Thus far, I have not had any takers on my offer. This does not surprise me, but it's ok- hopefully someday a core will happen. Maybe after N64 and Saturn are done... we have Neo Geo CD, I think an Amiga CD32 being worked on; eventually I'm sure someone will take on the CD-I and 3DO.
As a fairly new owner of a LG branded CD-I (the BEST model in my opinion, based on built in Digital Video and a MUCH easier to replace timekeeper, and sleekest looking), I recently got the CD-I Bluetooth adapter and wanted to share some news and advice: I could not get my new 8-BitDO controllers to work with it- I tried my Neo Geo CD ones, my SN30 PRO, and barely got my purple PRO 2 to connect, but it disconnects within seconds. I checked which "SADX" setting to set it to and the best was X for 'Direct X' mode.
Wiimote = no. I wondered how it would work without a sensor bar or candles. Apparently you need the later ones with built in Motion Plus. I have yet to test this.
JOY!!! I dug out my old GameSir-G4s (2.4 dongle and Bluetooth) I normally used as a budget PS3 compatible controller and it paired and works like a champ! The stick and D-Pad both work depending on the SPEED you need to work with the cursor. I finally was able to play 'Thunder In Paradise" better. Not great though- a light gun would be the only way.
I honestly think more people would enjoy the CD-I library if and when a Mister core comes out. The CONTROLS alone (PS lightgun, Genesis pad, etc and finally WIRED) would make a core play BETTER than OG hardware in my view. The Bluetooth adapter makes a big improvement for a real CD-I experience, but it is still imperfect and limited in controller compatibility IMHO- a CD-I core would absolutely shine here...
