Absolutely! but wait, which part? The actual conversion or hooking it up with Gaz? =D

 

Seriously, thanks! All the contributions have helped make this whole thing blow up far beyond what I had anticipated in giving away.

 

:thumbsup:

 

Lets do it again next year, this was FUN!

Don't I even get a "thank you" for Xenon ? :P

 

I know some people think I can't read, but Driving Crazy is a lot of fun!

 

Good luck, everyone!

 

Thanks Cyrano, for Xenon ;) and for the kind words on Driving Crazy. I'm also sending the winner a fridge magnet and a book mark, cuz why not?

 

I've entered every day but this one (figured it would seem bad if I happened to win). It's been a lot of fun, and extremely cool how much excellent and rare stuff has been given away! I wanted... y'know, all of it, but ya don't always get what ya want.

 

Cheers,

Smeg

Yes - it was a great contest and I think got entries from a lot of Jaguar fans who are otherwise lurkers.

 

The collection of items donated was extremely impressive - I think the donaters should be congratulated on their generosity.

Also, thanks to everyone who entered to win and congratulations to all the winners! Without everyone involved above, the amazing amount of gifts wouldn't have been possible. Support these guys, they're awesome!

Even though I didn't win it was a pleasure taking part, it's amazing what can happen when all the bad is removed from the 'scene' at Xmas.

Thanks for sharing Clint. Just checked it out. As with the TRF ROM I realise how much I was drooling over screenshots back in the day and imagination going wild. For example I thought you could drive through the city, not realizing it was just the background graphics. ;-) Ah well, in any case interesting to see where the game started.

Thanks for that Clint :)

Other than the wheels/steering not springing back, for me it controls much better, and the framerate is comparatively phenomenal compared to the slideshow that the release version ended up having :( Such potential for a good arcade racer wasted.

I appreciated the contest too :) I tried to enter every day, but somehow missed two. One was definitely my fault for forgetting, but I can't work out how I missed the other one...maybe I slept too long after NYE festivities ;)

So, given the other question worked for CF, is there any change of a release of the 2600 emulator ROM?
(I'd love the soundtracks too, but I figure I've been following the story of the emulator for almost 20 years, I'm so keen to see / play it)

You asked for it and so here you go because emulators and stuff. No but seriously if you want to run it with Virtual Jaguar or Project Tempest you will need to run this one through jiffi first. That's what I did now it runs on both emulators.

It ran perfectly fine as is with Virtual Jag on the Mac. Do you have the latest version of VJ? With your comments about a bunch of games not working, I wonder if you need to update.

Yep. I have the latest build. Got a red screen on the version Clint posted with both emus. then ran I it through jiffi and it runs perfectly now on both VJ and PT.  I don't really know what the deal is ????

Again as with the Checkered Flag Alpha if you run it through jiffi first, it will work in the emulators just fine.

It works fine in VJ anyway, same as the CFA rom does.

I must have an older version of VJ because I could never get it past the intro title/game screen under emulation and hangs if I select anything, which is what I meant by not working under emulation.
