What's next after the Atari ST ports?

 

Possibly Amiga ports? I'd love to play me some Banshee on the Jag!

Much harder to do than the ST ports due to the AMIGA audio and video hardware, from what i understand. Would be cool though, that way we could get Road Rash on the Jaggy, hehe.

I disagree,'cause Cannon Fodder shows that the Jaguar clearly can support Amiga-styled graphics & sound.

Of course it can. What i meant is that its more dificult or time consuming, since you have to rewrite the audio and video engines. On ST, most of the work is done by the CPU, the M68000, so its easier to port code to the Jaguar since it also uses that CPU.

Thats my guess, Cyrano or someone with tech knowledge could explain better.

Knowing that the Jaguar flashcart is now a reality,maybe we could see a port of Quake for the Jaguar.

 

I think you already forgot. Quake can't be ported to the Jag because Reboot have an iron grip on the Jag community.

Wouldn't want to be holding back homebrew development like that, would we, RAMR?

Atari ST and Jaguar shared hardware making it possible for ports form ST to Jaguar. If Cannon fodder, Syndicate, Zool 2, Sensible soccer and so on is Amiga or PC ports I don't know, but a game like Ultra Vortek was programmed on an Amiga (think the manual mention it) so not impossible imo.

 

What's next, I reckon, might be more CJ ST ports next to Rebooteroids, and this guy here in this thread seems to be on the case to port som games over to Jaguar:

Banshee as I see it is a Amiga CD32 classic, and should stay that way! Just kidding. Cheers!

I would be curious about the early Macintosh games in the 68000 days and how they differed in programming to the Jaguar/ST.

 

Games I always thought would be fun to see are very few, but would mean I could fire up a Jag for the old Mac games.

 

Arkanoid has already been ported. Shufflepuck Cafe is a ST game also, and in color.

 

Which leaves for me:

 

Cap'n Magneto (a simple RPG).

Dark Castle

Return to Dark Castle

Creepy Castle

Rescue (Star Trek game).

 

Yeh yeh, I tend to not play many games at any one time. That or there were simply not many Mac games available.
