What's Your Pipe Dream Games On The Jag.

It still would be a great show piece for the Jaguar even if some of the animation could be scaled down... Think "Killer Instinct" on the SNES only with better animation. Something like that is possible for the Jag. As far as the human character is concerned, I think they were aiming for the "Bloody Roar" audience that was popular at the time this game was made. That's the only logic I can think of for them doing it in that way.

It actually predates that.

You're talking about KI for the SNES...? Yes it predates Primal Rage 2, however the graphics and animation can be downsized to something manageable for the Jaguar like the way KI's was downsized for the SNES only the Jag can handle animation much better than the SNES if "Primal Rage 2" graphics as well as the animation if done in similar manner (KI SNES) only with the same level of animation as the arcade version instead of the frame-drop version like the SNES.

 

It's like I'd mention in a previous post a few month back, the Jaguar isn't as good as the PlayStation 1, but it's better than an SNES or Sega Genesis and is possible to hit some sweet-spots that's not quite as good as a Sega Saturn, but much better than an SNES where arcade ports of some games are much more tangible on the Jag than what credit was given to the Jaguar in it's heyday. Or even an independent game with great graphics like "Native" for example and with the Skunkboard and the highly anticipated "SD Cartridge" still in the making, cartridge space shouldn't be a problem anymore. Although the SNES version of KI was limited to smaller sprites and the "Mode 7" effect, the Jag is much more capable than the SNES and can handle SNES style graphics with more animation and some 3D if you're lucky enough to make it all fit in and work smoothly.

Bloody roar was after primal rage two began development.

Sadly getting the full run down on Battlezone 2000 is turning into a pipe dream.

 

 

I've established contact with Rob Nicholson of Hand Made Software and asked if there is any truth to claims they were even planning to upgrade the Lynx version for the Jaguar,  no response has yet come back and i'm not optimistic it ever will.

 

 

I tried reaching Leviathan Media West people, after the documentation Scott Stilphen passed on showed them approaching Atari to see what the status of the Battlezone license was, as they were very keen to do an upgraded version for the Jaguar CD (this back in October 1995) , but no joy and no further documentation to show if Atari even replied to them at all.

Any playable game with a decent frame rate would be good on jaguar.  Especially a game that was actually fun.

Shame.  BZ2000 was my fave Lynx game.  It really shines with the new LCD screen.

Adventure 2000, with game design by Warren Robinette.

 

(Every Atari console should have an Adventure game by Warren Robinette.)

Whatever ones the source code is available for. 

Both mkt and umk. The n65 mkt and the psx 3do umk. I know n64 mkt is buildable. It's not the final build. I don't know about umk  versions Are you a programmer?

I would love to see Puyo Puyo Tsu on the Jaguar, Because no Puyo Puyo games were released on the Jaguar.

 

I also would love a Jaguar port of Xenophage: Alien Bloodsport to happen because it was never ported to consoles.
