Best playable experience?
Jazz Jackrabbit 1 7 votes (19%)
Jazz Jackrabbit 2 29 votes (80%)
Total votes: 36

Well, that’s clear, Jazz Jackrabbit 2 is still your favourite game out of the two main JJ games. I guess we should count ourselves lucky that a few days ago the playing experience got even better (or at least, I’d hope so), considering that after two and a half years there’s finally a new JJ2+ release!

There’s a huge amount of fixes and new features, so no better poll question than what’s your favourite new JJ2+ feature? For me personally it’d be the scripting support (seriously, check out the example levels), but maybe you’re a huge fan of the fireball gun or the builtin /ready support.

Definitely scripting support, even though I won’t be bothered to try things with it myself for a long time. I’ve just picked up the pace with the ‘regular’ JCS again!

I’m highly amazed by the Carrotus example level, and I can’t wait to see what impressive gameplay other JCSers will come up with! :D

The lighting effects are awfully cool, I have to admit. If nothing else it’s fascinating to go through older levels and see what their authors decided to check Illuminate Surroundings on. Pity we haven’t figured out how to get Dim Light working just yet.

Scripting support, without a doubt.

Scripting support for sure! You can add so much more to a level with scripts. You just need your imagination.

The question should have been “Favourite new JJ2+ feature after AngelScript”. In that case, I’d say the window menus (yay for voting on oneself) and after that the fireball gun.

If Scripting support wasn’t an option I would vote for New lighting events.

Too bad the AngelScript is eating RAM memory. Any level with AngelScript eats more and more RAM. It rises till it reaches the limit of your memory card. Take a look in Task Manager.

AngelScript, definately. It allows pretty much everything I’d want in a new version of JCS.

We’ve got a bugfix ready for the memory leak in AngelScript. We’re addressing a few more bugs, but I hope we can release an update soon. If there is anything you think that needs to be fixed, please take it to the JCF thread. We may be able to get it fixed quickly and make you happy again =)

Has anyone else noticed that the current Vote Percentages add up to 98%?
And on the last pole, for about a day, it added up to 99%.
