Re: (My attempt at) A Definitive 3DO Game List

Thanks for the input! Adding the original non-translated Japanese and Korean names will be a bit of an undertaking, but I do plan on adding that in the next major update. I also wanted a way to filter out demos/multimedia/etc. I had been doing this for my own use by auto-filtering out certain genres...

Re: Trip'd vs. Flopon the Space Mutant vs. Furopon World

Thanks for the clarification!

Pretty confusing, especially since Flopon the Space Mutant (J) has the same serial as Trip'd (US): FZ-SJ2351.

I'm curious, are there any major differences between the Flopon the Space Mutant Demo, the game on the Short Warp disc, and Trip'd??

Trip'd vs. Flopon the Space Mutant vs. Furopon World

I'm trying to clear up some confusion on the 'Furopon/Flopon" games by Warp. I do not own any of them, but have found conflicting information online. Flopon the Space Mutant was developed first, and only in Japan. A demo was then released in Japan for Flopon the Space Mutant 2 , which was also inclu...

Re: Comprehensive list of 3DO titles?

Also, the numbering for the 3DO sampler discs is confusing... In the U.S., the most common samplers are "3DO Interactive Sampler" 1-4, but there's also "Sampler III and Storage Manager", which appears to be a different disc that has no preceding titles (only one with roman numerals). Then there's AL...

Re: Comprehensive list of 3DO titles?

One of the things I would like to confirm are how many different Storage Manager discs were produced. I know that Japan has the "Storage Manger 2.1" disc, which I assume was only bundled with the memory unit. The US included memory managers on several sampler discs and games (the only one that inclu...

Re: Alternate mouse for the 3DO?

Well, I guess that's settled then. I figured the 3DO's input was pretty unique, but I was hoping something out there used the same protocol. That and the 3DOs small userbase has certainly led to some pricey peripherals, though. I picked up my 3DO (and 15 games!) for next to nothing, but my controlle...

Alternate mouse for the 3DO?

I know that using Genesis/Mega Drive controllers in your 3DO is a bad idea, but has anyone tried a 9-pin serial mouse?

Obviously it would be easier to find than the FZ-JM1, and you could probably find an optical one.

Same here. I don't know the history of my FZ-1, and I'm always nervous about old consoles.
