Quick status update about CD-i Emulator 0.53: CD-i Fan had some problems with upgrading his PC because Visual Studio 6 has problems working under Windows 7. His older CD-i Emulator development builds didn't even work under Windows 7. With the new Visual Studio 2010, he could try building CD-i Emulator again! Read the full article at his CD-i Bits Blog. CD-i Fan: "After finding the single source line that generated the 300+ errors I got on the first build, it appears that I now again have a working development build of the most recent CD-i Emulator, optimistically labeled v0.5.3-beta1. It seems to run like a charm, doing 50/50 frames on non-FMV titles and even 34/50 on my FMV test cases. Wow!
Using Visual Studio 2010 means that the minimum system requirement is now Windows XP, as earlier Windows versions are no longer supported as C++ build targets. But I don't think that should really be a problem.
At the end of next month it will be five years since the original CD-i Emulator v0.5.2 public release; I'm hoping to release 0.5.3-beta1 before that."
CD-i Emulator 0.52 was released September 29, 2005, which was the first and still only public release.
[Thanks, CD-i Fan]
