Modded 3DO

Recommended Posts

Adam Koralik with a 3DO he had modded.  Definitely worth checking out and seeing all that he did should one consider using (somewhat) original hardware going forward.

Get a Panasonic 3DO FZ-1 from Japan and there is an A-B switch for 240P and 480i out of the box.  As well, the MNEMO ODE does not require soldering for install in the FZ-1.  I have this setup already, and I left my NiB FZ-10 alone.  Also RGB vs S-video output difference on 3DO is negligible.

I've had a "fully loaded" FZ-10 with the USB mod for several years now and while I used to love the longboxes, going digital for this system just makes sense. Every disc image I've played has worked fine. I haven't done an RGB mod, though. S-Video output on a crisp CRT is plenty good.

I'm not a big fan of modding systems that are less common and expensive. I rather keep them original.

 

Even for common-as-hell stuff like the PS1, I repair the optical drive rather than adding some modern solution to replace it. Did that with three of the four PS1s I own. For me, having things like pixel-perfect HDMI output and being able to play images from SD/CF or USB feels like emulation to me. That's not the experience I want from real hardware. But I understand many people see this different.

To each their own.  Definitely keeping systems original is also a perfectly legitimate choice for sure.  However, should one want to mod their 3DO, this provides a good base about one can do.

3DO and Philips CD-I.....

 

2 consoles that defy how things are built electronically.

 

Take hard ass, sandwich it between 2 pieces of plastic.....

 

Enjoy.
