FastFood64 PC is a bigger install package than Rogue Squadron 3D on the PC.
So I expect this game to be even better than Rogue Squadron.



You based your game expectations on file size? Nevermind the totally different genres of games or the fact that a team of developers at factor 5 and LUCAS ARTS developed that game vs 1 person/me making Fast Food 64. A retro remake of a 2600 game.

Get out of here Chris

An interesting variation on the "more bits must be better" argument

Update: as someone on the Atari jaguar fans forum has received a copy of Jag zombies can we assume you have shipped the currently "less than reliable" version.

I'd be interested in hearing a discussion about this. Discussion is FUN. Didn't he do this with Frogz, shipping broken carts, then updating the CD and later updating the cart?

There should be a warning label put on all of his games that says "HEALTH WARNING: This game should not be played by anyone suffering from an inability to handle games that are obviously incomplete, have gameplay breaking bugs, and excessive screen tearing. Should you experience symptoms caused by any of these issues, please see a doctor immediately."

Discussion only gets FUN when you get involved.

Someone referred to you in JSIII as a loveable asshole.

I must say I have never seen a loveable asshole before, but when I google it all kinds of porn comes up

I'll be fair and answer your question. A few less than reliable carts prepared by one of my colleagues did go out. But rest assured I have discontinued the game and am working hard on a revision at this very moment.
Anyone who is not satisfied with the game whatever ROM version they recieve is entitled to a full refund or an updated copy. Whichever they choose.

A little piece of info FYI while you are trying to make me out to be a sham, out of the 200+ copies of FF64 (my other game y'all shit all over) I sold guess how many people asked for a refund?

Take a wild guess

Not entirely sure why you'd ask me this question right here, I gave it a few shots, gave you my opinions on it and also gave my short take on the Jag fans group.  You know it's better than your previous works, the concept is good, I do love that dire wolf graphic, but it just needs more work overall with controls and sound.

It just seemed like you may have been calling it Jagtrash there. Sorry I wasn't trying to put you on the spot, I just needed clarification. I do appreciate your feedback and you will be receiving an updated copy. :)

On a semi related topic does anyone have video of Starcats' old zombie shooter? Or a link to the free iso of Lost Treasures where it was featured. I had it once, but can't remember what the game looked or played like.

I dont even remember what the name of it was.

Gosh, I must be privileged as the great God of coding (in that people look at his code and say "God Almighty...") has deemed me worthy of a reply.

From your statement you intend shipping out both sets of carts to people, and then wait for them to complain - relying on people not bothering to do so. Like the scam detailed in lock stock and 2 smoking barrels, where they send out refund cheques marked "refund for the purchase of one hole piercing dildo (large)" or some such, knowing that people wouldn't present them for cashing.

As to frogz64 you can say whatever you want about the sales - a lot of people have piles, doesn't mean I want them. Does that include the Xmas reissue, the cart and disc release?

Oops, I realise I've included more than one question in a post - which one are you going to answer as you only address the least important one in any reply? Damn, now that's three.

I'm impressed in one way by your hucksterism, managing to find a rich vein of game encumbered people with disposable income. More people than went for retropia on the PC that had, what was it, 3 sales in its 18 month lifetime. Damn, four.

Jeff, you are not a commercial studio, so why are you trying to act like you are - setting deadlines for release? Concerning yourself with packaging more than the actual game? You have no deadlines to meet unless you've invested money in the pre production that wasn't disposable and are trying to make it back as soon as you can. You know, as you messaged to me in the frogz aftermath.

Truth is, you are a tiny fish in a very small pond that tries to make themselves look bigger. In this case you've, yet again, shown you've come up short in the actual delivery department.

My money would be on question three...

Im not acting like a big studio. I know Im a small fish. Im still trying to put out new content for the Jag. Thats all that matters to me. Im fixing JagZombies. And I never spoke of Frogz. I was talking about Fast Food 64.

Frogz didnt even sell 100 copies.

And of course Retropia didnt sell anything.

Nobody buys homebrew PC games

I guess I'm one of the lucky few as well. I got my "less than reliable" cart this afternoon. I'm not even going to open it. Just going to wait patiently for the updated version to arrive.

Cool - I'll start whipping out some demos or broken releases and put them on cart so you can also buy those.  I need some extra spending cash.

Don't bother unless you're going to release the sources too.
