I recently purchased and received Xenon 2 from AtariAge via Ebay.  With the CD unit in place, I can't always get the game to load - all I get is a black screen after the Jaguar logo is displayed.  I would say I'm successful getting the game to load about 40% of the time.  Game works fine after it loads.

 

I have been in contact with Al and he is aware of the issue.  He did ask me to try the game without the CD unit attached.  I also plan on giving the cartridge slot for the CD attachment a good cleaning.

 

Searching the forums, it looks like this issue has come up with other games - Towers 2, Flip Out and I-War to name a few.

Has anyone else had this issue with Xenon 2?

 

Thanks.

Clean your Jag, and Jag CD, both sides.  The Jaguar is one of the most dust sensitive consoles i've ever owned.  Never leave the cart slots exposed, or games out in the open.

 

Once fully cleaned properly with 90% isopropyl alcohol, it should work fine.

Thanks Travis.  As a longtime Jaguar owner (since 1994 for the Jaguar and 1995 for the CD attachment), this is the first game to give me a problem.  Recent purchases (Songbird's Protector SE and Piko's Switch Blade) both loaded fine after I ran into the problem with Xenon.

It's still good advice.
No carts go near my Jag until the contacts are gleaming!
