OK, this article will be short, but it will tell you how to make Jazz2 Internet Shortcuts, with *.j2i expansion. I don’t know are they available in 1.23, because I have TSF, but TSF’ers will maybe find something useful in it.
OK, first, open notepad. The only thing you have to write, is the IP of your favourite JJ2 server. You can check player’s IP by pressing F9 twice in game. Anyway, for example, we will use the IP of JDC events here, so we will be able to get there faster. Write the IP in notepad, so it will look like this (this is only an example, throught):
And that’s really all! Now save the file as JDC.j2i, or how you want to name it. When you will know that server is on, click the icon twice, and you will join the server as 1 player with latest configuration, and as default team in CTF.
The cool thing in Jazz2 Internet Shotcuts is that they can be positioned everywhere in your HDD. For example, on desktop. The bad thing is that if you have more than one Jazz2 installed (for example, I have TSF and CC), it will open from the latest installed.
Maybe there are some values to enter in the j2i file, like account of players, team etc., but because I’m not a programist, I don’t know how. Maybe even source code is needed for this…
But you know everything what you must know to create j2i files. Maybe you won’t see anything useful here – but you can never know…
Eat your lima beans, Johnny.
