Burn:Cycle for CD-i

Burn:Cycle for CD-i
From: BOISY To: ALL

I just received a new CD-i title (read OS-9 software) called Burn:Cycle.

This game is absolutely amazing. I cannot *believe* the graphics and
animation. And it doesn’t even require the Digital Video Cartridge.

Show this one to your friends. Tell ‘em it’s OS-9 software.

They’ll pass out.

    While it’s true it is OS-9 software, telling your friends so would give the
    impression that you could access such software with your OS-9 computer, and
    not through a dedicated graphics engine. That’s like telling them that some
    of the arcade game machines are OS-9 (which they very well could be, though
    not probable). Not that your statement isn’t true, it’s just a little
    misleading!

    Is it like Road Rash? If you don’t know what Road Rash is, it’s a game
    of racing on scenic public highways for A> Big bucks, or B> Big brusies.
    Ditch the cops and watch out for other competitors. I have heard of Burn
    Cycle. I haven’t heard much though. Looks like my brother gets his CDI
    machine by the end of the week. I’m helping him get his first, then in two
    months I’ll have mine. :) Can’t wait.

    BTW, the model he is getting (and me) is Phillips CLV-220. Wireless
    remote and wire joypad available (plugs in the front), a rather nice joypad.

    We really are trying to get the best deal. It is tough, we were
    promised $550 and five free discs. No the guy isn’t so shure. Supposedly
    he is going to try talking to Phillips. Do you know what kind of promotions
    there are out there? We heard at Media Play that a coupon exists for 3 free
    disks (normal and FMV?).

    Any information from anybody would be much appreciated,

    Dave

    As my late maternal grandfather used to say, “You ain’t a-woofin’.”

    Folks–*Burn:Cycle* is incredible. If I say more, I’ll sound like a
    marketing person, so I’ll just say, in the words of that great movie
    reviewer and philosopher, Joe Bob Briggs, check it out.

    Frank,

    >Not that your statement isn’t true, it’s just a little misleading!

    Huh? I fail to see what’s misleading about it. The fact of the matter
    is that these CD-i titles are OS-9 programs. I fail to expound here
    that it is not a computer as you or I am used to, but I take it for
    granted that everyone here knows what CD-i is.

    Trying to run a CD-i title on your MM/1 would produce unacceptable results,
    I’m sure. But, so would trying to run a K-Windows program under G-Windows.

    I think that telling your friends that the CD-i player is an OS-9 system
    and that OS-9 software is actually on the CD-i disk reinforces the
    versatility of OS-9.

    You know, it’s interesting that we have been so used to having an OS-9
    shell at our fingertips; when we see OS-9 working in its more familiar
    environment (embedded, hidden) we are reluctant.

    Perhaps your perception that my statement is misleading shows that your
    view of OS-9 is a bit more narrow than mine?

    When viewed with the perspective that you are talking to OS-9 literate
    people (such as here), your statements make perfect sense, and the person
    would know what you meant. Talking to a person familiar with other computers
    and possibly NOT CD-I, it
    would be misleading to them. Those familiar with CD-I would understand you
    perfectly though. And you are right.. we do tend to ignore the embedded
    applications!

    Burn:Cycle is not about racing; it’s a common misconception.

    Burn:Cycle is a first person perspective game (like Doom) but with
    all sorts of mini-movies and a good plot. You get/put things just
    like in an adventure game.

    The game is set in the future where you are a humanoid named Sol Cutter,
    who has a computer implanted in your brain. While stealing data from
    Softech, a software company, a virus gets implanted into your neural
    computer. You have two hours to get it out, or your brain will turn
    to mush.

    I have to say, it’s really cool… A warning though: this game contains
    some offensive language, quite a bit of blood and graphic violent scenes,
    as well as some mild nudity. I don’t think I would recommend it for
    young kids.

    That said, it has to be one of the best games of its kind for CD-i.

    ahhhh, memories

    —– there I was, sometime in the middle 60′s, hustling back from
    Albequerque NM to San Angelo TX (trying to get back before the
    First Sergeant at Goodfellow AFB found out I was gone) —

    I hit a patch of oil on a curve and the motorcycle squirted out from
    under me like a watermellon seed. I found myself travelling down the
    asphalt on the seat of my pants at about 55mph — hands out in front,
    still gripping the missing handlebars — wondering what happened.

    THAT, my friend, is ROAD RASH.

    have Zelda? Or know how good it is? Ibe been considering that one too.
    I LOVE Litil Divil! I’m up to the fourth level now…it is really an

    Actually, I ordered Burn:Cycle directly from Philips. They have an
    800 order number (sorry, I don’t have it with me now) where you can
    call and order titles.

    I’ve seen Zelda at Sears. It looks ok, don’t know much else.

    Microcosm looks really cool. It’s much the same as Microscopic
    Mission, but is FMV and has lots of cool graphics.

