Atari ST Games Ported to the Jaguar

Recommended Posts

Commando looks really fun. You know Halloween is right around the corner and a port of the Adams Family would be just awesome.

 

If there's one thing I know about CJ, it's that he loves requests. It's why I keep name dropping Elvira.

A brand new ElGato, and you're still using crummy composite? We need to get you an RGB cable :)

 

Yeah, there's no excuse for composite!

Send one over then :) I'll have to order the Elgato retro cable for that though!

1943 looks great! Hope to see that one on cart soon.

What is that a picture of in the ceiling tiles at 32 seconds in the heli video? lol Have never seen that game so no idea what the power ups look like.

Send me your address, and I'll build and send you a cable.

 

Do you have the Game Capture HD model? It appears not to support RGB at all, and component support seems to be limited to 480i and higher resolutions (so an RGB->Component transcoder won't work for the Jaguar). But you can still use S-video, which is a notch above in quality when compared to composite.

Thanks! But:

 

"Elgato HD can only recognize 240p signals over S-video or Composite."

Just played all the way through Bionic Commando with a cheat :) The ST version doesn't have sound effects, only music - so that WIP video just became final ;)

Is there a way to add sound effects? Doesn't matter, but just curious. It's always nice to hear gun shots and things blow up.

Maybe, I haven't looked into it yet.

 

A couple more really fun-looking ST games on our beloved Jag! Fantastic!!

 

This guy gets what its about!

 

With all the newly completed and incomplete wip's, will the first poast be updated?

 

Yes, but right now I'm uploading re-captures of the ports (at the speed of OzNet...) - once they are all up I'll edit the post!

Anytime more fun, quick to play games are added to the Jaguar, it's a good time. Nowadays, you gotta put an hour or two into a game just to get past the tutorial, I like bein' able to spend an hour on the Jag and feel like I had fun and got somewhere with the games I played.

Looking good, but it looks like it's running 15-20 fps...is their any tweaks you can do to get this consistent at 30fps or more?

 

It's already drawing the map and all sprites on the GPU. I suppose I could change the crystal divider on the motherboard..... :D

Have "Tom" draw the sprites and "Jerry" draw the map...have the 68000 do the rest of the work.

 

haha... ;)

Cyrano has single handedly brought new life to the jag community!

 

Pfft.

 

There's ZeroSquare and U-235 with their sound Engines. SCPCD helped with the screen convert code. Don't forget all the things from Sporadic and all the other rB+ guys, not to mention the huge effort put in by ggn to add BASIC to RAPTOR.

 

There are many other people keeping the Jaguar alive in 2016.

The Jaguar scene appears to have a lot of technical individuals with programming backgrounds.

 

Was this your profession before entering the scene, or did you just pick up knowledge of programming while tinkering around with the Jag?
