Re: Possible replacement CDrom drive units for FZ-1 (new success

Thanks for the info. It would be interesting to know where he got the laser assembly from. The laser used is a Sf92.5. But there seems to be a couple of revisions. The short cable 11/4 pin seems to be a drop in replacement for the 3DO but the long cable 11/4 pin seems to have a different pinout. It'...

Re: Road Rash saying not enough memory to play music

All 3DO have the same spec. Check this thread with a similar issue https://assemblergames.com/threads/3do- ... ame.57265/

Could be a bad RAM chip. Check the electrolytic caps near the RAM chips as well and replace if faulty.

Re: Various 4DO problems

Are you using the libretro port of 4DO? https://github.com/libretro/4do-libretro

I don't think the original 4DO is supported anymore. If you still have issues, try Phoenix emulator.

Re: Introduce yourself.

I think there are a few people around coding small games. There's an interesting interview with 'Burger' Becky on how she ported Doom to the 3DO https://youtu.be/rBbIil2HPSU I read somewhere that some developers were trying to tidy it up and improve it for 3DO. There's another video on porting 'Out ...

Re: Introduce yourself.

Welcome back :) what's your area of interest? There's a few open source RGB mods in the works, a 3DO usb host is still around but the home brew scene is still vacant.

Re: New 3DO RGB mod

Hi, Check over at assemblergames.com or obscuregamers.com. They are an active forum with many skilled modders. Put out a request for service and there should be someone near you who can mod your console. Their prices are reasonable but u may have to ship your console. I would suggest learning to sol...

New 3DO RGB mod

So I've just finished designing a new 3DO RGB board using the BU3616K encoder. As the old mod boards were unavailable. This board will work on all 3DO revisions (except FZ-10 with the Anvil chip or Creative Labs 3DO blaster). Installation is similar to old mod with 24 RGB wires, SYNC, CLK, 5V and GN...

Re: DVD or CD?

I haven't read the articles myself but it sounds like standard behaviour for the console industry at the time. 3do were looking to release the M2 around 1996/1997 but DVD tech in consoles was still a few years off, Ps2 released in 2000. 3do couldn't afford to wait that long in order to maintain a pr...

Re: Introduce yourself.

Thanks goldenband. It's a real shame that this place got blacklisted by Google, I only found it by accident because someone has linked a thread here on another forum. Is it not just a case of changing the site's server or domain ip or something. Hopefully Devin can work something out. This site need...

Re: Introduce yourself.

Hey man, thanks for the reply. Yeah I noticed the traffic on this site is unfortunately low. I'm also on AtariAge and Assembler focusing mainly on 3DO at the moment. Trying to work on feasible hardware solutions for this console both enhancing and restorative. Hopefully I will find some good info an...

Re: Introduce yourself.

Hi, thanks for the add. Excited to be part of the dedicated 3DO forums. I recently became interested in the 3DO technology after reading about the 3DO Blaster. The more I looked into 3DO, the more obscure and alluring I found it. I managed to pick up an FZ-1 for a good price (£40) and promptly start...
