Atari Jaguar SDCart preorders

Postby alexh » Wed Aug 21, 2019 2:25 pm

If you don't know about this then where have you been for the last 2 years? James Boulton, co-author of the SainT emulator has been developing an Atari Jaguar Flash Cartridge similar to the Everdrive or SD2SNES

It is 100% compatible with all existing commercial "ROMs" and some (all?) demos and ST ports. It has a very slick selection menu with box artwork etc.

While it is not shipping with support for JagCD it was has been demonstrated to work as an ODDE (optical disc drive emulator) for JagCD ISOs and if the Dev can get time it may come as an upgrade later.

Pre-orders opened yesterday to a huge response and they've pre-sold at least 500 units which (to me) is amazing and just shows the demand is there

Don't forget to check out the YouTube channel for videos of the unit working and the dev history

Looking forward to this, 641, that's momentous. I think I managed to get on the order list at about half that, looking very good so far! SainT really has done some good work here!

Good grief! If this is 1 per customer and we are heading for nearly 700 units ordered in the first few days... Well...

Thats a good incentive for all the Jag devs out there!
