Re: Jaguar Sector II down

JSII is down again. Maybe for a while time as Jay seems to need a break. This time it seems someone filed a discrimination complaint against him. My guess it was Grimm as we just ended his account per his request. He was carrying on in this fashion.

So Jay is taking a breather.

Re: All my Jag games

Wish I had Worms. One of the technological gems for the Jaguar is Hover Strike CD. If you look at the textures you will see the Jaguar doing what appears to be filtering and Anti-aliasing on the textures as they are absolutely clean with no Jaggies. They are quite beautiful. Though the game itself m...

Jaguar Sector II down

Sorry for the inconvenience folks but JSII will be down for perhaps a couple weeks. I will keep you guys informed as much as I can. For the curious anyway.

Re: BioForge on 3DO...

Also PCs are not equal to dedicated game consoles in many ways. Even if the specs seem lower for a contemporary console versus the PC system of the time. The game console usually has quite an edge in a lot of areas. Its almost like comparing apples and oranges and its nowhere near a straight correla...

Re: BioForge on 3DO...

There also seem to be other variables that can go along with this. Look at Ewhac and Gammadevs video on 'Let's play PO'd' and they talk about how on that game the 3do outperforms the PSX and why this is so in some cases. These things are fascinating. Yep, this game had polygonal texturized objects. ...

Re: Road Rash getting back into it.

No I have not run into that but the differences in speed are not that big a deal. To me its a marginal difference that you only notice the first few moments. Overall the 3do is the best version IMO.

Re: Road Rash getting back into it.

Unfortunately that video was just of the Saturn/PSX version which seem to be almost identical.

The more I play the 3do version it seems glaringly obvious that Electronic Arts got lazy on the other ports.

Re: Does Primal Rage Suck?

Maybe they realized the constraints they were dealing with, and went for smaller sprites that animated better, versus larger ones that animated worse (like in the PSX version). Or maybe you are correct--they were rushed. Or perhaps all of the versions were pushed out the door quickly, haha (The PSX...

Re: Does Primal Rage Suck?

It seems that the 3do version and the Jag version are very very similar. That being said they both seem to be quick rush jobs with very little care taken with them. There is little reason IMO why both versions on the Jag and 3DO cannot be as good as the PSX/Saturn versions. As for PR blending in jus...

Cows on the Peninsula.

As I said I'm playing through both the Saturn and the 3do version looking for differences. On the 3do version there are cows when you race the Peninsula. I don't remember them on the Saturn. Also on the 3do I hit a man in a business suit and it dropped his trousers and he stood there with his pants ...

Yes, the FZ-10 is probably the most reliable of the US units. However, you do have to be careful with the drive door. The little black tab that sticks out and presses the button to make the drive spin broke off of mine, and it's been a serious pain to get my games to play reliably. There's that one...

I'm working through both the Saturn and 3do version simultaneously. I've had the Saturn version for years and never finished it.
