A New CD-i Webpage launched today! (update!)

>> Saturday, September 1, 2007

More updates this week in CD-i land with a very surprising initiative of our member RDJNL (you always remind me of AFX) launching his very own CD-i website. True, it's new and empty but the potential is again high! Who will tell RDJNL will finally give us all the information in one place, an aspect various websites have still failed to do. There's plenty of information available and we all know: Once you start, it's hard to stop! Hats off for RDJNL and we will certainly keep a keen eye on it. Details inside ;)

RDJNL: "This summer I spent some time learning how to make a webpage. I didn't know much more than a bit of basic HTML like 'title', 'p' , 'br' etc. But now I know there are various 'versions' of HTML and I learned about CSS, JavaScript and even a small bit of PHP and MySQL. So... it's time for me to build a great webpage! However, i'm out of time: the summer is over and I have to go to work. Obviously, while I was studying, I made a webpage to see if everything worked. I chose to make a webpage about cd-i." So if RDJNL will continue may be the question, let him know below to do so! You can already find some exclusive pins inside and a lot of CD-i cover art. rdjnl: "I initially created this page for study purposes. I wanted to learn more about building webpages. The website is the result of this work. There isn't much content on it yet, but if i have time i'd like to work on it. Feel free to share your comments..."

Update 02/SEP/07: "Sorry...not much content yet." With these words, another cd-i related webpage is launched on the first day of September 20007: this webpage! This page was initially created for study purposes. I wanted to learn more about building webpages. So I started studying HTML, CSS, and some JavaScript. The website launched today is the result of this work. As a matter of fact, this website is hosted on a PHP enabled server. I'm just beginning to understand why I would want to use this. Hopefully I can build an even better cd-i website in the future...!

I hope you enjoy visiting this website just as much as I did creating it! You can already find plenty of cd-i cover art on the 'software' page of this site, but let me make a start with my cd-i story on this main page... Let's start with the beginning: when I got my cd-i machine many years back. To be honest, I don't remember exactly when I got my cd-i machine. But it must have been in the summer of 1995. I happened to find this letter from Philips Netherlands, dated 27 July 1995. Take a look. It confirms our membership of the so-called CD-i Gold Club. If one registered with Philips one received as a gift the cd-i disc Compton's Interactive Encyclopedia for free. We also received the Dutch wordgame and TV Show 'Lingo' as an extra gift. At the time this was a new released cd-i disc, which was given away for free to new buyers of a system to promote the cd-i. The machine I got was the CD-i 450 system. The 'CDI 450 Tutorial Disc' was included in the box. Finally, I also got the Dutch demo disc called 'Alles over cd-i' for free. It was either in the box or it came with the Compton disc. I have forgotten. It was 12 years ago, you know!" More news? Visit "CD-i is Great"!

I just found this page, where you can easily browse through all the CD-i covers and titles. It works far more easy than searching for a picture in the image gallery of Le Monde du CD-i. This one goes in the same direction as the index of, please make it complete as no-one ever did that!

More website news (now we're at it) finally at wednesdays topic "CD-i is still alive! - Many many years after Philips gave up the CD-i and long after their last title was published, it is still obvious that the CD-i community is a very active and resourceful one. Not only the many CD-i related sites prove this, because a couple of weeks ago, a new CD-i game was released. Yes, indeed!" And plus, our own Interactive Dreams is hyped, we can't see that enough!

For these two updates, both surprised me. The CD-i scene has a fairly large website library, and it was even mentioned by Charles that the CD-i scene is full of energy and interested people. That's odd, as CD-i seems like one of the least known retro videogames formats out there. All our regular readers will know I have a close eye to every initiative that is started about CD-i, like the Eigenstart portal, The CD-i Technical Archive, the Philipscd-i page, the Sidewalk CD-i page, but unfortunately all these don't show a lot of life. It's true building a full website is a lot of work! Somehow I feel this autumn will be another busy time for CD-i.... ;)

Nice to see anyone creating a new CD-I website, it always gives new inspiration to CD-I! By the way RDJNL, the software page is very heavy to load, maybe you can make smaller pictures as a pre-view? Maybe my computer is slow, but that page takes a pretty long time to load all the pics, but, true, once it's loaded, there's a big cover library for you! I've never seen those pins also, do you have a bigger picture of them? Keep it alive!

RDJNL, I liked the picture on the top left of this post, which I took from your site and marked it black. Where did you get it from?

rdjnl September 3, 2007 at 8:48 PM  

Richard, thanks for your comments!

I have a slow computer too, so I understand the software page might take a long time to load for some people.

I'll see what I can do about it. I have to use smaller pics or split them up between different pages.

Bas, thanks. I drew the picture myself!

The site is updated again!

Nice update about this "Hall of Fame and Shame" but now Ultra CD-i Soccer is on number one of the Shame list? I loved that game! Have you played it thoroughly? It's not better than Striker Pro, but definately deserves a better spot than Dark Castle (Now that was no good value for money!)

Update by rdjnl: "You may have noticed I recently put Dimo's Quest on number 3 of my cd-i fame list. I think it's a great concept for a puzzle game. I have never seen another game like it. I was very happy to be able again to play 'this' brilliant game, now on cd-i! Visit to read the rest!
