Back to on topic

Show me good ASPI documentation with examples and I'll immediately write w9x-compatible version. (ASPI is fortunately compatible with W2k/XP)

I have searched the net but I haven't found anything useful.

I need example code that shows when you do that, CDROM starts playing audio track X, etc.. NT4/W2K/XP-style CDROM handling is documented in Win32SDK very clearly.

I'd guess some open source PSX emulator or other CDROM based console emulator that is compatible with w9x is good starting point. Any pointers?

BTW: Very first task after installing Windows XP is to select "classic" skin and classic start menu

BTW2: arabuusimiehet.com is down due to HD failure, hopefully it will be back up next monday or tuesday.

Pete Bernert has written a CD Rom plugin for ePSXe, that has an option for ASPI/W9x, maybe he would be able to help you out Toni.

Here's what it say's anyway, hope this will help you Toni

Its done, it was much easier than I thought. Cdex's (cd audio ripping tool) sources helped a lot.

Cd.device emulation uses now SCSI commands (before someone asks, yes, they work with IDE CDROM drives too, ATAPI = subset of SCSI CDROM commands)

Windows 9X/ME users must use ASPI.
Windows NT/2K/XP users can either use ASPI or SPTI (SCSI Port IOCTL, this method does not need ASPI DLLs but needs admin privileges)
Porting to non-Windows systems should be quite easy task.

I plan to release first beta some time after next official WinUAE release (maybe in 3-6 weeks or something)

Joypad buttons will be hardcoded (Configuration GUI won't be ready so soon) to PC's joystick 1 buttons and some keys. (maybe numeric keypad, not sure yet...)

So now it needs...

Well it sounds like this cd32 emulation will rock. but now you need to emulate the nonvolatile memory and the akiko c2p.

To be honest I have been busting for a cd32 emulator as I own more than a dozen cd32 games but have no cd32 to play them on. Oh and if you want 2 games to try the emulator, have a go with Simon The Sorcerer and Super Star Dust.

CD32 CDROM hardware is now emulated! (not perfect but most games, even CDROM controller hardware banging like Cannon Fodder, load without bad problems...)

All CD32 specific features are now emulated:
- joypad buttons
- c2p
- nvram
- cdrom

Beta release date: "in two weeks"

Device level cd.device emulation isn't anymore needed. (Maybe I should change the topic..)

Does this mean that it will work in Windows 9x?

Yes. I tested it with 300MHz K6-2/48MB/W98SE. Of course it was ultra-slow

http://www.arabuusimiehet.com/twilen/uae/cd32/ will have more information soon (if the server stays up...)

I still need to merge new WinUAE specific features to my source tree. My sources are still based on 0.8.17R2 + most patches from 0.8.20 + my own misc patches -> my tree is quite unstable and full of debug crap...

CD32 rom probs

I just want to know whether this rom : kickstart 3.1 (40.060)(cd32)(Commodore)(1993) is the right rom for cd32 emulation in the new winuae??

Or am I barking up the wrong tree here ? I got all these isos, and I can`t try em out.. I`ve tried everything to get this working anyone let me know???

Thanks

Seems to be correct, but you also need extended ROM. CD32 have two 512KB ROMs, another is located at normal kickstart memory area and the other at 0xe00000-0xe7ffff. Both are needed. (extended ROM contains cd device driver, boot animation, cda player etc.. it is basically special workbench "ROM")
