In 2012, Torlus wrote an open-source FPGA Atari Jaguar called JagNetLists. It was built for the Stratix-II FPGA in the Nios-II dev kit, and contained a working 68000 implementation. ElectronAsh has started the process of porting JagNetLists to MiSTer and just released his initial code on Github with the hope that someone can step in […]
Ijor released the source code for FX68K a cycle-accurate Motorola 68000 soft-core (soft cores are components, rather than whole platforms) that was first hinted at in the release of his Atari ST core FXCAST. The 68000 was a common processor used in a wide range of consoles, home PCs, and arcade games. Having a perfect […]
AtariAge user Sporadic has just posted an update of his homebrew Jaguar racing game, tentatively titled “Not Outrun”. Inspired by the classic Sega game, this racer has been in the works since 2015 and a version will be available to try at the Portland Retro Gaming Expo. Unfortunately, no public demo release is planned at this […]

There’s been a small update to the Jaguar memory cart project – It looks like the developer is finishing the firmware update code, which is a good sign that this long-awaited flash/rom cart project may finally be finishing up! No pre-orders have opened yet, but I’ll have a post here showing when it does!
Pre-ordered for two new Atari Jaguar games have just opened on Atariage: http://atariage.com/forums/topic/283125-defender-of-the-crown-and-treasure-island-dizzy-arrive-on-the-jaguar/ I’m gonna go out on a limb here and say that these games most likely use the Motorola 68000 processor built into the Jaguar and not the main Tom & Jerry chips, resulting in a more 16-bit look. Still, it’s fun to see […]

So about a month to go.“ An update was just posted (09-24-2018) to the Atari Jaguar Pro Controller project: “This project has taken a lot longer than I could believe it could unfortunately due to persistent delays. Just when […]
