SubQmod did an arcade perfect port of Donkey Kong for the Jaguar by converting the original source code over. I got to play it at Jagfest in 2010 but he sadly never released it and just disappeared from the community. I remember that he actually asked Nintendo's permission to release it and they refused so I suggested he change the Mario sprite to Bentley Bear, change a few other graphics and call it Crystal Kong! He was going to actually do this and I never heard from him again.

That's too bad.  DK would be an easy game for the Jaguar to handle.  :)  Is there any video of this conversion?

That sucks.  It would have been nice to at least see it.  You were lucky!
