Nimrod has arranged that the long-defunct list.jazzjackrabbit.com (which the game defaults to) redirects to the current listserver by speaking with Warren Schultz, Systems Administrator of Epic Games. What this means is that JJ2 online multiplayer should now effectively be playable, “out-of-the-box”, no longer needing to be patched with the current listserver information.
In addition to greatly simplifying the process of playing JJ2 over the internet, this may also make the game attract new players. You also shouldn’t have to worry about updating your registry, since the listserver itself hasn’t changed at all.
We should all thank Warren Schultz for doing this for us, and Nimrod, who was able to contact him and ask him to do it.
Update: Warren says “No problem. It should be noted that Cliff and Tim were instrumental in making sure that this happened :)”
