
        9. Pal test menu

        Please make a selection: 2

ROM Id: 03      CSUM0: 46ea
Rel nr: 11      CSUM1: 50ff

Note the Rel nr which is 11, which is in the range for an AH01. Somebody's been lying to us :-) It must be either the stickers or the Interactive Engineer...

At first glance the hardware appears to be mostly functionally identical to the other Gate Array cartridges, judging from the device register accesses made by the drivers.

The edition numbers of the driver modules are the same or lower then the AH02 cartridge; no surprise there.

Hmm, when I boot with cdi200a.rom in CD-i Emulator I have a much smaller delay...

Perhaps my NVRAM implementation is incorrect... any ideas?

You aren't using smf's canned and tested implementation last I saw, that might be hurting it.
