Looks good! Love these compilation cart or CD games to catch up on games I missed on previous release...

With the price of carts being so high to produce even with 3D printing these compilations are the way to go, imho.  When the NUON was on its last legs and they turned to homebrew it was necessary to come up with a good menu system and loader for all the different homebrews so you did not have to burn so many CDs to play a homebrew and could have compilations.  I love this compilation trend going on with Jag cartridges.

Awesome! So does somebody have the molds for the Jaguar cartridge? How are there so many different shells being made? Anybody using 3D printer? Just curious where all the shells are coming from.  
 

Also where are people getting all of the white box inserts that hold the cartridges? I understand this is a cartridge only release for this game.

Not clear just yet.  If not with the other new games, shouldn't be too much later after them.

Albert did buy a set of molds, IIRC.

Makes sense , there was a guy years ago selling the molds for the Jaguar cartridges and console (not sure what else without checking my emails) ,that were owned by the guys who purchased them for dental equipment. Wasn’t sure if maybe somebody or Albert bought those. Just was curious how everybody is sourcing the materials (carts , inserts , ect ) for these new Jaguar releases.

Do+The Same!!!!

Yes, a game that (imho) has never got the resepect or exposure it deserves. Hopefully more people will get to play it with this compilation.


Matmook knocked it right out of the park with this release, especially considering the date it was released.

Do The Same? Don't mind if I do!

I agree 100%. That game alone would justify the price of a cart.

I'm gonna have to fire up my copy of Jagware 1.0 and play it again! If I recall I had issues submitting my scores. Anywho...

Can we expect an european solution to obtain this ? Because with the COVID it's impossible to obtain this game from atariage without a big delay... >3 months...

Don't tell me you missed this thread Buddy:

I know it was all high drama at the time, but I read through pages and pages of this cracking up when I first found AtariAge, and somewhere buried in there is the ownership history of the Jaguar console & cartridge molds IIRC.

 

Still waiting for that purple and turquoise swirl translucent Jaguar case run.... With a unicorn imprint added on it.  And stickers.  And a pony.

It's a hell of a ride! Enjoy reading and be sure to watch the various videos that where posted and made about that "project" along the way by various people. There are some good after the fact follow up videos as well. The Mike Kennedy Coleco Chameleon debacle is so infamous it will never be forgotten, and not in a good way either. It's a fun ride with some good laughs though so enjoy ol' buddy! :cool:
