Hey, I was playing JJ2 not that long ago and there were lots of servers but no players. I’m wondering, is there a secret Jazz Jackrabbit Illuminati Server or is Jazz Jackrabbit just a dead game no one plays anymore.

And you could win £25! That’s £1 more than the previous contest of mine. WOW! There’s also a second place prize of £12.50, providing another entry is good quality enough. The max size is 320×480 pixels (150 tiles).
The deadline is the 11th of April 2015
So get your tileset making whatevers going!
Fancy the chance to have your own level feature in an ODT event in a future round? Now you can! We are going to be hosting a contest to design a level suitable for play in an ODT event.
While that means that the level probably shouldn’t be too large for duelling, there’s no upper or lower size limit so feel free to decide on a suitable size yourself. The gamemode should be Battle, with a primary focus on gameplay and fun factor, be relatively easy to learn and should preferably discourage camping. Gimmicks are allowed but are generally not advisable; this includes gameplay elements such as death pits, excessive use of warps and/or sucker tubes. Eyecandy is not important – as long the level is easy on the eyes and there aren’t any distracting elements then the level should be fine in this aspect.
Unlike last season’s contest, there will be a generous point bonus awarded for the creator of the winning entry, with potential prizes for runners up too depending on the amount of entries this contest receives. That means that if you’re playing to win, it may be worth finding some spare time to make a level for this contest! The deadline is Saturday 21st February; in other words the end of Round 3. The winning entry will then be played in a subsequent round.
Some of us might already have heard about Omri Lahav and his Jazz Jackrabbit 2 soundtrack remixes. He recently published on Youtube his guitar remix of Medieval Jam. Give it a shot!
Since I got so many negative votes on both the JCForums and on JJ.net, the week won’t happen. It’s to stay safe, it’s a good idea that there was a poll. Hopefully, we will think of something more fun, and which will not affect other people’s personal lives.
~Well, i would at least like to thank you for putting the ‘Name week’ stuff on the front page. ~

Me and Invisible had this idea to orginise a ‘Play JJ2 With Your Real Name’ week (well it was originaly supposed to be a day, but i figured it wouldn’t be that fun anyway).
The week will be officaly started from Monday, 26th of January (according to the Gregorian calendar) to 1st of February, 2015
The week will be changed to some other close date next year, and so on.
What you have to do is basicly replace your JJ2 nickname with your real name before entering a server. i-)
brothers I have an idea!
What do you say to all new games jazz ?

As a first sentence, let me wish every Jazzer a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year with Jazz Jackrabbit!
Maybe you saw a game called JJ3DX, created by Louis K in the downloads. JJ2 Hungary started a walkthrough about it (don’t worry about the language, it hasn’t got commentary).
So I would like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas again and enjoy the holiday season! :)
