Description

It\\\‘s a conversion of diamondus from Jazz Jackrabbit 1.There are 3 Tilesets because I made Diamondus Evening And Diamindus Night.I made this diamondus conversion because I think that this level is a most representative for jj1 game and I didn\\\‘t saw on this site that someone already did this conversion.Thanks to Labratkid Now it\\\‘s 1.23! And now it\‘s upgraded, and 1.23 and even example levels are 1.23 :)

Yay! 1.23 now!!!11

Time for the review:

Firstly, the tileset is now 1.23, though the levels are still TSF made, so they show up completely blank in my jcs. I can still review the tileset like this, but it’d have been better to review the tileset by looking at it and how it is used in the example level. Oh well, I should probably give NOKA more credit for turning it into 1.23 than critisizing the fact that the levels are TSF. Back to the review:

Tiles included: Hmmm..lets see. The pine trees, the weird oval looking trees, the tree trunks with the eyes, tree branches and tree stuff, cave bg, kill rabbit posters, lots of ground and wall, trigger tiles, green high grass, plants, the ground turning into bridge, diff. signs, arrows, mushrooms, statues, sparkles, custom made poles, custom made destruct blocks, hooks and suckers, flashing arrows, foreground gems, backround stuff, the sun and cloud, waterfall stuff, two useable bg’s, jazz jackrabbit figure, mini-turtle, NOKA sign inside a television, NOW APPROACHING DIAMONDUS poster (this looks cool, I like it) and Violet CLM rules, NOKA Sucks sign, and some other stuff I missed. This is the most completest Diamondus tileset I have.
Pros: Everything.
Cons: The waterfall anim coulda been better.

Color: Looks great, the night version looks ok (it could’ove been darker, but its fine the way it is for me) and the tileset is pleasing to look at. Can’t say much more.
Pros: Fairly large color variety, 3 different versions with different colors.
Cons: for some reason I had to narrow my eyes when looking at the evening version, but it could’ove been the lighting in the room, or just my eyes

Masking: Looks ok, some of the ground is masked a bit strangely (particulary the holes in the walls, but then when you think about it they’re masked like that for the better to avoid bugs and getting stuck. I like the fact that the wall the pole is coming out of is fully masked, so you won’t “miss” the pole or accidentally put a pole event on the tile that’s half wall half pole. The devan, text, rabbits stink, jazz and checkmark signs are unmasked. I though that the rabbits stink sign would be masked so you could destroy it (since there are two animations for it, one where its not destroyed, one where it is.) Some mask messages and stuff, well done.
Pros: Good masking, some precautions taken to avoid glitches
Cons: Nothing major.

Animations: Since the rabbit stink sign isn’t an animation in this set: Sparkles, large variety of destruct blocks (yes it is large), trigger blocks, arrows (and there are a lot of them), flashy things in bg, a lot of waterfalls, and stuff. Yes, there are a lot of animations, even most of them are small, the set gets a very high mark in this area.
Pros: lots of animations, destruct block variety
Cons: Most are small

Overall: Looking over the tileset I found it 9.2ish. Color is a plus, animations is a plus, tiles included is a very high plus, but some minor things could of been improved (like the waterfalls). Still great though, the best Diamondus conversion I have.

9.2.

dx dc, do not rate the example level. Kekeke. http://www.jazz2online.com/downloads/moreinfo.php?levelid=3
:D
First some off-topic notes: you misspelled “Violet” and the font for the “approaching” text could have been better. I won’t take points for that though.

The tileset is good. In fact, I think it’s better than EvilMike’s conversion. It has everything his conversion had, plus lots of extra’s like a textrued background, text signs, JJ1 sprites, the “approaching” picture (yay!), destruct blocks, sucker tubes and well, lots more.
It basically has every tile that was in the JJ1 diamondus, I ddin’t check everything but at a glance I didn’t miss any tile. It also borrowed some tiles from the JJ2 Diamondus, like a mushroom and the arrows. It still has the JJ1 (animated) arrows though. The textured background looks quite nice and is useful, however the author didn’t forget to include a JJ1-like gradient background (that doesn’t have the same colors as in JJ1 anyway).
The layer 6+7 eyecandy is there too, however it doesn’t look allright at some places, probably something with the palette. The masking is pretty good, luckily the “rabbits stink” sign isn’t masked like in EvilMike’s conversion. I am still amazed by the amount of animations in this set, really everything that was animated in JJ1 can be animated with this tileset.
The author keeps telling you that he sucks while Violet rules, but I think he has created a JJ1 conversion that s at least as good as Violet’s conversion. You earned a 9.0 ;)

EDIT: I forgot to speak about the night/evening versions. Well, they are just as good as the “day version” ;)

EDIT 2:
JelZe, I still don’t get what your point is. I reviewed it with TSF because it didn’t work in 1.23. You mean I forgot to mention that in my review? In that case:
THIS IS TSF BAH

I could go through a long, boring, process on why this is good. But I’ll give you my answer: WOW, NICE JOB. IT LOOKS PRETTY GOOD!

I’m glad this is TSF. TSF is all I have.

