Recently it's come to our attention that a number of people here and in other parts of the Jaguar community have been offering services for creating carts of current homebrew releases. By the term "Homebrew", this is referring to any active developer or publisher who is currently supporting the Jaguar (ie. currently releasing new games). The developers and publishers in question include but are not limited to the following:
Beta Phase Games
(Note: Any developers or publishers not on this list but who want to be, please contact me or post a reply to this thread and I'll add you.)
Since there still seems to be some confusion about this topic from both new and old members, here are a few rules to keep in mind before creating a thread here or making a request of other members.
1. Do not make public or private requests for reproduction carts or CDs of homebrew games by the above developers.
2. Do not offer services for creating carts or CDs for sale of any games released by the above developers.
3. Do not post links to or make requests for ROM or CD images of games that have not been freely released by the developer. If you are not sure about which games have been released in a free format by the developer, you can check the Jaguar Homebrew Projects and Atari ST Games Ported to the Jaguar threads, or ask the developer directly.
3. Games that have been released as a free ROM image or in another non-physical manner BY THE ORIGINAL DEVELOPER can be played on a flash cart, Skunkboard, or in an emulator. You can also create a reproduction cart or a CD FOR PERSONAL USE ONLY. This means that you are NOT allowed to sell reproduction carts or CDs of these games.
Violations of these rules will not be taken lightly, and will result in actions including the removal of posting or private message use on this site, or even an outright ban. If you are not clear about any of these rules, or if I have somehow missed any, please ask for clarification in this thread and I will update them accordingly.
