EDIT: OMG PAGE CLAIM!!!

I have said it once, I'll say it again.

We do not do anything illegal. Txl Kill, go make your own mod if ya want Jazz characters. I am not gonna actually do that unless I want Epic to sue me.

I'm having ideas that the character shall be called

"Max Mazzrabbit ~ The Epic Story." [A blue rabbit? I dunno]

I've got 3Ds max now... so all I gotta do is get this download moving. Heh.

So BIG WOOP! MM2K is going well!

[Max Mazzrabbit 2000]

Thanks all for your co-operation, please do not discuss anything illegal for us to do. WE WON'T DO IT.

[Although Jazz 3 does sound good. Lol]

Max Mazrabbit? Puh-lease. If you are going to create a character, at least you need to name it uniqely. Besides, Mazrabbit doesn't make sense.

I am not exactly fond of heroes names Max. It brings me to think of those melodramatic robot transformer commercials with the hyperactive shouting kids who act like plastic toys are ultra-powerful.

or wait,list of useable furrys:
Pho
Fawriel
acid
MoonBlaze
Noogy( Well,maybe)
Hail
Skulg
Gummy(does she have one?)
Ducky
N0B0DY

Mmm,was that all the furrys we have here?

No. . The rest of the community would argue etc.

Make original names.

Piccolo, which bit of ORIGINAL do you not understand? :P

And I'm making the game. I'm thinking, I want ideas from fellow Jazzers.

Oh, haven't been here in a while, or playing Jazz 2. I guess college makes me quite busy!

Anyhow, I suggested this before I think, and I like the idea. I don't know how testy Epic is, but hey, if they won't make Jazz 3 than we must, right? Why do they hate the green rabbit? Maybe his last game didn't do so well, but that could have been for several reasons. Why do they just think people hate the combo of cute and violence? Besides, Jazz needs MORE violence I think.

I like the idea, but please do me a favour: also make it compatible with regular Unreal, because I don't have UT. And seriously, how much more powerful is UT than Unreal? Or you could make it compatible with Elite Force, since I also have that, but I don't know how easy that is. I just want atleast a Jazz model with taunts, but a whole game would totally rule.

It IS risky though. But what if it becomes kind of like CounterStrike and then Epic puts it out there to make money! And then Jazz has a future again! Well, if you ask me, that sounds like it's worth the risk of getting sued! Well, not really.

I can't go on the internet for a long time... Only on weekends, soz... Mum grounded me ;P etc.. Long story...

Anyway, we'll have probably 2 or 3 or 4 major characters, some NPCs... but like UT, extra modelled characters..

I still think we should make that poll so the most popular guys here who actually have a character will get some.
I mean,if Bid for Power was an UT mod,you can make tons of chars,it even had Puypuy!

I don't think making it into a popularity contest would be any good for the community. Besides, we could basically just put in every DM member and JCF/J2O admin and we would have the poll results.

I'd go for non-existing characters, and the ability to expand the list of characters by being able to skin your own character...

This is an interesting idea.

If we were to have skins, we wouldn't have the seemingly looming fights over "I think Tyf should be in JJ3!" or "No, EvilMike and Bobbu deserve spots!"

However, my big question is, what kind of new special attacks could they have? After all, there's only so much attacks possible that would look smooth. Adding more rabbits would gradually start to be less and less creative. We'll likely just start slapping on names: Gazz, Hazz, Kazz, Lazz, etc. It just wouldn't be in the spirit of Jazz Jackrabbit.

And what about a mixture of both?
Think about this:
A PhoenixWing style cat
A Scary Sarry style Winged cat.
A rabbit.(Yeah,we have lots of those)
A weasel(my style,bleh)
A N0B0DY style Echnida
...
And so on.
As long as we can give them new colours and such,everybody is happy,right?

PS:Think about gender as well,eh!

I am sure that with the combined skills of the JazzCF we could create a UT2003 mod based on Jazz. Renaming the characters, changing the weapons and creating new models based on the Jazz crew (eg Turtles, Jackrabbits, etc) would become legal. Also, has anyone actually asked epic at all. Who knows...they may let you use the rights. They may enjoy the publicity and overall recognition of Jazz.

I want to get into making mods, and get into the gaming industry, but at the current time I don't have the knowledge or software to make 3D characters, or such things. What I was going to try to do was take the Jazz from the original Jazz Jackrabbit from the '3D' bonus stages, and add the additional angles and animations necessary to make Jazz playable in Duke Nukem 3D.

Ofcourse until I set up my PC to be dual-booted (because I have Windows XP), I can no longer even PLAY Jazz 1 or Duke 3D let alone try to learn how to make Jazz playable in it.

My one suggestion to this project: if you don't want to make the mod for Unreal or Elite Force, atleast make it a fangame that runs on it's own so you don't need to own the shootemup to play it. There are SO MANY FPS out there, and you really want your hard work to be enjoyed by as many Jazz fans as possible.

If you don't want Epic up your ***, than just start with making a Jazz model for FPS with taunts, and make Jazz look really like him - really study Nick Stadler's art to learn how Jazz looks. Start small before you really get involved with the whole mod. Start with Jazz, make him perfect, then do Spaz, etc.

I love the idea. I hope you will do it. I only wish I could help... the only way I can help right now is 2D drawings. If you need any 2D art, I'm a real good drawer. I'm a rookie animator, only finished one animation class in college with great marks, but that's the intro course. Let me know if I can be of help to you in the drawing department. Ofcourse, I'm still practicing Jazz trying to get good at him. He still looks too much like 'my' Jazz than Nick's.

On the issue of legal or not...

They will find anyone responsible, and they will take your money. Companies can do that. And if you think they can't do anything to you, because you "didn't know it was illegal", you will get screwed over anyway, because "ignorance is no excuse". You can't steal something, get caught and use "I didn't know it was illegal to steal" as an excuse. In this case, it's JUST like accepting stolen goods. Not worth it. And don't get complacent just because you're on a dial-up. That's the stupidest thing I've ever heard, they're not trying to get to your computer, they're getting to YOU, and they do that via your ISP.

Characters? Make entirely new ones. New names and everything. Do NOT base the characters on people from this community. You'll only start fights. If you put one character from this community into the game, you have to put them all. There are too many. So just come up with original ones.

I say UT. You don't need the power of a newer engine for such a game. UT will do just fine.

And if you get around to doing this, make it cel-shaded. Keep Jazz as much the way it is already as you can.

I'm still beneath in the soil

Discard your clothes
Let loose you hair
We're intertwined forever and have always been
Say the word
And I'll depart
Upon your lips dwells nothing but the meaning of my cause

And so comes the dark
Vibrant as ever before
Flowers already withered
In this endless winter of souls
