#4133629 Brand New Atari Jaguar Pro Controllers-Production Campagin

Posted by CyranoJ on Yesterday, 6:54 PM

I don't know if that's sell or tactile sensation.

 

It's probably sell. You seem to be all about that.




#4133105 ejagfest 2018 (November 3rd and 4th)

He needs to bring that sucka to the AA store! :)

Any idea when it will be ready?

 

Well, considering it only takes a month to make a game it'll be done when it is ready for people to play - and not a second before.

 

If you find anything that needs fixing at the event, please let me know. There is one rather obvious issue I am aware of ;)

 

Hopefully early next year. Even after I deem it 'done' it'll have a few months in the hands of people to make sure all is OK.

I like turtles.




#4132938 The CAR Demo - available for download

Something I wondered was about the alignment with the Jaguar. For some reason random games on the Jag will have a border and alignment issues on the left or the picture will be pushed up and I can't see high scores. But with other systems it's fine. So I imagine it must be the Jag and not the TV. Some games even have an alignment adjustment setting on them too.

 

There is no 'screen buffer' that is always displayed.  The system can display graphics on whatever lines it wants to. Each game can be differently adjusted.

Linkovitch will be bringing Reboot's upcoming "The Last Strike" to ejagfest 2018 for all those unable to make it to PRGE :)

Aren't those "homebrew prints" meaning they weren't retail cartridges and/or discs when the Atari Jaguar was considered a "current" system, and only came when the access code 64020141 (which in 7 hexadecimal-digit code was 3d0dead) was tried and published as a way to easily make homebrew Jag games.

 

 

Wow. Yes. It was 'that simple' :)

And you said "games" - don't post clarify now ;)




#4131744 New version of ATARI 8 bit emulator released!

Posted by CyranoJ on Thu Oct 11, 2018 9:22 PM

 
If it's accurate enough to run the games and apps you want to use, that's good enough.  Especially if it has a really accessible interface, which is the unique value it provides.


And there's the issue. This was sold bitd as being able to do all that. It wasn't.


#4131692 New version of ATARI 8 bit emulator released!

Posted by CyranoJ on Thu Oct 11, 2018 7:45 PM

It wasn't there when I bought it decades ago and it still isn't.

Why you'd prefer to run 800 inaccurate emulated sessions instead of one near perfect is beyond me.


#4130472 Jaguar Custom Game Hard Cases

Posted by CyranoJ on Tue Oct 9, 2018 9:54 PM

I was going to reply earlier and say hey CyranoJ you make some good games as do others. I like to be able to display them and it does make them easier to access than flashing them each time or burning them.

 

Yeah, no problem with that. The issue is this artwork ends up with ebay and etsy scumbags.




#4128743 Songbird presents Loopz for the Atari Jaguar

Posted by CyranoJ on Sun Oct 7, 2018 1:36 AM

It has been a pleasure to work with yet another publisher to bring an additional fully licensed game to the platform.

 

Thanks everyone for the kind and supportive words, and I hope you all enjoy driving yourselves crazy playing Loopz!




#4126971 Mystery Jag Project #1 ?

Posted by CyranoJ on Thu Oct 4, 2018 6:57 AM

 

Isn't it Friday somewhere in the world? Make the announcement already! :P

 

Well, it is 10:27pm here on Thursday night, so yes. NZ is already there ;)




#4126798 Aaron the Aardvark (WIP)

Posted by CyranoJ on Wed Oct 3, 2018 10:07 PM

It is probably 16 bit, and has very dark not quite black pixels. Flood fill the image with yellow or something and I bet they show up.




#4125610 New Starcat Devocean project?

Posted by CyranoJ on Tue Oct 2, 2018 5:35 AM

@CyranoJ: What was said in this post was already helpful to me.

The thing is, I still love the Jag, but my opinion is not enough. The team has limited resources and doing a Jag version is a lot of extra work.

If nobody cared, there would be no point in doing it.

 

If nobody cared, you wouldn't be doing it. You obviously care. What else matters?




#4125561 New Starcat Devocean project?

Posted by CyranoJ on Tue Oct 2, 2018 3:03 AM

Well, all I can say is this:

 

IF you love making games

    AND you want to make a game

    AND you want to make it for the Jaguar

    AND (as you say in your first post) ((you know you won't get rich) AND (this doesn't matter to you))

    THEN nothing anyone says here matters.
