The Let's Play threads on those forums that get completed all eventually get moved to the "Let's Play Archive" (http://lparchive.org). I would have created the thread here otherwise.

Sounds like the pay to view thing is probably temporary.

Argh, it's been pay-to-post, but it looks like they've made it pay-to-read to get more money. I paid 10 bucks to post, and I hope I didn't just pay for a suddenly-exclusive forum. Hopefully you can access it again later.

Good find. And I'm happy to see Immercenary receiving some modern day praise. It was definitely well executed.

I remembered PO'ed fondly, so I tried it out again. I had remembered fumbling with the controls, though, so I was somewhat prepared to chalk it up to a problem exacerbated by the framerate limitations. On the hardware, the framerate was pretty annoying. So I put it in the emulator instead. PO'ed see...

I added the remaining Immercenary tracks to the google drive. I was never able to figure out how to extract the music straight from the CD image. I could get it into a format that was discernable, but sounded scratchy. I ended up using 4DO to pull the music out while I was playing the game. Good eno...

My 3do is borked so I will have to answer via playing games on 4DO. I was playing Immercenary, that game is tough to wrap the brain around. Save states help with that game quite a bit though. But I stopped playing it, and I dont think I will pick it up again anytime soon. Hey that's a coincidence. ...

I owned this for a short time. I tried it out and found it quite boring. I didn't play it through "to completion", so I may have missed something, but I didn't bump into any "game" aspect to it like in some of the other edutainment games.

Dang, seeing MegaMan on 3DO sure would been interesting. That's quite the interesting find you've made.

I suppose you have to "trigger" the existence of the Dynarri. I think you might have to go to the Arilou homeworld for a lot of the conversation bits. I know that their homeworld is where they tell you about the shipwreck where the Dynarri was found. That might be enough to get the ball on the Umgah...

Listened to it essentially all day. By the way, this all started with a craving for Guardian War's music. Good stuff there.

I think Lost Eden still has my favorite 3DO music, though.

Unorganized 3DO game music

I ripped some 3DO game music this weekend. I didn't want to put this on the 3DOOverture section since it's pretty disorganized. The track names are simply the names of the tracks off the original discs. I wasn't able to find all the music for some of the games. They're MP3 at 128k, I'm not picky abo...

It's indeed true. There is no such option in 4DO. It would be pretty difficult to do in 4DO, though. Since it's a low-level emulator, it currently does not know what files are being accessed. It knows what sectors of the CD are being read (2k blocks), but it doesn't know the files behind them. It al...

The only way I know is to install the 3do SDK on a Maconitosh with a very old operating system. This can be done with a virtual machine. You can program in C from there.
