‘JJ2 Add-on for mIRC’ allows you to easily and quickly host and join internet JJ2 servers, play single player levels, change player 1 definitions and manage levels and tilesets.
Almost 4 years later, I’m submitting a new version of the JJ2 Add-on for mIRC.This version includes very significant improvements over version 3.5, namely
I submit this as a new download and not an update to the old download entry — as I did between versions 2.51 and 3.5 — because: a) experience tells no one notices if you submit an update b) all the comments and ratings are so old (> 5 years) they no longer reflect the current state.
The source code for j2linfo.dll is at this location.
[Oct 26th 2007: Uploaded Cataphract’s screenshots on J2O instead. ~cooba]
The files registry.dll, MDX.DLL and views.mdx may return a false positive in certain antivirus scanners. Ignore when it happens. (more in the upload readme)
This program’s best feature would be the level browser, which is awesome, and so far to my knowledge the only of its kind. The rest doesn’t impress me too much. I can even think of a few things I dislike:
- Use of registry.dll, using com-snippets would have made things better, since that wouldn’t have triggered Norton for me
- Listing jj2 servers via mirc-sockets. The server will get delisted if mirc closes
- Not following the policy of not giving out IPs of private servers
- The functionality for bypassing server passwords
- S.I. botname selection. Just make it use a proper “query-packet”… this feature will only serve to annoy players, “rofloloasjhajkshaksj has joined the game/left the game”- Unnecessary functionality (however I might be wrong about those)
Cataphract does however make good use of dialog extensions, and as I said before, the level browser is awesome. I’ve only eyed through the msl-code, and it looks good, however with some double checks.
So in all, if this was just the level browser, I would have given it a 10 immediatly (even if level copying doesn’t seem to work here, from version to version that is). To me, though, the menu is too cluttered, and configuring via a menu rather than via a dialog really sucks because it closes as soon as you’ve made a change. But, since it all is GNU-licensed or freelier, masse thank you, Cataphract!
This gets an 7.5, and a download recommendation in the sense of “you should give it a try”.
EDIT: This script ONLY uses the socket functions to: 1) Retrieve the server list. 2) List a server. 3) Check for updates. 4) Download the updates. 5) Get the list server statistics.
What about the UDP functionality?
A really great tool for hosting and joining JJ2 servers.
This widely expands over XJJ2 or JazzTool (does anyone even use those anymore), and by being a “mere” mIRC addon it’s even more convienient. Hosting servers has never been so easy before (too bad I no longer can host), and joining via the addon’s GIP is fast and slick. The player profile is something I wanted to be implemented in JazzEd for a long while now (I admit I haven’t used the addon until now).
There’s basically no thing which can’t be configured with this utility. If there was an option to run Carrotade additionally with the server (without having to run it manually), it would be even better. Aside from that, the possibilites are endless, and this program so far has been flawless. All I really need now is an antivirus with a working ignore function :p.
EDIT: A link to the #jazzjackrabbit channel would have been a nice addition too. Same with #jdc perhaps.
This add-on is great! I’ll list some Pros.
Co-op and Race serve options!
Freezing at level browser (!!!)
Hmm… How do i explain this… ALMOST NONE OF THE BUTTONS WILL STAY WHOLE (!!!!!!!!!)
Level browser is Great! You can see the level and the tileset! Rating: 25
Server info, is ++! You can all of the players on that server, the level name and the fur! (It sometimes doesn’t work…) Rating: 17
Co-op and race options, no more having to pull out controller just to get co-op! Its rather small but deserves a 20!
Shortcuts: Really handy, but it could be hard for new mIRC users. (ex. run “C:\Games\Jazz\jazz2.exe”) It IS great, I give it a 25.
Refresh list: Needs a little bit adjusting to just it perfect but still great. 20.
Freezing at the level browser: Not too bad but you could use some timers to regulate it? -10
Almost none of the buttons fit! a list: the < button Pallette “CL guide” Pallette dialog, etc. THIS IS BAD! -20!!!
25 + 17 + 20 + 25 + 20 _107_ - 10 - 20 -7 80/100.
EDIT: Eww, can’t host co-op w/o adding MEDIUM to the level name?!?!? -7
This is a wierd thing. It’s taking me a long time to find MIRC [this may just be because I’m not actively searching for it], but from what I can gather and what I’ve heard, this sounds like a pretty good program. All the files appear to be there, it just appears to need MIRC. I would suggest doing a google search for it, as I will do when I’m not so busy. I am withholding my better opinion until I dl MIRC.
Because of the false positive, I cannot open the zip folder. My Antivirus won’t let me. I sure wish I could use it. It sounds like a great program.
cant you do something to fix the false positive detection?
im scared when virus detects does avg show it up too?
You are a hacker!!
BUT this is file JJ2.add-on.v4.0/registry.dll is virus!!
Eat your lima beans, Johnny.
