Want to boldly explore some games on the Jaguar?
How about 50 roms with six 2600 roms a piece in each selectable 1 through 6 on the keypad?
Most of these don't work. Out of 300 or so games I hope to find ... about 12 that work halfway decent. If you do test these, let us know what games are playable to some degree or mostly all.
As I mentioned before all of these were selected because they did not have hardware detection in their code but use another method of software hit detection. So it stands a chance of working. (Except for the last four games in image 50 where I threw in some to see how they would display but know they have regular hit detection.)
So far we have Hangman, Flag Capture, and that Mario Brothers fan game that played just about right. Astrosmash mostly worked, and Frogger and Gorf are playable in their creative way while missing some display features. So those are some examples of what we are looking for.
I can say for rom vvcs-01-0 the graphical demos at selection 1 (Core demo) and 5 (4K 4U) display a lot of the effects. I'm impressed it worked as well as it did.
Pictures of the games in play (compared to the rom played on my 2600 emulator on my laptop in the lower right hand corner) are in the file "01-0"
Don't have a skunkboard or other rom loader? Do you have a way to load BJL style? You can convert these roms to the BJL format using JIFFI. Also can convert these to CD files, but that would be a lot of CDs. Anyway, no need to be left out of the fun.
