Notes About Scores and Comments

  1. Points will not be deducted for audio skips or stutters. 90% of these skips or stutters are caused by the CPU core currently used by 4DO on your computer's processor. The core is likely being maxed out by the emulated game. Turning off Scaling Modes and increasing the audio buffer on the advanced tab can help reduce these problems.
  2. We will understand that no comments means that there are no issues. Usually the only comments allowed if the game is perfect, is if you are stating that a certain version fixed a bug.
  3. If you feel that some additional info would help a user, put a link in the game notes to a detailed note in the section at the bottom of the Compatibility List. The Compatibility List should be kept clutter free and short. The detailed notes section can be as long as necessary.
  4. Your opinion about a game is unnecessary on a Compatibility List. Try a 3DO Forum for those kinds of discussions.

Detailed Compatibility Notes

Here are some game specific detailed notes.

Alone In The Dark

Some feedback from anonyme-x22 in the forums:

Tried alone in the dark,
The text written on books, etc, are unreadable.
The audio is weird, in voices, there are aretefacs, like samplerate change at the begining of each voice, and loop when the playing is on hold waiting the player to turn the page.
Also when reading books, the music is looping.
often the music goes unhearable, forcing the user to reboot the game.
Using the crop border produce artefact, like the picture resize itself whatever it's diplaying, so you have the logo resized, a menu resized,etc...

Crash 'n Burn

When selecting to start a race, sometimes the game will still reboot similar as it did before. Additionally, audio for video clips in racer selection screen sometimes improperly synced. The taunting preview of racers before starting a race also sometimes incorrectly super-imposes itself over screen elements.


Versions Prior to had the incorrect speed for this game. The original game also suffered from bad frame rate. Turning up the CPU Clock Speed on the advanced tab of 4do settings makes this game have a nice frame rate. Turning on High-Resolution Rendering also enhances this game significantly. You might need to increase the Audio Buffer if you enable these enhancements.

Drug Wars

This game is fully playable with the game pad only. There is no mouse or light gun support in 4DO yet. Using the gamepad is terrible with most American Laser Games titles.

Seal of the Pharaoh

I've notice for a long time that in the core, there is a slight audio bug that happens with many games. Some sound samples start with a very "clicky" sound, almost like when audio is too loud and clips. This game demonstrates this behavior the most. It happens on every step. I am documenting this fact as it would be a good place to start for someone who wanted to attempt to fix this bug.

Super Street Fighter II Turbo

As of version, the game seems to be back on par to how smooth it used to play. There seems to be occasional frame drops, but this is the same behavior as how the game runs in FreeDO.

Super Wing Commander

Version fixed a bug where the controls are non-responsive. This was happening because all 6 controllers were being emulated all the time. Starting with this version, only emulated controllers that have bindings will be connected to the emulated console. Having Bindings on 6 controllers will cause the controls to stop working again though.
