  1. Seems like a sega programmer and Carmack were both working together at sega HQ on the conversion.
  2. Is this original paper that was printed out at atari in the 90s (aka limited supply and everyone gets something completely different) or is it printed out by best electronics on demand (aka unlimited supply and people getting the same stuff)? (Serious question)
  3. Seems like a distributor, they were buying 48 copies each of 3 different commercial games. I could understand a developer buying some retail games to check out the competition, but I don't think they would buy 48 copies of a game, let alone 48 copies x 3 games.
  4. Unrelated question, is the Platypuss 33 from a diehard gamefan comic, a parody of the Jaguar?
  5. Wow, I thought the LSD thing was a joke, but I guess not! Your art is totally fine, in fact I was going to exclaim how cool it was that this magazine went through the both of making custom Cybermorph artwork and doing this extensive coverage of it. Nothing looks bad to me, I think you were just dealing with some guys who were bi-polar or extremely temperamental, rather than people having rational and logical critiques of your work.
  6. For anyone with a loose jag, it seems like you can buy a replica console box now https://retroboxes.uk/producto/atari-jaguar-console-box/
  7. Lying and manipulation are bad, but the sock thing sticks out because its so idiosyncratic. And trying to mainstream it by saying its an homage to when the person was a child and forced to wear girls socks just makes me think of this classic The Who song about a mother forcing her son to wear girls clothing.
  8. Regarding Doom 32x, I've seen this quote in a couple places suggesting that Carmack was physically at Sega of America's office personally working on porting Doom to the 32x. The 32x came out just before Christmas and there are prototype builds of Doom 32x on the net from September-October 1994, so I wouldn't be surprised if Carmack just had like 6-8 weeks to work on porting the game to very unusual hardware he wasn't used to, and the lack of refinement was just due to rushing it out before Christmas without spending the extra time to refine it more.
  9. I have Road Blasters in physical form - the game came in both plastic clamshell and cardboard box variants, I think one came with a color manual (or at least the cover was in color) and one came with a b+w manual. I have the b+w manual. I'm not equipped to scan things right now but maybe down the line I can help out if no one else has gotten to it by then. I used to have Puggsy, Kid Chameleon and Race Drivin too, but sold those games (and their manuals) on a couple of years ago...
  10. Race Drivin is a good improvement on Hard Drivin, you use a button for your accelerator instead of having to hold up on the d-pad. It also has three tracks, multiple cars, and I think you can even make your own (rudimentary) track if I'm remembering correctly. Frame rate is about the same as Hard Drivin though.
  11. That prototype cybermorph video reminds me of air cars.
  12. There's currently a jag with a dustflap for sale on ebay. https://www.ebay.com/itm/334098093584?_trkparms=aid%3D777008%26algo%3DPERSONAL.TOPIC%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20200708143445%26meid%3D953589b568ea40c98eb298d8ea68d4f6%26pid%3D101251%26rk%3D1%26rkt%3D1%26itm%3D334098093584%26pmt%3D0%26noa%3D1%26pg%3D2380057%26algv%3DPersonalizedTopicsV2WithMLR%26brand%3DAtari&_trksid=p2380057.c101251.m47269&_trkparms=pageci%3A89f8b277-f8b8-11eb-9651-72cac608e945|parentrq%3A28b7418d17b0a1b42752316fffe8fae2|iid%3A1
  13. I've played both versions. I think the saturn version has a better framerate, but overall, it looks and plays like the same game. I think I've heard people on this forum mention slight differences, like occasional issues with collision detection, but as a casual player you probably wouldn't notice.
  14. I saw some old communications between atari and sega on the sega games on Jaguar matter at one point. Basically atari was predictably asking for the latest and most popular sega stuff and sega was turning around and providing atari with a list of not that popular master system games they could choose from. Master system games on Jaguar definitely wouldn't have helped anything...
  15. Yes, some years ago you could buy an ODE made by a Russian guy, so it does exist, but even at the time, it seemed like it was very hard to actually buy and receive, probably b/c the guy was hand making them. I think this was the website: http://3do-mnemo.com/
  16. Sounds like a good return on investment for you, watch out for ebay and/or paypal to send you a tax document at the end of the year suggesting that all of this is taxable income.
  17. That really would have been the bleeding edge of tech for atari to do CD from the get go. If it came out in 1993, I think that would have made it one of the first game consoles to have CD as its media. I agree with the other comments, it would not have saved atari or the jaguar as a product, atari just didn't have the resources to support the system.
  18. I'm surprised by the number of people here who bought or received one in 1993! I would have figured there would be none on this message board. Geez that was about 28 years ago.
  19. Buying high value items from someone with 0 seller feedback/reviews is always a bad idea.
  20. I have two repro controllers and my plugs seem to have all the pins. Question for Surfnet, does the missing pin disable aspects of the controller, or does it all still function correctly?
  21. These days I have one, and I haven't turned it on in a few years (mostly play on emulation), and now I'm kind of scared to turn it on in case the zener diode has failed...
  22. For what its worth, I am very sure I played Pitfall on a Jaguar kiosk at the Kaybee toys in my local mall. In fact, it was the only place and time when I ever saw a jaguar kiosk in my entire life. The store didn't look like other game stores in the mall and my memory of the kiosk and where it was inside the Kaybee store is very vivid, there was literally a pyramid stack of boxed jag consoles next to it on the floor, which ordinarily I'd think would be behind the counter/in a store room or glass case or something if it was a high value item they were concerned about theft on. Kaybee was a very narrow, cramped and small store inside my mall and that made it seem like a total Jag party at that particular Kaybee with the amount of Jag stuff that was out on the floor and highly visible. And I didn't buy any of it! 😂
