not the awful Saturn Virtual Hydlide. Have you played this? Looks exactly like the MSX one but in 3D!

Ha, funny. Never really learned to appreciate Hydlide myself, I should give it a try again sometime. I’ll stick to the old 2D one though Smile.

Nice! Though I never ended the game, I started over and over again. Seem to remember my version had a major bug in it, so it wasn't possible to play it to the end.

If you try the game again, you could use the password generator I made (^_^)

Is that 3D game really for MSX. MSX can't make 3D. That can only console's for the fourth generation. Question

In this game you need to press CTRL or mouse to attack.

I think its a PC remake but do not be mistaken: MSX can do 3D. search for the doom for MSX thread and be amazed.

Indeed '3D' on the MSX, however those also represent some of the most unplayable games I have ever seen/played; it's a nice intellectual feat to make that kind of thing, but for real use better just make 2(.5)d games. Must say I like them better anyway :)

Oh yeah, because 3D is already implemented in the 80. But these Hydlide game that has 3d in the fourth generation . Because in the 80s 3D was slowly and it was not so to put an upper floor to 3D . For example Mario Kart or F-Zero for the SNES or SFC. Because SNES or SFC were the first who can. MS DOS have it also. For example, the game Wacky Wheels or Skunny Kart. Smile2

Trust me. If the V9990 would have made it in time on the turbo-R release MSX could definetly do 3D without many problems. The R800 CPU is so amazingly fast.

I am no expert on the VDP but I could imagine that if the VDP would be running at lets say 6-8 times the speed lets say 28 MHz it could do some pretty amazing thing in combination with a R800 CPU.
