Ever dream of having your whole library of Atari Jaguar games in a single cartridge*? The Jaguar GameDrive for the Jaguar allows you to load your game back-ups (commonly known as ROMs) on an microSD card, put the microSD card into the Jaguar GameDrive, put the Jaguar GameDrive into a Jaguar system and have your list of games at your finger tips. Please read the FLASH CART DISCLAIMER below before purchasing.

This updated version of the Jaguar GameDrive cartridge has support for EEPROM save games as used by some homebrew software as well as improved game load time (no longer than 1 second for the largest games) and an improved game selection menu.

The Jaguar GameDrive has full support for all games and sizes of EEPROM (used to save game progress). The EEPROM contents are saved directly to the memory card along with your game, so everything is stored in one place.

You will need to provide a memory card (FAT or FAT32 formatted) and your own ROM images (JAG, J64, ROM, BIN, ABS) to play. A selection of freeware games are linked in the resources section below.

Basic Edition vs. Deluxe Edition

The Basic Edition comes with just the Jaguar Game Drive cartridge with label and printed manual. Whereas the Deluxe Edition includes the cartridge, a case, printed manual, a Jaguar GameDrive sticker, Stone Age Gamer sticker, and is covered by a 2-year Warranty.

Features

  • All retail games and homebrew working

Hardware Compatibility

  • Atari Jaguar without Jaguar CD installed
  • EEPROM support for 128, 512 and 2048 byte EEPROMs
  • FAT16/32 formatted MMC compatible micro memory card
  • JagLink currently not supported

* Cartridge shells are SLS 3D printed. While this is a high quality 3D printing technique, the cartridge will have a more textured feel compared to injection molded shells.

    Everything about this is awesome.

    Posted by Bryan Fischer on Apr 19th 2021

    I started following the development of the Jaguar Game Drive a year ago and after finding out that Stone Age Gamer would have it I reached out with questions. What I received were dozens of incredibly helpful responses in a timely fashion and made me absolutely certain that ordering the Game Drive through SAG was the right move. I received my order incredibly fast and was blown away by the quality not only of the cartridge, but the case and the additional things that game with it. The case holds the cartridge snuggly and the label on the cartridge looks very spiffy in and out of the Jaguar. The Game Drive works like a dream and is very easy to put games onto. I can't stop playing with this thing! Seriously, the customer service was the cherry on top of a great product.

    No-Frills Success!

    Posted by Galgomite on Apr 19th 2021

    I waited a long time for the Jag Gamedrive and am happy to say it’s worth the wait!
    Pros:
    -The most important stuff is here and everything works!
    -The Stoneage Gamer label looks great, easily my favorite variant.
    -Boots more reliably than retail games!
    -CD support with firmware update.
    -Every game I have tried runs.
    -Fast load times.
    -The menu is easy to use.
    -The included abandonware games are a nice touch.
    Cons:
    -The 3D-printed cart shell looks fine but is not pleasant to the touch.
    -CD games require a CLI conversion tool that didn’t work with the files I had. (Does work though, per other users.)
    -I have to choose “headerless ROM” when loading or my games won’t run.
    In all I am very happy with the GameDrive. It looks like there will never be a need for a different version, this one does it all and even fixes common boot problems. Highly recommended!

    The cart to rule them all

    Posted by Mastamuzz on Apr 18th 2021

    If you are reading this you don't need an explanation of what this cart can do, how does it work? that's where I come in, it works as advertised but is it fast? yes it loads games fast, as you may know the CD support is on beta stage at the time of this "review"

    If you have a pristine collection and want to keep your carts looking good consider this cart a jukebox player, you are trying to make a game? test it on this cart, homebrew, you know all the possibilities so grab it whenever it's available if you have a Jaguar you need this cart.

    works fantastically and will get better when CD support comes.

    Posted by Steven Teixeira on Apr 18th 2021

    Jaguar GD has played all the officially released games i've played thus far and it does it well. This product is valuable during this time when Jaguar emulation is still very broken and there's no other product like this available anywhere else. CD support is unfortunately still in early beta in the time this review was written but CD support is officially confirmed possible, it's going to happen, and no expensive Jaguar CD add-on device is required to play the CD games.. When CD support improves beyond it's current state, the Jaguar GD will be get better.

    Works great!

    Posted by Jerry on Apr 17th 2021

    It's simple to setup, all games work flawlessly from it as if running from any other retail cartridge. The game selection menu is also nice; with a little research you can give all the games artwork and screenshots for a better idea of what kind of game you're selecting. Highly recommended!

    Works great!

    Posted by Ryan on Apr 16th 2021

    Does exactly what you’d expect if you’ve ever used another rom cart. It’s easy to set up and get working. Games run flawlessly on it, just like an original cartridge. It’s an easy recommend with the scarcity and price of original carts these days. Plus Jaguar CD support has been recently added. Jump on the waitlist, you won’t be disappointed!

    Jaguar GD

    Posted by Reviewer on Apr 14th 2021

    Still new to me so getting used to it but glad I was able to snag one. CD games were just added in the latest firmware although I haven't had a chance to test them out. A bit of an unloved system but plenty of interesting games to check out.
