  1. 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.
  2. There was an update to run the Jag CD games available this morning.
  3. Yeh worked great after that. Only changed the .cue file name. Dragged all the other files into the same folder as cd2jcd.exe also. (did not change those names)
  4. Let me start by saying thanks for this, awesome work, love it. I shared the above as someone who is trying this for the first time. I had no idea how a .cue file archive works, especially with the cd2jcd. I'm sure there are others who were just as lost as I was, and I shared what I did for their benefit. You've had a long day. Go enjoy a good meal, relax, enjoy.
  5. So I got the .cdi to work, how does the multiple files with a CUE archive work in this case? I imagine the cue file is what directs cd2jcd which file to pull next, can't seem to get the magical incant on this one. (Then I looked at this, realized that the command line app does not like spaces. Changed the cue file from "battle morph (USA).cue" to "battlemorph.cue" and it worked fine.)
  6. Be curious to know. I haven't had any luck with .iso files so far. That worked. Found a way to write it to flash card (took a moment figuring that out using wine) Dragon's Lair works now.
  7. On this one Dragon's Lair was not contiguous and errors in World Tour Racing.
  8. Strangely out of all of those I can't wait to play VidGrid again. Ok, all I need now, as a Mac user, is a .iso to .cdi converter for imagess created by Mac users.
  9. Up updated the firmware. Now it selects .jcd files. First one was not contiguous. The second file made from the Jagtopia.cdi file (as that is the only other .cdi I could readily find) came up as I believe it would. So cool. Now to find more .cdi files to convert.
  10. Was able to get it to compile an image from a .cdi using wine on the Mac. Was not able to get the image to load however (hitting B button on image in Game Drive menu was unresponsive). Game Drive said I had the latest firmware from the link it gave me. But all this to say I did get the cd2jcd program to generate... something!
  11. I would be up for a Mac version as well. But then I might give this a whirl on a Mac I have with Wine support see how that goes. This is a lot of fun though, see what I can do to test this and help make it better. Mp3 support was mentioned at one time, or to play that through VLM, with a 16-32 gb card I'm looking forward to that too! (when that happens).
  12. Recently had fun with demo movie files, like the Jaguar commercials. So where can I find the tools to create the movie files? Any recommendations?
  13. A little something I shared here: Now we can import other score files, play against other high scores, and submit our scores back.
  14. My take away from this was that you found some of the Telltale stories amazing. Nice!
  15. Ok, where do I start on Sam & Max, except that they are zanny fun and I love them! I first saw them in Sierra Online catalogs... no? I feel like they started somewhere in some video game magazine/catalog with like several panel stories. Then I really got into the Sam & Max Franchise with their animated series, which is one of those series I love to rewatch every now and then. Then I lost track of them for years. Then Telltale made a ongoing Sam & Max series. And it was then I found out about the comics (not as many as you'd think, but great), the early PC games, and the games that came out later for the Wii and Playstation consoles and what not. At the very end of Sam & Max hit the road have a shooting gallery where you can shoot various things, two of which look like R2D2 and a very hyped character and my favorite, Bubsy Bobcat. A lot of the Bubsy fans got a kick out of that, and I think it is cool that Bubsy is oddly in their bizarre universe. You have tipped your toe in the fountain of greatness.
  16. Yeh that is a fun game. The power ups are monsterous. 😮
  17. This brightened up my otherwise bleak day. Thank you!
  18. I'd say for 3D games the Cybermorph/Battlemorph, Battlesphere, the Iron Soldier games, and Zero 5 did a great job. Was Gorf 2000 ever released? And I'll throw in 3D Stooges' game "Surrounded" as a "Okay" 3D game. Fun to play (I think) just simple 3D game.
  19. They are good. I was surprised that we've been able to unearth as much of Dal-ACE as we have. I've seen some MACE issues out there. Maybe we should start looking for those too. Some are in the internet archive: https://archive.org/details/mace-newsletter-v-2n-4-apr-1982 https://archive.org/details/MACE_Journal I'll keep a look out for them.
  20. (Submitted by Doctor Clu) So this was originally written in the "Why the hell did I not buy this?!" thread here on AtariAge. "a thread for items that you thought you would never need/want but looking back, you think you should have gotten it. " Got many collections but Bubsy Bobcat is one of the few that I've tried to hunt down everything possible for and try to buy it. Must admit, I like Bubsy collecting because I can afford the occasional thing that pops up every now and then. He's a delightful character, the game development for all the releases are a fun triumph in their own ways. The other Bubsy fans I've met along the way are all generally likeable too. So for this thread I mentioned the Bubsy collection. And for that I remarked: I work to not live with too much regret. I've done pretty well as a Bubsy Bobcat and Zool: Alien Ninja from the nth Dimension collector. Both of those collections I have some rare items I'm proud of... That said, as a Bubsy Bobcat collector, there are some things that got away, but I am happy to know they exist. Most of the time it was just timing and funds. Or someone just wanted it more, and well, kudos to them! 2011-ish Two very rare items came up at once. The Bubsy sunglasses as a Babbages promotional item... And an invite to the promotional party at a CES for the launch of Bubsy... I decided to let the flip-flop go, and went all in for the sunglasses, giving a $100 ceiling for the auction. And lost! Till then I never paid any great amount for Bubsy merchandise, but was shocked when someone wanted those sunglasses that much. 😮 Other Bubsy fans existed, possibly more fanatical than me? Shock!! in 2020 the Bubsy plush I showed at the beginning showed on ebay for the first time in a decade, and I learned from the above story. I took all steps necessary to make sure to secure that plush, being up against not only Bubsy collectors but PLUSH collectors who had already deemed it a holy grail. They could have it.. for the cost of a used car! So gained wisdom from the lost flip flip and sunglasses. 2013? Development hand drawn maps were put on ebay from Bubsy: Fractured Furry Tales game producer Faran Thomason. Reason for not buying them? That I had ripped the actual maps from the game rom. But would have been a nice piece from the development of the game looking back. There are such few merchandise and collectables for the Jaguar Bubsy game. Just glad we have these shots of the maps though. Kinda nice. 2021 Had just made a large purchase two weeks ago and as a collector when I use credit for large purchases I work to pay that off before another large purchase. And so naturally, days later, my first sighting of Toys R' Us VidPro cards for the Jaguar appeared. A lot of 22 of them. $499 to buy it now, and with a $199 starting bid. Also naturally, a Bubsy Vid Pro card was in there. The first sighting I'd seen of this card... ever. I have other Bubsy vidPro cards, but little known fact... Bubsy: Fractured Furry Tales is my favorite Bubsy game. So would have been nice to pick that up, but not for $499. There were other cards that would have made the $199 worth it. Probably would have resold about 19 of them. Held off till the last minute, and in this instance, was out-sniped. Oh well, it would be boring to have a complete collection, right? Gotta be something out there worth hunting down. As they said in Pirates of Dark Water "Always the Quest!"

  22. Selling roms coded to individuals have worked well in the Intellivision community for quite a while. Honestly don't mind the $5 - $25 price tag for a rom for the Game Drive over the $50 - $80 price tag for the cost making a cartridge.
  23. Just for the record, the lot of 22 cards went for $202.49 in the end. Again, to whoever bought them, make me an offer on Bubsy, possibly Zool.
  24. I would be up for a rom only purchase for the game drive.
