PC Engine

The PC Engine is a powerful 8bits Console, the first one with CD-ROM support back in 1988.
Very popular in Japan, the games are so good that sometimes you can think that the console is actually 16bits !
A very pleasant machine to work for, with an interesting hardware design !
You can easily programs games for it using the awesome HuC Compiler !

FastVRamCDLoad / FastSCDRamCDLoad

These routines can be used instead of the cd_loadvram function which is very slow on real hardware when loading large portion of datas.
This one is about 4 times faster and use the SuperCD RAM to transfer large portion of data in SCD RAM avoiding too much cd seek.
FastVRamCDLoad: Used to load CD Data to VRAM (like cd_loadvram)
FastSCDRamCDLoad: Used to load CD Data to SCD Ram
