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!:

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... 🙄

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!

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!

It's alive! The PC3 is alive! Obligatory removal of anything which might go bang before first power on. Really pleased to have this Atari relic in my possession. 😊

After my little bit of ranting on the negative, I just wanted to say a huge thanks to everyone for their unbelievable support during getting this project to release! First units will be shipping around the beginning of next week. 😄
