Over to Mike, i started by asking just how Bullfrog as a developer 'viewed' the Jaguar platform:
Mike:'The Jaguar arrive at Bullfrog, and nobody was especially interested in it except me.'
Next up, of course, was question of wether coding was ever started on Jaguar CD Magic Carpet?
Mike: 'I tried (in my spare time) for a while porting magic carpet to jaguar, but it just couldnt handle texture mapping, and the gourad shaded look that jaguar was famous for just didnt cut it. (I believe and this is rumour that Atari payed Bullfrog half a million for the rights to magic carpet on jaguar to make themselves, which I shook my head at, at the time due to the impossibility of the task, and of course Magic carpet for Jaguar never materialized)'
So there we have it and sorry Groovy Bee etc, but i was'nt going on 'pure speculation' as you put it, like i said i was in contact with the key people, i just needed confirmation, which we now have....
