Re: Some new Jag

I loved Myst, so many great memories trying to complete that with my best mate. However Elansar just isn't very good I am afraid, such a shame as I was REALLY excited about it when I first heard about it. Firstly, and most importantly, it's just far too short - I completed it in under 20 minutes on...

Oh yeah, I was going to add it is not easy to come by a Skunkboard. I had heard that there was work on a new flash cart by the scene but I don't know how far along that is. Plus I recall reading about how the Jag community don't like the idea of flash carts because they are afraid people are going ...

Doesnt matter how old a concept is. What matters is if its possible to create at the time you come up with it or not. Id rather support and old concept being created later than is possible, than support a concept thats been done over and over for 30 years. Im curious to see more of this on the Jagu...

This is what i ment by more advanced capabilities of the jaguar than old school arcade type games. This looks very interesting. Not bad for a 29 year old game concept on a 20 year old console ;-) DrTypo is really putting all those years of "this stuff is hard" and "stay off the 68k" nonsense to bed...

Interesting new game demo

DrTypo has released a really nice demo of his forthcoming Rescue On Fractalus clone for the Jaguar. Featuring a speedy and smooth height map landscape effect, it's already got some of the major game features in there. Take a look at the thread on AtariAge: http://www.atariage.com/forums/topic/207018...

Yeah, most of the Homebrew games are so small they can be loaded directly into the on board memory of the Jaguar. That's mostly by design though and also the legacy of BJL/Jag Server. The desire to spread games far and wide means targeting the Jag's memory for a title means lots of people are going...

I really like games that let you make your own levels. :) I'm not sure how easy it is to share then just now, though, as they are saved to Memory Track and there doesn't seem to be a tool to fully manage those carts yet. It should be possible to create a tool for Jag CD that gave you bjl-style comm...

So most homebrew games on the jaguar only load once? I see, i did not know that. That does like you say probably make cd-r's more strainful stuff less significant yes. Yes, most CD homebrews are written as single-load BJL type games, they work nicely from CD as you just fire them up with a little l...

But they dont put extra strain on the hardware itself, that was my point about cd-r. I'm not so sure there's any excessive wear and tear on the jag CD using CD-R media. Maybe if you're playing copied games that have several minutes of CD audio on there or cinepak video, but a single 2mb maximum of ...

I would love to own a jaguar cd, but even if the price of buying one new off BE Electronics or from that other atari shop online is decent, shipping and import related charges keeps me from getting one so far. Even then, i would require a cd to be glass mastered as you called it, if i was to buy a ...

3DO Experience brings a valid point, Jag CD owners are much fewer than jaguar owners.. But they're also the most hardcore of fans and collectors. There are few serious Jaguar collectors who do not own the CD unit. Away from that, Jaguar gaming fans are likely to own a skunk board, BJL or something ...

Getting back to the CD vs Cart.... I have the Jag CD add-on, but do feel that carts seem to be better for Jag owners simply because there are so many fans out there with no CD unit. There are compelling reasons for cart releases. There are plenty of our friends at the ST/Falcon demo parties that ow...

What you just posted is more akin to fraud to me. Exactly - that is how the term "rip off" is used by them and the rest of the nation to mean fraud. But you know, I feel we're getting away from the thread topic possibly... although if anyone wants to discuss our trio of Golden Girls, I'm only a PM ...

Impulse X - available now

As there's a KM:F thread, I thought it was only right Matthias got a plug for his nice new game. It's an Arkanoid clone and a port from the Falcon030 computer, originally written by Duranik of Native/Sturmwind fame. All the info you need is here: MD Games Impulse X page (English): http://www.mdgames...

Many collectors of retro games, like myself, prefer cartridge for the obvious benefits that format provides on small retro-size games like this, and they are also more collectible and gives an entirely different feel from a cd... A cd is bland and boring, a physical cartridge gives a lot more chara...
