This feature allows you to emulate the read speed of a CAT-R disc using a CAT-DEV and requires Bridge firmware 00.14.70 or higher, which is included in the Host Bridge software starting from 18.104.22.168.
To enable the feature, you must go to the CAT-DEV web page by entering in the IP address of the CAT-DEV into a web browser.
After you are on the home page, you should see a button labeled Disc Emulation. After pressing that, you will be redirected to a page that has various disc emulation settings, including time emulation.
To enable the time emulation, press the button labeled Enable Time Emulation and likewise to disable it, press the button labeled Disable Time Emulation.
To use the time emulation feature, you must run an application via
cafediscrun, running a wumad, or uploading a wumad.
cafex discrun <Path-to-RPX> cafex run -e wumad:<Path-to-Wumad> cafex run -e h:<bank> -e mcp:launch_hint:odd <Path-to-RPX> cafex headlessrun <Path-to-RPX>
cafex headlessrun. However, when running an application with
cafex discrunor cafex run -e wumad, it is recommended that you direct connect to your CAT-DEV with a static IP address to eliminate any network interferences with the timing. Please see Direct Connection
To manipulate the time emulation on the fly, there is a configurable delta value that decreases or increases the global read speed in nanoseconds. A value of -1700000 was determined to be a good medium for a generic setting across the board and is the default setting if no value has been set. However, if you wish to change it, there is a command line tool that can do just that. Do note that negative values increase the read speed and positive values decrease the speed.
mionurl -v <IP> /mion/status.cgi operation=emu_set_ahci_delay delta=<X>
<IP> is the IP address to the CAT-DEV and
<X> is the value to set the delta to.
