Just got a Jag CD

Recommended Posts

Battlemorph is pretty awesome. Also most of the homebrews has be freely burnt to CD. I actually really like Vid Grid even though it doesn't have a whole lot of replay to offer (how many times can you watch the same few music videos).

Gorf classic if you can get your hand on it!

 

Seriously? I mean really, seriously? How can you recommend that to someone who 'just bought' a Jag CD?

 

Buy an actual Gorf arcade machine, or two for that matter. Cheaper. You can even hire someone to stand there and put quarters in it for you and still come out ahead.

Myst if you haven't played it. I also like Hover Strike UC (10 bonus missions over the cart version & cool but pointless FMV). Highlander is playable/finishable but not so great.

 

I also second Iron Soldier 2, BattleMorph, & VidGrid. I wish they would've made more VidGrids.

There is a pretty lengthy thread about Robinson's back from when it was released. Might want to track that down. Lots of good feedback and insight. I think the general consensus is that, yeah, it's worth picking up.

 

I will concur on Hoverstrike as well. With the CD version, it's actually playable now. :lol:

Battlemorph and Hoverstrike CD are the two best commercial release Jag CD games. Not many of the others were very good, although I had fun with Vid Grid. The best use of the Jag CD, though, is for playing homebrews, if you don't have a Skunkboard.

No, most of the homebrews will work fine without a bypass cart. You may only need one for some of the older ones that were sold a number of years back. However, you can use Jagtopia as a bypass as well.

Anyone played robinsons requiem? It looks interesting

Best game on the JagCD unit IMHO. Iron Soldier 2 is dope too. World Tour Racing looks decent, but it's one of the few games I don't have, and I don't have my hopes up about it. The CD library is a pretty big disappointment.

Suffering from Gorf envy? :roll: There's nothing wrong with suggesting the game. 8) Come to think of it you suffer from BS/BSG envy too! :roll:

There are more than 50 (almost 60) homebrews games to burn on CD-R.

For most of them you need to download Jiffi from the Reboot website and the free trial version of Discjuggler.

Most of the times the load and run adresses are 4000 and for most of the homebrews Jiffi will set them automatically.

In case it doesn't just enter manually 4000 for both adresses.

With Discjuggler, simply chose to burn image disc and that's it.

 

Some homebrews are to be burn from the dos prompt and some others are in nero .nrg format: there are trail versions of nero available from the net but beware they work for a limited period of time (30 days if I remember well)

 

Very few homebrews are not encripted and require a by-pass but as Sauron already answered, no need to buy a cartridge: just burn Jagtopia on CD-R: it replaces a by pass cartridge: just turn on your Jag with Jagtopia in your Jag CD and once it stops to spin, replace it by the unencripted CD, close the jag CD door and that's it.

Regarding the commercial games, like others I would recommand Iron Soldier II and Battlemorph but if the Jag CD doesn't have that much titles don't forget Myst (which is usually easy to find and cheap), Soulstar (unfinished but awesome game), World Tour racing (it allows 2 players to race on splitted screen) and the jigsaw game Vidgrid (based on videoclips from Red Hot Chili Peppers,Gun's N Roses, Van Halen, Metallica, Aerosmith, Ozzy Osbourne, Soundgarden…)

Commercial:

Battlemorph

Robinsons Requiem

Iron Soldier 2

World Tour Racing

 

Non Commercial:

Pretty much all homebrew which is free, especially Superfly, Downfall, Degz, Kobayashi Maru or Orions excellent collection.
