Virtual Jaguar


Virtual Jaguar is an Atari Jaguar emulater ported by SDLEMU (Niels Wagenaar & Carwin Jones) and is based upon the original work by David Raingeard of Potato Emulation.


For requirements please consult the INSTALL file for more information about supported OS's and software requirements.


The Virtual Jaguar GCC/SDL portable Jaguar emulator has been successfully ported and run on the following platforms:

  • Linux
  • Win32
  • MacOS
  • BeOS


The original source was based upon Aaron Giles CoJag driver from M.A.M.E. and used the Starscream 68000 emulator core. Since then Starscream has been replaced by the more portable Musashi 68000 core and lots of improvements and changes have obscured the underlying code’s CoJag origins (to be fair, Mr. Raingeard had made quite a few changes from the CoJag driver before we got our hands on it)! The Musashi 68000 core has since been replaced with a heavily customized version of UAE’s 68000 core.


Currently all the major subsystems found in a real Jaguar are emulated to some degree. There are of course some problems remaining—some that we are aware of, and many more that we are not! See the Compatibility section to get a feel for some of the undiscovered problems…
