New Atari Jaguar Game: Elansar

Elansar is a new game for Atari Jaguar. It was released on other platforms before and got ported to the Atari Jaguar 4MB cartridge format. Luckily I’ve got one out of 75 copies. It came enclosed in an universal game case (ironically all kinds of retro cartridges fit well, except Atari Jaguar’s…) with a small manual booklet and a sticker:

To have a full control experience I’m going to build the mouse adapter by Matthias Domin as soon as a new D-Sub15 connector (VGA) arrives. Unfortunately all spare connectors I’ve got have one or more important pins missing.

New Arrivals: Wireless Speed Wheel – DSi – Roland U-110

Some new/old stuff that was in the mail this week:

Nintendo e-Reader 6PIN Protection Cover and Urban Champion

Today I got two additions for my Nintendo e-Reader collection:

The first one is a small piece of plastic, known as AGB-016 or 6PIN Protection Cover. It is still being sold in the Nintendo Online Shop Update: It was sold in the Nintendo Online Shop until 2014. The page can still be accessed with the WayBack Machine.
It protects the Game Boy Advance SP screen when an e-Reader+ or an e-Reader with a link cable port is plugged in. Actually, it is a very useful little accessory with the only drawback that it has to be fixed permanently on the e-Reader. The e-Reader then won’t fit anymore in the original Game Boy Advance.
