recent times have been a bit of a bummer with all of the insanity going on in the world so I have been trying to do things that are a bit less stressful. I woke up one day last week and said "you know what? I'm gonna try my hand at porting over that COJAG arcade game Fishin' Frenzy over to the actual Jaguar console"
So I started on it already. I used PhotoShop 2020 and honeycam to rip most of the graphics from the game. About 70% of everything in the actual arcade game has already been ripped and I am still ripping sprites and such now. I have spent about 2 or 3 days on this conversion so far and it's coming along nicely. Now being that I don't have the actual source code to the original arcade game, this is actually a re-creation and not an actual port. With that being said I am convinced I can make a 100% accurate replica of the arcade game. One cool thing about this is that I can run the real game in MAME and at the same time run my version in Virtual Jaguar and simultaneously control both games with the same controller. This sounds bizarre but is actually very helpful in identifying what needs to be changed in my version vs the real thing. Below is a video of both my conversion and the real game. MAME is running on the right and the Jaguar version is running on the left in Virtual Jaguar so you guys can get an idea of just how close it's coming along. You may notice that some of the sound effects are not exactly the same. This is because I was unable to rip some sounds like the "Cha-Ching!" sound when you catch a fish. For these sounds I found similar samples online and adjusted the pitch using audacity to match the original sounds as close as possible. Anyway working on this little guy has been very relaxing and I am enjoying the hell out of it! Have a look!

I was extremely bored today and feeling creative so I decided to try my hand at something that will prove to be really challenging to pull off. It's still very early in the works as I have only spent about a day on it but never the less I decided to share here:
I'm Not sure why ANTS hasn't been shown as part of the Atari Jaguar homebrew library here, but below is a review of the game:
And unfortunately the game, like Saucer Wars is being removed from the Wave 1 Games store. Below is the offer for the final cart run of the game that I have already shared on social media:
Hello all! In addition to removing Saucer Wars from the Wave 1 Games store, we are also removing ANTS on cartridge. We will make one FINAL run of 25 ANTS carts as well. The special going away price for these carts will be $30. These are fully boxed with manuals, and controller overlays. Each one will be hand numbered. After these are gone, there will be NO MORE ANTS on cartridge. This is a LIMITED RUN so don't miss out! Click the link below to order. If you are outside of the United States and would like this offer, please send me a PM
