Re: New emulator - 3DOPlay

I'll stick to 4DO, I honestly don't see the point in this. I appreciate anyone who makes any effort to improve 3DO Emulation, but 4DO is running strong and well and is really close to perfection (I'm aware they're both based on FreeDO.) so I just honestly don't see this as necessary. Does anyone el...

Hoo boy, do I have some good news. Although I can't get 3DOPlay to run I can access the source code. And I'm trying their changes out now! Now, don't get your hopes up too much, but at first glance this seems to have solved at least the Gex and Street Fighter II freezes! I can play Gex again! I'm su...

Well, if 3DOPlay is what it says it is, I could import the core emulation fixes. I can't get the dumb thing to work, though! *sigh*

New emulator - 3DOPlay

There's another emulator based off FreeDO code: http://3doplay.do.am/

It looks like he's been making some fixes to the core! On top of that, it's open too! Hooray!

However, I've tried a couple versions but I can't seem to get it to work. Has anybody else had any luck?
