So you can play my games on your soon to come Jaguar Game Drive Cartridge, or your skunkboard, or any other Jaguar flash cart.

Possibly I'll do the same, though I have been wanting to get the DreamCast versions on disc as of late.  I haven't gotten any homebrews for the DC as of yet.  Getting for either the DC or the Game Drive is MIGHTY tempting.

Am I reading this right. When I click on the links, is it saying these games also play on Windows XP/7? If so, do they not work on Windows 10?

Good news! Thank you Orion.

Especially excited about "Escape 2042". I just need to get my skunkboard working, then I shall purchase (or wait for a JagGD).

XP, 7 or higher, I just don't have Win10 at my home, but I tried on another computer with Windows 10 and it works, there is generally no backward compatibility problems on Windows (but MacOS is a different story)

Stupid question, but I bought all of your ROMs/is off your site and have the original discs sealed. But will the skunkboard ROMs I bought also work on the Jag GD when I can get my hands on one?

a rom is a rom, it will work on any flashcart.

except if the flashcart included specific exclusion of specific games, but I doubt it's the case for my games since I wasn't approached about this.

I'm pretty sure the GD hasn't been made to exclude any games. If anything, you might want to look into some way to make the ROMs of your games playable only from a Skunkboard or the GD if you don't want them to start appearing on carts in Etsy shops or on eBay.

I have tried Alice's Mom's rescue on the JagGD and it works but I can't get Escape 2042 to run on the JagGD. I have a .J64 file. I thought they included load and start address but the JagGD ask to load and run at $4000 or load as a header less rom at $802000. Neither of the two options work!

P.S. I can't get my skunkboard to recognise with windows 7 or windows 10 anymore so have no way of playing this game after I have bought it.

No, there's no reason it shouldn't work, unless its setup "non-standard" using a 16bit ROM header and different start address, this may cause the menu to mis-identify the ROM and cause it to fail.

 

If someone (if you're happy with this, @Orion_) would like to send me the ROMs over, I'll take a look.

Thanks Orion, this is great news.

 

I've bought physical copies of most of your games over the years but no doubt I'll buy the ROMS for the GD no I have it.

 

I'm currently enjoying Alice's Mum's Rescue on the GD using the ROM that came on the Jag CD release.

Today I buy Alice and Escape from Orion, but both files has a red screen, any ideas ? I have the newest firmware on my GD Card 

 

Edit: found the solution, the card was not correct in the Jaguar !

I own all of Orion's game in their physical formats. Cart, CD and now digital download so I can play them on the Atari Jaguar GD. Even if you aleady own them it's always good to actually own a paid for .rom version.

Orion I will buy them all in ROM format again once I can get my hands on the GD cart!

I bought Elansar and Philia off the itch.io website a while back. I'm still stuck on Philia. Can't get past the opening room. Took me a while to find an old windows pc in order to burn the ROMs for my Jaguar CD but I got there. Anyway, I ended up buying a cart version of escape 2042 this summer. It was very fun. Look forward to playing these on Jag GD someday.

Thanks Orion. I bought Philia and Elansar and did the painful task of burning to a CD for the Jag CD. Escape 2042, I bought a cart copy. Not sure how I'll play Alice's Mom's Rescue. Maybe if my GD ever comes in the mail...

Just realized I already posted about this months earlier...

If I buy any of these, they would not be looked to for example the Game Driver?

Because I prefer to make myself a personal cartridge rather then to purchase a super expensive add-on...
