Area 51 ... powered by the Jag?

Just so you know, I copied this from Wikipedia ...
In laymens terms, how "tweaked" was the Jag hardware to run games like this? I assume it had to be a fair amount, or they would have tried to port it to the Jag cd (I could be wrong) In any event, I really like Area 51 (it is one of my fav light gun games ) and I think its cool that the Jag saw life (albeit brief) in the arcades.Atari Games licensed the Atari Jaguar's chipset for use in its arcade games. The system, named COJAG (for "Coin-Op Jaguar"), replaced the 68000 with a 68020 or MIPS R3000-based CPU (depending on the board version), and added a hard drive and more RAM. It ran the lightgun games Area 51 and Maximum Force.
