Here is a bump for the Thea Realm Fighters question.
Not much I can tell you about TRF, I wasn't really directly involved in it.

Re: Hello again from Scott

VID GRID! Now that is the part game! On the weekends when my friends would come over with their n64s and PSXs after we'd play them at night we'd usually end up chilling out with the Jaguar CD player VLM and Vid Grid. That game got so much play! We still never unlocked the third level or whatever wi...

Re: Hello again from Scott

Tell us more about the anecdotal origin of the GPU manager if you can. Not so technical but at what point did you guys say this is horseyshit and there's gotta be a better way to do this. Is this gpumanager your brainchild? The chips on the Jaguar were the first time I had experienced a "manually-m...

Re: Hello again from Scott

1. What years did you work with HVS and what do you do now? I started with HVS in 1993. At that time, Sega Genesis and Super Nintendo were mature platforms. While I was at HVS we worked on (not in order) the Genesis, Super Nintendo, Sega GameGear, Atari Jaguar, Sega Saturn, Sega 32x, Matsushita M2,...

Hello again from Scott

Hey there - a31chris suggested I pop in here to chime in with some HVS memories... I think he has some questions ready to go but if anyone else is interested, I'd be happy to think really hard about any questions and come up with plausible-sounding answers that might have happened. As I mentioned on...

Re: Hello from Scott

... so it would be great to see the code. Hello Scott. I've been saying this for years. 8) Well, as Rene knows, I have one hard drive left to look at. There was a period of time that I did some work at home for HVS - but probably not much. I know I had an Alpine board set up in my Chicago apartment...

Re: Hello from Scott

Hi Scott nice to see you here. Tell us about the tool how it would work, in the maze demo text there is written that it was an automatic process so I guess write code, compile, process and run without any manual steps to edit anything. This seems to be a complex system. Did you compile the code wit...

Re: Hello from Scott

You manage to shut the 68k off completely? My understanding is no one else has been able to do that and I believe still need to use the 68k at least for VBL. Not to mention the function sizes can be bigger. Since it's been about 20 years (!) since I've thought about Jaguar fundamentals, it's hard f...

Re: Hello from Scott

The GPU manager tool would be very very cool to hear about. However its need is probably less critical since the hardware bug that stops the Jaguars GPU from executing code from main ram successfully now has a workaround for it. If you are interested you can see this workaround in the pinned thread...

Hello from Scott

Hey there - Scott Corley checking in. I got a nice email a while back letting me know about the Jaguar homebrew community, and asking about the old GPUMGR and other tools... Good to see McGroarty and Adisak chiming in here. I've been searching some old hard drives for code, but in the mean time, I c...
