Isn't 3DO Wolfenstein a port of the Mac version and not the PC?

Re: The game that got canceled!

Mega Man X3. Apparently the version actually existed and was available very briefly at retail. There's a thread on this board that discusses it. I already have it on the Saturn, but I'd love to see how the game runs on the 3DO, if parallax was removed/if the game scrolls at 60 fps. It would have bee...

Didn't Capcom remove the layered scrolling so the game would run at 60fps? Isn't parallax scrolling taxing for the 3DO?

I wanted to test the s-video signal, but my trinitron and my Samsung flatscreen only have composite and component.

Re: Screwed up colors/random pink with Japanese FZ-10

The more I thought about it, the more complicated/impossible to fix this sounded, so I sent it back to Japan for a refund. I'm really disappointed, but I didn't feel like sinking the time/money it would take to even diagnose the problem. Now I'm kind of wary to ever get an FZ-10 again.

Re: Screwed up colors/random pink with Japanese FZ-10

UPDATE: I've opened it up to look at the caps and noticed that the 150uF 200V cap on the PSU has a glob of gray "putty" near it that's forming a connection between a diode and some other components on the PSU. That's all I could find that looked suspicious. Could that be a possible cause? http://i13...

Screwed up colors/random pink with Japanese FZ-10

I just fired up my Japanese FZ-10 for the first time and immediately noticed that the yellow circle in the 3DO logo had a pink tone to it. Then the R.E.A.L logo was outlined in pink. Then the bios screen with the bouncing objects was pink instead of gray. Then I put in Virtual Horror and the title s...

Re: 2nd model Panasonic gamepad vs 1st

That's a little disappointing. At least now I know not to bother buying a JP2X. Good to see you here, NeoGeoNinja. I haven't been active on the saturn board partly because I forgot my password and partly because I got my computer reimaged and it's no longer on my bookmarks so I never think of it.

Nice find! I'd love to have an FZ-10. I love my FZ-1 but I can't help but not trust an early 90s motorized CD tray (thinks of Sega CD model 1 *shudders*). Plus the built in memory manager must be useful.

Is it true that the second model controller from Panasonic, lacking the headphone jack, is better than the original? I've heard that the d pad is easier to use. Is it as good as a MD or Saturn d pad? I'm mostly satisfied with the original pad I have, but I've noticed it's sometimes hard to keep movi...

Re: Running out of ideas for a 3DO homebrew...

I always wanted to see more driving games, either 2D scaling or 3D, on the 3DO. Idk which (if any) have the source code released though and it would be really difficult to make one from scratch.

F1 GP had a lot of promise, but it's clearly unfinished.

Re: FUJISAN's Collection

That's a great collection. How is the 3DO viewed these days in Japan? It clearly performed better commercially there than anywhere else which is strange for a western developed piece of hardware. Is it pretty much ignored and forgotten about? I hope not.

Necrobump

Is there any reason why Namco chose to use FMV for the game instead of realtime 3D? The flat shaded polys don't look like anything the 3DO couldn't handle. Even the textured ones don't look too taxing given that objects do the same thing every time you play the game.
