Unexpected news to hear that Pete Dabbs (author of the first CD-ICE emulator) and Charles Doty (author of Frog feast CD-i) have both joined the CD-i MESS team, willing to help and share their CD-i knowledge. Hopefully this speeds up MESS CD-i compatibility even more; Although it's going really fast already! Pete: "It's me, author of the "shocking" cd-i emulator :P Devin has asked me to do an interview for Blackmoon and I noticed on his news page that CD-i support was being added to MESS. As I'm thinking about doing a game for CD-i I thought I'd check out see how it's progressing and offer any help I can. It has been 8-9 years since my emu though so I can't remember much about CD-i internals but I do have the Rise of the Robots source code "somewhere"."
cdoty: "That sound amazing. Please post your progress, and findings to a blog. I would be interested to read what you're working on, and how you are implementing things. I am also tempted to get back into CD-i development."
CD-i is coming back to life! The rumors of its death must have been greatly exaggerated!
