I think I read somewhere that Virtua Fighter 32X supported widescreeen, though I may be confuse. It might have been some other oddball feature (for the time).

I'll tell ya though, it is so eerie how you guys think about the exact same stuff as me. I had wondered this exact question 2 days ago, and was thinking vbout how I might present it. My curiosity wasn't limited to widescreen though, I want to know about several different features only supported by a minority of games, such as:

Which games support widescreen mode?
Hi-Res mode?
System Link? - I Think this is covered somewhere
Netlink? - I Think this is covered somewhere
Mission Stick?
Analog Control?
Steering Wheel?
Mouse?
Floppy Drive?

That way, you could weigh the usefulness of a peripheral against its price when considering a purchase. Also a database of info about the peripherals and features, such as Why does it seem like you could connect 2 mission sticks together? Why can you unplug a 3D pad's cord at both ends? Can you share a broadband connection with your Saturn's Netlink via a null modem cable to your computer's modem?

Do I need to pick a certain option in those games or do I just adjust the aspect ratio on my HDTV and the game compensates?

I have a 27" CRT HDTV. I can hook up the Saturn with Svideo or AV cables.

If anyone wants to tell me the following info for 3D Baseball (US / Saturn):

1) # of players
2) if it has the "BACKUP" logo on the back of the box (and # of blocks used if listed, but thats only working design games i'm pretty sure)
3) if the game has any device logo's (arcade racer, 3d control pad, etc)


all info can be found on the back cover of the game.


I've got a document missing that list bit of into and hopefully it'll answer most of your questions (minus the wide screen thing which i might look for in the future in the next compatability run i do)
