When everything goes right CD-i Emulator update version 0.53 will be released quickly, according to cdifan. That would mean the latest compatibility updates will be implemented and it's time for us to do new compatibility tests. Moreover cdifan announced some interesting features he is working on, as published in his roadmap on the CD-i Bits blog.
Another confirmation that DVC emulation is in the works. cdifan: "I've been working on support for the Digital Video cartridge. It can currently play the Philips "bumper" movie of a few discs and play some MPEG audio; subsequent MPEG plays have a tendency to crash. This is currently for Gate Array MPEG cartridges only, but the IMPEG/VMPEG cartridges look to be highly similar. It needs to be made more reliable."
One more interesting point to post about is the possibility to save movies from CD-i Emulation. "Support for AVI movie saving has been added using source code from MESS/MAME. This needs a bit of polishing and doesn't currently save audio".
Thanks to cdifan for the news.
