CD-i Emulator Compatibility: This section covers crucial details concerning performance of this specific game under emulation through CD-i Emulator. It will state the CD-i Player Rom used during the test, what version of CD-i Emulator was used, which program the Disc Image was created from, specifications of the test PC and also provide screenshots of the emulator in action. Also included is an account of the test and most importantly if the game is playable through CD-i Emulator. Rather than an exhaustive list of tests with various ROMS and different PC rigs it's hoped that this section gives some insight into the progress of CD-i Emulator. For the most recent updates to CD-i Emulator and compatibility it's suggested you visit the CD-i Emulator Homepage.

Details of Tests: The Philips Media title screen appears and plays with sound accurately and then remains until an action button is pressed. This leads into The Vision Factory title screen where you must press an action button again to get to the main menu screen. Music appears to play correctly and all options can be selected/viewed. Gameplay runs at the correct speed with music, so it appears this game is fully supported by CD-i Emulator.
