Wow, just stumbled on this doing a random search on 3DO. To be honest, I thought I'd been forgotten.:) 3 moves and lots of relocating of my collection made keeping up with the rest of the Collective's members difficult at best. Between that, and the lack of web space (Never could get stable access t...

The thumbstick is simple to clean inside. Simple water or diluted windex, and a cotton swab work wonders. All you really need is time and patience. Also, is it me or does anyone else have CD-i flashbacks seeing the new playstation move controller? Guess you gotta have balls (light up ones at that) t...

My version says it has english subtitles, but I can't get them to work. I have searched to forum for threads on the subject, but to no avail. Hmm, puzzled on this one.. tlh Interestingly, I found the 'english subtitles' offered on many vcds that I purchased over the years (most from Asia) to actual...

hmm... whats happening to the collective? Thats a darn good question. I've tried SMART FTP as suggested by Devin and I still cannot regain access to the space offered by him. After some recent PC issues, it has become difficult to say when and where the Collective can return. I really do want it bac...

Yeah, big ouch for that one's time.

Microids did SECRET MISSION, but I'd be hard pressed at the moment to think of another game. Do we count games released by UBISOFT after their merger?

Its NOT insane to be compelled to buy copies of a game you like. It IS insane to buy dozens of copies of a game you hate, then argue with yourself about how much you spend on them and never use them. Then agree not to buy anymore, but secretly plot how to sneak around behind your own back and buy mo...

As I recall that was the answer to my trivia Q a while back.

But I digress. MM did have alot of great titles (and a few not so greats) under it's belt.

Actually, thats the original release of Burn:Cycle. True to form it does come with the music CD extra, though I've yet to see a US release that didn't come with one. I've seen the ones that didn't come with the slip cover or envelope, but they've still got the music CD. Why not a few pix? http://www...

You know, there really isn't much out there thats free, and only a few pay programs that still provide the CD-i program needed to make it work. Nero Works, Cequadrant and Nero being the most supportive. NTI's whopping $2K price tag is a bit much, and the program is really lack luster anyhow. Best to...

Oh, what the heck, I had a second. This is a quick and dirty version, just so you get the idea. Done from a mid quality MPEG.

Why not instead just record the animation in dvd quality (most any decent cap card can do that), then use a program like VirtualDub to spit out the frames you want in BMP format. you can then edit the BMPs into your animation frames. Easy enough.
