Wow, this kicked off.
well here we go (and yes, I just woke up)
I don't care that people make reproductions of games on the Jaguar, with exception to homebrew games.
This is true on other systems as well, and people generally respect the homebrew authors' wishes and don't make physical copies of their games. Even in the cases where a game was released in a "limited" run and is no longer available for purchase. Making copies of games without the authors' permission will just discourage them from continuing to develop for the Jaguar.
As for the ST ports, I had no intention of making them available in cart form initially, but many people asked for physical copies of the games so they could enjoy them on real hardware, and the usual nonsense of asshats selling them in cart on ebay at $80+ was occurring more and more often, so I discussed it with Albert and we made them available. While they are ports of ST games, a significant amount of work is still required to bring them over to the Jaguar, in many cases they have major enhancements.
It's funny (and hypocritical, even - oh such sweet irony) that someone here berating me about exactly this has a store on Etsy and Ebay with over 100 reproductions for sale, and over 1100 items sold on Etsy alone - none of which they have permission for.
Reading here, the consensus is apparently that other people can and should be allowed to make copies of these games (and sell them) just fine, and yet to have a "proper" release with a nice label and guaranteed production quality is "ooh, so bad". There is your double standard (or is it triple?)
The solution is simple: I've asked Albert to stop selling them, which will also allow him to focus his energies on homebrews and licensed titles for the Jaguar.
But I would like to mention that prototypes and unfinished games have been distributed and even sold (and continue to be sold) by many parties on the Jaguar without permission, and nobody bats an eye at those. I don't care about them, as long as they are marked as such when being sold. For example, do you think Warner gave permission for Tiny Toons? Nobody seemed to care about that when it was released.
What about this current list from B&C? Anyone complaining about that?
