Thanks for the review. I can see how ultimately the game is not horrendously flawed. So, it doesn't have crippling bugs or impossible difficultly. But it sure is dull!

Oh great. Someone reminded me of the pinball game. Ugh. That's gonna wreck my day. :x

I'm floored by the inexcusably bad poor quality of Wacky Races, too, but I don't count that as a game. If I expanded into not-a-game games, that would definitely be #1 on my list.

At least byte-by-byte, there are different versions, and 4DO can differentiate them (using "Help"->"Game Info"). I don't know any functional differences between A and B.

4DO's game DB just has the 4 you mention:
* US version A
* US version B
* EU PAL
* JP

I'd assume a 3DO emulator on either of those system is feasible if someone works on it enough. The CPU emulation from FreeDO is top-notch as far as optimization, but the GPU emulation can probably be improved. A lot of emulators for later-generation systems allow disabling of specific graphical emul...

I just saw your latest news about getting it to run, with sound included. Way to go!

Just don't load up Plumbers Don't Wear Ties like you did on the last video. 4DO might destroy itself.

Also, 4DO falls back to non-DirectX rendering (called GDI rendering) if DirectX is not available. You can see if this is happening in the log files created (you will see errors mentioning this). This will help you to see if it is actually using DirectX as expected. If it doesn't use DirectX, the onl...

This is a little OT and will sound silly but do you think 4DO could ever be ported & run smoothly on a Dreamcast? Dreamcast would not have the horsepower to do it. There was a XBox port attempted, but the core graphical emulation is too slow. The CPU emulation was actually not the bottleneck like I...

Wow I'm amazed! How did you get this to work? Is it using mono? I'm quite baffled at how you got this running so quickly, since I used quite a bit of windows-specific stuff in the 4DO code. The controller input is definitely one of these cases. I used DirectInput, a DirectX derivative, which also ma...

Oh I think I see one problem. Looks like the Spathi are attacking you! When I started the game, I made friends out the Spathi. Their ship was my main defense for long time. The earthling and zoqfot ships SUCK! There are more powerful allies for sure.

That's a hard list to populate with the criteria. No wonder Mazer made it!!

Too bad we can't count Killing Time, or can we? The PC game was much, much different.
