Re: Restoration Project : D2 M2

Large update #1 Translation is complete and in the project timeline. Everything has been upres'd to 1080p30p. This is for the 10+ minute video from Live! 3DO Magazine CD#10. Captured from a stock 3DO via S-Video (would have loved to use an RGB mod 3DO, but I don't have the budget to purchase / pay t...

Re: Restoration Project : D2 M2

Progress report : round tripped the ten minute video from the 3DO via the Framemeister XRGB Mini, through an Elgato HD60 capture device, into my computer. This way the image is upscaled to 1080p via the framemeister (hardware solution) and not via software means. Original video was taken from its na...

Re: Restoration Project : D2 M2

I would not be narrating it, nor adding voiceover work. It's not in keeping with a restoration.

Maybe as some crazy stretch I'd hire someone to do VO work in Japanese, for an alt version, but doubtful honestly

Interesting they solved the movie issue with changing the resolution.

I'll have to try upressing the movies on Mac, run them through compressor or something and see if that makes a difference

Weird association, but I was playing Amnesia : A Machine for Pigs the last few days, and the art style and overall tone, in smallish ways, reminded me of Killing Time (hidden mystery, abandoned mansion, some of the art direction) in some ways...mostly visually. Not really a 3DOish game, but it had i...

The same screenshot from the Goldstar box (when they used the old "Time2Die" title...also the title of one of the levels/musical tracks in KT) can be seen on the Soccer Kid 3DO disc in an extremely early teaser trailer for KT in the bonus section of Soccer Kid

Re: D2 / M2 - Info dump and other musings

I'd tend to agree. Considering Laura survived the plane crash in the Dreamcast version, it's certainly plausible she did in the M2 version as well. How she got back in time? deLorean I'm sure! That's why I wish at least the story survived. Obviously at this point no beta exists, or if it does, is sq...
