We often forget how difficult and time consuming it is to get CD-i Emulator running CD-i titles. I admire the effort cdifan puts into it again and again. So there's a little news today from his CDi Bits Blog: "Early december I did a little work on rewriting the input record/playback code to its final specifications. I did some work on emulating the I2M Media Playback CD-i board for the PC. This board uses a Motorola 68341 so-called "CD-i Engine" processor chip. The I2M board now successfully boots OS9, including displaying some tracing messages. I also did a test build with Visual Studio 2008, which resulted in a few portability fixes but nothing dramatic. I hope to resume work on the input record/playback code soon which is the last thing holding up the current beta release. [It] hopefully arrive at a releasable beta version in the not too distant future." Lots of details in between can be found here.
