After a good wait I finally got my Game Drive the other day and am mostly happy with it. I do have some observations about it's setup and usability which I'll be bringing up in my live video review of the device this Thursday, for anyone who wants to check that out. For now though I'm persevering with putting together a rom selection I'm happy with and have found compatibility so far to be hit or miss. Here's what I've found: Original commercial releases all work fine, in .jag format, if obtained from a good source. Reboot roms all work fine with the .rom extension, with the exception of 1. Other homebrew/indie games are hit or miss, whatever the extension. ST ports are also hit or miss. Pretty sure none of the skunkboard-modded roms work which I kind of expected. Several betas/protos/demos from the goodset don't work. Besides the commercial stuff, most of the roms I'm using were downloaded from threads here on Atariage, mostly from one master thread by Cyrano. From my 'master list', (a combination of commercial, homebrew and ports), here are my current non-workers and the fault I'm getting on my PAL Jaguar. RS = red screen after first jag logo screen, BS = black screenafter first jag logo screen, UFF = unknown file format that wont boot on either mode offered: 1943 - RS Aircars - RS Arkanoid ROD - BS Asteroids - BS Badlands - RS Bionic Commando - RS Brutal Sports Football - UFF Dragon Breed - RS Escape FTPOTRM - RM Flying Shark - RS Gorf 2000 - UFF JagMarble - UFF Midnight Resistance - RS Phase Zero - UFF Project One - BS Rampage - BS Rick Dangerous 2 - BS Solomon's Key - BS Star Wars Arcade - BS Stunt Car Racer - BS Teenage Mutant Hero Turtles - BS If anyone has links to working versions of these roms or any ports or homebrew known to work then I'd love it if you could share them. My only other question is on rom naming. Some roms read the naming I've manually given them on my PC for naming consistency, but many don't and I'm not sure where the Game Drive is reading them from. Made a couple of .mrq files for some games adding my naming for consistency and it's not reading it from there it seems. rom extensions also seem to show for some roms and not others? Could options not be added to change this to user preference? Auto name reading is always problematic in my eyes, editing file names is so simple on a PC after all.
