Second Annual- Atari Jaguar Festival, 1998 Newsletter #2 ///Round 2 Welcome to the second Jag Fest newsletter for 1998. Big stuff is up in the world of the 'Fest...more specifics, more attractions, and more Jaguar fun! Enough of this boring introductory junk, let's get to the goods... ///8 Jag Network? You Bet! Thanks to Guy Dupre, Jaguar fanatic extraordaniare, we'll be certain to have an 8 Jag network for the Fest, with 8 copies of AirCars, as long as ICD delivers before August 1st ;-). In fact, if enough other people bring Jags, we'll be able to have 2 8-Jag setups running simultaneously! I wonder what the record is? But, we'll still need TV's for every Jag, and that's where you come in. Bring a few, at least one for each Jag you bring, and an extra if possible. The more the merrier! If you decide to bring a monitor, make sure it is one that is CatBox compatible, such as the Atari SC1224/1435, or has composite inputs like the Commodore 1702. Here's a list of Analog RGB monitors which work with the CatBox: Atari SC1224 Atari SC1435 Magnavox CBM 1084D Magnavox CBM 1084S Magnavox Commodore 1950 Magnavox Pro RGB 80 NEC Multisync Color NEC 3D Sony 1302 Princeton Graphics Ultra If you have questions, please e-mail me at KevinManne@wycol.com. Guy has also agreed to bring his Scuba virtual-reality helmet (designed from the never-released JagVR),and even to make some Jaguar t-shirt transfers if he has the time/capability. Go Guy! ///Dentec Agrees Looking to buy Jaguar games at the Fest? Well you'll have no problem doing so since Dentec, a Canadian-based company, has agreed to attend and sell their large selection of Jaguar games at the Fest. For more info, check out their page at http://www.dentec.com/WarehouseSale/. They have great prices on even hard to find games like Atari Karts, and may even start carrying the new Telegames titles! Score another for the JagFest! ///Shareware Gets Cheaper Scott Walters, of BJL modification fame will be attending JagFest 98, and with him will come some BJL Jaguars at a special JagFest-only price of $99. So, for everyone who was a bit weary of buying a modified Jag, you can come check out all the games at the JagFest, and then pick one up right there on the spot for a lower-than-ever price! ///Definite Date Set Just in case you hadn't checked the JagFest homepage since the last update, the date for JagFest '98 has been officially set for August 1, 1998. Be sure to mark your calendar.... ///Take My Games...Please! I'm working on getting some Jaguar games and accessories together to give out as door prizes, and for winners of competitions. I only have a few things so far (T-shirts, a Team Tap...), so if you'd like to contribute anything, please contact me (Kevin), and I'll put your name up in lights on the JagFest page :-). ///JagFest Contributors With Chad unavailable to help the JagFest cause, I took over updating the page (which has a updated look, so check that out), and some others have chipped in to help out. Gotta give a "shout out" to the following kind folks: MHz (Newsletter Dispatcher) - Has agreed to send out the JagFest newsletters via his Atari Underground e-mail list in Chad's absence. He's probably the reason you're reading this (or throwing it in the trash). Dave Homenuck (Tournament Coordinator) - Will organize all the game tournaments at JagFest. Also doubles as the JagFest USENET correspondent. :-) If you have any suggestions for games, Guy Dupre (Hardware Guy) - Thanks to Guy, we'll definitely have an 8 Jaguar network of AirCars, and Battlesphere if it's released by August 1st. You da man. ///Promotion! I'm getting some flyers printed up this weekend to promote the fest, along with some business cards, and some full-color laminated posters only for the very special places. If you want to help promote JagFest, go to the JagFest homepage (http://www.geocities.com/Broadway/4062/, grab the flyer and print some out to hang in your town. Or, if you have any suggestions on how to help promote the Fest, please e-mail me and let me know! ///Game Over Be sure to pre-order your tickets for the Fest for $10, see details on the JagFest page.
