What is the Atari Jaguar?
From the wikipedia article
The Atari Jaguar was a video game console introduced in November 1993 against the Sega Genesis and the Super Nintendo Entertainment System as a powerful next generation platform. It was touted as the "first 64-bit system". The system eventually wound up as a commercial failure and prompted Atari to finally leave the hardware business.
It's pretty raw at the moment, it runs some commercial games, but at an exceptionally slow speed (4fps on average). The menu is pretty workmanlike and needs redoing.
- It's slow
- The UI is poor
- It doesn't run homebrew games
- It can run commercial games
First we need to migrate from the C based M68k code to a faster assembler based one (i.e. Cyclone). This should help a fair amount. Secondly some work will need to be done speeding up the Object and Blitter CPU's. Possibly utilising the dual core capabilities of the X2?
Unzip the emulator into a directory on your SD card. Place the uncompressed jagboot.rom (not included) into the bios directory and place any roms into the roms directory.
In the menu, Up/Down move up and down, B selects, A cancels.