    I’m glad you’re enjoying your CD-i player dude. If you don’t have
    Burn:Cycle soon, I’ll bring it over when I go to Chi-town in a couple
    of weeks.

    I can’t wait til I get 7th Guest and Kether in the mail (as well as comptons)
    They were all freebies with my system.

    I saw the FVM cartirdige for the Magnovox 450 today for the first time
    while at Best Buy ($249) They also had the Magnovox 550, which is basically
    the 450+FMV cart, + I think a better touchpad controller, for 499$. It included
    Space Ace, and one other disk (Think it was comptons, or Smithsonian)

    Your going to love 7th Guest & Kether. Right now, I’m almost
    finished 7th Guest… I’ll just say that 7th Guest is very puzzling.

    > I saw the FVM cartirdige…

    I hope your getting this if you already don’t have it. It’s a
    must have for the CD Movies & the newer games. By using this hardware
    I feel that there isn’t a computer game that comes close to CDi.

    I agree, 7th Guest must really look bad on the DOS machines. It BLEW
    ME AWAY on CDI.

    Doom is nice though.

    Litil Divil is kinda a dungeon gam. You are a runt Devil called “Mutt” sent
    on a mission to retrieve lost souls from the abyss… There are 6 levels
    to work up through, each getting harder as you progress. On each level, you
    will find pizza, which is used a curency at the shop on each level to buy
    necessary items to complete your quest. There are several doorways on each
    level, that require you to complete some task (combat, figure out a puzzle
    or a skill type thing) after you “solve” the room, the corridor will open
    to another part of the level…

    The graphics are of course great, and it has a lot of subtle humor in it. It
    is pretty difficult to get killed, but some of the doorways are really
    a challange to get past…

    In *Litil Divil*, you play a demon who’s in search of the Mystic Pizza of
    Plenty. (*CDi* says that there’s a sequel in the works, in which he’s made
    it into limbo.)

    Well, yes, but…I’ve seen at least one game magazine say that the CD-i
    version of The Seventh Guest was the best one out there.

    I’ve driven street cycles for the past eight years and have never had to lay
    one down. It’s all a matter of how you think. I KNOW the day will come when
    I DO have to lay it down.. unwillingly. If you make a mistake on a bike, it
    isn’t very forgiving, and it could be your last. You have to respect the machine

    WITHOUT being afraid of it. When you get into a dangerous situation (I had a
    tire
    go out of balance at 100MPH around a curve!! Hair raising to say the least…
    hang on and FORCE it around the curve, and DON’t even try slowing down until
    around the bend..) you can’t afford to get scared. You have to be able to
    rationally ride the thing through. Even if you crash, it MUST be a controlled
    crash. Loose control all the way and you die. Simple as that. Baring that
    I actually feel as safe in traffic on the bike as in a car. Why? I cv
    n get out of or avoid situations you’d just have to let go in a car. And the
    acceleration helps in tight situations also. Just a matter of perspective.
    Oh yes, my latest bike is a GS1000, just so you know I mean SERIOUS street
    bikes.

    I have had plenty of spills on bicycles, a handfull of them at over
    20 mph. When I got my first mountian bike I was turning pretty fast when
    the front wheel slipped on a piece of uneven pavement and before I could
    lower my hand to break my fall I was sliding into home (or rather my bike)
    on my left forearm. That is MY story of road rash. :) I know how to handle
    a bicycle crash though. Most times I have remained standing or even jumped
    from the bike. My old Schwinn Varsity was so rugged I used to crash it for
    fun.

    It doesn’t compare so well with a motorcycle but I like the freedom a
    bicycle has over other in-town ways of getting around. I also like the
    manuverability. I have had three or so accidents with cars but none of them
    were moving. :) I think one reason I ride bicycles so well is that
    there is so little between me and the “surface”. Bike riding is so much
    second nature to me I don’t even think about it. Is a motorcycle like that?

    Frank,

    “Laying it down” is not exactly the total defeat you imply-
    in fact it’s good stuff, given the clothing. Sort of like bowling,
    except you want a split.
    My theory is everyone should be forced to ride a 125 Honda over
    broken terrain a few years before they mount a hog. The lessons
    learned also apply to the clumsy contraptions sold to the masses.

    Rick,
    As one who started on a Hodaka Ace 90 Super Rat and worked my way up to a trick
    Knuckle, I second that! If I hadn’t spent those years jumping plow furroughs in
    the back 40 (along with almost jumping them), I never would have survived
    laying down my 650 BSA at 60 mph on the inside lane of a curve! I trashed the
    bike,
    but saved my a**!

