Jagfest 1999
« on: July 04, 2020, 19:50:53 PM »
This was posted yesterday and I thought it was worth sharing...

Back on June 18th of 1999 Carl Forhan (https://songbird-productions.com/) hosted the third annual gathering of the Atari Jaguar faithful at JagFest in Rochester, MN.  Besides lots of hands-on gaming, museums and collections, tournaments, linked-up Lynx sessions etc. Carl demonstrated some unpublished Atari Jaguar games and did some interviews as well.  This video has almost 80 minutes of JagFest 1999 and game demo footage, enjoy!

I just finished watching this. Really cool to be able to see this event from 1999 and what was happening with the Atari scene at the time.  It was nifty seeing something like five guys playing on the Lyxn via ComLynx!  I also noticed a certain bit of Jaguar hardware that I don't think I have seen before. It's some sort of arcade-stick for the Jaguar.  Has anyone ever seen this particular one?  I'm curious if @Saturn owns one of these!  I know that different ones have been made through the years.
