I think the arcades played a large part. You would go and see some amazing arcade machine like Starblade, Ridge Racer, Metal Slug, Street Fighter II, even Missile Command, Pacman and Galaga, and they were quite literally the most amazing thing you had ever seen. I remember standing there watching t...

Thank you for the input Grimm! However I really hate the idea of throwing hardware away that may make things harder to come by later for others. I would much rather be able to fix what I have or have it fixed if its reasonably possible. This is why I strongly feel that a sticky covering these points...

Mark from CGR is the only one ive ever heard on youtube who talks about "if you can find a working one". Dont worry chris, it holds up better than a ps does, for sure. And its older. Thats cool. The Jag CD player has the same bad rep. However it seems the parts to the 3do are harder to come by. Whi...

ok I guess you were the main programmer. This is interesting. Someone asked you guys if you would do a review on Killing Time which you guys did not work on yourselves. I posted a reply there I will repeat here: If your crew were an original 3DO developer perhaps the insights you could provide on Ki...

Re: Let's Play - Monster Manor

Let's Play - Monster Manor (3DO, 1993) - Levels 1-2 I guess this is the appropriate forum for these, so here's the first episode of our latest effort: Escape from Monster Manor . Since the game is too long to creatively edit down to even a gargantuan two hours, we're doing this one in episodic form...

I have a lot of things to say on this, but not really in the mood so ill keep it to just one major thing.. Back then you had different games for different consoles. Few of them were multi-format games.. Today its the other way around. That, i think is the major reason why gaming seem less exciting ...

Well written review indeed! And I gotta get this! I love dinosaurs and I love Jurassic Park! I dont care how bad it is. I remember drooling over the pics back in the day. Was the Raptor part scary like AvP on the Jag? I've never been that scared in a game before or since. One JP game I did not like ...

Gaming scene today vs yesterday

Does anybody else think that the gaming scene isn't as exciting as it use to be in the late 80s early/mid 90s? I can't describe why but it seems back in the 90s with the new formats coming out like CDrom and 3D the industry was taking chances with new formats and gameplay and it was more exciting IM...

Re: Creative CD-ROM CR-563B

Now what is the procedure to use the parts from this CD-Rom drive to repair a broken 3do? Maybe it should be made a sticky? Or maybe you should go read some threads in the Technical Support forum. Well I did that before posting actually. And I found the quote I used in this thread. However whats in...

Creative CD-ROM CR-563B

Here is what I found browsing around here. Your problem is no doubt one of two things. Either the drive motor has failed (or shorted), or, the gears have cracked and are not functioning properly. From what I have read on these forums, cracked gears are a common occurence with the FZ-10. So, what are...

Whats the story with the 3DO homebrew?

OK can you guys give me a brief overview of the 3DO homebrew scene? I think I heard that Mr Hawkins ignores the 3do now and wont even release the encryption so you guys have to hop through hoops like the Jag community did a few years ago to run homebrew? Are the SDKs themselves homebrews or are they...
