  1. Better take out a second mortgage then - customs charges are killing me in the UK Still on the bright side we will probably have no electricity by then either
  2. Just downloaded the demo and will give it a bash this evening. Q : Will this be available to purchase as a gamedrive file when released ? or will it be physical cart only ? Cheers
  3. One i'm afraid ( though i've owned 3 over time) and a game drive. The one I have has had to have a new cartridge port though as some of the connections inside slot ripped out with a cart 😪 That said I keep an eye out for a spare.
  4. Swear to god i posted this in the GD forum - admin(s) can you move it please ?
  5. One for CJ ( probably ) I assume the purpose of the CD add on was to allow for more data to be supplied on a cheaper medium but was it slower than accessing data via cart ? If so does that mean that with the advent of the gamedrive - game roms can be as big as one could wish with a better perfromance ( system limitations aside ) than cd E.G soundtracks can be cd quality ? Just curious really.

  7. I got quoted by a legend and hero of my youth. Just need to score a hundred at cricket now ( 96 is my best ) and then I can take it easy.
  8. + + + B R E A K I N G N E W S + + + Apparantly Jane Whittaker dictated the 10 commandments to Moses.... he was simmultaneously in London, California and Florida at that time but had to rush to Mount Sinai after getting a call from god asking if he could get it sorted. he will also probably claim involvement with inventing the covid vacine, the internet, nuclear fusion and creating the harry potter franchise - but only future interviews will confirm this. As a side note - it's really nice to see the Yakmeister posting here - one of my all time heroes.
  9. What i've found usefull is to 'mock up' the screen in paint and try various 'sprite' sizes by overlaying them. It's not ideal because paint doesn't have layers but it does work, I have tried doing this in inkscape but the results were unsatisfactory. Also a side benefit is you can also slice up the image into tiles to be used in your game if required. One final thing i will say is don't get bogged down creating fancy graphics at the start - decide on your sizes, make place holders ( i just use blocks of colour now) and get your game code sorted. You can make the graphics pretty later when you have something worthwhile. I know this, because it's what i did and it sucks the will to code anything out of you, but that could just be me
  10. Yeah 87.4 million units sold is a failure, coming in 7th in all time sales ( sandwiched between the Wii and the Switch ). I still have two as blu-ray players, media service clients and for a bit gaming (black ops 1 & two and battleield ). Atari would have loved that kind of failure. Back to the original question i'd say the jag didn't have a CD at release due to price and CD not being a console 'thing' when the jag was initialy designed.
  11. I watched that video and evrything looked flat, as in sprites, but perhaps i'm being unkind. I thought it was supposed to be some super complicated bit banging, 3d model generating speed monster ?
  12. Thanks saint, but i've registered on both and never heard anything back.
  13. Just as an aside Albert/Saint are the units manufactured in the UK ? If so, could UK users buy from AA but they could be shipped direct in the UK ? This way you get the revenue without all the customs hassle.
