Re: Happy Birthday ATARI JAGUAR!

I can't really answer your questions I'm afraid, I don't have that knowledge.

I was told that the vast majority of manufacturing problems were caused by IBM.

Re: Happy Birthday ATARI JAGUAR!

I'm merely repeating what I was told by people who would definitely know.

If you don't believe them that's up to you. But I have no reason not to and it also matches my own experiences of working for Game back in 1993 and 1994

Re: Happy Birthday ATARI JAGUAR!

Firstly it's not going to be a history article, we did that for the last anniversary. So if that's what you want you will be disappointed. Secondly the 2 million figure came from Darryl Still himself. He's repeated this many times in interviews and it was reported in a couple of magazines too I beli...

It really winds me up when I see Americans say this and even more when they can't see that it's wrong.

Re: Happy Birthday ATARI JAGUAR!

You've only to look at Atari's early tactics with major high street stores to see why retailers were wary of dealing with them. Atari threatened to cut supplies of their products to Toys R Us if they sold the Vectrex, Toys R Us did and Atari did nothing...but then pulled the same threat if Toys R U...

Re: Happy Birthday ATARI JAGUAR!

I have and tons of stuff, right now it would be finding the time to sort through it and post it. I don't have a lot of free time right now as I'm trying to finish off a bunch of important projects. If I get some time free closer to Christmas I'll post something. These videos might be of interest tho...

Re: Happy Birthday ATARI JAGUAR!

All I did was correct a few things that you got wrong and give a couple of my opinions on things. I don't believe I was hostile in the slightest and I'm not sure why my comments seem to annoy you so much. If that's the way I came across then I apologise, as somebody with Aspergers I tend to be very ...

Re: Happy Birthday ATARI JAGUAR!

Some copies of Aircars had already been sold prior to 1997 through Midnight Entertainment with Telegames as the distributor, in fact numerous people have released different versions of the game including B&C Computervisions and Beta Phase Games. Perhaps Carl isn't remembering it correctly and is tal...

Re: Happy Birthday ATARI JAGUAR!

Aircars had nothing do with Songbird. It's also quite a good game once you get past the ugly visuals, especially in link-up.

Apart from being in 3D, Iron Soldier, HoverStrike and BattleMorph play totally differently.

It's like saying what is it with the SNES and games where you jump on platforms?

Re: Happy Birthday ATARI JAGUAR!

The birthday was actually last month. I'm sure there will be something good in the magazine 8)

Beyond Games are still going, so they certainly did alright! I wrote a very in-depth archives on them for the mag, great bunch of guys.

Re: Your New Retro Gamer Community Team

So, I'm not seeing anything in the AUP or other guidelines regarding roms and emulation. Any long-standing rules on those? In general, legally-speaking, discussion about emulation is totally cool, but sourcing roms themselves is verboten. That's pretty much it. You can talk about them but not link ...

Re: Your New Retro Gamer Community Team

Don't split the games section into modern and retro, it is quite literally divisive. You'll end up with some who never venture into the opposing topics, missing out on great games and weakening any discussion that arises. Having modern and retro together makes more sense. This way, everyone sees al...

Re: Virgin Media Came to Town

I've used them for over 10 years now and would never change. You get the odd problem but they usually sort it pretty quickly. For me it comes down to speed most of all and nobody can touch Virgin on that. Even on the most basic package here I can have 120mb, that's over twice as fast as what BT offer!
