Very true Windows Killer. But we're not testing for encryption, we're first using it to test to see if the image we rebuild works. If so, then on to the encryption we go. Since I only have the original betas of the games OG turned bootable, I'm not quite sure how they beat the boot problem. I'm stil...

Oh, and cdoty, if you hex edit an image, remember to use a prog like ULTRAEDIT32. Others try to convert the image in some fashion, and even one byte out of place and the disc is toast.

Well, to 'rebuild' an image from stuff you may have extracted from a 3DO CD is very simple. There are only two buttons on the front of OperaFS[de]Complier. Click the one on the right, it probably says "??????ISO" if you don't have Russian Language Support. Choose the folder you want to turn into an ...

Certain 3DO games gave headaches to the NVRAM of the FZ-1. Panzer General, The Horde and a few others would corrupt their save files, or just the whole NVRAM. Crystal Dynamics released a new copy of The Horde as well as a corrected save file built by their demo disc, but most of the others just offe...

I'm thinking the encryption is done matting one CD image over another. A friend and I monkeyed with that idea using the 3DO Memory Manager from the memory unit to some (limited) success (title screen pops up) but ran out of time and desire to do it. Since the image file for the Guru is equally small...

Indeed, Azuma is quite good. MOJ is probably best & most open source for 3DO software from the land of the rising sun. Now if only the US Dollar would get stronger against the Yen again it'd be even better.

Pole Vault is glitchy, but this works usually. Run by alternately tapping A & C, slowly at first, then pick up speed. As your player runs, he'll automatically start to lower his pole (from certain angles, you'll see a stripe on the ground to the left of the track at this point as well), right as he ...

Guardian War was ok, just lacked that certain something to make it endeared to fans.

Luciennes Quest is ok, but seemed like it wanted to be more. I enjoyed it, but it felt like it should have been a lot longer than it was.

You can get the FZ-AK1 on Yahoo's Japan auctions off and on, , but I've only seen it on there once with it's original packaging in the past 4 or so years.
