Re: 3do power options(NTSC unit in Australia)

Im in QLD, what part of Australia are you? The part about smoother is not true. Both run the same resolution, but the PAL modded consoles are running the 640x480 within a 768x576 window, so the boarders are all round, instead of top and bottom like other consoles. There is no good reason for anyone ...

Re: Poor Goldstar...

The Goldstar was a bit crap compared to the Panasonic anyway, never seen a Sanyo but id reckon itd be about as good as the Panasonic. I think, regardless of the quality of the Goldstar 3DO Interactive Multiplayer units, Goldstar's support of the 3DO was important. It countered the growing suspicion...

Re: 3DO capacitors

Test them before you waste your time and money. Sure, some do fail, Rubycon 105° caps from 91-96 were a serious issue, the black ones, not so much the browns.

Re: About to do a complete recap on my Fz-1

Ive never recapped any Panasonic product ever, 4x 3DOs included, and only one died. From salt air corrosion. I doubt replacing all those capacitors is worth the effort, some may fail, but not all of them will. Mine are all still prefect and clear. Get an ESR tester and leave the good parts where the...

Re: Game Gun

No, the guns dont work on -E consoles, and its not because of the 50Hz, its because the console scales the original 640x480i into a 768x567i window, meaning the the console thinks youre aiming at a different part of the screen.

Re: bugger

Id avoid the FZ-10-E, or any other -E models for that matter. The 640x480 resolution of the games is displayed as a window inside a 768x576 viewable area.

Re: 2nd model Panasonic gamepad vs 1st

Learn the Irish language???

The second version Panasonic control pad is certainly better in the D-pad region than the first, i had both brand new and the smaller version was much more usable.

Neither have anything on a Saturn or Mega Drive pad.

Re: Just bought Crime Patrol and Last Bounty Hunter

Yeah ive got that one as well, although i found it quite inaccurate at times, but the video quality is good.

I prefer the 3DO versions over all others though, the only one i played in the arcade was Mad Dog 2, and it was on a 3DO based machine anyway, so it was identical to my home version.

Take it to pro, you wont ever look back. @NeoGeoMan 8) Are you playing this on a PAL/50hz console, or are you running an NTSC machine? At some point, I hope to get a US FZ-1, as I suspect it will run the majority of my PAL collection correctly. I had a JP unit briefly and, have to say, the in game ...

Re: 3DO 240p with the VP536A, and RGB with the BU3616K

And if you ran your 3DO via RGB to a display device such as the amazing NEC XG CRT projector, your eyes would probably fall out of their sockets.... NEC made the best CRT displays known to man. Component is fine for 240p provided the display will leave the signal unchanged, but it has nothing on RGB...
