that's expected behavior, the driver isn't 100% functional yet.

Some games work better than others.

Things like Dimo's Quest seem fully playable, others have issues as you observe.

Needs some chips decapping to improve the emulation with any level of confidence.

speaking of decaps.. it would be good to get some more early Data East ones done, afaik they're 'easy' chips (he did a bunch of them before) and in most cases they control significant aspects of the game, which require non-trivial simulations. The Karnov driver, for example, is mostly MCU sim code..

Birdie Try, Kale says there was a pcb sold for $0.01 on ebay a while back, and that doesn't work *entirely* due to the protection, dunno why that wasn't picked up smirk

now back to the scheduled topic ;-)

Which is, as I said in the thread earlier, all well and good, but emulating that particular model of CD-i is a horse of a different color and will require a completely new driver to be re-written. Also likely major bugfixes and additions to the DSP56k core currently in MESS, which - again, as stated earlier in the thread - is something I would like to do less than repeatedly punching myself in the dong.

Edit: And also, SuperRedd, why are you so insistent on playing these execrable Zelda games? You'll probably end up wanting to punch yourself in the dong once you play them, too, so why not avoid the pain?

Actually, I've played them before, and I enjoy them, that's why. I even did an LP (Let's Play) of Zelda: Wand of Gamelon a while back.
