  1. With those symptoms, it no longer sounds like a connector issue. I had a Jaguar that exhibited similar strange symptoms (it randomly crashed on startup, the audio would randomly become distorted) and spent a lot of time trying to diagnose and replace things, but to no avail. Sorry I can't help more.
  2. The slot is definitely more finicky than other cartridge-based consoles, but in your case it sounds excessive. Try cleaning the contacts like Gummy Bear said. If it doesn't fix the problem, it's possible that the cartridge connector is worn. It can be replaced, but this is neither easy nor cheap.
  3. Some solder flux residue that wasn't cleaned, perhaps?
  4. But does it run full speed? Given enough logic gates, you can run pretty much anything, but not necessarily real-time.
  5. It's possible to emulate it on a FPGA, but the price of the FPGA you need for that makes it unattractive. SainT: if you're referring to Torlus' project, IIRC some tweaking was needed, because the original netlists used logic tricks that are not safe on FPGAs. And IIRC it didn't run full speed on common FPGA platforms.
  6. I'd say one of the components (probably U1, U2 or U3) in this part of the schematic is defective:
  7. They are still listed on Best Electronics's webpage: http://www.best-electronics-ca.com/jaguar.htm This topic may help you:
  8. Come on. This is the Jaguar we're talking about. "It's broken" has never stopped anyone from releasing stuff.
  9. It's not an emulator, but basically it's been done by Matthias Domin nearly 20 years ago: http://mdgames.de/tosonjag.htm
  10. Just wanted to say thanks for the huge amount of work this migration must have been
  11. Is liking the Jaguar now recognized as a medical condition?
  12. As said above, Tempest 2000 and Defender 2000 have great music, and it's well-suited to drums. Rayman has nice music too, but maybe not as drum-friendly: There's also the theme song from Cannon Fodder:

  14. It's a question you should ask SainT. But don't be surprised if he's reluctant to open that can of worms.
