Essentially, I cannot get any homebrew CDI images to work. I end up at the CD player screen. At first I figured the issue was with the image I was trying, specifically Quake 1 for the DC. I have tried no less than three different ports, all with the same result. I then tried creating my own .cdi image from the source directories...no luck there either.
Some screencaps of the directory structure from these images:
The original Quake 1 port (Titanium Studios)
Programs tried when creating the images manually:
- Boot Dreams 1.0.6c
- BootMake 1.2
Then I decided to try out some of the Doom ports for DC. Again, same issue, whether it was a premade CDI or one I created from scratch. Here is the port (shareware version) if you would like to test: DCDoom-SW-CW-1.4
I feel like I'm missing something here, because surely someone has been able to load a CDI on MODE. And for clarification, I've had zero issues with the rest of my library which is in GDI format (mostly redump).
Thanks in advance!
