What did Capcom do? (re: 'the same'.)

they didn't want to port an exact duplicate of the coin op so they removed the background scrolling and some animations.

Didn't Capcom remove the layered scrolling so the game would run at 60fps? Isn't parallax scrolling taxing for the 3DO?

I hate to tell you this, but SSFIIX on 3DO, when it came out, was... almost Arcade Perfect.

I mean, if you're going to 'deliberately' sabotage an existing Arcade title for use at home, I can think of better things to omit than parallax scrolling!

The animations in the game are intact btw.

Having owned all the SNES & MD ones leading up to getting this on 3DO back in the day, I can honestly say, I was absolutely blown away by the conversion. Not to mention, Capcom went to extra lengths with the CD soundtrack for the game, later introduced in HDRemix on 360 & PS3. But never before.

Pretty sure it was technical limitation (probably affected smoothness and framerate during play) that prevented parallax scrolling and not sabotage.

FWIW, I don't at all buy that SShodown was 'sabotaged' either.

Its not sabotaged, its just not an arcade perfect conversion, as close as some people may want to think it is, its not good enough.

Anyone that spent considerable time playing the proper NEO‚ÄĘGEO version ( no matter which one because all three play identical ) and then played the 3DO version expecting arcade perfection wouldve been dissapointed in one way or another. It doesnt play the same.
