Still no ETA at the moment, but we're working on it every day. Currently working on a major overhaul to the CD-ROM command processing chain as well as adjusting timings for each individual event. Currently we have fixed all the Resident Evil titles and Gran Turismo 1 is fixed, and we found the problem with Gran Turismo 2 causing corrupted graphics. Final Fantasy 7 also seems more stable (but it will need more testing from the public). X-Multiply as well as Blazing Dragons also work fine now.

Currently working on Crusaders of Might and Magic. What's funny is that no emulators out there emulate this game correctly at all (except for XEBRA and the Sony DTL-S2020). The game runs okay because the emulators process the command chain quick enough to hide the problem.

We're also hoping that our new fixes will finally get Jackie Chan sorted, but we'll see :)

As you can see, the timings are still off for Jackie Chan, but we're getting there :roll:
