It would be interesting to see a translation for Moon Cradle, one day or another.

Does anyone know if there is a project for writing an emulator for it and for dumping games? There are some japanese adventure games that got a english (subbed) release, like JB Harold's Blue Chicago Blues, only on this console.

The best program for doing 1:1 copies is CloneCD. ;)

So far, without the MPEG card, the game seems to be a 1:1 copy of the 3DO one, but i haven't got very far.
I'll try enabling the MPEG card in emulation to see if there are substantial differencies.

3DO Tech information

Hi, i'm planning to open a site on my own in the next months, with a big part of it based on videogames (but i'd like to cover other kinds of stuff as well). I'd like to open there a 3DO section where to host emulators, guides, link to the communities (like this forum), utilities like the un-cd and ...

As far as i know, Moon Cradle uses the Saturn's MPEG card. So the video quality should be a little better than the standard compression used back in the day ;)

Also, as far i have read, this remake should feature...a 3DO inside the game :D

Yes, of course the new FMVs might take a lot of space but... 2 extra disks only for FMVs? :?:
That doesn't convince me at all. I am trying to obtain the CD images for the Saturn version, but it's pretty slow.

Question about Iida Joji Nightmare Interactive: Moon Cradle

Hello guys, it has been a while since the last time i have posted on this forum :D I have noticed that this nice isometric horror adventure game has been ported to the Saturn too, but the Saturn version is made of 3 CDs, while the 3DO version has only one CD. I wonder, what are the differencies betw...

Do you know if this game uses mainly hiragana/katakana alphabets or relies heavily on kanji? In the first case, i may give you an hand on the menus (but not on the rest, my japanese isn't so good)

Oh wow. I guess that laseractive is one of the still unemulated systems :(

EDIT: I have just discovered that Blue Chicago Blues is not the only JB Harold game present on the Laseractive. There is a port for Manhattan Requiem too. Does anyone knowns anything about that one?

As far as i know, the game is identical to the 3do/psx/pc-engine cd release except for the english subtitles. I never heard about an english audio track.

would you mind dumping the disks into disk images and sharing them? It's the best way to preserve them.

Is there any game like Super Robot Taisen?

Hello, i'm a great fan of the super robot taisen games. They are japanese turn-based strategy games with huge mechas, both from the animes (like mazinger, getter robot, ufo robot grendizer, space warrior baldios, daitarn 3, gundam and such) and originals (like daizengar, cybuster and others). This g...

Yes and yes. However the homebrew scene is VERY small. And it's mostly composed of people trying to make a good version of the "encryption". So far there are five unreleased games that have been "encrypted" and released as well as one homebrew disc. Excuse me, would you mind spending some words abo...

Yes, 100€ more or less. I still have a lot of old console magazines, so if you want to i can do a scan of the catalogues of the videogames stores that advertised there.

In Italy the 3do and it's games were ridicously expensive: the medium price of a game was around 200.000 lit (more or less 100€), the double of the medium price for other systems. Also 3do never had an huge space in console magazines and was considered more a weird curiosity than a system with big p...

It should be the third part of a trilogy of RPG composed by LaPlace no Ma (devil of Laplace) on PC-88/MSX/PC-Engine CD and Paracelsus no Maken (The magic sword of Paracelsus) on PC-98. The developer is Humming Bird Soft. Has anyone of y...

I have tried N.O.B. Neo Organic Bioform, another japanese only title. The game relies heavily on spoken japanese, so i couldn't grasp much of the plot.

Thanks for the warm welcome guys ;) Replying to Trev, since the game is an adventure, progress is strictly determined by how much of the game you understand. If you don't know a good deal of japanese, progress would be made only brute forcing the game or using some text grabbing utility and then tra...

My interest in 3do has started only recently, so i'm pretty new to the field, even if i remember reading a lot about 3do and it's games on magazines when i was a kid in the '90s. My interest was sparkled from a rare and unknown japanese game: doctor hauzer. It's a sort o...
