The first thirteen Jaguar CD games I tried all booted up perfectly on the first try, and I played around a half hour of each without any problems.  Most seem to run better than the originals due to shortened loading times, most noticeable on Myst and Baldies for me.  Blue Lightning froze for a few seconds on the map/level select screen, but that was it.  For something in Beta stage, this is fantastic.  I did have the advantage of waiting 20 hours or so before starting the firmware update and ISO conversion process, giving me the benefit of several pages of comments here to help me.

 

The new firmware seems to have messed with my Rayman save files though.  Now when I get to the file select screen, I see "Error" in red text in place of each file.  No biggie, just mentioning it here in case it's an unknown issue.

Did you ever find a solution to the Rayman save file error? I've had the same issue with my Jaguar Multicart for years. I have 4 games on my Multicart ( Towers II, Zero 5, Atari Karts, Rayman) and Rayman is the only game of the 4 that gives me issues when attempting to save. I ordered a Jaguar GameDrive so that will be replacing my Multicart, but if I sell or trade away the Multicart, I'd like to fix this issue. There was some code I read about that is supposed to format the Rayman game's save files but I can't seem to find it. Perhaps it will solve the error problem.

Edit: I think I found the code - "hold down * and # and either the pause or option button, all at the same time until you get the "cartridge memory cleared" notice on screen".

I'll try it when I get the chance.

Rayman is the only retail cart that I’ve ever had to do repairs on. I’ve had to replace no less than 3 save chip eeproms on 3 different retail Rayman carts for save problems. Very strange.

I haven't found a way to fix it, but I haven't tried.  I've been tied up with other projects.  I thought about just deleting the save files from the SD cart and starting over.  Rayman wasn't the only game effected - I believe Syndicate had the same issue.  Those were probably the only two games I had made save files on before adding Jaguar CD games and messing up the save files.
