  1. What I thought was great was the game update they provided. Apparently there was something like level 92 that would crash and they provided a file you could upload into the game and upload it. Also like how they had the JUGS (Jaguar Unmodified Game Server I believe it was) option on Battlesphere (adaptor included) that could load homebrew games. Mind you EXTREMELY slow compared to BJL, but it was my start into homebrew games. And later BJL became possible through game carts and adaptors just like Battlesphere showed could be done.
  2. That's hilarious, no I forgot about that. Anyone still in contact with any of the Scatologic team? All and all I think they made a fun game. Not one worth the hype, but there is NO GAME on the Jag worth that. But a fun quality game none the less.
  3. Good question. Something for Scatologic to answer.
  4. Tonight I saw this thread, looked at the contents, didn't see a manual, and decided to pull out my copy... Took pictures of the manual, and then read the reason it was not posted was due to it being copyrighted? Possibly post it under "Fair use"? As a long time fan of Star Raiders, I made these videos sometime back... Here is the second part (looks like it didn't get the contrast adjust a few years back when YouTube had that feature) Anyway, in short, unlike Star Raiders, you have an armada of your own you command, so technically not "Alone Against the Empires" as Star Raiders was, where you had Star Cruiser 7 and that was it. The game plays too quickly to have your fleet sit off to the side while you play hero and go at it truly alone. It's ok though, controlling the other ships is as easy as selecting them and giving them a destination sector. And you just keep at it, deploying the fleet, and jumping into the fight, until all the enemy ships are gone (or you are) To dock, just fly up to one of your star bases, wait for a second, a shuttle comes out to your ship and refuels you, and then you go on your merry way. All and all, a GREAT modernization of Star Raiders. A lot of the fun is kept with better graphics, and I like how they brought over some sound effects from the original Star Raiders game, and modernized but kept the alert jingle when your star base is being attacked.
  5. My Jag Bubsy plush appreciates the Jaguar shades!
  6. Looking forward to trying this when it becomes buyable/downloadable.
  7. That was a fun watch. Been using the dial-in setup for calling non-dial BBSs for a a few months now. Love seeing how it works.
  8. You're right, it is nothing new. There are three types of retro items sold... 1) Priced for nostalgia 2) Priced based on the market (completed ebay sales ect) 3) Priced to clear space. Personally I am alright with all of the three as they make things available for my own collection. Now how important to you is the item to pick it up with any of the three ways?
  9. I hear you on collecting Apple stuff. Maybe try collecting Atari next. (Says me, the mostly Mac and Newton guy...).
  10. I love that service (and I put in for Boot Factory and Dark Forces to be added.) Will give amis86 a try soon.
  11. I think for the Atari beige 400/800 line I did enjoy collecting the direct connect modem and coupler. Would like it if there was a way to hack them or replace the motherboard for a more capible modem speed. A lot of these modems are 300 baud, 1200 tops. That is torture these days.
  12. Crying shame. Hey John (Polka) , I see the Telnet is working fine: basementbbs.ddns.net port 9000 Will the dial-up be back in the near future? Now to see if I can reach the Backyard BBS sysop. I really liked that place to, but then Basement and Backyard BBS were the biggest reasons I got a land line to call BBSs.
  13. Just a few updates ... 905-895-5904 Backyard BBS - 2 in 11 tries got to the welcome but not the log in. So, basically normal. 503 245 5416 - Basement BBS is not answering.
  14. Hmmm... Bubsy meets American Hero. Fascinating.
  15. Every time I read this I keep expecting a Fritz the Cat game for the Jaguar.
  16. My wife ask for peace and quiet while she cooked dinner.


    So I took the batteries out of the smoke alarm.

      Bwahahahahaha! Best status update of the day doc. :thumbsup: :)

  17. Totally understandable. Thanks for letting us play with this in the beta stage. Got the two games I wanted to get working and played the hell out of them.
  18. Tried to get on the Playstation Communities the other day and they are now gone.
  19. Overall good service, like what he sells, got it to me quick. My copy of Venture played great. Just eventually covered the printed label with packaging tape for some lamination. cartridge labels could be higher quality for sure. The rest was fine.
  20. I had the Oregon Trail one, loved it, passed it on to a friend's kid who loves it more.
  21. Now that looks like some legit fun, then I realized who coded it and it made sense (Mr. Astrostorm)
  22. This only with Jaguar games for the Game Drive...
  23. Just wanted to say I got that feeling playing the Jaguar yesterday that I have not had since like 2000-2001. Soooo many Jag CD games I haven't fired up in a long time. I can see why it's been that long (cough cough... Hoverstrike) but a lot of fun to see them again. Also great to play regular games, like Battlemorph. Actually, I think Battlemorph and Gorf were the sole reason I kept a Jag CD around.
