I knew of the 3DO card for PC but know little about it -
- how does playing 3DO games using it compare to a 3DO? Are frame rates etc dependent on the power/speed of the PC?
- How does one connect 3DO controllers to a PC?
- can 3DO analogue joysticks be used still?
- how do the graphics look displayed on a PC monitor?

I'd never seen the 3DO MPEG peripheral connected so didn't realise the thing was so huge!
It's all on-board connectors. Basically it's a full 3DO on a ISA Card, and uses the PC for VGA adapter. So, the performance, frame-rate, etc, is exactly the same.

I'm a bit jealous of that there. I don't look seriously for one myself but every time I feel like picking one up, I can only ever seem to find the FZ-10 versions.
Retro is a state of mind, and cares not for your puny concepts like dates and calendars.
