Clint Thompson Posted April 26, 2018 Share Posted April 26, 2018 Here are some cool curiosities to check out on the Jag if you have your Skunk locked and loaded: a super early build (possibly the first) of Zzyorxx II from Virtual Experience and a Burnout Preview Demo (for CES?) First and foremost, huge thanks to the National Videogame Museum (http://www.nvmusa.org)-- they were able to locate these disks in their archives and retrieve the data. Check them out in Texas if you're ever out that way, tons of cool stuff to see! Had the pleasure of meeting with John Hardie from NVM in person at JagFest during Midwest Gaming Classic this year, super cool guy. It was really nice of him to bring along several prototypes for display that you may have seen at the event. Second huge thanks goes out to CyranoJ (Lawrence) of http://reboot.atari.org--(Rebooteroids, Xenon II, Last Strike(WIP), etc.) as without his deep diving and Jaguar knowledgebase/expertise, the remains of these files would not be playable today. While he can go into further detail if he likes, about what he had to go through in order to get these things working properly, the short answer is it required a custom boot loader so the Jaguar could execute them into playable form. While not a lot to see and probably less than most are hoping for in regards to Zzyorxx, would appear to be the only known remains to date of Zzyorxx II. Still cool to check out and see running though! Hopefully some of you enjoy what was uncovered and shared here through their efforts. Thanks to both John and Lawrence for your help!
