Re: Is there a way to mark the forums read?

This forum software is kind of archaic..

I haven't figured out a way to mark a specific forum as read without going to every thread. If anyone knows, I'd be curious if there's a way to do it.

Yeah. I guess there is a reason why the term, "collectard", is actually a thing.

Re: 3DO and Gex sales

(some guy from Id Software claims Wolfenstein 3D and Doom had a 1:1 attach rate on the Jaguar) He's probably mistaken. There are official Atari documents that show official sales numbers, and I believe no game outside of T2K and AVP had more than a 25% attach rate (about 50,000 units of the 200,000...

Re: Is the Japanese version of the game D playable?...

Completely. Except for some menus and dialogues, the rest of the game is the same. OK, thanks for the reply! How much would I miss out on, then? For some reason, the North American release is impossible to find on eBay lately. You could have a walkthrough of one of the USA versions by your side, ty...

Re: At long lost, I've found you!

Crash 'n Burn is hard to get into. I remember thinking it kind of an odd one when I first played it, but stuck with it and after a while it just "clicked" and I started tearing through the game. Although, I never did finish it--it gets pretty difficult later on in the game. I need to revisit it on s...

Re: 3DO and Gex sales

It was on Saturn and PS1 as well, so yeah, 1,000,000 copies across 3 consoles seems easy enough to believe. Only issue with this is that by July 1995, the PSX hadn't been released in North America yet, and thus Gex wasn't available on it (I don't think it came to Saturn until a little bit later eit...

Neat. Seems like it would redundant though considering US 3DO consoles are fairly common. I wouldn't want to mess with something less common like the TRY. But, hey, at least we know it works now.

There's also a glitch when networked where a player can have music playing in-game at the cost of all sound effects. I forget how to trigger it but a friend and I did it back in the day. Fun times. I'd like to try this updated ROM but sadly Jag consoles are prohibitively costly now, too much so to j...

I remember liking the game but didn't give it enough time to get sucked in.

I prefer my shooters like this to be more linear. I ...

Re: FZ-1 disc read issues

You could try just popping the laser assembly out of the working one and put it in the JP unit. Remember that the laser assemblies just pop right out, so it's kind of hard to mess them up. That could solve the issue where your JP system will close on its own, but the US one won't (i.e., by hitting t...
