Atari Jaguar fan site frozen in time since 2000

UG: How many bits is the Jaguar 2?
ST: It's a 64-bit system. Just much faster, more use of the 64-bit architecture, runs on a higher
quad speed. Has much more impressive 3-D stuff going on. Beyond Playstation, beyond Jaguar 
today, beyond Saturn today. Just a better system. Using Point-five Micron technology.

Sounds like Buck Swope describing the TK-421 upgrade that he personally installs in his stereo systems.  If you want that bass, you need the TK-421.  It kicks it up a couple quads per channel, but that's technical talk.

I ABSOLUTELY LOVE reading this thread - I'm happy to say that I'm the creator of Jaguar's Realm. This was the first website I ever made. So much nostalgia here! What a time capsule. Should I build a 21st century version of this site!? I think I will just because. I'm so happy you gusy stumbled on this. So many great memories.

 

About me. Not that any of you asked..

 

I still work on websites. I designed and am the editor of www.fiatleak.com for all you cryptocurrency lovers. It's a very popular site in the crypto community

 

I also produce a lot of music. My artist moniker is 'FANGS' www.fangsmusic.com - I've also scored and produced theme songs for TV such as the reality TV show Temptation Island.

 

I can never shake my obsession with the Atari Jaguar. Thrilled that the community is still going strong!

Dude! Super cool to see you're still alive and hopefully well, it's been too long! I'll never forget the magazine you had started on as a concept for the Jag, you still have any of those?

Welcome back JagCat64. Not sure if you've been out of the loop on the jag scene until recently, but there's tons of interesting stuff going on.  Original indie produced games, ports of games from the Atari ST library, replica 6 button pro controllers produced in the last two years, heck people are even trying to re-create the motherboard of the jag-duo based on specs that surfaced on that machine in the last few years.  This is definitely an enthusiastic community.

Yes, I've been doing some serious catch up and am so happy to see all the development. It's really something! From RetroHQ's Game Drive , to the homebrews and ST ports, the pro controller replica - it's all really fascinating. I'd really LOVE to see a new game that pushes the Jaguar to its absolute limits. A bucket list (possible pipe dream) of mine would be to raise and fund development of a game that realizes the Atari Jaguar's absolute potential. But this is for another topic/discussion.  None-the-less, it is great to be back!

I'm kinda partial to the original. Any way you could get it back up and running with a massive update after 20 years? :)

Sure - do you mean like keep the esthetics and overall feel of it just have the site more responsive to current resolutions and mobile devices? I'm so up for the challenge.

That list of unreleased titles is staggering.

You'll like this one Saturn, what is Doom GG?

Yes, exactly. The nostalgia factor is high and the look/feel you just don't see a lot of anymore. To me, it'd be priceless :)

I'd have made similar long ago as an homage to the Windows 98 era but wouldn't know where to start.

If my memory serves me right, songbird productions was working on a new version of the Doom port with music and some other additions. I wonder if anyone could reach out and get to the bottom of this! lol...

I'm slowly working my way through the site BTW. Loving it. I second the idea of a light-touch update. The content is great, but the retro look+feel make it legend!
