#4015886 The truth about a certain individual and his slanderous accusations!

Posted by omf on Thu Apr 26, 2018 5:27 PM

I have become aware of a post by a certain individual on his own private Facebook group where only people are allowed to reside that agree with his ideals and beliefs.  If you disagree with his delusional mind even slightly than you are instantly banned from the group.


Hence I have been banned. 


So as I cannot voice my anger there, I am posting here, knowing full well that he will be informed soon enough by one of his delusional followers.




This delusional individual is well known to spew countless lies on a range of subjects to suit his goals, in this case the slanderous accusation that I have sold copies of Battlesphere Gold at Jagfest UK, which is what is being referred to as 'at retro gaming events'.


For the record this is what actually happened:

I can’t remember the exact discussion due to it being many years ago, however the subject of BSG was being discussed, which went on to the subject of Thunderbird saying it was difficult and very expensive to make jaguar cartridges.   For whatever foolish reason, I chose to voice my correct opinion that it was a simple matter and relatively cheap to produce such a device.  With this said I demonstrated the fact using parts that I had at the show. 

This was back when painter was being produced and I sold a load to Nick Harlow at the show for him to sell in his shop so i had various parts there at the time.


There was only ever one of these made at the show on a socketed board I had pre prepared with sockets.  It was most definitely not sold to anyone and came back home with me after the show had finished.


Because I am so sure about this and what actually happened that day,  I invite anyone to post proof to the contrary,  without any hard feelings towards them in any way from me.  Why am I doing / asking this, well it is very simple. 

There is nothing to post because it did not happen.


This is not the first time this has been brought up on his questionable little group of delusional people over on Facebook.  Previous times I have let it slide because quite frankly I can’t be arsed with his delusional behavior and I have better things to do than attempt to fight this inaccurate slander, but as he insists on being a retard I am taking action to set the facts straight once and for all.



As he seems intent on accusing me of pirating and profiteering on BSG copies that I have apparently sold it seems only fair that I do the same with actual proof.


As everyone should be aware, there are still quite a few good people in the jaguar community and give away what they have made for free.  Looking at said delusional individuals ebay shop you can clearly see that he is attempting to make profit from selling free software.  If it was being sold as non profit I would expect the item price to be at the VERY MAXIMUM £2, 10p for a blank cd and a piece of a4 paper, some printer ink and a cheap cd case and possibly a small postage fee, but yet various peoples work they have given away for free is being sold for £24.99, that’s £23 profit going into this retards pocket





Don’t be stupid, download this stuff yourself and burn it yourself using JiFFI available here: http://reboot.atari..../jiffi_1.42.zip

A simple google search will reveal much of this stuff where you can download it for nothing yourself

For example, the creator of Jagmarble and Jagmania, Matthias Domin has kindly given away these games for free on his webpage, there IS NO NEED TO PAY FOR THEM, if you have paid for them you need to demand a refund from the person you bought them from.






So as far as I can see, this delusional individual accuses others of being a pirate, when he is actually a pirate himself and has no issues about selling other people’s work to make a quick buck at their expense.  I am 100% sure the authors of this software were not contacted for permission to sell their software.


All that is left to say is make your own mind up, don’t take sides based on one person’s point of view, make sure you do your own research if you are passionate about a particular subject.  Google is your friend, there is much information about peoples accomplishments and fails (some more than others), during your decision making process, you may want to look into what he and i have actually produced for the community, there will be a clear difference.


if you are siding with this persons lies, Great.

if you are siding with my account of the events, Great

Did this come out on a cart? Jag cd is a dieing breed.

yes indeed it did

#4015150 Will We Ever See a Re-Release of Painter?

Posted by omf on Wed Apr 25, 2018 4:07 PM

Its been 25 years since the original release of Painter on the Atari ST.

please do not let kieren hawken have easy acces to the community levels, he does not deserve them. 

i know this game has been discussed on his questionable facebook group that if you have another opinion to his you are intantly banned.


that being said all the best for whatever plans you have.

#4013337 Would this stepdown voltage converter work in the UK?

Posted by omf on Mon Apr 23, 2018 6:09 AM

no that would be a 3d print job which i could do for you i guess, the proper coleco plug is not manufactured any more.  the power supply i was mentioning was a din socket so would require a hole drilling in the case


the power supply part number is AP12UV-01

it outputs +5, +33 (not needed), +12, -5

ther does not appear to be any on ebay at the moment though but you will probably get one under £10 however, google it, ther are some pictures


it does 100 - 240 ac input so your good whatever voltage

@omf - in the beginning I tried but it immediately broke everything for some reason but that was when I very first started in the beginning and was ignorant to a lot of things so may have to give it another go

if you would like to give it another go, you can contact me directly for support. i don't mind helping people who actually use it :)

#3911762 The (RND*command questions x infinity<<16) Help Thread

Posted by omf on Thu Dec 14, 2017 2:53 AM

1, you would need to handle this yourself, i do not believe there is any functionality to do this automatically


2, you could probably add or subtract 1to the scale sections of the object list.  NOTE: scaling objects leaves the collision box as it is. you need to scale that separately.  use my list editor for the correct scaling values


3 you would need to control this manually, setting the gfxbase to the required address to the frame you want, there are a few examples of this going around, if you wan find any then i can provide something

#3859227 Atari JagDuo PCB discovered!

Posted by omf on Mon Oct 2, 2017 5:05 AM

Yeah, I'm not sure. The only problem with populating it is I don't think any remaining stock exists of the Tom and Jerry chips. Everything is still readily available for the most part.

as the netlists for those chips exist, it is theoretically possibly to create another batch of these


i have no idea how hard a task that would be or if the netlist files are the latest ones in existence either

#3855929 Another Release From Piko Interactive

Posted by omf on Wed Sep 27, 2017 12:59 AM

we decided to do our PCB without RAM saving to keep pricing low; so never thought about testing the high score screen.


can i just point out that an eeprom either 93lc46 / 93lc86 is a relatively tiny priced item and would have been $3 absolute maximum depending on which one used, probably less.


my last calculations were:

93lc46: £0.26

93lc86: £0.62

#3854275 Orion re-releases pre-orders now open

Posted by omf on Sun Sep 24, 2017 8:03 AM

Talk about late to the party. I did submit an email/order, but I wasn't sure if the 23(today) was the cutoff as in no more or none taken after the 23rd. No hard feelings if I'm late, lesson learned for last time

im sure making 1 extra board on this occasion wont kill me

Posted by omf on Thu Sep 14, 2017 5:48 AM

unfortunately 'fools' will still buy this,  some 'fools' will even think this is the best thing ever.


if these people have no clue what they are buying let them buy this shit


i certainly wont be, not only because this this is an absolutely terrible remake of a classic, but because its creator has previously attempted and was caught red handed selling my software i have  gave away or free on ebay (which is why there have been no further versions of it  released to the public)

#3838314 Need someone to test and critique Jaguar Prototype cartridge PCBs

Posted by omf on Thu Aug 31, 2017 1:53 AM

if you want to make it the best compatability, on the eeprom save chip you need to connect the ORG pin to the +5V pin to set the save chip into 16 bit mode, this way 'new' revision eeproms will not need a bit or additional wire adding to make them work properly


93lc46C  are chips that do not work without said bit of wire.  once this is added they work fine

Thanks for pointing that out for me. I missed that too.

the lack of your reading ability you seem to have seems to add to your bug creation / non fixing issues, because you cant seem to read your code properly to to fix it, you even ignore information given to you by others so.


you really should fix that issue of yours!

Ah I see what you mean. I will try and adjust the code so it isn't turning off too soon.
