A few "new" screenshots (the new video is uploading at the moment): You can see the mentioned particle effects, the great textures, better than PSX or SAT and even N64. You can move the camera in realtime around the car, and look at the last screenshot: There is a wall with a special texture. It's behind a house in a track in IMSA Racing. If you drive towards the wall, the easter egg "2D shooting game" will stat. What a surprise!

The new IMSA video, with the 2D shooter easter egg:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KiUUb--ggIw
my camera is a good one, but it makes sound effects after filming one hour.
edit: no, it's not my camera, it's magix video deluxe 15' fault. I'm working on it.

I've got a new race track in IMSA. I don't no why, maybe because of some track highscores or a glitch. The new track was gone after soft reset via P button. But here are some impressions:

The details are amazing:

If you're not tired, new video soon.
edit2: I've also got two new radiostations: Grunge and Pop.

Something about that is very 3DO. Reminds me of the "milk run" at the end of Shock Wave for some reason.

Awesome videos. Thanks for doing them all. If you ever need help with vids, I am a filmmaker for a living and would love to be a part of documenting all the crazy new M2 stuff.

Question, since I now MUST OWN a fz-35 to play this...do you need the proto pad? or can you use a standard 3DO pad? I have never seen a proto pad for sale

awbacon, I honestly don't know, unsure about this. M2 proto pad and normal 3DO pad do have the same ports. But their inner life differ totally from each other. Should I try it out? In the FZ-35 manual it says, that the user shouldn't connect any periphery from the stores, because this could cause a fire. :shock: Does anyone have an idea?
By the way, in EDGE issue 22 UK edition July 1995 is photo of an early M2 dev kit, on page 58. Connected to a FZ-1! Which you means, maybe you can use a normal M1 pad.

EDIT: awbacon! You are a filmmaker? Can I send you a 32 minutes long video I've made with 5 others in a german bunker? To hear your opinion, if you have time. It's a hobby of mine.

Hey guys, you can safely use normal 3DO pads on FZ-35S units. It's really all I ever use on those machines as I don't want to wear down the much harder to find M2 proto pads.

Yes! I tried it out and it works! But I cannot change the view, because the small 'R' button is needed. It's on the 3D Zero Controller - the 6 button turbo joypad for the 3DO - which became later the M2 proto pad, right? Now, all you need is a FZ-35 Player. Good news for everyone!

:idea: what do you mean? :?:

Well, this is new video, showing .csf data files and .utf texture files in the anim directory of the SDK and started via shell Comm3DO on my M2 development system - with the intense help of a very helpful user:

I just made it (M2) and this place more known on gametrailers.com:

http://www.gametrailers.com/user-movie/ ... art/348431

http://forums.gametrailers.com/thread/3do-m2/1106000

But why is the 2D Shooter easter egg of IMSA shrinked on a flat screen?

And, the angry 3DO painted car hit me off the track:

Didn't know, that there was M2 Battlesport:
http://groups.google.co.uk/group/rec.ga ... b0ff?hl=en
quote by ewhac:
(...)have indeed seen a version of M2-BattleSport, put together by a
couple of guys at Cyclone(...)
I hope this will see the light of the day, as well as all the other games and demos.

edit: ok it was planned for N64 also:

I just acquired an FZ-35S but it didn't come with a proto pad. Anyone know if a regular 3DO pad will work? Or anyone try using a keyb/mouse. I think that's what was originally hooked to this.. auto kiosk.

Yes, a regular retail 3DO control pad will function with the FZ-35S. Congrats on your acquisition, too.

Cool. I'm hoping to find a 6-button pad, but not having much luck so far. Thanks.. actually had this sitting in my closet for years. Was almost ready to give up on it. Glad I found this site! (:

NikeX...I was rereading this and realized like six years ago you asked to send me a 32 minute video to watch. Man I feel like an asshole I never saw that and answered!

six year belated offer...send it along!
