The goal of MAME and MESS is to provide accurate hardware-level emulation of systems, regardless of the performance implications. There are many games in MAME that aren't anywhere near full-speed on any PC that exists currently simply due to accurate emulation of the hardware. Our goal here isn't to make CD-i Emulator obsolete, not by any stretch of the imagination. Typically, MAME/MESS doesn't care about performance, it's a reference emulator. CD-i fans hoping for "better than the real thing" emulation for special video filtering features, netplay, etc. should better look elsewhere (perhaps, CDiemu).
