In this post I collect the videos I make of the homebrew CD-i projects. For now, we only have one homebrew project on CD-i: Frog Feast. Recently the creator of Frog Feast posted a demo of the upcoming CD-i game, our test results are posted below.
July 9th: This is a test video about the Chaos89 CD-i demo which was made in June 2007 by Rastersoft, the creators of Frog Feast. I used a CD-i 490, which you can see in the video. After starting the CD-i, the Chaos89 intro is loaded with a turning text on screen. That's the only thing available. You know what this means? New CD-i programming in 2007!
July 14th: This is the first demo fully playable: Our conclusion: It plays perfect! No slowdown, it's as fast as the other versions, the loading times are short. No complains here. Tested on a CD-i 490/00 player. Just excuse me for the terrible video quality, my camera had some troubles following the television screen ;)
rdjnl also tested the demo with the following remarks:
1 If you let the frog jump to the left, from the leaf on the left, then the frog 'moves outside the screen'. Does this have to do with differences between PAL/NTSC and/or 3:4/16:9 ?
2 It seems that it is impossible to pause/end a game, and to exit the disc.
3 The game over screen in two player mode shows a dark green computer frog.