    You are ever so right about the “riding a 125 for a few years”! I started
    riding regular in Japan on an 80cc scooter! Then was looking for a good used
    350 when I got back, but found a cherry 175 twin and couldn’t pass it up.
    Never rode that farther than an hour one way though… just wouldn’t hold
    a steady 70 with me on it! But around town was great. A 250 2-stroke streeter
    after that (it has taken a few 4 hour road trips.. will hold 70 drafting a
    Mack anyway!), the n a 500 2 stroker, then the 1000. I was happiest with
    the 500 though, as an all around fun bike. The 1000 is a bit on the heavy side
    for real twisty road fun… that’s why I still have the 250 street racer…

    Bicycling compares somewhat with motorcycling. A small to medium size motorcycle

    has all the advantage you mention of a bicycle in traffic. A 250cc is great for
    around town and short day trips of a couple hours each way occasionally. A
    500cc is prefect for all day rides for one person. The big ones (over 500cc)
    are really to heavy to throw around through traffic much. I really loved my
    500 (it was 2-stroke.. really quick!), but the 1000 came along when the old
    1976 electronic ignition went out. Suzuki wanted $200 for a new box! And the
    1000 I stole at $400.00 (been parked for 5 years… 1980 model). Just a little
    work and $150 later and it was running great! I put 10,000 mile on it in the 20
    months I{{‘ve had it so far!!

    I logged 1000 miles (yes one thousand) on a bycycle,, 3 speed over
    aperiod of two & 1/2 years in Germany (US Army). Of course I used
    it as one would a car,, i.e every time I went to theh PX (store) EM club
    service club,, or on pass in town,, and occassionally other towns.
    It had a speedometer in K’s.. or I wouoldn’t have believed it myself.

    But, the old 125 was special. I was an enduro idiot at the
    time and somebody had just beat a field of Ossas, etc at a
    Nationals, on the then new (and stone stock) XL125. Strange to
    talk about a hi-torque 7.5 cdi 4 stroke, but there it was
    climbing the muck in second. I wasn’t the purist he was, so a
    few bits and pieces and we had 25 horsepower to go along, in a
    220lb motorcycle (with a 38″ seat height!).
    Talk about a powered bicycle! For about a half hour, you
    could run close to 80, a little more on the easy parts, but one
    day the fastination of doing this with a GVW of 440lbs and 1cc
    over the legal lower limit for freeway vehicles faded.

    Nice dual purpose idea I’d buy into again- the headlight,
    tach, speedo, turn signals and horn formed a sub-assy that came
    off with 2 bolts and a 24? position connector. I’d hide it in a
    bush and go play.

    My brother does abvout 2000 a year (probably more) on his bicycle…. He
    did a ride called BAM (Bicycle Across Misouri) a few years ago, which was 546
    miles in 50 hours… The record for that ride is just under 24 hours I believe.
    He’s planning on doing the same ride in a year or two… I just hope I can
    get another person to help be drive the support van (I had to do that solo
    the last time he did it)

    I ahve NEVER riden in the dirt!~ Well, you can’t really count dirt roads and
    some hard-packed trails through the woods (“tractor roads” as we called them
    mostly) on a street/trail 125 my brother once had. It was more street than
    trail anyway… not like the street legal enduros they make now.. no where
    NEAR that kind of ground clearance! Was made for rough roads and some trails,
    but not all-out dirt!!

    Well, I guess I started it. Somebody mentioned “Road Rash”, and
    it reminded me of an unplanned high-speed dismount from a motor-
    cycle many years ago. It seems a lot of others had similar memories
    and comments.

    This is indeed the OS9 discussion area, BUT it is also a gathering
    of friends, and we often wander off the original subject now and
    then.

    I plead guilty, Mr Thread Policeman, sir, slap the cuffs on –
    I’ll go quietly.

    .. charges dropped, you may go free…

    Hi John,
    I did not mean that as a flame or anything, just a reminder. I can see
    wandering off subject in one or two messages, that is going to happen.
    But, a whole thread of non-subject… I kinda liked reading about
    peoples “road rash” happenings, at first I was amussed. But, it just
    got too reduntant after a while.
    Man I wish I knew what was causing my cursor to move randomly and
    print random, non-english characters. It is mostly dots as in
    the ‘.’. It is hard for me to tell if I have put a period at the end
    of any of my sentences or not. Then if I half oops backspace
    I have to take into account that… I gotta stop I cannot
    tell what I have typed here with all these random characters. I will
    get back to you I am going to log off then log back on to see if that clears
    this up. See ya.

    LONG LIVE OS-9! ** In whatever form it is in!

    Hi John,
    Back again. I just re-logged on and that seemed to clear up the problem
    I was babbling about in my message # 90597. Those random characters were
    gaining on me so quickly that I could not tell what I was typing. It looked
    Like I had been punching keys on this keyboard randomly. I am doing a
    “FOLLOW” on this thread and I am sure that when I get to that message it
    will be displayed just fine. Anyway, I gotta go. I need to hit the Inter-
    net today to see if I can find out about the “NEW” Paramount Network that
    the new Star Trek will be aired on. See ya.
