Upcoming Jaguar Game Drive Cartridge

Recommended Posts

Albert confirmed I am #300 .... I feel like Leonidas .... at the bus station ... with a freakishly long queue in front of him.

 

Irony aside, I'm good, I'll get one when I'll get one, no sooner ;-)

Also arrived today in good old Germany by dragonbox. Seems like things are starting to move.

Thanks to Saint and all People involved into this project.

Works perfectly with first games tried.4876e13676a22bb9d943860a5c01dde8.jpg

Now I just need the Concerto and JagGD and I will be complete!

 

Also, I almost feel like the asthetic of the new VCS would match better with the rest of my stuff if they had a case that matche the two 'Super Systems'.

While I'm looking into some of the other 7800 flash solutions, to get me by until the 7800 GD, I do expect it to likely be the easiest to use and most supported going forward. Not knocking the others at all, but really like and know SainT's products and know what to expect. I don't have anything currently for it as far as a flash solution though (but recently recapped and S-video modded!).

First 7800 I got was smashed :(  after cleaning it all up, it works though so I was thinking of designing a new case for it and 3d printing it.  Maybe I should make it lokk like the woody.  That would be kind of cool.  I need to clone myself a couple times so one of my clones can work on it.

Nice! I was thinking it would be too lucky to get it in 24 hours from the UK store I bought from, but it was quick last time with the neo geo pocket one. No deliveries now until Tuesday next week but hopeful mine will be coming then or soon after. Still got some time before going back to work the following Tuesday!

I verify that on this UK website we can buy the Jaguar Gdrive. Have you bought now?

I have yes -- it actually arrived today! A Christmas miracle. :)

Awesome! I thought it was just too late for anyone to get them in time for Christmas. Glad to be wrong! 😄

Yes. Already digging through lots and lots of betas and homebrew which ROMs I hoarded all the years. Great to do easily now. Now longer flashing ROM per rom to the skunk or relying on shaky emulation.

Sadly many of these alpha/beta ROMs won't run on my GD. Anyone got the checkered flag 1993 CES demo running?

There are plenty of images out there with invalid headers, no headers, not actual ROM images, need to be run from RAM, etc...

 

it will take some digging with anything which doesn’t work straight away to figure out why.

Not really. Got a whole lot of ROMs, sorted into categories, too.

Have to test them all and verify they work which will take quite some time.

Would share with the community, but don't know if this allowed here on atariage.

Al, was the original "list" from emailing you directly added to the newer Google form list? I have a confirmation back in April from emailing you directly, but I'm not sure I ever filled out the Google form.

Yes, anyone who emailed me directly will be on the list before any submissions from the Google form.

Just want to say I've also received in the last hour (you bet I tried it right away!) 

 

Really looking forward to checking out some homebrew, I believe some people also sell the roms in replacement of full carts, so looking forward to that too.

Dammit, I totally missed that you had to choose an option to get the box and book. Was just excited and like yes! Checkout now!

Not sure if there's a way to amend that now...

I too checked out, without choosing the box and bigger instructions option. I emailed support about it, but haven't heard back from them. I'd sure would love to add this option to my order, if possible. I was too excited and thought I'd "run out of time". Any help on this would be greatly appreciated!
