I have a question. Is there a way to use default JJ2 splash image? I don't like the JJ2+ one (awful shading IMO and all bunnies look deranged instead of fluffy and cuddly)

I have a second question: Would it be possible to "salvage" 3D engine in JJ2 (the one used for orange games logo and which was supposed to be used for bonus levels like in JJ, but was cut) or is it too broken for it to be a possibility? If it could, I think JCS could be used to make "bonus stages" How? A special "top down" tileset and different extension (j2lb? j2bl?). Level data could be just interpreted differently in the bonus stages.

You say JJ2+ is included with the GOG version, but I'm just getting the normal game, without JJ2+, and I cannot manually install JJ2+, says it cannot patch it. What's going on, am I missing something?

The ordinary GOG installation is the LK Avalon version, which is not compatible. You need to go to the download page on GOG and download the JJ2+ installer from "Game Goodies" on the right. Or if you're using GOG Galaxy, go to The Secret Files' Settings page, enable Beta Channels, and choose the JJ2+ channel.

Ah, thanks.

By the way, what's special about the LK Avalon version?

What Violet said. It's not that different from the other version of JJ2 (or TSF), but it's internally different enough that making JJ2+ compatible with it is difficult.

AFAIK it also have few bugfixes for few of the crashes that happen in P2 version and I think, though not sure, stuck in the wall bug. Probably fixes like that make it incompatible with JJ2+.

Anyway, if I'd copy over anims.j2a from LKA version to JJ2+ (not the exe, just anims.j2a), would JJ2+ read it correctly? If so, I may have an idea how to enable Polish for JJ2+.

No, it doesn't. Really, all it does is add LK Avalon's logo to the intro movies and support for Polish.j2s, and shift around anims to add Polish letters (ą, ć, ę, ł, ń, ˇ, ś, ż, ź).

Probably.

It takes several more steps than just copying Polish.j2s into the folder. Trust me, I'm quite familiar with how this part of the game is coded, and there are issues you're not thinking of.

Well, nothink stops me from trying, right? I've replaced Italian language with copy of Polish.j2s and the main "bug" that I've noticed was the lack of Polish letters (e.g. "Wyjdź", which means "Quit" becomes "Wyjd" and so on), a thing LKA's anims.j2a solves by including these characters in the font. Maybe I'll come across some other issues, maybe not, I'll solve it one after another.

Probably the "core" of the fix would be replacement of anims.j2a with the LKA one (a thing I won't provide for the legal reasons) and then replacing one of the languages with Polish.j2s (which I won't provide as well for the legal reasons). This would be directed towards Polish people anyway, so I don't think so they'd be bothered that they need to select, e.g. "italiano" for Polish language. Again, there may be more issues, there may be less, I'll cross these bridges as I get there.

You're in luck, the next Plus release will support an arbitrary (well, probably not arbitrary) number of language files, including the Polish one, if everything works out.

Nice. So I'll just need to see about that anims.j2a replacement, unless you will implement Polish letters as well in Plus. Then it's just about putting Polish.j2s from LK Avalon version and making GOG do it by default.

Please tell me, if you'll be adding Polish letters as well so I won't double the work and waste my time with anims.j2a replacement.

Are you sure? I remember doing several things as a kid that according to the wiki would crash P2 version of JJ2 and I had LKA one. For example I remember pepper spray being my favorite weapon which I've used like crazy. There's a crash bug associated with it and LKA version never crashed because of excessive use of pepper spray.
