I was browsing the ATARI HQ ARCHIVE #1 CD-ROM I did find this info in a text file un path: \Software\PC\FLIC_Play
Load DEMO.ABS into TT / Falcon using the AREAD command. g 802000 to run.
The title sequence was the original sequence for the cartridge game and uses the Jaguar FLI playback code. The rest of the code is for PC tools and is the shell on top of which both sets of game code are to be written.
Use L/R to rotate the cameo on screen and U/D to adjust the brightness of the image. This shows some of the capabilities of the ATD library on which the games are built. The white border is the time taken to clear the screen and blit the rotating image.
I can't find this playback code for the Jaguar, any knows this program and maybe some has sources ?
Here is my latest game, Fallen Angels. It is a remake of the famous 8-bit game "Rescue on Fractalus". You must rescue stranded pilots on the enemy planet. This game can be loaded to the Jaguar RAM using a Skunkboard, BJL kit or a JagCD (after conversion to a CD image).

Like most of you here I'm swimming in more game systems then I should be and the jaguar doesn't always get as much love as it should. Fired up the jaggy today and had some serious play time. I know this is a jaguar forum but how often do you really play your jag and what time share would you say it gets these days compared to your other systems.

Since this is my first post, I would like to apologize If the answer to my question is obvious, but I was wondering if anyone knows what, if anything, has happened to Force Design's Mighty Frog? I noticed it isn't listed in the pinned upcoming releases thread. Has it been canceled? I also discovered that Force Design's website is down as well.
Why isn't this more commonly known? I picked up a Falcon controller a while back and was shocked at how superior in quality it is to a standard jaguar controller. The buttons have noticeable amount of added throw and spring to them compared to the 4 stock Jaguar pads I have, and the D-pad itself is completely different. Where the original was mush, flat, and with little throw, the new one is actually very elevated with a lot of throw and makes clicking noises when depressed. The actual shape of the d-pad from a profile view is much different - on the jag pad, it's flat and close to the plastic, while the falcon controller is raised so far at the tips of the d-pad that it actually makes a concave U shape when viewed from a profile.
I'd still say the Jag Pro pad is superior in shape, but damn I'm impressed with how improved this controller is. Anybody else have one?
Oh, it looks great too. Goes along well with my white Jaguar.
