Possible Jaguar Overlays...For What Games?

Recommended Posts

Besides the Games that came with overlays, I was wanting to know what games you guys thought might benefit from having an overlay that didn't originally come with overlays. I have the ability to reproduce Jaguar overlays (minus the button embossing, so mine are flat) and I thought it would be a good idea to not only offer the originals (reproductions of course) but custom overlays for games the didn't come with them. 

 

The overlays are 100% plastic (no paper). They are made the same way I make Colecovision and Intellivision overlays if you are familiar with those. Here's a few pics of some reproductions I've made to give you an idea of how they look:

Let me know what games you guys think would benefit from overlays that didn't originally come with any.

Very nice and good to see they are made in plastic.  It would be nice to get a full set, particularly for games that only had an overlay design in the manual and didn't have a real overlay.

Make a complete set!

 

What would be in this complete set? I would assume all the overlays that did originally come out, but would there be more. Or what about the idea of an orphan overlay set?

I would suggest multiple options.

Complete set of official released games
Complete set of only games that did not come with one originally
Complete set of all home brew
Singles for all games

Something like that.

If kept reasonable, I'd be interested in some for the games that didn't come with them and a few that did, but I'm somehow missing. Iron Soldier comes to mind.

Skyhammer is one I'd like to see made with this kind of quality. Not into paper or card stock overlays. Maybe one for Battlesphere Gold and Another World too.

How different is Battlesphere Gold (keypad wise) from regular Battlesphere. Sorry I don't own the rarer titles for the Jag.

I think here's at least a couple of variants out there for BS, but same function keys for sure. Could just put a tiny image of that gold foil sticker somewhere and call it good. Or gold. :lol:

Gold foil (in any way) is a tough one for me to pull off. I'm able to do silver foil, but not gold. Sorry. 

 

On a side note I have (I believe) all the original released overlay art done:

Now I just need to figure out what other Jag titles can use an overlay.

I know that Syndicate and Robinson's Requiem make use of the keypad; there are a couple nice Syndicate overlay files somewhere on AtariAge.  Some games that didn't come with them had overlays printed in the back pages of the manuals too.

Please make a Battlesphere one. From what I've seen online gold or not it's the same controls. I think iron soldier 2 is the same as the first game just throw a 2 on the end of it! I think Zero 5 could probably benefit from one!

Any time frame on production and pricing on these yet?

 

I don't have any time frame yet. I still need to finish up an Atari 5200 overlay projecting I currently working on: INTEREST CHECK: New Reproduction Overlays...

 

Once that's done and out of the way I should be able to focus more on this project assuming the interest is good for Jag overlays.

It is very rare for me to ask this but I'm having trouble confirming what keypad buttons do what in Battlesphere. Mainly because I'm have trouble finding the manual online for it. Text or html is fine as long as I can see a description of the keypad functions. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

I was able to find this online. But don't know where I can get one. This is the battlesphere one I looked up and should help you with what button does what. Curious if you are able to make these? I also need the AVP overlays too as I only have the cart. Edited by UHATEIT

Be nice if a totally re-designed overlay would be made for BS. When I had the one above, was tough to make out while playing. Should have a lighter background, larger or lighter fonts at the very least.

Where did you get that by chance. I can't seem to find any for the BS game at all online. Was hoping to find someone I can order a set from and pick like 10 that I want and need

Was years ago, mid 2000's I believe before someone (I forget now) started producing them and might have even come from England IIRC. Extremely limited run sort of thing of course.

For BS you should have in mind that you can configure the controls. Don't know how exactly it changes the buttons from the top of my head but for example you can tell the game that you are playing with a regular pad or a pro controller. I think I make rolls on the shoulder buttons and increase or decrease speed on X and z which already are different functions from the overlay shown above...
