JagChris Posted January 1, 2007 Share Posted January 1, 2007 (edited) These are the steps I took to get up and running with BJL and the Atari development setup from Belboz's website. My dev setup is using an old Pentium ONE system with Windows 95 installed. Using and old 95/98 DOS based OS with a low end Pentium One or Two setup is recommended for using the BJL setup and the Atari Jaguar development setup. These steps assume you already have BJL and the adapter with an appropriate cable and know how to use them. I have a shortcut to DOS on my desktop. I call it JaguarGCC. When I click on that It's all setup to run the Jag.bat file I have with the Jag dev enviroment variables and starts me out in the 'Jag' dev setup directory. Here is what the Jag.bat text file looks like: @ECHO OFF set PATH=%PATH%;C:\JAGUAR\BIN set RDBRC=C:\JAGUAR\BIN\RDB.RC set DBPATH=C:\JAGUAR\BIN set ALNPATH=C:\JAGUAR\BIN set MACPATH=C:\JAGUAR\INCLUDE set GCC_EXEC_PREFIX=C:/JAGUAR/BIN Also included is an image of where it is in the 'Jaguar' dev setup directory.(It's in the root directory). So in order, this is what I did to get my dev. setup working on my PC. 1.) Unzipped Belboz's Official Atari Jaguar development pack into a Folder/directory on my HD I created that I called "Jaguar". I might as well put the Link to Belboz's website HERE. Go to his download area and get the Jaguar developer tools. 2.) Created .bat file(It's just a text file) called Jaguar.bat in the root directory of 'Jaguar' with the necessary enviroment variables I needed to run the development enviroment which are posted above. 3.) Created a DOS shortcut on the desktop I named "JaguarGCC" with the 'Program' properties modified like in this image. 4.) Created a directory inside the "Jaguar" dev root directory I called 'MyStuff' to hold programs/files I may be working with, compiling and uploading to BJL. 5.) Replaced the original video.s file in the *3d/LIB directory of the Jag tools with the attached video.s file[zipped up] (So BJL video will work properly with the stuff you compile and upload to it, otherwise you'll just get a blank black screen.) Thanks again to Belboz for figuring out the problem and creating this fix for BJL users. VIDEO.zip 6.) Got rid of the shitty and very broken make.exe that comes with Atari's dev setup and am using M$ NMAKE 1.5 in its place. Now when I want to work with the Jag dev stuff (mostly compiling and uploading) I click on my JaguarGCC DOS shortcut. It takes me right to the Jag/Mystuff directory in a DOS Window, with all the appropriate enviroment variables all set up, and I'm ready to go. I hope this helps anyone who is wandering around here looking to get started using the Atari dev setup and BJL.
