  1. No, a European falcon will only work with 220V AC. You will need to either replace the power supply with a US one (110V AC input) or use some kind of step up transformer. Replacing the power supply is pretty easy. Using a step up transformer is easier as long as you always remember to use it, otherwise your falcon will not be happy.
  2. You might want to try with another device. A 2.5 inch real hard drive would be the best. Just to confirm your ide interface works (or not). Then you can plan your next step...
  3. Ok, this is good info! And has this Falcon ever booted any hard drive/cf/sd card?
  4. Let's start from simple: Have you preped the CF drive? Does it have valid partitions and a hard driver installed?
  5. They are "hidden files" (I guess for indexing?) that windows put all over the place. You can use kobold to delete them but if you insert the sd card again on a windows computer you will get them again 🙂
  6. PM sent for Tournament Cyberball.
  7. Hmmm... never heard of that one... is there a thread I can have a look at please?
  8. I hope so too, but what does the Atari TT030 have to do with anything? I saw some references in @PeterG's post above but didn't make much sense...
  9. Sorry people, had a busy weekend... Thanks for all the posts, extremely interesting!!! The gameplay on the video that @phoboz shared looks very similar to mine but I would like to check my cart out again and verify that it is the same. Interestingly I think at some point I pressed "Option" and started going through the walls, and at some point I ended up at the end of level 1. And then the rocket took off bit this time for level 2, in contrary to the video above where the game ends at the end of level 1... Or maybe that "entrance to level 2" was hidden and I discovered it while the youtuber didn't? Unfortunately I am away from my Jaguar this week so I cannot confirm or not all the above. I will when I get back though. I think comparing the content of my ROMs and the one that the video uses will be interesting exercise because this will be the definitive way to say if it is the same or now. @phoboz do you have a link to that ROM shown on the video? I live near Portland, OR. If there is someone local I will be more than happy to meet them and make a dump. Unfortunately San Diego is a bit too far 😞
  10. Sure, but why solder it? Because they have the means to write it on the cartridge? Wouldn't be much easier to just use sockets and just remove, erase, write, sit, test (in a loop) the eprom?
  11. I do have a desoldering tool but it is not the best, and I really want to protect this cart and chips from damaging them since the count of pins is pretty high... I won't crack the champagne just yet. As @Mitch mentioned above this tape doesn't give much confidence this is a prototype, but who knows... maybe someone will get on this thread and shed some more light in the puzzle...
  12. I see... interesting... I found the atarimania page above, saw the title and the logo (the colorful target with the two bunnies and tough this the ROM I have in this cart... but apparently that is not the case... Unfortunately the ROMs on my cartridge are soldered, otherwise I would offer to make a dump... is there any device that can read the jaguar cart and dump it directly? Now am again curious about this cart... if anybody recognizes the game from my pictures please let us know...
