JagStudio is an advanced development suite for the Atari Jaguar that allows you to code using Assembler, BASIC or C and is based around Reboot's powerful RAPTOR API. Regardless of your programming capabilities, beginners to advanced coders can utilize this flexible package that will fully suit the needs of anyone looking to program exciting new games for the Jaguar. The benefits of using JagStudio are the Hardware Abstraction Layers (HALs) and the combination of external modules available to use. This allows you, the developer, to get on with writing your games while taking advantage of the Jaguar's powerful chipset without worrying about tedious, underlying mundane routines. The same results that once took days or weeks to achieve can now be done in a matter of minutes, thanks to the power of JagStudio! You are one click away from 64-bit creativity! Some of the features of JagStudio include: Code in your language preference of Assembly, BASIC or C. (Assembly and C are currently in Beta... help us make them better!) Commands have been renamed (from rB+) to reflect the individual modules they control and prefixed as such: rapPrint, u235PlaySample, etc. RAPTOR API Debug Function brings useful program variable visibility to the forefront, aiding ease of game development. GameDrive support along with MRQ file creation. ROM builder now adds FAST GPU depack by default for quicker startup times. Ability to build and split ROMs up to 6MB into HI/LO for EPROM burning. Updated both RAPTOR and U235 Sound Engine APIs to current versions, bringing additional benefits of both in a single updated package. Added universal JagPad Input - A single call that works with either U235 or ZeroSquare sound engine so projects can be easily converted between the two should your needs change. Many enhancements and bug fixes to the original rB+ code (eg, you can now include files >4mb, all files unpacked using GPU by default) All documentation and examples have been updated with a simple rB+ to JagStudio conversion guide to bring your old projects over to the fully updated JagStudio. Includes project examples for all supported languages (Assembly, BASIC and C) for anyone looking to get started quickly. We plan on keeping this alive and active, with ongoing improvements and new features and look forward to seeing what you all make with it. The current release of JagStudio along with any previous versions can be obtained by visiting the JagStudio Homepage. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask in the newly created JagStudio Forum here on AtariAge.
