CDi - more testing

Alice in Wonderland
Seems to have issues with the inputs? Tutorial tells you that you can use a button to enter doors / interact with things, but they don't seem to work

Also locks up when '4' is displayed during tutorial. If you start the game you can just move left/right around the world

Jokers Wild
Seems perfect.

Axis & Allies
runs, but appears to use an unsupported video format when drawing the title text animation (see shot 3)

Severe in-game lag when it changes between the mini-videos, leaving the entire ui unresponsive for several seconds at a time while you're trying to make decisions.

I'll bet the third input bit that has a special meaning in graphics tablet operation actually functions as a third button. There's possibly even a fourth during normal gamepad operation. I'll see what I can do.

Excellent, I've been trying to find a game with unsupported graphics modes, I'll see what that's trying to do. If you can find a game that actually uses RGB555 mode, too, that would be stellar.

Probably the same issue that causes Myst's display to freak out during the transition when turning to the left or right, but to rectify itself once the transition is complete. I've been meaning to look at that, too.

If you could concentrate your testing on games that have graphical issues rather than lag or audio issues, that would be extremely helpful as well. Lemmings is currently unhappy with something to do with audio, as it only plays the first couple sectors' worth of background music before dying; I expect that the same thing that's causing this could be causing several of the audio issues you've described.

Family Games 2

Some of the minigames work, others have issues. This one 'Room Service' seems to have problems with moving up (only left/right/down work) There is also some graphical corruption as you can see.

Hmm .. A CD-i game that doesn't suck! It actually has good art, nice animation and smooth scrolling!

The image I converted was a bit weird tho, and I get no music (and I think you need the digital board to get SFX because it just says SFX N/A in the menu)

Still.. that was a nice surprise

in fact it requires the "Digital Video Card" for sound effects and various graphics enhancements...

More Mac progress. And this is all real emulation - Basilisk II patches out the input, video, audio, and disk drivers with traps up to HLE native code, so they're doing a lot less than MESS is smile
