Downloads should work fine again now.
A Blast from the Past - December 16th 2013
Source: JCF thread
Most of you have probably heard of the story of how Jazz came to be. But what most of you probably haven’t seen are CliffyB’s original doodles of the “Rambo Rabbit” that became the character we all know and love. Luckily, that is exactly what Slaz has come across:
Head over to the JCF for more Jazz sketches, plus an interview with CliffyB to accompany them.
Due to server outage the site was unavailable for the past few days. It's back now (obviously). Sorry!

Well, that’s clear! Looks like our alternate universe Funk FauvedeBourgogne is ready to go. But wait, he needs a motive! Someone has kidnapped the beautiful Princess of the Galactic Rabbits, Princess… Princess… what was her name again?
Jazz 3D Enhanced Patch ceases development - November 2nd 2013
Source: JCF Thread
We post enough about JJ2+ on this site that it’s a shame that JazzGruff’s JJ3 patch, aka “The Unofficial Jazz 3 Patch” or “The Jazz 3D Enhanced Patch,” doesn’t get more coverage. Doubly a shame now that the project has just shut down.
The patch promises all the traditional features you’d expect from such a work, ranging from lots of (sometimes subtle) bug fixes up to improved physics, camera, graphics, difficulty, and so on. Visit the JCF thread for the most recent download, as well as more screenshots and a couple of gameplay videos. JazzGruff says that other people are free to take this and continue to improve on it in the future, to make JJ3 better still, so long as they credit him for his existing work.
EDIT: If you’ve been having troubles downloading it, JazzGruff just posted an updated package that should set you right.
JJ2+ update is out! - October 30th 2013
Source: JCF thread
At last, after a week and a half, most of the annoying bugs have been removed (hopefully)!
Major bugfixes include:
- Crashing with an Access Violation when loading a level in Single Player mode, if Player 1 is unconfigured.
- Unspectating players getting kicked or banned for invalid shield use.
- Players getting “nudged” following a health change.
Some new features are:
- A greatly improved spam kicker
- A self kill command
- Separate controls for mouse and keyboard
- Switching weapons with the mouse wheel

Jazz Jackrabbit levels are best taken in small doses.
On to more pressing matters. Arjan and Cliff obviously envisioned Jazz as a fan of Jazz music. I mean, it’s right there in his name! But what if Jazz hadn’t been an option? What if Arjan really hated saxophones? What then??? How would they have named the hero of the game we all love? Let’s find out.
