Considering the size of the CDs and how many other files I have on my main card this core using the secondary SDcard would be great.
You could run from an external USB hard drive or mount a CIFS share.
I run all my files from my NAS. :D

I am using a 128Gb sdcard and might have to resort to that considering the frequency of new cores
being added.

Sega cd and pce cd would be so awesome. There are so many great games on each. I wonder why it is so hard to develop cores for the cd consoles?

cd drive emulation and in the case of mega cd, custom hardware.

I keep looking for updates on any start to CD games on the MiSTer, but now it seems the github link is dead? I've been holding off on the expensive SD version for my real NEC hardware in hopes of this. I'd love the TG16/PC-Engine mini consoles to surprise everyone and really take off to numbers that get Analogue to REALLY notice.

Hi

I deleted the github repo, due to different reasons I lost interest, at least for now.
I believe ElectronAsh may have been doing some work on it but has been busy with other stuff, you can follow his github repo.

Please forgive my ignorance on who is the creator of the current PC Engine CD core work. Will the source code eventually be out there for others to pick up if the interest otherwise stagnates?

If you want to work on this, go ahead and do so. Nobody is currently working on this in a capacity that will ever see it finished.

Just to reiterate what Kitrinx said:

ElectronAsh has not made a commit to that Github in months now. He has many projects and is very busy. If someone is inclined to see this happen and has the motivation and capability to do it, they should go for it.

I certainly have zero complaints with any FPGA project and love checking on the updates. I see ElectronAsh's github shows preliminary work on cores for Jaguar(!), CPS1, GBA and MIDI devices. That is exciting. I have zero experience in core creation and hope one day I will have the time to delve into it.

From what ash has mentioned publicly, he is going to pick up PCE CD in the future. He is enjoying in Glasto now, I won't expect him to see these posts now till that's over. Also he has quite a few projects in the pipeline so expect delays I guess.

Another vote for CD support. I found a pack called the Peacock Project and now have a huge list of CD games I'd love to play on the MiSTer. 8)

With the newly released Sega CD core, I'm very interested in the technical side of what code can (if?) gets ported to the PCE-CD code. I love hearing stories of how an arcade chip is done, and now that gives a head start on that other arcade board and it's also used in x computer, etc.
