Atari Jaguar CD-Rom Case Modding

Recommended Posts

Hello,

i am a newbie in here and i ever was an Amiga fan but i got unknown years ago an Atari Jaguar and since this time i love this console.

 

The only thing i wanna know is, has anybody ever tried to build in an Atari Jaguar CD-Rom into an old Atari Jaguar case?

 

I'm a case modder and i love it to try impossible things. I modded different Amiga's and at the moment i have another A600/Raspberry Pi Project but that is not finished yet. Here a few photos of it.

You mean putting the CD-ROM into another Jag case? How would you plug it in? Or do you mean adding a CD-ROM into an existing Jag case that already contains a fully functional Jag?

Atari got this to work too and i think you only need to modify a few things. like the case and a few other things to switch between cd-rom and normal rom slot.

Why would you need to modify anything to switch between the cd-rom and cart slot? That happens automatically when the CD attachment is plugged in and it is only connected via an extension card. Otherwise there'd be little point in the cart slot (other than memory track) on the CD and you'd have to remove it each time you wanted to play a cart game.

 

Edit: I see what you mean now...

Ok. Thats a thing i didnt knew, because i never had a cd-rom :(

 

But that sound great. make things easier ;)

 

For now i only changed the power led. i am not a friend of green light. now it is blue. i think about to cut out the jaguar logo and fill this up with acrylic resin. after this i think i will put some red lights in there but this is only a think about for now. there was only one modding out there i could find with google. i wonder why not other people try to mod this great piece of game console.

Well the consoles are expensive, the CD attachments even rarer and more expensive. I can't imagine many people want to go cutting one or both of them up for what is largely a pointless act. Have fun if you're into that sort of thing.

Someone already did a case mod that managed to cram the jag cd down into the standard case.  It looked a lot like how a jag and jag cd looks, just not as tall.  Here's a pic

Wow, that looks like a horrible hack job with an even worse paint job.

That monstrosity on the right looks like it was made out of melted cheese and black shoe polish by an imbecile.

Looks more like a dark chocolate bar that's been left in a hot car on warm summer's day.

There was also this case mod which was a similar concept

I thought i read something about that this thing was the JAG2 that never got released. By the way the painting looks more then horrible!

And the "bump" to open the case.... . No Way. Looks like someone tried to push the case in with a hot air gun.

 

EDIT:

if you look carefully then you can see that the bottom tile of the case is much bigger then the normal one. either he build a new bottom case or this one is the JAG 2 Prototype.

Now compare these to the Jag Duo, prototype jag and jag cd in one. Pretty slick eh.

Since a prototype case exists in the wild, and a prototype motherboard pcb exists in the wild, there ought to be some kind of complex way we can marry the two and perhaps duplicate them :)
