Alrighty. Thanks for the answers!

It's been made quite clear that you aren't going to get a download link from here; it's against the rules.

Primpy, there are many, many places to ask that aren't here. There are some forums that are just more lax about this kind of thing, and there are forums that are exactly about this kind of thing. Choose one, and try asking there.

Problem solved, i gave him the link for version 1.00g.
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.

The only published (read: leaked) thing that most closely resembles the concept of a 'beta' would be 1.10o. It more closely resembles the final product than 1.00g and 1.00h did, but is far glitchier and didn't have a publisher determined.

Still, JJ2's development was supposedly kind of rushed, and considering the problems with the 1.00 versions I doubt the devs had interesting inhouse builds that would be nice for us to see. The real intresting beta's are for games that have been in 'development hell' which were redone almost completely. Think about LameDuke for Duke Nukem 3D, or some Nintendo games reviewed by Beta64.

Primpy, the beta versions of JJ2 came with some PCs (maybe Gateway PCs or maybe not) and the only official way to get the beta versions of JJ2 is buy a PC manufactured and released from the 1998 era that happens to still be on sale.

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.

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.

Dunno if this is the right thread to ask this, but, is it possible to ADD more animations into the library using Jazz Sprite Dynamite?

I think they had some 'inhouse builts', Look at the interview with Nick Standler

Quote:Initially, between each “scene” there was to be a 3D time warp sequence in which Jazz and Devan were to battle with each other until they reached the next destination. Arjan actually coded a 3D sequence for it which looked pretty damned cool. We just couldn’t make it work.

That probably says enough. The 3D sequence would likely be an EWJ 'Andy Astroids' style effect. I'd sure like to see it though if Nick made additional spriting for it, yet I doubt the idea ever came that far.

Erm, sorry for bothering you again Jelly Jam but I can't make an account on the website you sent me to. I don't receive the activation message. Can you give me a direct link or somewhere I can download it easier, without requiring an account? (such as Mediafire)
