Awesome, glad you finally got your 3DO. Now you will enjoy what many of us have been enjoying since it's release! By the way! Love the remixes! Some of it sounds so real, like you had a real orchestra working for ya? What programs do you use to build your music? I have messed around a bit over the y...

that ribbon cable "appeared" to be ok, maybe I should to a continuity test on each pin of the cable to see if there is a break or not.

If you stick a mainboard in the dishwasher it's a great way to remove a lot of unwanted residue from the PCB. I've done it on a NES mainboard once, and it worked great. Also cleans the connectors nicely. The oven from what I have heard will heat things up enough to sort of automatically re-flow all ...

So I picked up a boxed Goldstar 3DO for $10

Found a boxed Goldstar 3DO for $10 on CL. I figured what the hell, what do I have to lose. Came with one controller, cables, and John Madden Football complete in the long box. So I get it home, plug it in, and the thing won't eject. Then I decide to hook it up to the TV to see if it's even booting a...

I have both Slayer and Deathkeep and tried them both for about 10 minutes each. Then I decided these were games that I was going to need to devote a good chunk of my life to play, so I ejected them for another time (possibly never). I did notice the difficulty and the graphics were amazing.

The whole "composite looks like crap on LCD" can be thrown out the window. So it cannot be due to signal degredation. The reason why I say this is because why then does a DVD player, or a newer console like the 360 or PS3 look ok on an LCD tv?

Something to do with the hardware.

I know those other two consoles are a bit more powerful, but.. it seems like the 3DO's graphics are much cleaner looking, less jagged, etc etc. Maybe it's the 3D engine in the 3DO?
