  1. Thanks for all the answers! I'm not in any way trying to rush you. Even if you had no job and no obligations to take care of, going through all of these files somewhat thoroughly would take an eternity, and a helluva lot of organization. I guess I have just two more questions: 1) If I hold off on ordering, say, the Guardians: Storm over Doria prototype for now, and wait until everything has been released in a year or however long it takes...will Guardians still be available then? Or are you just printing like 25 copies, and when they're gone, they're gone? 2) Do you think you might offer a discount for a bigger purchase, maybe of ten or twenty carts? Thanks!
  2. MacRorie, how many of these do you plan to put out on cartridge? If each one turns out to be a prototype, will each one get a cart release? And if I choose to wait to make a purchase until the last of these files are available on cart, will these earlier ones still be available to buy then? Or are you only putting out limited numbers? I'm trying to decide which ones to buy, but I clearly won't have the cash available to buy every single one. Like the first group of photos, do you plan to release these roms to the community after a year? Sorry for all the questions, but my subtotal is already getting pricey and I'm trying to be smart about this...not easy for me when it comes to buying games.
  3. Welcome to the Jaguar community! Your experience makes sense - there's a lot of bashing by those who have only read about the Jaguar and never played one. But those of us who have played it know it's got some pretty solid content and gets an unfairly bad rap. Granted, there is plenty of bad-to-mediocre stuff on the Jag too.
  4. Cool review! It's always good to see the Lynx get some screen time, and this is positive screen time no less. But did anybody else notice that the Evercade "thumbnail" screenshot for Slime World uses a screenshot of the Genesis port? Dunno how they didn't catch that, as the Genesis has something like four times the resolution of the Lynx.
  5. Here are some more, for anybody curious. There is a fifth one, but the screen scrolls up and down to display the full image, so I can't show the whole thing in a still photo. MTR, can you say where you found the Megan Fox file? I really hate to not have the creator of these acknowledged, but I can't seem to find anything here.
  6. This one. I would love to credit whichever technical wizard did this, but I don't know who it is. There are a few more "hi-res" Lynx image programs too. I'm sure I got all the files from somewhere on AtariAge.
  7. The Lynx has been shown in recent years to be capable of far more than 16 colors onscreen at a time. Dunno if you've seen that tech demo with the Megan Fox photo on the Lynx, but it's gorgeous...and not just because it's Megan Fox. I know it's not fair to compare work done on the Lynx 30 years after its life to work done on the Game Gear in its heyday, but has the Game Gear ever been shown to do more than 32 colors onscreen?
  8. Great news! These will both be Day 1 purchases for me. Is there any difference between this version of Quadromania and the one sold by Luchsoft? I haven't gotten around to picking up that one yet.
  9. Wow, this is really looking beautiful. I love the pixel art, especially in the jungle-themed areas. Day 1 purchase, of course.
  10. Really cool stuff! I too had heard way back (not from any official source) that Ninja Nerd eventually became Fat Bobby. But from this, they look totally different. The only similarity I see is that the appearance of one of the alternate characters looks similar to Bobby. For the creators to scrap the progress they had in Ninja Nerd to work on Fat Bobby instead, it would be like starting over mostly from scratch and making a new game. It's a little weird that Geoduel uses the sound effects of Warbirds. Of course the game is far from complete there, so they might have just been placeholders. Most importantly, if you pause at the bottom edge of Guardians's map screen and turn the Lynx sideways, the mountains become boobs. Best Lynx game ever! Really cool stuff!

Just like the Death screen border in Spacewar being ripped straight out of Warbirds. By far the most important thing I noticed: if you pause at the bottom edge of Guardians's map screen (timestamp 11:20) and turn the Lynx sideways, the mountains become boobs. Best Lynx game ever!
  11. Wasn't Battle Sphere a homebrew? Clearly I must be mistaken here, as it surely would've been mentioned by now. I thought it was made by just a handful of fans, as impressive as it is.
  12. I ordered this as soon as I saw the email a few days ago. I still haven't given the original Cybervirus the time it deserves, but I'm looking forward to investing more time into both games!
  13. I don't know of anything like that. Personally I would love the ability to buy roms for games like Championship Rally and Zaku so that I can play them on my LynxSD.
  14. Incredible! I'm curious whether the "Slime" file is a prototype of Slime World? I also wonder whether any of the previously unreleased content could be finished and released, like Mr. Forhan has so kindly done with other games. Lots of great news here.
  15. I love shmups, and the arcade version of Raiden is one of my favorite games ever. I actually kinda hate the Lynx port because it's scaled down so much from the original, and it doesn't have music. I've also barely put any time into Zarlor Mercenary. I know it has a number of fans, and I'd like to play more of it. The little that I've played didn't Wow me though. It seemed like a lot of enemies were just thrown at me with little deliberate level design...just like Trevor McFur, which I really really despise. I guess all I can say is that I don't care much for either game. I do like Zaku somewhat. Gates of Zendocon is alright, but it plays really slowly for a shmup. I haven't found a shmup on the Lynx that I really loved, unless you consider Robotron 2084 a shmup.
