Turbo/PCE CD?
« on: August 13, 2015, 12:44 PM »
Does anyone know of an existing project for the Turbo/PC Engine CD that would allow games to be run off an SD card or hard drive? Thanks.

Relatively confident in saying this: no current project has been completed

Completely confident in saying this: deunan of GDEMU/Rhea fame is intending to complete one. I think it's next once he's finalized Rhea.

I hope this is true.  It seems like he is getting close to finishing Rhea.

Rhea is more than finished, it's already sold (and even sold out for second batch if i remember well).

The 20 pin Rhea is complete, but the 21 pin Rhea is still in development.

Deunan's most recent update on his site is mostly talking about finalizing Phoebe (and it sounds like he is pretty close to being done).  Towards the end of this update, he mentions that he is hoping to use some of his upcoming free time to finish the next proto PCB for the PCE.  I know that PC Engine SD card mods have been discussed before, but I really like seeing a recent update indicating that it's still a goal of his.  This makes me excited.

New FW for Phoebe ODE owners, this one should hopefully fix the region patching issue. Make sure you’ve named the INI file correctly – some devices tried to open and parse Rhea.ini, this was a silly regression on my part and is not an intended behaviour.
 
USPS shipment tracking  stopped working some time ago – I don’t know why but there’s nothing I can do about it. Same thing happened in 2014 for a month or two but then fixed itself. Might be a bug in their system, might be permanent. You’ll have to be patient I guess, it usually takes 2-3 weeks for the package to arrive.
 
Regarding future preorders: I will reopen at the end of this month but do note that I most likely won’t be able to deliver anything before January 2016. December is a bad time for shipping anyway. I will use that time to get some rest, finally finish the next proto PCB for PCE, and play Fallout 4.
 
If there are no more FW issues I will consider Phoebe mature enough for open sale, though unlike Rhea I only have a few more PCBs left and need to order more first. That means longer waiting time. And speaking of that, I almost got all Rheas done on time but GDEMU list still suffered, there’s always something that derails my schedule and once it happens it quickly escalates. With possibly 3 different ODEs it might get even worse. Because of that I’m trying to find a balance between how frequently I can accept orders and how much at once. I know this causes some of you to miss the window but it’s either that or the list waiting time counted in months. There’s only so much I can do, apparently my devices are quite popular. Maybe the price is too low

For those registered on the PCEngineFX.com forums (registration is free), there's been a recent discussion over there on this topic.