Due to circumstances beyond my control I have to rewrite an entire review. ;.;

See, this tileset was TSF only (and Cazz, 1.23 sets work with TSF too!) but since it’s rebuilt in 1.23, allowing me to view it in its full glory… sob

Conversion Completeness:
Simply put: everything is there, every tile and animation you can find in JJ1 Diamondus. Even the Katana returns (One Must Fall 2097 cameo :p)

Added Extras:
A lot, as said in my previous review. I’ll just name the extra things you can find: JJ2 Diamondus arrows (no JJ2 mushroom, Flash), poles (both H and V-poles work, only vines and hooks need masks to work), destructable blocks (all types), sucker tubes, JJ2 style 3D background (which works in 8-bit, ditto for the JJ1-type sky), two JJ1 Jazz sprites, a poster with Devil Devan, a monitor with Noka on it and a Turtlette, Letni style banner (which reads: Violet CLM rules, Noka sucks. Vanity is ruling ;p), and a JJ1 style planet intro (Now approaching…) Phew
And there’s a evening and night version too (like Holidaius ., tho the night version is a bit too light) O, I seem to have missed an invisible masked block. O well :)

Masking:
Nothing wrong with the masking, even tho the signs aren’t masked unlike in JJ1 (who says they have to be, they’re just in the way anyway :p) And hidden messages in the masking is a fad nowadays: first Wisey, Violet and some others, and now him. It’s basicly a story about how rolled into Jazz Jackrabbit. :)

Verdict:
Violet, watch out! Noka has made a stunning first impression with this tileset conversion. Even though things didn’t start well (the set being TSF thing), he took the effort to convert it to 1.23, which scores very high with me. A definite download recommendation!

Wow!
This is the most complete JJ1 conversion I have ever seen!
First, the tileset has all the basic needed things for a conversion- the ground, the basic eyecandy, ect. Next, the tileset has some things I have seen in conversions before, but not in all conversions- the original JJ1 exit sign, jazz sprites, ect. Also, the tileset has some things I have never seen in a JJ1 conversion before- the ‘approaching’ screen comes to mind. The author even took the liberty of adding new tiles- sucker tubes, vines, ect., some of which actually look good! There even are two pallet-changed versions (an evening and night version). While I am not too fond of the effect, I do congradulate the author on the effort. After all that work, simply changing the tileset(s) from 1.24 to 1.23 must have been pretty easy! So, in conclusion, I have lost track of what I was saying, so I will just get it over with and give this a 9!

This tileset is one of the best conversions I ever seen. And I see it’s also your first one.

No tiles are missing. Every single tile of original Diamondus has been included, which means also the weird bird god from Birdland (who comes back in JJ2 Labrat tileset… is there any entrance to the Labrat3.j2l in Labrat2.j2l? I think not, because I haven’t found it even in the JCS). Also, lots of new tiles have been added. Vines, hooks, sucker tubes, background and even a poster with Devan, which is quite cool, except for the font. Another nifty addition is the “Now approaching” screenie. Too bad you used some other font and didn’t make any stars…

The masks are just the way they should be. Maybe even better, because actually the “Rabbits stink” sign was masked in JJ1. The new stuff is also well masked.

There is also an evening and night verion. The evening is OK, but the night rather confuses me. I still can’t make up my mind, is it too light or not? Oh well, at least there are whole three versions of this tileset. This doesn’t occur often.

Now, overall: this is a very good conversion, near to perfect. And that’s how I rate it. You can beat Violet CLM really soon… and this can be sooner than I can think, since I just noticed another conversion of yours on J2O… gotta go downloading. And reviewing, of course. Because I love collecting JJ1 conversions!

Three JJ1 diamondus tilesets! Nice!! There’s day, evening and night versions and the colors are verrrry good!!! There are a few new tiles, two types of 8.layer background, one is the JJ1, on is the classical JJ2! (Except it there’s no difference from the JJ1 version so there’s not much to say) Bravo!

i love jj1 tilesets. and now that there is day night and evening, im even more amazed! this is exactly the same as the jj1 version. I think this is better than the jj2 diamondus, this also has example lvls. the sucker tubes are new and they really blend in with the tileset. i wish the deckstar tileset was here. i can just say “THIS IS EXCELLENT, DOWNLOAD IT OR ELSE!” ;D[This review has been edited by sabaspaz]

this is an ok conversion but it drifts too far from the origianal, plus, i got stuck in the wall loads of times on that tunnel bit

i really like the tilesets, if you’re a level designer, i strongly reccomend this. even if you’re not, this is worth a look.

i have made a small battle level using the daytime tileset because i love the tileset soooooo much, please DL and review

QUALITY
Well, well, well, an actually GOOD!! conversion of diamondus! I’m totally blown aways! I notice the exemplary quality of your set [the little screens are really cool], and the fact that you made three versions of the set. That;s really neat.
TILES
Aligned very well, it wasn’t that confusing. as for the style, you got the jazz1 tiles, and got them all. Good work.
BUGGYNESS
N/A
EYE CANDY
Tons of loads of it. You certainly didn’t make a boring set, and I congratulate you on that.
PROBLEMS
Not really any. Well, well yeah. No visible problems.
SUMMARY
It passed. In my book, at least. Flying colors! Download, people!!

[Rating (2.3) clearance. 2.3 isn\‘t exactly a rating that suits a tileset that you call good. Feel free to readjust the rating. – cooba]

HUH?! How’d it get changed to 2.3? Let me fix that…
