Hopefully CD-i Fan will figure this one out in the near future. It hasn't got anything to do with lack of Digital Video support as it was a Base Case title. So fingers crossed Burn:Cycle will get a green light through CD-i Emulator soon!!

It appears to have something to do with the audio drivers, but that's about all I know right now. Could be related to the bug that causes many titles to "hang" at the end of the Philips bumper, which appears to be because some hardware signal is not properly generated.

I've spent several hours on debugging the Burn:Cycle issue before the emulator release, but it seems to be complex...

Could be one of those things where you resolve one issue and then have a Eureka moment that resolves this Burn:Cycle problem!!
