Hey everyone. I didn't sleep at all last night, but I did do something fun while I was tinkering around. Keep in mind that this is not actually the emulator, I'm simply reading the file and figuring things out. Check it out: https://sourceforge.net/project/screenshots.php?group_id=210531 Kudos to wh...

It looks like sourceforge offers webspace to its projects. At some point, I could use someone that's interested in web development to take over the website for us. I would prefer a friendlier face than the ad-soaked sourceforge site. If this sounds like fun to anybody, please let me know.

SourceForge page up

SourceForge page is up!

http://sourceforge.net/projects/fourdo/

Hopefully I can just start yammering on in the 4DO forum there instead. Their forum system seems pretty crappy, though.

Small update

Here's a small progress update to hopefully aid in convicing people that this is a serious attempt at the project: I've been discussing the project and been given quite a bit of good advice from the main person that's assisting me. I imagine he'd be okay with me telling you who he is, but due to pos...

I agree with you on the previous generation of consoles. I think it represents an era where graphics carried the interest. 3D in particular, even though it looked like a forest of warped, wobbly, dirty ham slices with fingerpaint all over them in the PSX days. I'm somewhat ashamed of the shallow int...

I can somewhat sympathize with the choice to commericalize FreeDO. No doubt, there was quite a bit of effort involved. I'm unsure, though, that everyone involved in the product was considering it as a goal. I imagine the actual "tangible" work was done with enthusiasm fueled by the developers' inter...

Why not throw in with the FreeDO people? Well, I've attempted this about 50%. I have been asking the FreeDO members if they have any help to offer. Although, I don't want to simply add to their project, even though it's a decent emulator that has accomplished a huge amount. I have two main reasons ...

3DOpen

There was a previous attempt at an open source 3DO emulator about 6 years ago called 3DOpen. Would anybody here have any idea how I could contact the person that attempted this? I've only found one old forum post that shows that his nickname at the time was "invictus".

Well, no news on my recruitment efforts. However, I'm going to update this thread anyway, since the information will be relevant to anybody that's interested in helping. I'm using C#. I was hoping to do C++. Unfortunately so far I only have one helping me with R&D and the other has offered to help s...

Slight recruiting progress

Great news. So far, I've gotten two people interested in helping with development. This makes three total. Although, I'm a privacy nut, so I'm not going to tell you anything about them unless I'm sure it's okay with them. We undoubtedly still need more help, especially in R&D. Again, please contact ...

Some current needs...

Off the top of my head, here's a quick list of my immediate needs. You'd be a great help to me if you can help in any of these areas. 1. I need someone familiar with open source I haven't done an open source project before. I've done several projects on my own and at work, but I don't know how these...

A call to arms: a new 3do emulator

Hi everyone, I'm new to the forum. However, I have a mission... I'm as disappointed with the fragile nature of the 3do hardware as I am with the available emulator. I would really like to try to get development of another 3do emulator underway, preferably an emulator that is open source. Please let ...

A new member with high hopes

Hi everyone. Just signed up. I've been through about three 3do's in my lifetime. I bought one for 200 bucks back in my mid-teens. I was a sucker for the groundbreaking 3D graphics, so naturally I loved games like Starfighter and Killing Time. The darned things just kept breaking down on me, even tho...
