Yeah that's the issue, how hard are these games to convert? Calling all experts?

Well, there is now a thread over at AA on this very subject (converting X68000 games to the Jag), started by TXG/MNX who is also a member here. He mentions reading something about it so I would assume he got the idea from here so it looks like you had a good idea Kidgamer  :) Not sure if it will go anywhere but it's a start.

I think we all have wishlists of games that should appear on the Jaguar. It's been that way for 20 years, I think it's mostly just wishful thinking. That's not poo-pooing ideas, but it's just reality after all these years, there's always been wishlists discussed about the Jag. There's very few people that can actually do the job required, and they only have so much time and resources available to bother. Instead we get a good homebrew once every five years, and in-between there we get goofy little 8-bit timewaster 'free-app-of-the-day' crap.

Willyvmm over at AtariAge has just announced that the next batch of skunkboards are available to purchase.  The price is 75E, plus shipping.  Just got my order in, given that there's regularly a shortage of these at a sensible price on the open market.

Thanks for the heads up avick, I'm sure a number of people will be wanting one of those.

As for conversions of older tried and tested games, yes, it is a question of time and resources. I read on here somewhere about a software publisher that created their own program to link the Jag to a PC for this very purpose. So, it is just a question of money really. Lottery, here I come ;)

Well, that's going on this weekend.  I would have loved to go but no such luck.
