Max, if you had to summarize the relatioship between 3DO & Matsushita following the sale of the M2 technology how would you? Was it out of your scope at that point, or were there grumblings being whispered throughout 3DO hq? Boy that question is about 8 miles above my paygrade :) Was it obvious fro...

Thanks. Is this the 3DO toolkit? It's called Storagemanger, it's inside the SDK 3.0: remote/rommapps/storagemanger/storagemanger. Via M2 pad: No, I'm thinking of an Opera (M1) title that I'm 95% sure was actually released. Except that some googling doesn't find it at all. Maybe it was close to rele...

Awesome MaxtheVool came on here. Is it just me, or in the last 2 weeks did M2 related info just fall from the sky? My question : What other software do you know of is out there? I'd love to hear more about betas, planned games, ect ect. D2 is the only one that I ever heard of as being anywhere near...

Glad to have you here MaxTheVool...welcome! 8) I would be very interested in any stories hardware related,prototype photos or anything if possible. I know it wasnt your job but maybe you know sth we dont! :) I can't think of any good M2-related ones. I do remember one day when I was still doing dev...

Rec.games.video.3do? Rick Reynolds (is that right?) Marketing guy? He used to be on there quite a bit rebutting the reviews that 3DO games used to get, answering questions about release dates, rallying the 3DO troops and the like. I remember badgering him to find out when the FMV module was going t...

Were you aware of killing time ever being released on psx ? I've seen it listed before in video game price lists but I've been looking for it for a good 10 years now and have yet to find any proof that it exists on anything other than the 3do and pc . No idea, sorry Oh , and how close did ultimate ...

Hi MaxTheVool, that's very interesting, I really appreciate it. Thank you for coming here. I heard rumours that Trip had made comments about flooding the market with cheap games and the like, and it always seemed at odds what he said publicly and the games that were coming out of 3DO, which were of...

Thank you Mr. Werner für being here and your trust. I have a question:. Is this the Mercury you are talking about: Yes indeed. There was an Opera title called something like "3DO toolkit" or something like that which let you see what files were on your memory card and so forth and do other system-y...

Appreciate your time, thanks for the answers. As for 5), I was more wondering what kind of thematic direction the thing was going. One thing I think that made the system special is that they were kind of doing their own thing in a lot of ways. FMV game show party games, etc. So more accurately, I m...

1) Who do I have to talk to about that one shooter, Requiem? I bought the hype and the game, then immediately reached a boss that showed no indication of how to defeat it. Gah. I have this permanently raised vein in my forehead for over ten years now. I vaguely remember its existence, but I didn't ...

Ask the M2 Developer

Howdy everyone. It's great to see so much interest in 3DO and M2. I worked at 3DO from 1995 until its bitter end (by the time it closed down I was #7 or so in seniority). I started out in developer support for Opera (we called the original 3DO platform "Opera" because it would have been confusing as...
