Atari ST Games Ported to the Jaguar

Recommended Posts

Not sure why you posted those. But anyway - the Amiga audio did not align with the ST music calls, and, as far as I can remember, had tracks missing. So I didn't use it. Plus, I like the YM from this one :D

Not all dizzy games are bad. Bubble dizzy is really fun for example

Hmm i have not played that one before. I''ll give it a try.

As someone who just got a Jaguar, all of these look awesome. Is there any way to buy a set? Or download a set for Saint's eventual flash cart? I see a thread for ordering boxes and manuals so im assuming carts were sold at some point.

Do you take requests? :-D

 

Not sure if any of these would even be remotely possible, technically....but I absolutely love shoot'em ups and these come to mind:

 

 

Blood Money

Wizball
X-Out
Z-Out
Lethal Xcess: Wings of Death II
Wings of Death
Xenon 1
Menace
Dragon Breed
Armalyte
Star Ray
Awesome
Gemini Wing
Frenetic (would need better SFX)
Foundations Waste
Goldrunner
Outlands

 

Could one or two of these be an option, at least? Maybe?

I wouldn't hold your breath on any game from Psygnosis, if I were you. Dragon Breed has already been done.

Oh, shame...."Blood Money" was my most wanted. :-/

How come...what's wrong with Psygnosis games? Are they different somehow?

 

Great news about "Dragon Breed", I had no idea. :)

I would imagine it's more to do with Psygnosis still being around and litigious.

There was a thread awhile back where someone had said they were basically disbanded. They were what became Sony Computer Entertainment, after they sold off their plans of the playstation to them. At least as far as I recall.

So....you're saying there is some hope for "Blood Money" yet? :)

Would be a dream come true!

 

But also the other shmups in my list....would love to see each and every one of those as a physical cart release even, like some of the other games got.

Having some unique shoot 'em ups on the Jaguar is pretty cools, I probably wouldn't have gotten around to giving Xenon 2 a shot without it's Jaguar release. Speaking of Psygnosis, it's a bummer Agony was only on Amiga (because I don't own one) that is definitely a neat lookin' shoot 'em up.

Any chance of revisiting series 1 of the ST ports and fixing up R-TYPE? Adding in the sound effects and perhaps a smoother framerate? Just curious.

As for the sound effects, Yes! Gameplay is smooth enough. No framerate issues with that game. But let's not get off topic...

 

Original question still unanswered. This was one of the carts I purchased from the AA store back when along with JOUST and cyberwhatever. I returned it in exchange for Pacman Collection and Jr Pacman for the 7800 due to the subpar experience of the laggy ports. I only kept JOUST.

 

I like R-TYPE and am stoked to see it on the Jaguar and perhaps even one day running smoothly. I was just wondering with all the new ports coming would any revisions be made to the old ones. No harm intended here.

Nope. It's working as intended. With arcade music. At the same speed as the ST version.

 

I'd have thought you, of all people, would like sub-par experiences.

Thats a bummer :( I also didnt realize the ST version ran like that. (Never played it on ST)

What? You mean you didn't do any research? I am shocked.

R-Type on the ST is crap. R-Type Deluxe, on the other hand, would probably run much smoother on the Jag than it does on the STE.

I believe the chances of R-Type deluxe being finished is very small due to the death of the author a year ago. Due to the release of the source code though, as well as some people working on it, it's always possible.
