List Server Redirected!

Posted:
27 Apr 2006 at 02:01

Nimrod has arranged that the long-defunct list.jazzjackrabbit.com (which the game defaults to) redirects to the current listserver by speaking with Warren Schultz, Systems Administrator of Epic Games. What this means is that JJ2 online multiplayer should now effectively be playable, “out-of-the-box”, no longer needing to be patched with the current listserver information.

In addition to greatly simplifying the process of playing JJ2 over the internet, this may also make the game attract new players. You also shouldn’t have to worry about updating your registry, since the listserver itself hasn’t changed at all.

We should all thank Warren Schultz for doing this for us, and Nimrod, who was able to contact him and ask him to do it.

Update: Warren says “No problem. It should be noted that Cliff and Tim were instrumental in making sure that this happened :)”

Just noticed, today there were quite a few 1.20 servers.

Good news indeed, but I tihnk it’s too late.
What should my listserver thingies say in the registry now then?

@Michael:
Have you tried to actually connect with JJ2? You don’t need to change any registry settings at all.

Hey, that’s pretty cool.

MSB3000 on 28 Apr 2006 at 21:47

This is the best ever.

cooba on 28 Apr 2006 at 22:11

We just got 20 guests browsing J2O. I’m not sure if this is related or not, but still awesome.

cooba on 28 Apr 2006 at 22:17

Nevermind. They’re searchbots.

NovaStar on 29 Apr 2006 at 00:23

Nice. Now my friends can play WITHOUT me having to come over and get them all of the patches. Except the 1.23 patch is still necessary.

spejsboi on 29 Apr 2006 at 07:48

lots of newcomers now

NovaStar on 29 Apr 2006 at 10:58

Indeed. There’s a few 1.20 servers… lucky this computer has 1.20 still on it.
goes off to patch different Jazz2 folder 1.23
