The Atari Jaguar is a video game console that was developed by Atari Corporation in 1993. It was marketed as the first 64-bit gaming system, but was a commercial failure, and is widely regarded as one of the worst systems ever made.

The console later received a CD-ROM peripheral called Atari Jaguar CD, released in 1995.

Ripping Tools

JagView interface

JagView

JagView is a tool to find and display uncompressed Jaguar pictures embedded in a ROM file (or separate files). The tool supports 8-bit, RGB and CRY (unique to Jaguar) formats, has a zoom feature and a number of premade settings for specific games. It is similar to Texture Finder and can be potentially usefull for searching through non-Jaguar roms and archives too. JagView is available for Windows at jagware.org.

Suggested Emulators

Phoenix

Phoenix is a multi emulation program that can emulate the 3DO, Sega Master System, Colecovision but most importantly; The Jaguar. The compatibility is a little over 95% with only 12 games that aren't fully or don't function at all.

The emulator is currently only in Russian and may have extremely bad framerate.
