Re: List your top 3 sound tracks for 3DO

I'm a bit too new to 3DO to have a top 3, but I really liked the music for that 'Gridders' game. I don't own Night Trap on 3DO, but that would probably be number 1 in my list for the Theme Tune alone...

Re: Did My 3DO Storage Method Damage It?

Have you tried a lens cleaner disc? It might be that some dust has settled on the lens perhaps :? You might be able to clean it another way, but I had a similar problem with my PS1 when I dug it out a few months back and found that the lens cleaner disc did the trick.

Thanks, that worked a treat. It's great to be able to play it again :)

Re: I think I've destroyed my 3DO

The stepdown converter broke... apparently we used it for too long! So assuming that this hasn't damaged the 3DO (again), I need one of the bigger units to run it on. Please could someone advise if either of these would be any good? http://www.maplin.co.uk/300w-uk-to-usa-voltage-converter-265288 htt...

Re: I think I've destroyed my 3DO

PS1 Psychic Detective is all full screen? Huh. I'd think that would be a bit confusing, since your options circles would then overlap the video. (Disc space was probably also a consideration in making the FMV for the interactive portions of the game partial screen.) You can still view it in a small...

Re: I think I've destroyed my 3DO

My votes would be for Gex and Psychic Detective. Shanghai Triple Threat's a pretty good pick too, a nice relaxing bit of gaming to take a break between the likes of Total Eclipse and Space Hulk. Do you have a 3DO mouse to play it with? Sadly no mouse, although they had one at the store I believe (a...

Re: Night Trap

I've only ever played the Mega CD version, but even that (complete with small screen and grainy image) features in my top 100 of all time. When it came out the industry was changing dramatically and it was groundbreaking, and although people might look back and laugh now, it's one of those games tha...

Re: I think I've destroyed my 3DO

Thanks, I bought one and we tested it today... IT'S ALIVE! Operation is very quiet, the disc tray seems quite smooth and load times are fine. Actually I'm quite impressed with it so far... and I'm also very relieved :o So far we've only played Dragon's Lair, Soccer Kid, Off-World Interceptor and Qua...

Re: I think I've destroyed my 3DO

I wasn't sure which converter would be best? I guess I couldn't be so lucky that this cheap and cheerful one would do the trick?

Re: I think I've destroyed my 3DO

Firstly, thanks for the replies and advice - I didn't even know there was a 3DO forum, so finding this came as a relief at least! Yep, it was a travel converter. In hindsight it seems so obvious, but at the time we were just very excited about playing it and the thought never occurred to us :( I've ...

I think I've destroyed my 3DO

Hi! Just before I start, I want to say that I realise I'm an idiot... just so that you don't tell me what I already know to be true!!! My brother and I recently bought a Goldstar 3DO from the US. To be honest, we've never imported a games console in our lives and we'd never really considered it, but...
