In other words, it's virtually impossible to legally obtain the beta, since I doubt computer stores keep 16-year old computers in stock. But if you bought a computer around that time, it might have come with a JJ2 beta.

But yeah, it's common practice to include random games with computers. My favorite examples of this are Minesweeper and POD racing.

Yeah... this game. http://www.gog.com/game/pod_gold

POD Gold. It was freaking awesome, I loved it and it had the best music, in fact now that I found it on GOG.com I'm almost about to buy it and see if it'll run, considering the price.

That's off-topic though. The way Epic released the JJ2 betas (there's 2 versions), they weren't intended as a demo nor a shareware release, just a beta test. And there's no reason to redo a beta test when they already fixed beta bugs.
I know most of these stuff, but unfortunately I haven't bought any Intel products in the '97-'98 (Maybe because I wasn't born, duuh.) At the moment I want to fill up my collection of Jazz Jackrabbit games on my PC, and the beta is missing. Also, I like the beta HUDs more than the ones used in the actual game. I don't know why, but the beta is more appealing to me.

I had no idea he was talking about these versions when he said beta, lol.
Anyway, i sent him a message via Skype. No more talking about beta versions
Would be really cool to se the ACTUALL BETA of jj2, though.
Sorry but I didn't receive any link. Can you send it to me on primpymail@gmail.com or tell me how can I check messages from other people than the contacts? I'm dumb.
