Post by Gladius » Fri Dec 07, 2012 12:32 am

So here is what i know.
i know how to repair and build pc's.
i have studied the 3do's architecture.
im interesting in developing games for the 3do.
where do i go from here?
what programming language do i learn?
where can i learn 3do asm?
or would c be better?
are there any c compilers for the 3do?
links to these things would be best.

Begin with SDK and Developer's Documentation Set.
Looking for sealed and rare 3DO games and stuff. Just PM me about what you have to offer.

The only way I know is to install the 3do SDK on a Maconitosh with a very old operating system. This can be done with a virtual machine. You can program in C from there. It takes a long time to set up, but it can be done, and it works!

Someone from the Freedo project had said they would make the 3do SDK functional from Windows, but don't know if that ever happened.
