  1. Dear friends,


    If you are old JSII member than this might be interested for you... if not than probably you can skip it.


    Like many of you I find JSII closing down to be a huge loss for Atari Jaguar community. My registration number on JSII was 49 and before JSII I remember JS and other even older forums and mail lists. I do understand and fully support Jay decision to close down JSII, especially when I’ve found out about the background of the whole situation. In this place and moment I would like to thank Jay Smith for creating JSII and keeping with all of us for such a long time. THANK YOU JAY!


    JSII has been unique place that will always have a place in my heart. However missing JSII and not being able to even browse the forums any longer has left me as other JSII member without great place we all loved and had great fun. As a true Jag fan, although one who did not have time for it recently (which turns out to be a good thing after all since I’ve skipped all that nonsense drama), I can’t just agree that there will not be a place like JSII any longer. Therefore I’ve created Jaguar64.eu forums – I’ve been hosting this domain for number of years already trying to put it into good use and I think finally it is high time to exploit it. I don’t want to do it alone, but with all of Jag fans and members of JSII who are now scattered around different forums and communities.


    JSII members: I give you http://jaguar64.eu forums and I would like to see our JSII community to unite again under new name. I honestly invite you all there! Let’s stop crying over what is done and move forward to not blew away what Jay build for us for years.


    Jaguar64.eu besides small number of forums comes already with few exciting features:


    * Email boxes from @jaguar64.eu – if you like to have this address there is already a poll about it. Current hosting options allow me to do it so why not take advantage of it.


    * Jaguar64.eu on github – yes, we have a github account already starting to be populated. Please help us with it but also if you have a great Jag project and you are looking for an option to host it, this is the place to do it hopefully. If you are new to git don’t worry, Jagdev forum contains all the instructions you will need.


    Also if you feel we need another wiki there is a poll going on over the forum and it can be setup with just few clicks.


    Since I want Jaguar64.eu to be community effort run by true and real Jag fans I’m sure there are plenty of other options and opportunities we can exploit. Just let me know about your ideas!

    I’m sorry for this long post – in short: if you are missing JSII and looking for a new place that could be a JSII replacement in a not very distant future please give a chance to Jagaur64.eu. Together we can rebuild JSII community!


    Best Regards


  2. Both are available on SF.net and neither has been used at this time.


    Has anyone used CVS and Subversion? I'd be interested in examples of what someone liked for one over the other...

    If you are using Windows than both have very cool client: TortoiseCVS and TortoiseSVN. SVN treats code line like tokens while CVS can operate only on whole lines. Also commit operation works differently in CVS and SVN. Basically SVN is newer solution. Take a look at project homepage:


  3. Hello MegaData!

    Depending on the number of team-members and their type of jobs in the project you should

    consider to use a Concurrent Versions System (CVS) to share the project-files (sources, data-files),

    and a simple mailing-list can be sufficient to hold the contact between the team-members (and helps to archive the correspondence). A Yahoogroup can also be used to some degree (can handle mail-traffic and store files).


    Best regards


    Personally I'd go for subversion and I think both systems are provided by sourceforge where Native Spirit page is.

  4. :rolleyes:

    This was a funny point with Lynx, but as Atari bought the Lyx to Epyx, they also bought the dev tools. As Lynx conceptors worked on Amiga conception, they used Amiga to create dev tools for Lynx... Pretty logic. But it seems that Atari removed every Commodore or Amiga stickers on computer before sending then to Lynx dev team :lol:

    I mentioned Lynx on purpose because I think this is great story. Anyway I'm still looking for some one with dev experience on Falcon ;) I already got some useful tips on JSII but I hope there are more developers who used to use this setup.

  5. Ok so now we know that pprot is working on Falcon too ;) I'll try to work on it a bit more. My PC I've used to do dev work failed so I was looking for quick fix and Falcon looked promising. It's amazing that Atari/Brainstorm failed with support of new protocol for Alpine for Falcon. Oh well - they used A2000 to develop on Lynx so maybe I should not be surprised after all.
