3DO chip sound?

Is the 3DO capable to do chip generated music? If I got the data sheet right, it's only sound dedicated chip is the custom made CISC DSP chip, which is "only" able to manipulate and decompress sampled sound data. So, no synthesizer, no midi, no wavetable but only audiotracks and sampled audio data f...

Hmm, dont know - couldn't find any clues about that.

I guess there has been a "Skycopter" kids ride before, which
didn't utilize the Atari hardware.

So the Atari Jaguar game was the second Skycopter ride, though
the first Skycopter on the Jaguar.

The DVD is forbidden to be sold to people under the age of 18. 3. This movie, if broadcasted on TV, would be heavily cut. Lets say about 10 minutes shorter, I gue...

Hehe, by the way: You guys may have heard of the strict censorship here in Germany. This is why "blood" in video games was often recolored to green e.g., to make the enemies aliens instead of humans. Or in Mortal Kombat 1 it was grey, so the blood wasn't blood anymore but sweat. Yeah, pretty ridicul...

I write some perfomance test samples and found that the real rate of pixel processing is about 9.2 million pixels per second. So, if I use 530 polys in scene (32 pix in width and 32 pix in height, 6bpp, distorted) then framerate is about 16-17 frames per second. So realistic numbers are (if I do th...

I've seen your 3DO 3d-engine:

Does it use any 3d acceleration from the CLIO/MADAM custom chips,
or is it purely software based rendering using only the ARM cpu?

I think why Goldstar used copy protection in its console - it's because they were the manufacturer of 3DO software. In this way Goldstar protect their business.
