Re: FZ1 memory question/s

Cheers Martin. I am after the memory manager def not cheap the ones ive seen but cool and worth having in long run should be able to sort it out just seems weird it won't save the one game.

Re: FZ1 memory question/s

Yeah they are saving as when I play doom I can choose any of the levels and it saves my screen size preference etc and in big game mode on road rash my save file is always there and loads. It's just gex :? Not sure if is relevant but I used gex to delete everything that was on the internal memory. I...

Re: Introduce yourself.

The pal version states on the front it features full screen display on any pal system so I am hoping that's the issue, it has been optimised for the speed and full screen and so will not run on the already 60hz console but nobody has confirmed this as yet. I don't currently have the capacity to burn...

Anyone have any advice on any potential easy fixes for a sticking cd tray on an fz1? It powers up and if you open the console and let the drawer fully open to insert or change games it then won't close with the button on the console.
