  1. I found a decent item for cheap at around 2004, a 3D Zero SNES controller adapter. At first it worked, for both a control pad as well as a fight stick. Then later I bought Pataank, and the 3D Zero didn’t work. It didn’t work with neither the SNES Pad nor fight stick. But the Goldstar 3DO controller and Panasonic fight stick work fine. Also I tested the daisy chaining abilities of the 3D Zero, it worked anywhere from Player 1/4 to Player 4/4. I know it can work with up to 8 people, but I don’t have 8 controllers. First of all, any 3D Zero owners notice an incompatibility with Pataank, or is it just mine? Second, can anyone name a 3DO game they have that doenst work with a 3D Zero? Finally, how do other SNES->3DO adapters work with their 3DO games, i especially what to hear about incompatible ones with 3D Zero, like Pataank?
  2. Does know any good sources for my "Failed gaming systems" speech? I have to do a speech for my speech class that has: At least 1 book At least 3 articles No more than 2 websites as my sources
  3. Recently purchased a Sanyo Try IMP-21J 3DO console as a more hackable daily driver compared to my Panasonic FZ-1. While cleaning it I noticed two separate jumper pads. One populated with 4 pins and the other unpopulated. Changing JP2 made no observable difference and I did not check JP1. Still need to more closely follow the traces. I have the service manuals found on retrorgb for FZ1 and EU FZ-10 but I'm not seeing any jumpers referenced. I've looked around for the IMP-21J service manual to no avail.
  4. Specifically looking for a 3DO FZ-10 console only. I have power cable, vid cable and controllers. I have a broken one, and so I'd love to get a working one that I can swap parts and test with. Looking to spend $75-ish but negotiable. FOR TRADE: (bare consoles, if interested I can see if I have power supplies/controllers, all 100% tested/refurbished and work, pictures available) Sega Master System Model 1 w/ Hang On built in Sega Genesis Model 2 (I have 4 of these) Sega Genesis Model 1 (I have 3 of these) Nintendo NES front loader Sega CD Model 2 (can include burned backup games) Atari 2600 vader Sega Dreamcast Obviously, I don't want to trade ALL of these for a 3DO, but let me know and we can made a deal.
  5. HI everyone first post here and excited to find this community. Recently(now that my son has moved out, and daughter is headed to college) I decided to get back everything I had to sell off over the years (video game collections) to make ends meet, and expand. Needless to say I have gone a bit overboard and even have been picking up broken consoles too to fix and trade or sell to get more for my collection. I love fixing them, it's like rescuing something that would have been doomed for no good reason, especially the simple ones!! I have tons of tools and intermediate electronics experience (I have my own metcal soldering station and reflow air blower, desoldering gun etc etc etc) Yesterday I came across a Panasonic 3DO FZ-1 at an estate sale. This estate sale was unlike no other I have been to in the area as the person was a Arcade / coin op machine repairman. On top of the 3DO I saw 2 things, first the $15 price tag (and there was 25% off that day too!!!) and a sticker indicating a new brush-less motor had been installed. Sadly they couldn't find the controller for it. I get the 3DO home, plug it in grab an audio CD since I didn't have any games handy, hook in to my tube TV and it powers on! As I look at the 3DO logo I thought AWESOME! I eject the tray, pop in the CD, the access light flashes brightly a few times, the screen goes black, 3DO logo appears again, screen goes black, 3DO Logo and the access light goes off.... nothing. I eject the disc out, unplug the machine and open the system up to take a look. This system is incredibly clean...I take the shield cover off the optical drive, plug it all back in and power it on. I can see the laser assembly move around a bit back and forth and bob up and down and can even see the red laser. I eject the tray pop the music CD back in and hope for the best. The CD spins the laser sled moves around, the laser moves around again as the CD spins up faster, then the CD slows a tiny bit bot nothing happens on screen. I'm left staring at the 3DO logo and nothing else. I go back to my desktop and start to do some research. I read that when no disc is inserted the 3DO should show the 3DO logo when powered on then after a bit either show an insert disc screen or a screen saver consisting of asteroids. I get none of this either with a disc in or out, the empty CD Tray in or out, even after an hour of sitting there I assume you do not have to have a controller plugged in for any of this to happen.... is my assumption correct? So I need the advice and help of the repair GURUs, should I go ahead and re-cap the whole thing? I do not see any obvious signs of caps bulging or leaking but I know that can be tricky sometimes as they may not look bad but end up being bad anyway. I'm leaning more toward the board since I am not getting pas the BIOS screen and the CD does spin and the laser assembly moves. Should I reflow solder joints just to make sure of good contact? Peeking around the internet I haven't found anyone with any issues like mine as most everyone says the get the insert disc or asteroid screens. even a few have said they get the no controller screen. Thank you for taking the time to read this, and thank you for any assistance!
  6. In case anyone who in interested isn't tracking... The 3DS, (specifically the New 3DS) has recently gotten ports of Stella, Prosystem, Handy, O2EM, Virtual Jaguar, 4DO, and more via RetroArch/LibRetro. Emulation of these systems run full speed: 2600 7800 Lynx Vectrex Odyssey2 Game & Watch Near full speed: CPS3 Interesting, but not fast enough to be considered playable: 3DO Jaguar These are not yet part of the official build, but can be found in posts by MrHuu in the thread at gbatemp. He plans to make a separate thread at some point, but as of the time of this posting, the builds are posted at page 270 (Stella, Vectrex, & Prosystem), page 273 (Handy, O2EM, VirtualJaguar, & 4DO), page 275 (Game & Watch), and page 279 (CPS3). MrHuu also posted a playlist generator here. Also interesting is that on a New 3DS (not XL), the screen size when set to "integer" is exactly the same as the screen size on a real Lynx.
  7. There were so many other games from back in the day that would have been better candidates to trigger a rating system. It kind of baffles me that this one started the rating system. How bad do you think this game is in comparison to the others at the time?
  8. One of my favorite "if I had a million dollars" pipe dreams is to have a road rash on the Jaguar. The 3DO Road Rash is the pinnace of the series (imo) and i'd love to see that ported to Jaguar CD someday. Are there any technical limitations that would stop the Jaguar from being able to handle that game? I think the top 3d games on the Jaguar (Skyhammer, Battlemorph, Battlesphere) show that the Jag is capable of graphics on that level, but I wonder if there is something about the way that game is coded that would make trying to run it on Jaguar a nightmare. Thoughts?
  9. Hey People, I have noticed that there is a video cartridge available for Japanese 3DO's that allows the user to play VCD's. Anyone ever attempted to set this up on a US model? What do I need? If I plug this sucker into the side of my NTSC 3DO will it be able to play VCDs? http://www.ebay.com/itm/JAPAN-NTSC-U-C-J-PANASONIC-REAL-3DO-FZ-FV1-FULL-MOTION-VIDEO-CD-ADAPTER-CIB-used-/221593125105?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item3397fac0f1 Would it play the Phillips CD-i VCD's or are those proprietary to that system? Were there commercially released "general use" VCD's or would I have to burn my own? Thanks!

