Re: My 3DO Blaster Project

What's the hold up?

I used to have a setup like this years ago. Setting it up was likely a sin.

How does Myst Masterpiece edition stack up? It has supposedly "updated graphics and updated sound". Is that true? Also, why in HELL is realMyst so goddamn expensive? I downloaded the demo and just fell in love, went on ebay, and fainted. 80 BUCKS?! For a game of realMyst?! Does anybody know anywhere...

I also wanted to ask about this...

Wiki says: "The console ports featured narration for the letters viewed during gameplay in order to make full use of the hardware."

My 3DO version doesn't do this. Cause? Dirty CD? 3DO Racism :D ?

Does the Saturn/CD-i/PS ports do the narration?

I got the 3DO version in the mail today and... The quality's amazing! Even better that I thought it'd be like. The loading times are a bugger though, but the image quality keeps up. Hell, I hooked it up to my HDTV to try it out widescreen (Myst is in widescreen on 3DO, not sure about other versions)...

Best port of Myst?

Hey, I'm one of the few people who actually got into Myst and finished it to the end without a hint book (It was hard as HELL). I did it all on PC about five years ago. I tried it again recently, but I realized its nowhere near as fun as playing it on a tv (La-Z-Boy Chairs and Myst go together like ...

Ok, I figured it out. I got this card (randomly stumbled across it), and used it in the computer! Wow!, Computer control the turrets now! So I set about finding more cards...and couldnt find any.

So you guys dunno anything? Is there an instruction manual on the net somewhere?

Scariest 3DO Game?

What was the scariest game on 3DO? Thoughts would first say Doom, but that never really *scared* me like a horror movie would with it's upbeat music. In fact, Doom was fun for me, not scary in the least, like watching a b-horror film. My vote would have to be for Defcon 5, I'm one of the few people ...

My First experience with doom was at a friend's house. He had the 3do version and used the full-screen cheat code, so off the bat, I thought it was a good game but waay to choppy. In all honesty, it isn't that bad! It's playable with the full-screen code (I myself finished the game in that mode). Bu...

I never used equalizers because I prefer to listen to my cds exactly as the artist wanted me to...not with my little adjustments.

Best Sounding Game Console?

I've noticed that, while there is many audio equipment on the shelves today, there is a shortage of pure audio CD players. So for listening to audio, I always used my old laserdisc player. It sounded the best to me, and beat out any DVD player. But recently, I've started thinking. Video Game Console...

They used software rendering as opposed to hardware render. Probably would explain the pop-up too as the cpu was working overtime. Very True, Polygons in itself were actually a manipulation of the sprite engine on the Saturn. Actually, I havent played it in a week or so, but as I remember, the popu...

Differences In FZ-1 Models

Hi,

I am Completely new here and this is my first post :D

As a new owner of a glossy new FZ-1 System, I have a question.

I've read on the internet that some FZ-1s (Wtih a glossy top) have internal differences with FZ-1s with a flat top.

Truthful or just a rumor?

Thanks,
Blades
