Re: Is this the most active 3DO forum on the web?

Ooh, thanks for the heads up on the Atari Age 3DO forum. I think part of what caused the google spider to bug out also had to do with the name change of the forum from 3DO Zone. At least, it appeared to happen at that time. Could be the spider was banned during the same period of changes.

Re: Need for Speed on 3DO destroys the other 32-bit versions

I figure this is as good a place to post this as anywhere. So, being that it's GDC 2017 time, I've been watching some talks from last GDC that have been posted recently on youtube. I came across this little tidbit: https://youtu.be/Rx6j9AOpg68?t=7m16s

Re: xBox 360 audio channel confusion

I haven't played any of those games on 360, unfortunately. I've got one, but I'd rather play cross-platform games on PC if they're on there. However, all the games I played on 360 never had that issue. I'm a big headphone guy, myself. I played for the first several years with a VGA cable on a PC mon...

Re: For original xbox owners - ATTN -

I haven't opened an original Xbox in about 10 years, but I don't remember it being particularly hard. Microsoft likes to build their RF shielding as an actual box with screws holding it together. So you open the outside plastic housing, and then inside it's a whole other metal box to open. Just, lot...

Autobahn Tokio (and racing game ramblings)

Not a lot of talk about this game on the forums. Other than it being crap. I'm curious about it though. I like arcade racers. Sometimes. I want something different to play on my 3DO. Road Rash is great, but I've realized that I prefer playing it on PC. Actually put quite a bit of time into the PC ve...

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

Is that with a disc in or with no disc? If you don't have a disc in, does it go to the normal "space potato" thing? I'm guessing not. But if it does, could just be your laser's given up the ghost. Along with the drive mechanism, it sounds like. Once you get it apart, could be the belt came off. Well...

Weird symptoms. When the 3DO logo comes up, is it in the normal colors? But yeah I'd bet a recap would likely fix it. Good first thing to try, anyway.

Why??? Its cheaper and safer to use a step down tranny... I will have to disagree with you there. First, let's go with the "safer" portion. Many cheap stepdown (or stepup) transformers are usually not built for many watts. In fact, a lot of the cheap Chinese ones flat out lie on the label. Then, wh...

Re: Request: Controller monitor/test program.

The main issue is being willing to sacrifice the controllers. I considered having switches (or relays, or a software equivalent) to switch controllers from "host" to "slave" modes, but that would require a ton of extra wires inside the controllers. Probably too many to be able to close them back up ...

I'm going to basically solder to all the buttons and connect them to a cord connector (probably hdmi) and at the other end have another plug that goes into my arcade stick. I've got everything planned out for sort of a "universal" connector that I'll use for controllers. Basically, just a common pin...

Looks absolutely perfect! So psyched you're doing this! No worries about the splash screen.

Maybe something like this already exists in a menu in one of the games, or elsewhere. If so, please let me know where. What I'm hoping for is a very simple program I can run on the 3DO (as a burned iso) to see when buttons are being pressed. Maybe a simple image of a 3DO controller where each button...
