Jazz 3D Enhanced Patch ceases development

JCF Thread

We post enough about JJ2+ on this site that it’s a shame that JazzGruff’s JJ3 patch, aka “The Unofficial Jazz 3 Patch” or “The Jazz 3D Enhanced Patch,” doesn’t get more coverage. Doubly a shame now that the project has just shut down.

The patch promises all the traditional features you’d expect from such a work, ranging from lots of (sometimes subtle) bug fixes up to improved physics, camera, graphics, difficulty, and so on. Visit the JCF thread for the most recent download, as well as more screenshots and a couple of gameplay videos. JazzGruff says that other people are free to take this and continue to improve on it in the future, to make JJ3 better still, so long as they credit him for his existing work.

EDIT: If you’ve been having troubles downloading it, JazzGruff just posted an updated package that should set you right.

I think he left this for good. Unreal Engine 1 is way too outdated for a 3D engine and even he updated the graphics a bit, the original levels still look ugly in my opinion. Hopefully he’ll return with something decent, like 2.5D Jazz made in Unity? :)

Aww this is bad. I loved the direction this patch was going in.

Though I got to agree with wiivn on the outdated Unreal engine. I’m not too technical myself, but I do know that actions taken for granted with UE3 such as importing models/meshes etc, could be a pain in UE1.

So whoever want to pick up this project might want to become a debugging guru first, you’ll need it. :P

I think about it to pick up the project but i have learn so many things about the Unrealscript. Perhaps as said wiivn (just a little) old the engine and the Unity engine is difficult for developing. :)
