  1. Hey all I had been using MAME to emulate CD-i, but it had many drawbacks such as the lack of proper fullscreen, the annoying CD-i text at the top of the screen, and needing to press a button to actually start the game. And I REALLY wanted to play Mutant Rampage Body Slam, which couldn't load in MAME. So I went off to try the CD-i Emulator, and unfortunately it has neither keyboard nor gamepad support, and controls are restricted only to using the mouse. And switching it to fullscreen requires actually clicking options in the menu bar. And it's not even really fullscreen, it just maximizes the window. AHK and JoyToKey to the rescue for a proper fullscreen + gamepad solution! Please refer to the Launchbox-specific instructions below. Download CD-i emulator Download JoyToKey Look for and download the required BIOS cdimono1.zip Download the file attached to this post Extract everything to the same folder Ensure cdirunner.exe, JoyToKey.exe, VistaAPI.dll, cdi200.rom, cdi220.rom, and cdi220b.rom are in the same folder as wcdiemu-v053b3.exe Rename wcdiemu-v053b3.exe to wcdiemu.exe. This is to ensure this AHK app doesn't need to be edited and recompiled if the emulator needs to be updated to other versions in the future. Launch JoyToKey and configure a profile for CD-i with the following button mapping suggestions Configure a new emulator in Launchbox, set it to cdirunner.exe Ensure your CD-i ISOs are in ISO format, for some reason I couldn't get this to work with BIN+CUE or CHD. IsoBuster is my tool of choice to convert the CD images to ISO Import your CD-i game of choice to Launchbox, and enjoy! FEATURES AND RESTRICTIONS Both the original AHK source and the EXE executable are in the ZIP file The CD-i emulator will launch in proper fullscreen, like all other normal emulators The EXE was created using AHK2EXE, and is designed for 64-bit Windows only. If you're running 32-bit Windows, you will need to use AHK2EXE to recompile the AHK script to an EXE executable Press ESC to exit the emulator and kill all the associated processes, so there's no need to manually configure the Running AutoHotkey Script for the emulator in Launchbox All game file names must be one word, i.e. "Hotel Mario.iso" must be renamed to "HotelMario.iso" or "Hotel_Mario.iso" CDI Fullscreen.zip

  4. So I have been trying to learn more about CD-i Emulation, and it all seems to boil down to the paid CD-i Emu and MESS. But this info is years old from what I can see Googling it. Anyone know of anything new? Also, I looked up MESS and they say it is incorporated into MAME, but MAME mentions nothing of it. Any help guiding me into the right direction would be great!! Thanks!
  5. So I am trying to get The Philips CD-i machine emulated in MESS/Mame but for some reason I am getting an error message while trying to load a game. It's telling me "sorry to play this disc your cd-i player must be equipped with a cd-i digital video cartridge" what exactly does this mean and how can I fix this issue?
