Re: Xenon megablast 2

I guess I was checking if anyone had one (or had ordered) and could say if it was good game and what the quality of it was overall. And perhaps let others who may want it or be interested know of it in case they did not.

Re: 3DO FZ-10 BIOS swap to change region ( & Sanyo )

Wish I had more skills: basics like changing a playstation laser I can do but not much more :P
If I could fix stuff I would. Need someone to fix some broken mega cd consoles and a faulty neo geo cd I have did open them myself but both beyond my skills. Think both used same laser assembly.

Re: 3DO FZ-10 BIOS swap to change region ( & Sanyo )

It would just be easier to find and run one (no stepdown required) and less costly as it would literally only be to play the odd game, and possibly mean less wear and tear for my beloved FZ1 :) I doubt I would modify one for RGB, if a machine can do it natively I get the cables, ps1 saturn jag snes ...

Re: 3DO FZ-10 BIOS swap to change region

Good job. I do want to play it so will likely get a cheap pal machine if I can come across one. Wish it would just play on anything, like the first game... :twisted:

It seems it might be the one game that can't be played. Well one of them, strange it wasn't released in Japan...

Re: How to get Return Fire Maps 'O Death to work?

I believe it needs to have a save file from the first game as Bry stated.

Shame I can't play it as I don't think it was released in Japan and is region locked in PAL. If it was released in America and I can find one for a good price I would get it if I knew it would work :|

It is a superb game. I played it through on every difficulty on the Jaguar and that only has half the levels the 3do one does.

:D 8) all is well that ends well. The difficulty of getting some stuff on the Jaguar is annoying but it's satisfying as well. It's a great game and the box manual and cart sticker are all class. Would def buy from them again if they do other stuff.

FUJISAN could maybe confirm if there was a Japanese release. Given the 3DO seemed to do better there and it was a follow on to one of the generally well received games you would think so.

Thanks. I have recently finally managed to obtain a Japanese copy. Was advised on here it did get a release there but don't see it often. Was getting tempted to just burn it. Did want to know if the USA one would run so thanks again.

It is a poor conversion. However it is doom and the music is superb so, still worth a punt. Plus it's 3DO so I did force myself to play it through although I did find it difficult. Not n terms of actual gameplay difficulty just when I had heard all the tracks and having it displayed about two levels...

Re: FZ1 memory question/s

I got the official memory unit. Copied gex save data to there and so far it's somehow not deleted from the console since installing the memory unit. Worth getting if you can and are into the machine enough to ultimately end up with lots of games/needing more than is in the console.
