Title: Atari Jaguar: T2K emulator setup in Linux
Post by: Saturn on August 21, 2016, 05:23:34 AM
Just got this set up and played an awesome game of Tempest 2000. Didn't know a Linux version existed until I happened across some posts while searching for JagCD games. Incredible 8)

Download Linux version tar from this site ( & place in Home directory

tar -xvf t2k-release-2005-09-16-194026.tar.gz

(can delete tar ball now, change the file extension on your dumped Tempest 2000 rom to .jag and place it in the folder that was created. Make sure the file is named exactly to: Tempest 2000.jag)

Back in Terminal"
cd t2k-release-2005-09-16-194026

F1 for full screen and F11 to throttle Jaguar realistically (slow it to normal speed)
While playing press Esc to access settings

F1 - Fullscreen toggle
F11 - Throttle toggle
O - option
P - pause (see below)
Z - A
X - B
C - C
Arrow keys
Numeric keypad (. is #)
Q - three-fingered salute to engage VLM

user programmable mode, then the numeric pad or numbers: first press is

Joypads are supported.

mode in game. Note that if spinner mode is enabled it is saved in the
