  1. Aegis Defenders is free for two more days on Humble Bundle.
  2. It is not the regular Thimbleweed Park game but the spin-off Delores: A Thimbleweed Park mini-adventure that is free. Robert
  3. Are you sure? I can not find "Manual Samuel" on GOG at all?
  4. Manual Samuel free for two days on Humble Bundle: https://www.humblebundle.com/store/manualsamuel-free-game
  5. Regions of Ruin currently free to keep on steam.
  6. The Killer bundle is back but unfortunately it is missing the "SNK 40th Anniversary Collection" and "The King of Fighters XIV" that was in the "sold out" version of the bundle. But the "Atari Vault" is still there so now is the chance to get legal copies of the 100 Atari Arcade and 2600 games you already have on your hard-drive 😁 https://www.fanatical.com/en/bundle/killer-bundle-12 Robert
  7. Totally off-topic, this is what happens when an opea singer covers Disturbed's metal cover of Simon and Garfunkel's "Sound of Silence":
  8. Not games and not strickly Atari but probably still interesting for a lot of us, some Fusion Retro Books PDFs are currently free (Ocean, US Gold and Olivier Twin History, Amiga, C64, ZX-Spectum in Pixels): https://fusionretrobooks.com/collections/pdf Robert
  9. The only Atari 7800 game on steam "Rikki & Vikki" is now with 90% discount only €0.81: https://store.steampowered.com/app/893690/Rikki__Vikki/
  10. Yeah, my copy is currently waiting at the post office waiting to be picked up after handling over €24.33 (around $26.77) import taxes and administration fees. Together with the $24.99 shipping, the shipping+taxes is almost as much as the price of the game itself. But I'm sure it will be totally worth the price 🙂 As compensation for the import taxes I took advantage of the 90% discount to buy the steam version too 😁 With the current price (till 3 December) of the steam version there is no reason to not buy it. Robert
  11. Why not? ExoDOS provides a torrent and comes with preconfigured DosBox/ScummVM for easy playing. But I'm sure you can extract the files to run it on a real DOS computer. Now I only need to find about 500GB of free disc space to download it 😋 Robert
  12. Does renaming it to "Game Drive" mean running demos like Bad Apple is no longer supported? 😁😋
  13. I only back if it is available as Jaguar CD Cinepak disc 😁
  14. You already gave the answer, bank-switching is the key which enables nearly unlimited space. According the the documentation, the first 4MB ($000000 - $3FFFFF) is RAM bank one (only 2MB used on the Jaguar), the second 4MB ($400000 - $7FFFFF) is RAM bank two (not used on the Jaguar), then there is 6MB ($800000 - $DFFFFF) reserved for cartridge rom. The last 2MB ($E00000 - $FFFFFF) is reserved for boot ROM (128KB used in the Jaguar) but an 128KB windows in that area ($F00000 - $F20000) is for the TOM & Jerry registers and local RAM. So in the 6MB cartridge space you could think of several different bank-switching layouts like 4 banks of 4MB or a single fixed bank of 4MB and the second 2MB spaced bank-switched with 6 banks of 2MB (12MB). I do not know what bank-switch layout Saint used but as the CPLD used is reprogrammable, you could create every bank-switch layout you can think of. Also the cartridge port seems to expose 24 address lines, so in theory you could even use addresses that are normally reserved for RAM or unused IO space or unused boot ROM space. But this might interfere with the RAM interface if that still returns (random or mirrored) data even when there is no RAM. Robert
  15. @Albert, does the forum software have the option for a "sticky" post that is displayed on every page of a thread? Then the sticky post can contain a short piece of text containing or pointing to answers to common questing like above so there is no need to post the same question again and again. @kublai, if you signed up for the e-mail list on Saint's website you auto-magically get that information as soon as it is known.
