I'm attempting to compile and document everything known in existence related to the Jaguar - most specifically unreleased games and betas - and make it easily accessible. This is a very rough draft and early work in progress list that I'll update accordingly. I've been talking to a few different people in hopes to make sure all of these are easily available for download - so that's a work in progress as well - but the work on that has already begun as of last week.

 

Looking to continue and update where Cyber Roach or Hans left off, include all the incredible information and legwork provided by Lost Dragon and everyone else who could make all of this possible - I can't even begin to list names from memory. If you have any unreleased examples that aren't on this list, please let me know so that I can update it accordingly.

 

I have verified this list to be accurate and will not include items that have not been verified by myself first-hand, so you can rest assured of its authenticity.

I can say with all honesty, this is utterly fantastic and amazing news and i appreciate just how mammoth an undertaking this is, so i pray your efforts are appreciated by the wider Atari Community.

 

I'm proud to of found the odds n sods i have, hopefully it's been able to shed light on a few misc titles, qwash a few Press claims simply repeated as fact and made folks a little more aware of just how much 'false advertising' was done in name of the Jaguar and that mock up shots should never be taken as 'proof'.

 

Also how you need to specify regional developers..ie you cannot just list Water World as Ocean...you need to specify Ocean USA as entirely different coding teams etc.

 

 

I wish you and indeed all those still putting in the hours, looking into Lost Jaguar games the very, very best of luck.

 

Here's to the much bigger list and many more finds to come.

 

But in the here and now, thank you so much for doing this my friend.

Thanks for putting this list together Clint! Really nice work. We're going to try to incorporate this as part of the Jaguar section on the main website  :emoji-E420:

Hi Clint this list is a good start, better that we gonna use a kind of excel sheet or something that support collumns.

 

Also let us, add the md5 hash for each proto/beta/unreleased item on your list.

This way other people can help out if they got something of the list with another md5 hash, sometimes it turns out the format is different .abs/cof, jag or bin or 1 rom has a good encrypted header and one does have an universal header.
But maybe we can find more different builds.

 

I verified already these

Hi,

 

I already started with a list check here https://docs.google....dit?usp=sharing

 

Anyone who has something to complete the list let me know.

Yeah, a spreadsheet was on the list but looks like you already made the jump! =) and while I think the MD5 stuff is awesome, the only problem I find with it is that if someone added a boot header or otherwise to a ROM, it'll change it - so that doesn't automatically mean it's definitely different.

 

Also, I've already uploaded the Arena playfied test, Jack Nicklaus Golf and some others you have listed as 'NO' on the list in the uploads folder. Everything on that list should read yes, I just haven't had a chance to locate and upload everything from my older hard drives.

no problem I always compare roms headerless so pure rom content.

 

Also abs/cof I convert to ROM headerless I found already some duplicates from a few files that I found as ABS but also had in ROM format.

I keep always the version I found, instead of converting it to ROM and keep that version.

 

Some are put to now, because I didn't verify those yet, I got atleast 4 builds of golf. But as you know its a thing I do in sparetime.

This weekend I am busy with family business but every minute I got I will continue.

 

Just upload it sorting will be done later I hope you didnot expect it to be ready within a week ?! :-)

Updated the list a bit more will be done later. If anyone has a rom that's verified and has a different md5 hash please let me know. then we may have found a new version that needs to be tested and verified and when indeed different it will be added to the list.

Thank you...  if someone can verify the zero 5 beta/rom size. It's a mistery why the beta is 4Mb and the release version 2MB did they remove stuff for the release ?

Once we get the majority of things up on the JagServer, we should also add the dates of the original rom builds just before the MD5.

yep this round its a quick round to elliminate the duplicates or find new roms, the second round we complete the details and double check then we should have a very accurate list.

Just noticed the beta of Crescent Galaxy is 4MB where as the released version is only 2MB. It was such a turd that I've completely overlooked this. Wonder how much better or different the beta is in comparison!

Did a file comparison and I'm not sure why but there's a huge gap or empty block, not sure if that's what is making up the extra space or not. Either way, the annoying intro music is gone, the title screen is slightly different and the level select is different with all levels appearing to be endless and forever.
