I'm with you... I loved the whole Jaguar branding. Shame the machine never got the software it deserved... and the less said about that spinning cube the better!

What's funny about my radiator!?! It looks perfectly normal to me ;)

Keep going! It's the best thing you can do!

I gave up about 7 months ago... and I think it's the best thing I've ever done!

I am curious as to the contents of the ISO. How would I go about extracting the contents since if it is a MAC disc, daemon tools can't really work with the ISO. At least I assume it is a mac ISO, since it is not a 3DO ISO since uncdrom cannot find any sectors to extract: Your wish is my command ! I...

Thanks bitrate! It's so odd... some of these sources are copyright Sony (with Japanese comments!) and labeled "psx"... Saturn images and psx code! Whatever next?

I am used to play with a Goldstar pad, which is less comfortable but whose diagonals are ok. Can someone tell m...

Shenmue 2 touched me inappropriately.

I've never been so emotionally invested in a game... I nearly cried knowing that I'd never see that story finished. :cry:

Does that get me banned?

No experience of that, but did anyone actually ever use 'turbo buttons' to any great effect? I used to use turbo buttons on my Megadrive for Street Fighter 2 (Chun-li and E. Honda :oops: ). What I want to know is did anyone ever use the "slow mo" buttons? All the basically did was paused the game a...

I voted for the FZ-10... even thought aesthetically I much prefer the FZ-1. The FZ-1 is easily one of the best looking consoles of all time. The pads on the FZ-10 (at least the Jap ones I have) are much better as is the built in memory manager and as other have said the top loading nature of the FZ-...

Great! I hope you enjoy it! I really enjoyed hearing Trips thoughts on gaming past, present and future and he was amazingly candid about the 3DO and the 3DO company.

Hey everyone,

Not sure if this has been posted, but Trip did an interview with the We Talk Games podcast a little while ago. You can listen to it here.

Sorry, it's not a direct link... but if you search for "Trip" you should find the correct player :)

That was my understanding too!

The weird thing is WotW says that I will need a US NTSC version... even thought I have a Japanese system.

I guess it doesn't care the country, only the format. :roll:

PAL games on NTSC-J console?

Hi there... I've recently sold my unboxed PAL FZ-1 and bought a (probably very overpriced) boxed JAP FZ-10. I must say that I'm really glad I did. The pads alone are a massive improvement and full screen, full speed gaming is definitely the way forward. That said, I've just tried to play my old copy...

Sorry to revive a dead old post... but I just wanted to confirm that these definitely don't work on a FZ-10?

I'd love to track one of the down if they do!

PAL 60hz mod

Hi all

Long time lurker, first time poster ;)

I've been searching everywhere for any info on the possibility of a FZ1 PAL 60hz mod.

Has this ever been done before? Anyone have any info on this?

Thanks :)