    3DO cabinet

    From the album: Custom Arcade

    This cabinet houses a 3DO, Super Nintendo (region modded) with a Pro Fighter X disk system, a RetroPort (NES compatibility), and a RetroGen (Sega Genesis compatibility)!! It uses a 3DO to SNES controller adapter.

  11. The 3DO was released in fall 1993 for $600-700, IIRC. The Saturn was released in spring 1995 for $399, IIRC. The PlayStation was released in fall 1995 for $299, IIRC. (Please correct me on any of the numbers if I'm wrong.) My question is: Does anyone remember what the 3DO price had dropped to by spring and fall 1995? (Also, what was it at Christmas 1994?) Did it go below the Saturn and PlayStation prices as these systems were released?

  17. Hi all! I just got an used Panasonic FZ-1 3DO with a very strange noise. Sounds like a grinding noise when it reads the disc (also when you open and close the tray). I uploaded a video to youtube: http://youtu.be/sXzGFytUitA You can hear the noise at: 0:02 0:07 0:13 0:27 0:35 0:38 0:45 0:49 From 0:53 to 0:58 Actually, it reads the disks and I can play the games, but the noise is very annoying and it could mean that something inside is broken. What do you guys think? Thanks!
  18. Looking to trade for a 3DO Light Gun. I have a bunch of 3DO games as trade stock as well as a bunch of other stuff. If you have one (or two!) PM me and hopefully we can work something out! Thanks!
  19. Hi! I would like to buy a japanese 3DO in working condition. Please contact me if you want to sell! Best regards, Nick
  20. Let me know what you've got! I already have Star Control 2, Crash & Burn, Madden, Shockwave 2, Out of this World, The Incredible Machine, and a few others. Biggest wants right now are Road Rash and The Need for Speed, but I'm interested in just about anything. Thanks!
  21. I have a Panasonic M2 FZ-35S (VERY RARE) that was used as a kiosk at a local auto dealership. It is in Like New condition and everything is tested and working. It has the same underlying hardware as the 3DO M2 game systems that were never manufactured. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QeLGfeDHIYohttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ivogNG9jazk There were two games uploaded years later (never officially released) and I have both burnt to disc. One is a racing game and the other is a shmup. In theory, the M2 arcade titles would work if the bios could be modified, bootloader, etc. I have one of the arcade games but it doesn’t work on the stock unit. The system includes the power cable and uses standard VGA, s-video, composite cables. There’s a switch on the back to select your preferred video mode. I do not have a controller, but a standard 3DO controller has been verified as working. I removed the expansion plate (upper right rear) to see what was behind it. It turns out there was nothing there. For some reason I didn’t put it back on!? But I know I have it somewhere and will either ship it with the unit or drop it in an envelope and mail it separate if I can find it. I know I wouldn’t have thrown it out, but I just can’t seem to find it at the moment. It totally bugs me too! I’ll probably kick myself later for parting with this, but I’m trying to build out my collection and looking for systems that have more games, as I also like to play games and not just collect them. PLEASE NOTE: This system only has a couple games and MAY NEVER have anymore. It’s more geared toward the hardcore collector who must have every system. I’m willing to trade for any two of the systems below. They must be in very good condition, completely working and come with all the necessary controllers, cables, etc. Atari Jaguar + CD Neo Geo CD TurboDuo Please feel free to contact me with any questions, thanks.

  24. Does anyone have a different way of collecting? a "sub-collection" or just something cool they like to get they're games with? a sort of non-standard collection? Me, I enjoy having the price tag on my games, as long as they have a high price on them. I also enjoy having games in rental cases... I find that very odd. but its cool. :thumbsup:
