What developers think about it?
CoJag is an arcade machine based on Jaguar hardware and has own exclusive several games

Here you may see it:

I think a few of the CoJag games use a MIPS R3000 CPU as the host instead of a MC68000 - so these can't be made to work.

Area 51 uses a 68030 processor, IIRC, and also had a boatload more RAM. It would take a hell of a lot of work to get it working in any way on a Jag console.

So what theories do you have so far Sergi?

I've always invisioned a cartridge board with a 68030 processor in it, and any other added chips between the Jag and Co-Jag, redirecting the processes to look at the 68030 on the "Daughterboard"/cartridge.

Then for Area 51... somehow hacking light guns....

Well I heard that there is no such thing as a JagCF & that it is a kind of smokescreen  Undecided

What is the status of this project - does it actually exist or is it all theory?

ps. not meaning to be rude or anything, just letting you know what some folks say s'all

And gentlemen, one humble request, please no ribbing the Compact Flash project, we have seen more than enough of that on other places.   I want here to keep lite and fun.

I say for FJP, let people dream large, even express what they have in mind tons of times before it happens, and who knows, might given others a chance to give a needed part of the project that was missing before.

But let people dream, to talk, and when it comes out, it comes out.

Like the Co-Jag possibiliity.  Sure there are some hurdles to overcome.  The basic theory is, the Co-Jag has the Jaguar as a foundation.  That's a start.

There are processes in the 68030 that do not exist in the 68000.  Ok.  What are those, and how can we make those prossesses possible?

Let's narrow it down together.  If people want to try something here, let's give our support.

So far it has been good around here, and seeing the CF project brought up, just wanted to ask that we keep that positive as well.

You will not find any ribbing of the JagCF project here! I fully stand behind the JagWare team and will gladly purchase the JagCF once it is available!

Those pictures and video look nice.  Grin

Hmmm... sounds great.

We could probably do a Project One Deluxe Edition on CF!  (And distro the source code at the same time!)

YUMMM!!!! BRING IT ON!!!!
