Since the Jaguar was very short-lived, programmers hadn't figured most of the quirks to properly exploit its power.For exemple, Doom famously used the sound processor to calcul the hit detections.
that controller will never stop being funny
>>5363530Because most of its games were made by Europeans.
>>5364806Euro computers often give a choice of either music OR sound effects
>>5363530The only thing that I remember about the Jaguar was that some store in a mall was offloading all of their Jag merchandise (this was just after Atari did their reverse acquisition thing in 96). I could've bought a mega-deluxe box set of the Jaguar game system for $50 dollars and probably every single Jag accessory & game that they had (plus the CD drive) for $200 total.I passed it up because I was too tired at the time and just wanted to go home.Not my finest hour.
>>5367863So you saw the deluxe box and reddit-spaced out of there huh.
>>5363537The fact that the Jaguar port of Doom used that processing power for hit detection and stuff, is probably why overall, the port actually ran so well.
>>5367863You really didn't miss out that hard.
>>5363530At least the arcade version got two good memorable games.http://www.system16.com/hardware.php?id=778
>>5367863I remember the exact same thing at Kaybee Toys at the mall - a literal wall of new Jags for $50. >>5368949Still, it would have been nice to sock away a room full of that shit to sell now at big profit. Reminds me of seeing Saturn Rayearth (US ver) brand new at EB when it came out for like $50.
