An update, Chop5 and I took the controller apart and he discovered a seemingly chopped in half resistor over the select button. Just touching parts of the controller board when plugged in was causing it to register select presses as it wasn't grounded correctly. Terrible QA on this product.

This patch translates the car selections before going to race. While its not a huge amount of text, now you will know what kind of car you are racing and the background information that is included with it.

This patch makes the scoreboard able to be read, changed the Japanese text for Top and Bottom of the innings, some baseball symbols, and the player names are in English making it somewhat easier to distinguish between players on a team.

What isn't done are the small Japanese signs that show up during gameplay as they are compressed graphics but this shouldn't make it too hard to play the game normally.
Well modern slot-loaders seem to handle the disk significanlly less:

Mostly around the edges. But I'm also told that the Anaogue Duo does not have an emergency eject button in case anything gets stuck. So ether they were being too cheap, or these drives don't have a way to manually eject disks? <shrugs>
I'd rather it were flip up like a real Duo (simple and reliable) but I'm hoping there's a way to just play ISOs and leave the discs on the shelf.  Like majors says, I'd probably use CDRs at first and monitor for wear.
I don't know about the CD mech on the forthcoming Analog nor do i have a need for one, but couldn't one burn their own discs to use on it? Then you could monitor of any wear and tear on the cd-r and if it does botch it up, you're only out a few pennies.
Hi everyone,

So now that the Analogue Duo has been announced, is anyone worried that using a slot loading drive has the potential to damage your CDs compared to traditional tray loading CD-ROM drives? I know older slot loading drives use rollers to pull in CDs, but I'm told newer drives are less "physical" when handling disks? Should we be weary of using rare CD-ROM games on the Analogue Duo?
