CD32 Boot Selector

If you bought some awesome accelerator with IDE for your CD32 maybe you miss the cd32's boot screen like I do. This util recrates the boot screen and gives you options to -load wb or -boot cd. You can select what you want with your joypad(up/down - fire). There's also 10 secs of a countdown. If you don't press anything it'll loadwb. Load WB simply ends the util and continues your wb startup-sequence. Boot CD simply resets your cd32. So you should first insert CD you want to boot and than press fire.

I'll check this out but worth pointing out that the console will boot to CD first if you put it in before powering on. Still handy though and if plays the jingle from the rom first I'll be very impressed!

True. It'll boot cd if you put it in before power on.
It plays a jingle. Though not directly from the rom but from disk.
When I released it I thought I'm open for update if theres interest.
For example if some graphician would look at the picture pallete he could point me out what range of colours could cycle beside the ones I already cycle...

Does anyone know what screenmode the cd32 boot intro uses? 480i or 480p?i have a monitor which displays this screen beautifully but not all other modes the cd32 uses.

Its interlaced. In modern terminology I'd call it 576i.
