    The 3DO experience

    Posted by AJ on Jan 30th 2023

    It’s super easy to install, it doesn’t require any cutting, or soldering, and is easy to configure and get running. Throw a 128GB sd card in there and you can load up a majority of the 3DO library with no problem. As of this time the firmware is 1.0, and it has all the basic features you would expect. There’s room for improvement on the software side of things, but as far as compatibility goes, it’s been a 100% hit. It also has a built in save manager which was sorely lacking from the fz1 bios, as well as the ability to back up save data directly to the SD card. If you’re interested in the 3DO, you can’t do better than this.
