Well, that's another one down.  (I may have been cheating)

 

  • YM Music and SFX at the same time (was either/none on the ST)
  • A for jump (as well as up)
  • Cheat option: (lives/time/invuln)
  • Scores load/save to eeprom
  • Fixed the glitchy sound

It's great to see these ports coming out. There must be a lot of effort behind these and it is truly a labor of love. Thanks to everyone who has worked to put these out. Now, I just need to try some of them out.

The people posting what I assume to be 'generic fuckhole comments' on my videos because they can't do anything worthwhile themselves should probably be aware that, as they are blocked, I can't read them either. So they'll never get approved, and nobody will ever see them, thus rendering them as worthwhile and useless as the people posting them. I don't block many people, so it's pretty damn obvious who they (he) is.

 

However, please continue wasting your time achieving little more than you usualy do :)

 

I will leave it as an exercise for the reader to calculate the sputum involved.

Excellent work.  Man - if Atari would have hired you in late 93, just think how large the Jag library could have been.

 

Crazy how after all these years (had my Jag since early 94), there are still some major shit holes attracted to the console.  I guess just best left ignored.

Cyrano, if you're looking for another project is there any chance you might consider Steel Talons for the ST for your next conversion?

As you're aware, it came out at the arcade first but was ported to Lynx, ST, and even Falcon. I loved the arcade and Lynx versions and it seems a shame that the Jaguar never got what could have been an excellent conversion.

Given the Jags 3D creds I always thought it could have done a good job of a flat shaded arcade flight sim. Sadly we never got to see that. Perhaps a conversion of the ST version but running at 13Mhz instead of 8 would go some way to fixing that?

I don't think there is an ST Steel Talons?

 

There is Thunderhawk, which is much, much better. And The Killing Cloud.

The whole "two faced, let's pretend to be nice" thing isn't going to work for you Jeff. Go away. Run back to your sycophantic fantasy fucktard facebook group where you continue to allow people to slag off and libel AtariAge, myself, Jagware and anyone else who has pointed out what an utterly toxic malignancy on the retro scene Kieren is. Please tell him the libel lawyer loves him, and to keep digging his own grave.

I just thought it was a decent game for you to port. No need to go full on psycho there buddy.
May I suggest some coffee?

Steel Talons was Falcon only was it not?

I seem to remember it being one of the supposed 'Flagship' titles Atari UK were promising that would showcase the Falcon hardware as a games platform and prove Atari were taking games support on Falcon seriously.

Still at least it finally got a release unlike Space Junk

Killing Cloud was all kinds of awesome.

Pity they had to pull the prisoner confession sequence from the final release though.

You and Lost Dragon are both correct, my apologies.  I'd never seen it on sale in shops on either Falcon or ST but saw the Falcon video and Google returned results that suggested it was an ST title.  Basically, all the websites claiming an ST release really meant it was released on Falcon.  Which is a shame, as I'm sure the ST could have done a good job.  Also, my copy of the TOSSEC archive doesn't have it either.  I should have researched before posting.

☺ No worries.

I seem to remember Bob Brodie telling various sites Steel Talons would be headed to the Jaguar....

I've seen people make unsubstantiated claims it was headed to the Panther...


It's down as a prototype for the 7800..

Little wonder confusion can crop up regarding which Atari formats it actually appeared on.

It's listed as ST on Wikipedia as well, so don't feel bad about any confusion.

This port of Ghosts n' Goblins looks cool, I'm only used to the NES version and awesome both SFX / Music are going at the same time.  Thanks for bringin' more solid releases to the Jaguar!

As usual, they'll be released skunk-locked on here before they head off to Gaztee.  Currently with the testers for a rigorous shake-down.

These ports still amaze me! So awesome to have all these classic games on the Jaguar.

 

By the way, if you ever need an additional tester, I have a shiny new Skunkboard. Well, maybe not shiny, but it is new. ;)

That brings up the question, how much harder would it be to port a Falcon game over to the Jaguar?
Steel Talons would surely shine on it. Also, I think it already supports the Jaguar controller, so the controls wouldn't even need to be modified. Though I am thinking that is probably the easiest bits.
Crown of Creation 3d would certainly shine on the Jag, though I think that still doesn't have a proper crack.
Mostly just curious how hard it would be to do a Falcon port. Seems you have the ST porting doen to a science!

Ghouls and Ghosts - without a doubt a game designed to get every coin out of your pocket in the arcade by being so bloody hard... Can we have an infinite lives option please, I never played this on the ST so don't know if it has a continue option built in, if not, I will need one as this was such a hard game. 

 

Amazing work seeing all these games on the Jaguar and all so playable as well, I can not thank you enough for bringing back so many great memories each time you choose the games to port, and then seeing them on a cartridge in a proper brilliant quality box is really the icing on the cake.
