That's a cool addon - I wish I had a CD32. I recently tried emulating the CD32, and I was happy to find that some community members had converted some great Amiga games into CD32-compatible images. Makes for a great addition to my arcade cab as the controls are consolidated to a standard instead of me having to remap per-game.

That's great to hear. Has CDi emulation progressed at all in the past few years?

I was able to get some CDi games running well (with occasional crashing) using MAME's MESS core by launching the CDi bios/core to run the software package/CHD like this:
mame64 cdimono1 pacpanic
The Pac Panic CHD is located @ C:\Emulators\mame\software\pacpanic\pac-panic (1995)(namco - philips)(eu)[!].chd
It took a while to figure out how to turn off the console LCD emulated screen; You have to do it from the [TAB] menu disabling the screen that is docked at the top by default.
I'm using GroovyMAME so I am able to get 1:1 emulation on a 240p screen resolution (tho it's a NTSC screen so the top & bottom are cut off a little).

I just heard about a new chinese Everdrive GB clone that works perfectly, but is much cheaper than the original.
Here's a video review

Purchase links in the video description.
Sorry for double post, but this is unrelated to the previous posts.

Nice. I always found the N8 save states lacking.

Awesome at Sega CD. Terra Onion going to lower their price?

Yeah, the custom mappers for the PowerPak gave a few slots for save states. I was kind of dissappointed when I got the N8 and found out it was only 1 save slot. But the N8 Pro will have 99 slots per game!

The MegaSD is $270. The RetroRGB link says that the Mega Everdrive Pro will be about the price of the Sd2snes Pro, which is around $200.

I'm kinda pissed though, I just bought a Mega Everdrive X7 because Krikzz had a Black Friday sale. I would have definitely waited for the Pro to come out, if I knew!

Yeah, I already have it and everything. That's OK, maybe I'll still get it at some point down the road.
