Holy crap! Ok, I now know why some of the JagSD carts I've posted out didn't get tracking information and have been delayed! It looks like this one was dropped in a puddle and run-over... 😲

Atari Party East is this Saturday. I need to better organize the files on the Jaguar SD cart and soon. I will also be bringing my McWill screen modded Lynx and the Lynx SD card from @TheRetroHQ.

More Jaguar video-out loveliness. And as an added bonus, they look like squares of chocolate! Well, to my eyes anyway... 😄
Almost ready! This last batch of GEN2Jag and Snes2Jag took waaaay to long to make. Just some clean up and final testing and they should be good to go! #RetroGaming #gamers #Atari

The very first RetroHQ product. An Enterprise 64 RAM expansion. It all started here, folks! 😆

Lol, $28 for a couple of bits of wire is ok but $200 for an extremely complex piece of electronic equipment with years of development... too expensive. Sigh. 🙄 Better get spending $80 a game instead then.

Doom? With music? But surely they said that was impossible!? This is the sort of interesting thing you can have running on your Jaguar using the Jaguar SD. 😄 @nostalnerd

First video evidence of Jag SD’s in the wild! Bonus points for spotting the stylish new Retro HQ pin badge... 😆
Here's my review of @TheRetroHQ's JagSD ROM cart!:

SainT : RetroHQ :

August 30th 2019, 21:43:14

Argh, I’ve only just spotted the SOIC and TSOP pinouts on the SRAM are completely different. This explains why I couldn’t get SRAM reading and writing working on the Lynx SD Slim board! New board revision incoming... 🙄

SainT : RetroHQ :

August 30th 2019, 08:06:47

I’ve had one report of ROM loading freezing on the JagSD, if you have this issue PLEASE REPORT it. I’m not sure if this is bad cart connection, SD card issue or specific to the particular console. I can fix this, but it has implications for CD support for people with this issue!

SainT : RetroHQ :

August 29th 2019, 23:16:47

I noticed earlier today the first proper post I made about the JagSD was on the 20th of June 2016! That’s a bloody long time ago. Although I did also produce the NeoGeoPocket SD as well in the interim... 😄
Coming soon...

The Lynx SD Slim is now starting to happen! The Microcontroller and microSD are talking to each other and next to-do is hooking up the SRAM and other ancillary chips to get it talking to the Lynx.

Whoever decided output enable on this chip should be active high, not low, should be severely reprimanded and docked a months pay! If I see output enable, and I want it always on, I'm going to tie it to ground without even thinking, right? I hate 0.5mm pitch chip bodge wires! 😬

This is the support you get when you buy a premium product. Problems get investigated and resolved in minutes. 😆

I just want to double check I can replicate the issue and the fix is good, then a new firmware will follow.

Hows the Chinese knock-off support these days? 😝
Just wanted to confirm the bug is what I thought it was. Using the MRQ files will solve the problem. There will be a firmware fix tomorrow. 😄

First batch of JagSD mail dropped off. Order tracking numbers now available in your account and tracking should update once the sorting office have dome some sorting! Not sure how long this takes given it's Saturday... 🤔

People have spoken, it is clear I must work on a Puzzle Bobble style game for the Jaguar. With spinner control! Mmmm, spinner.

I’m saddened by the lack of love for Puzznic, though. Loved that game and have written a couple of clones of it already... 😆
What style of arcade puzzler would you like to see on the Jaguar? Comment if your favourite is not there!

I've had the pleasure of having a chat with Arcade Attack @Arcade_Adriano about all things retro and Jaguar shaped. Have a read for a bit of rose-tinted reminiscing and looking toward the retro future!

Yeah, thanks for the support. I can understand things being too expensive and passing, but hoping my livelihood will be destroyed by a knockoff and any hope for further hardware being developed by myself destroyed so you can save £50? Fuck you. 😡

Looks stunning!
"Alpharay" is an R-Type style shoot em up for the Commodore 16 & Plus/4. Created by Stefan Mader (MAD) of Bauknecht fame, it is no suprise that this game is a technical masterpiece. Incredible. Download it for free here:

NGPC backlight mod under $50?! Blimey! I might have to get me one of those. The screen does look at tad smaller, but, meh, it’s back lit! 👌
Oh snap, a Neo Geo Pocket backlight install? No friggin way! Finally, you’ll never play your NGP games in the dark again!

For me this is like the spectrum next. I just don’t see the point in it. I want to... but I just can’t. If I want something fast, I’ll use a PC. If I want something original, I’ll use my old machines. This just sits in some odd limbo place for me. Am I the only one thinking this?

Peace, quiet, sun and @bitmap_books CRPG book. Heaven. 😄

There's something about CRPG's, no matter how old or crude, that draws me in. Somehow poor or nonexistent graphics can actually cause me to be drawn deeper into the fantasy world.

See you on the other side... 😆
