Can you imagine it's been 16 months since the first public release of CD-i Emulator? The first days were pretty hectic with loads of CD-i fans downloading the trial version for free. It was a very special day in CD-i history, because, after the failing attempts with Pete's CD-ICE project, this was the very first working Emulator for CD-i games. The past months we've seen several members asking what's happening with the current version of CD-i Emulator? We all know it doesn't yet allow Digital Video Support, but the fact we are able to emulate great games like The Apprentice, Pac-Panic and Super Mario's Wacky Worlds ofcourse is reason enough to keep interested in this project! Recently the author of CD-i Emulator posted some hints about upcoming events, including emulating Digital Video and enhancements like keyboard support. "I expect to resume serious work on CD-i emulator early 2007, but it's hard to make promises. But by all means hang on to those games, or at least keep disc images of them; MPEG support is still in the works..." Delays including a wonderful baby born, we wish cdifan all the best :D "I still have some tax forms to fill in and after that I hope to have time for CD-i Emulator again..."
