Upcoming Jaguar SD Cartridge

Recommended Posts

So, I know there's some drama over PayPal not allowing pre-orders that are more that 30 days out - is that basically the only thing holding back pre-orders right now?  Is the plan to use pre-orders to fund the actual manufacturing?  Just wondering why a 30 day lead time would not be sufficient.

No, I don't take any payment until the cart is ready to ship. I don't like the idea of taking money before I have the goods -- doesn't sit right with me! This is the whole issue, really, if I was more like a lot of other folks, I'd just take your money straight away and be done with it. No hassle! :)

 

I think what I'm going to do is, if when I come to take payment it's no longer valid, just cancel it and request payment again. I wanted to avoid having more rounds of emails and so on, as I don't find email very reliable with so many emails just getting spammed. But until PayPal sort themselves out, I think this is the best interim solution. A lot of the orders ARE valid for 1 year, so at least its not going to be all of them with a problem.

There is an adapter for Jaguar -> component(via HD Retrovision cables) made by Jody Hicks(Uncle Jody on twitter). 923357633255534593
I use one on my Jag.. its pixel perfect on a consumer grade CRT
 

I love component but i have SCART cables already that my TV accepts and my concern lies with newer models that don't have both of these analog ports. When i'll have to replace, an adapter will be the mandatory route.

Well, I’ll happily help you test that system out ;)

Hope we'll see some hacks in the future of some jaguar games with this SD carts.

Thanking of Turbo fire hacks for games like Raiden or Zero 5.

The ports locked to the Skunkboard are all now ready for the big day:

Just in case anyone was wondering how long it would take me to get around to these for this board.

It'd be cool to see if Sigil is possible on the Jag, really liked that wad.

Whaaaaat?  I had no idea Star Wars Arcade had been ported to the Jag.  As if I wasn't already excited enough for this thing.

Are these going to be free to download?  Or for purchase?  Thank you for the conversions.

Recommended ROM set for JagSD?

SD cards are so large (1T meanwhile) and there are so few 😞 Jaguar games, you can put all of them on one card.

Do you know if he's still making/selling these component adapters? I just learned about these from your post and reached out to him on eBay and Twitter. Hoping for a response. 🤞

JagSD only supports FAT / FAT32, so that limits you really to SDHC and 32GB. You may get away with SDXC cards formatted to FAT32, but I can't guarantee. Although that said, you'll get everything you'll ever want into 32GB and have plenty of space free... ;)

Technical question: Do you use ChanFS? Or did you write your own FATFS?

I'm getting annoyed because it seems almost every card I get now is formatted in exFAT.

Yes, I use Chan’s FATFS. Have used it in quite a few projects now. :)

Either buy SDHC cards (32GB or less), they should be FAT32 by default, or just reformat as FAT32.

Yeah, it throws me off since I try to use a USB stick with my Amiga.

I'll put them up for download, just like I did for the -Skunkboard locked ROMs.  I'd love to upload 100% unlocked roms for VJ, etc, but we all know a few individuals (and, yes, we all know who they are as well) will put them up on ebay.

The skunk and JagSD locked ROMs are more than generous, for those of us who just want to play and not profit there's zero difference.

Once it is all said and done I wouldn't mind to "donate", so if you have a landing page with a "donate" paypal I'd be using it, if not maybe we'll get it done via PM once it's time (I'm too much of a cheapskate to just do it now).

Thank you, but I'm really not interested in doing that. 

 

If people would like to support anyone for the ports, grab a game or two from Gaztee who has/is doing a great job getting physical copies made. 

 

Other than that, buy something in the AA store or get a subscription (I see you have!) to help Albert keep this place running.  

 

I didn't port these as a cash cow and I don't intend to start now. 😀

I remember when you helped me a couple years ago on a Raiden rom that wouldn't load so on the skunkboard and there was a special one you sent to me that had "skunk" in the title. It seems that now with these roms that might have been locked to a skunk they should work just fine on the SD cart without any issues am I right?
