An interesting thing in the Wolfenstein 3D Manual

In the manual for Wolfenstein 3D it says the following: Wolfenstein 3D Copyright 1992,1993,1994,1995 ID Software INC. All rights reserved. 3DO/M2 Version Copyright 1995 ID Software INC. Software developed for the operation of the 3DO/M2 Version of Wolfenstein 3D.... I just found it odd that it menti...

Crash 'n Burn had some issues on early model Goldstar consoles. So thats why Crash N Burn runs kind of buggy on my Goldstar, didn't know that. Thanks. This is incorrect. Every unit produced for the market has conformed to the same specs for RAM. I wasn't sure, I remember reading about the incompati...

I personally like the 3DO much better than the Jaguar. While I have never actually owned a Jaguar I have played many of the games. I have been wanting a 3DO for years and recently finally was able to get one. The Jaguar on the other hand I have never really wanted one. :? After looking through all t...

Goldstar Incompatibilitys?

I have read that the Goldstar 3DO is incompatible with a couple of games due to having a smaller amount of ram than the Panasonic models or something like that. What are the games that are incompatible with the Goldstar?

I had tried some of the games on FreeDO but it's just not the same as playing it on the original system. So basically this thread is going to be my first impressions ...
