Download the BadCode Demos for Atari Jaguar
Unlike many of the bogus developers who have interrupted the history of the Atari Jaguar since
Atari Corporation closed shop, BadCoder has released a number of binaries for Jaguar enthusiasts,
but made no promises about commercial game projects in the future, and continues to promise
Instructions for binaries on BJL, JUGS, JagOS or an Atari Alpine 2.
Having some means of running my Jaguar demos is no good unless you have a clear idea of how to
run them. On this page I've detailed how each of the available Jaguar hardware solutions for
running "Homebrew" games works, and given the details for uploading my binaries to them. I will
expand this later to explain how to run games from other developers.
Reserving Names for Possible Future Projects
BadCoder has been seeing that other people are using his bad project concept and to complete
some possible future projects is announcing the names here. They are not being sure if BadCoder
having time, he finishing like in past, these projects are only game designs today, maybe never
coming alive, sorry. (Better development platforms for teaching now than Atari Jaguar, like
Download Sample Source Code for Atari JaguarSo far BadCoder has not released any source code for the Atari Jaguar, but this has just been because he wants to release useful code with a lot of comments in it, which enthusiastic Jaguar fans can customise to create their own demos and games quickly and easily with the minimum of knowledge of low-level Jaguar programming. Only knowledge of the Motorola M68000 assembly language will be required once BadCoder has his demo source code released, at least for simple programming demos.
Other Development Resources for Amateur Game Developers
BadCoder is not alone in providing information for the amateur game developer of course, and this page provides links to a selection of commercial and amateur game development sites, Jaguar game development resources, and the various Jaguar hardware solutions for both developing Jaguar games and playing Underground Jaguar games.

Background - Who is BadCoder?
BadCoder is hoping to demonstrate, (using the discontinued but powerful Atari Jaguar
console as an example,) that almost anybody can program (or help to develop) imaginative and fun
video-games, given enough effort and some clear advice. His focus is only on classic consoles
