Re: Theme Park thread

I have been playing this a bit. Now according to some magazine reviews I read there were a couple things that I expected to happen that would be a large part of my Theme Park on the Jaguar experience. 1. Slowdown. 2. Graphical glitches #2 has been a large part of why I have held off on buying this g...

Re: I got Syndicate in the mail today...

So below half?

I have the Jaguar version.
I'll try that.

On the Jag version the arrow-option to center/adjust the screen doesn't work. C-arrow(D-pad) to adjust the left panel does work. Does it work on the 3D0?

Re: Theme Park thread

I have not got into playing this yet but watching the attract screens this engine seems to be a bit smoother than Syndicates. Though Theme Park may use Syndicate's engine I think they reworked some subroutines on their second go around. When as much action happens in Syndicate like I'm seeing in The...

Re: SkunkBox for the SkunkBoard!

Woke up.

Opened phone.

Looked around the net

Thought 'fuck! Did 8 bit demo coders overrun the Jag community and start pumping shit back onto the internet?'

Realised it was just the regular refugees from the 8 bit demo scene and went off to find bacon.

Have a good day folks.

Re: Sewer Shark

Is there any way an SD card can be made for the 3DO? And perhaps plugged into some port in the back that will load up CD images?

If I we're rich I'd have cd mechanisms remade for the 3D0 so it would never have to die.

The Blitter Interrupt Stack

Atari had suggested in one of their developer docs that the way to keep the Blitter (the processor in the Jaguar used to copy textures or draw shaded polugons) busy was to form a stack of commands, and just load them into the Blitter each time it finishes its current operation, so thats what I tried...

Re: DOOM with fixed networking

I am pretty sure Thunderbird optimised Doom completely for the Jag for his own enjoyment. And has probably been through several refinements in the last decade or so.

If we seen a video of it we'd probably crap our pants. 320*240 rez. 30fps. Transparencies.

Whoops my bad. It was ggn. Thinking of soulstar maybe.

You figured out how to compress the levels then decompressed them? Impressive. I know in his original tutorial they were uncompressed.

Oh I thought this was the original ggn hack. I know his only had 12 because they were uncompressed in the ROM.

Maybe with the SD card you can have all the levels you want

Re: Doom Hack videos

The wads in these hacks are uncompressed which is why there's only 12 levels.

I actually found the compression decompression file one time that id used and lost where it was stored.
