Re: Jap FZ-1 Mode A-B switch 240p tests.

I spent a lot of time in the 240p mode the other night and these are the ones that stuck out to me: Out of This World - Game runs twice as fast. It's neat to see but it's pretty much unplayable. It also didn't play the introduction sequence for me. Monster Manor - Game is much snappier. Framerate se...

Re: Jap FZ-1 Mode A-B switch 240p tests.

Thanks for posting about this. I was made aware of the FZ-1's 240p mode via a thread on another forum recently. I checked my system and sure enough, it has a switch. I tried several games on it and for the most part they pretty much play and perform the same. Microcosm however, I experienced what yo...

Re: The Making of 3DO Starblade

Neat article. I thought it was obvious it was FMV for the backgrounds, but up to now I personally assumed they still used polygons for the interactive objects. They did a damn-convincing job turning them into 2D assets!

Re: Need for Speed on 3DO destroys the other 32-bit versions

It's interesting to look back through this thread all these years later. I recently clocked a lot of time into the 3DO version, yet in my earlier posts in the thread I hadn't clocked much time into the game and didn't really appreciate it that much. Now it's one of my favorites on the system. Once y...

Re: Looking to buy 3do games on here

The marketplace moved to invite-only. Not that it's been active in years though. It would be nice to have an open marketplace for 3DO collectors to buy/sell games. 3DO stuff is drying up (particularly CIB stuff), eBay sellers aren't housing the quantity or the pricing they used to, and 3DO stuff doe...

Re: Out of this World: 3DO still got it

I dig the 3DO version. My big issue with it though is that it runs way too fast. It makes areas of the game much harder than the original (and not in a good way). The modern remastered versions are the way to play this game now, but the 3DO one is still a good experience too.

It's nothing special, but I picked up a Goldstar system last week.

The Goldstar seems to do it just fine though, so I'm back in business with some ...

I think the most logical solution is to try to get the Google spider un-banned.

You sure about that auto-jump? I do have the manual for the game, and it says you have to tap "up" to do the running jump. Plus, I have successfully run off the edges of platforms. You use it at this part here and the person narrating the video explains it: https://youtu.be/e3QsF3BzKAo?t=15m46s Tap...

You'll get the hang of it. It takes time but there will be a point where the jumping, platforming, rolling and the gunplay feels natural. It's stiff and rigid, but you get used to it and eventually get into a flow with it. Just a fair warning for the second level, there is an auto-jump mechanic for ...

I believe saving is done at various kiosks throughout the stages. You probably haven't run into the first one yet. At least, I think that's how it works. It's been a while.

Flashback is, like Prince of Persia and Out of This World, full of trial and error.

(some guy from Id Software claims Wolfenstein 3D and Doom had a 1:1 attach rate on the Jaguar) He's probably mistaken.
