I agree with that in some regard as the Skunkboard gave access to all these cool files to check even to the non-technical folks like me. So the old dream of owning an alpine or a flashcard to check alphas and betas and such came through somehow. But still you had to flash the roms one at a time, it took some time, the Jaguar had to be connected to a computer, at least on mine (until I got Matthias SD adapter and loader proto), you could not save games and so on. The Game Drive improved on all this in a very significant way. It's faster, you can have all the roms on it, it saves your games... And hopefully soon it will also allow for the CD's and my main motivation for it, the VLM without the need to use the CD-ROM. So I see this as an enormous improvement in all aspects and practicability over the Skunk's similar but much more basic functionality. Not to take anything away from the Skunk because I really was impressed and happy for that solution for a long time. With the GD I see myself playing the games, where I merely "tried stuff out" on the Skunk Board. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
