Title: List of Banned Games
Post by: overlord on August 08, 2009, 11:38:26 pm
Here is my initial list of ROMs and CD images that are not to be discussed in any way, shape, or form here on the Free Jaguar Project forums. All of these are games that have been produced and/or publsihed by homebrew developers since the end of the classic era of the Jaguar. Also, please keep in mind that this list is not comprehensive, nor is it final. I will keep this list updated as new homebrew games are released, or games that have been determined for one reason or another to be off-limits to discussion. If you notice any errors or corrections that need to be made, please send me a PM or email me at overlord@atari.org. If you are a developer or publisher and you wish to add a game that is not on this list or have one removed, please contact me ASAP and I will make the correction immediately.

I am doubtful this list will do much good in the grand scheme of things, but it's a nice start nevertheless. Here's to thinking positively!

It would be really nice to see some people step up & have them removed & open for discussion etc.

Why not? People see any game from the list get discussed here and we didn't notice, they notify us, we delete and act appropriately regarding the user.

I just meant in the broader sense. It will probably do little to allay the concerns or perturbation of some people i've seen.

Anyway, like I said, it's a good step.

It's a long road, maybe one day we can look back at these early days & wonder why it didn't happen sooner : here's hoping!

Agreed!  ;D  I think we all want to be fair to the current developers while still allowing the rest of us to freely enjoy the Jaguar!

I'd like to clarify if the games on that list can be discussed openly as games - obviously not as objects of dissection.

Eg, "That Painter SE is a great game. And the author has released the source code as well. Fantastic!"

Yes, games can be discussed simply as games. What we do not wish to see is discussion of them being used in any illegal manner. You can say you're playing the game that you legally own just fine. Just do not say that you are playing it via emulation or that you are extracting game assets from the ROM, or anything else along those lines.

Thank you very much, Carl! I have added another title of yours that I noticed was not originally on the list. If you notice any more games missing, please let me know!

Carl, welcome aboard, and thanks for clarifying the list a bit more Overlord.

Those are different systems.

Piracy is illegal and it's like counterfit tickets to a concert going on now. Just because they are being sold doesn't mean it's right.
The developers are currently programming games and it's important to respect that just like copying cds or dvds you don't have and selling them for another example. Please read the forum guidelines if you haven't already.

I posted a link to a tested working system and there are others out there. You can buy the new games directly from the people making them using the links provided. The new games will work on the original system.

I have added URL links to the authors of the games, so if you want to get hold of them, get in contact with them!

It'd be nicer to see people removing things from the list rather than adding to it... while the jaguar is still of at least some interest to people who do more than collect boxes to fill their shelves.

Sure it's not ideal, but I'd rather things be added if it's the developers wish then good people get into a lot of crap for it later because they didn't know.
