Plus, the 3DO laser wore out very quickly in an arcade environment. We discussed this game before. Nice to see the original cabinet. 8)

Killing Time. Very briefly in 4DO just to see how much more enjoyable the game could potentially be by boosting the CPU cycles a lot.. Did this myself yesterday. I was well impressed by the smoother visuals, but the sound suffered as a result on my system. Oh well... maybe in another decade I'll pl...

I'd definitely be interested in this - buying the part and fitting it myself. I'd prefer to do this to my FZ-10 though (in case we ever get that IDE mod, I'd have my FZ-10 modded, but keep my FZ-1 in it's original state). If it is just a chip swap, I'm guessing it would also work on the FZ-10?

Swapping out the video file from an existing disc is definitely worth a shot. I've never created a 3DO CD myself, only extracted files, so I'm not sure how simple (or difficult) it would be. I'm sure some of the guys on here with Dev Kit experience could advise, though. For the actual video encoding...

I'm 99% sure you'll need to write/build a disc containing 3DO code to play the video. Once you've created a Cinepak video file, you still need to get the 3DO to actually play it.

Unless I missed something?

I just gave this a try, and I'm impressed.

It's a long shot, but have you tried clearing some space in the NVRAM? I'm wondering if the game checks for free space, but won't boot if there isn't enough. That's purely a guess though.

4DO slower than FreeDO?

Anyone else getting this problem? I'm only trying to run the FZ-10 BIOS and am getting poor performance. It's running 60fps about 80-90% time, but pauses for a second, continues at 60fps, pauses, continues etc etc. Dual-core 64bit CPU @2GHz, 2GB RAM, Win7 (64bit). Runs FreeDO OK (on selected games, ...

For me, download page counts down from 5 to 0, then switches to the second mirror, counts down, then switches back to the first mirror, counts down... and so on.

Well, I for one am extremely grateful of your efforts. :) I've been hoping for 3DO emulation to improve for years! While I still have my FZ-1, there's no room for it in my living room, so doesn't get used much these days.

My Mac Mini, however, is in the living room. :D
