Re: Road Rash saying not enough memory to play music

I had the same problem on my old Goldstar model and I think it is the same for the FZ-10. Ewhac had this problem on his lets play of road rash on youtube.
I think its a quirk of the cost reduced models of the 3do so I dont think your console is broken.

Re: 3do games with widescreen support

I just noticed an extra option in the Japanese options menu and turned it on which changed how the circle around the golfer's feet looked. I changed my tv to widescreen an boom everything looked right. The power of google translate confirmed that option I toggled on is indeed widescreen.

3do games with widescreen support

Since I'm on a bit of a gaming binge I decided to sit down with some good old golf games and for some reason I decided to play the Japanese versions of what the 3do has to offer. Since I can't read Japanese I tried using google translate and stumbled on something interesting in the options menu. App...

Yeah Wolf 3D is noticeably faster which makes me sad that we still don't have an adapter which would allow the use of a pad with analogue control.

Royal Pro Wrestling a game I want to love.

As a wrestling fan who was fortunate enough to be around when it was worth watching I have always enjoyed wrestling games, good ones anyway.

A few weeks ago I decided to swap out my US FZ-1 for my Jap version and noticed a small Mode A-B switch next to the rear expansion slot and decided to find out what its function was. After getting nowhere reading the console's manual I finally found an old post from Bitrate where he said that it swi...

Rayman definitely

Command & Conquer

X-Com

Blade Runner

Any NHL Game

Liberation (CD32)

Resident Evil

As many SNK Neo Geo ports as possible.

I like to think the 3DO could do these titles justice.

So long as you have tested other import consoles on your TV it should work fine its only the really old sets that cant display NTSC in colour and I think its safe to say that all the HD tvs display NTSC no problem.
