Re: Various 4DO problems

Hmm. I'm now realizing that "Open CD Image CoreFile" is also grayed out.

How do I tell if I'm using the libretro port? And if I'm not, how do I get it?

Various 4DO problems

So I finally got around to installing 4DO on my new computer so I could get some screenshots for my 3DO reviews. The trouble is, in apparently still further confirmation that Windows 10 is the least functional operating system ever created, 4DO won't boot. Not even an error message; the wait icon sp...

Q: What did Hobbes say to his girlfriend when he proposed?

Re: Sewer Shark

IIRC constantly shooting drains more energy and some of the enemies that can hit you drain your energy too. I don't remember exactly how far into the game is level 6. If you give me what cut scenes are at that point id probably remember but I think there should be more than 2 recharges up to that p...

Sewer Shark

Guess it's time for a new thread on this game since the old one hasn't had activity since 2007. I've popped in this newly acquired sucker and have been having a blast with it. The sense of speed and near-constant need to watch for the next turn is exhilarating. The cutscenes are painful to watch, bu...

Very cool.

For beetle spawning points, off the top of my head I remember beetles at the numbered drawers in chapter 1, and at the fountain in chapter 3. Never saw any beetles at the brick walls in chapter 3, and I've approached all of those brick walls at least once.
