Stephen, I'm interested in the Goodwill Computer Museum, but the link in your sig says your domain expired last week! You should see to it that gets fixed!

I have family in Austin and I might want to check the place out next time I visit. :)

How bizarre, I love it! I suspect it's prototype hardware sent out to early developers. Game companies will often provide their developers (and early-adopter third parties) systems like this so that they can begin development before the hardware is finalized. Once the hardware is finalized (or very ...

My guess is that each iteration of the hardware was built closely, but not perfectly, to the specification. Bugs, basically. As for the different BIOSes, I haven't compared any, but my guess would be that the differences are mostly just cosmetic. Each company wanting to put their own logos in, etc. ...

Have you forgotten the early-mid 90s when there were like a dozen game systems and every third party game got a release on every one of them, no matter how horribly they had to be mangled to do so? Console exclusives aren't going anywhere. It does seem we've hit a "sweet spot" of sorts with three ma...

Can you expand on that at all? If I'm understanding correctly, the System files included in the Homebrew pack match the ones in Game Guru? And there's apparently something special about them that makes signing easier than the normal System files? If that's the case, then I'm not sure why laying the ...

Right, I'm able to sign them with cdoty's method of decompiling and recompiling the image with the System folder from the Homebrew pack. My question is whether anyone has been able to sign a raw CD image built with the SDK. It doesn't seem to work that way.

Anyone have any particular homebrew they recommend? I got my Jag CD into slightly working condition last weekend and tried out Back Ice/White Noise. I was fairly impressed with the technology, but there wasn't much to do.

Any good stuff I should check out?

I'm finally taking some time to play around with this. Has anyone here successfully signed a CD-ROM image built with the SDK's laytool?

I think Road Rash alone is enough to win this for the 3DO, but add in the lame cut scenes from Need for Speed, and it's a done deal.
