MRQ files

Recommended Posts

To get the ball rolling with the Marquee files here are some I've made for the original 50 games as mentioned

in the Atari Jaguar Wikipedia pages. There are Alternate mrq files for Aircars and Power Drive Rally. One showing the

original Aircars in a white inner and the (alt) in an aftermarket box. Power Drive Rally has both the European and American

box designs, one of them is the (alt) mrq file.

 

To use the mrq files copy them to the SD card either in the same folder or root directory as the roms. Make sure the rom

files have the same name as the .mrq file or it won't pick them up.

 

for instance

 

Aircars.jag

Aircars.mrq

 

There is also .mrq files for Cybermorph (1mb) and (2mb) versions.

 

Edit (SainT)
The MRQ tool (with brief usage instructions included) is now available as well.

Out of interest, is there a template/guide for creating these?

 

The tool is now linked in the first post of this thread.

Would it be possible to add a feature to MRQ tool so that you could edit an existing mrq file's parameters or overwrite them? I would like to use mrq files pack provided in this thread but would like to change the game title slightly. As I don't have original boxart and screenshots I can't create them from scratch either.

Yes, I could do with writing a simple graphical tool for things like this to view, edit and create new ones. On my todo list...

Although CD support hasn't been announced or confirmed I've made some marquee files

for the 13 original Atari Jaguar CD retail games. A bit of artistic license has been taken with

the pack-in game Vid Grid. I used graphics from the cover project as the original game came

in a small CD case and not a box. Fingers crossed for CD support.

At the moment CD's are not supported.

During testing a special proprietary disc format was used and the tools to make it are unavailable for now.

Probably a good idea to test them before these spread around the interenet with some bad ones, which then has homebrew authors explaining repeatedly why some stuff that DOES work doesn't.

Well i'm just waiting for my JagGD.

But i like your way : in the previous message you ask me to do them by myself, and now not to do.

Thanks for all

There's a massive difference between "do them yourself" and then "spread them around without even testing" - especially given the admission you don't even have a JagGD yet!

I am terribly sorry for the accusations. The evidence is merely circumstantial and I reacted a bit harsh.
