    I'll assume you didn't reach page 4 before writing that.

    A half-assed port. Or the RAM allocation problem. We'll never know the answer.

    Considering they've patched it numerous times to try and fix it, I'm willing to bet it's the RAM allocation problem.

    Yes this place is great for learning. This is where I learned hexadecimals. Tomathious taught me them in some thread. I love that guy.


    BRNexus have you decided upon which console to get?

    If you're interested in the 3DO and think you might enjoy it, then I'd say get one now. There aren't that many in circulation and the people who have them tend to hold onto them. Saturns, both NA and Japanese, are very plentiful and easy to find. As far as games go, I think going Japan only is a smart decision. Games are 9 times out of 10 cheaper and come in regular jewel cases, so you don't have to worry about the longbox being reduced to a fine powder by the time it arrives at your house. And if the thought of prices climbing worries you, then just get a modchip installed.

    No, it's unbiased analysis. The only fanboyism is people who claim that Hyperstone Heist and Bloodlines are actually as good as their SNES counterparts.

    Burned CDs worked on both of my FZ-1s and on the Goldstar I briefly had, as long as I used high-quality discs (Taiyo Yuden).

    One of my FZ-1s had to warm up for a while before it'd read a burned disc well, but the other one does it with no problem right out of the box. The Goldstar was surprisingly tolerant too, considering their reputation for struggling with burned discs.

    As tempting as it is, I won't use CDRs in my FZ-1. I don't want to risk wearing out the laser. CDRs definitely did a number on my Sega CD.

    I'm going to go against the grain here and recommend the 3d0 It has plenty of good games, a very under rated console. The best part about it is that it has no copy protection so you can try out tons of games for very little cost.

    IMO Saturn has a far better library.

    Better than Daytona USA CE?
    I might give it a chance, Daytona is my favorite racing game on Saturn (even over Sega Rally which is excellent).

    Don't get it unless you have the steering wheel, i find it pretty much unplayable using the d pad and the analog controller isn't much better.

    Pfft stock car racing.

    Never played Touring Car, but it has amazing music. Almost on-par with F-Zero GX's music.
