Permalink New Article on CTF codes July 26th 2002

J2O has a new article, by me, on CTF codes. CTF codes are something every CTF player should use, unless they want to play an unstructured, unstrategic game. The article contains the most univerally used codes in jazz2 CTF.

Permalink JDCE Qualification July 24th 2002

Qualification over at JDCE has started, so if you signed up for JDCE, you are currently in a group. In these groups, you need to play the people who appear next to you. To communicate with people, we encourage that you use the JDCE Private Messaging which you can find at JDCE. If you are sure that you will not be able to make a duel or have vacation for a while, send a message over JDCE to EvilMike or myself (Bobby) and we can extend your time. But, have no fear since you have until 8/3 to finish the qualification matches.

Also, if you have not signed up for JDCE yet, do not worry! We are still accepting people before Saturday. So, head on over to JDCE and get your matches played as soon as you can. The faster everyone duels, the faster the tournament goes.

Permalink JDC Season 7 opens tomorrow! July 20th 2002

Season 7 will begin tomorrow (sunday), so get ready to start dueling. We will be having a new feature this season, called JDCE, and the website for it is here. All info is on the website. If you wish to participate in it, read the info and sign up for JDCE. Also, due to an error in the system, you will have to go into your user profile and change your GMT offset to what it should be. They were all reset to 7 during the testing of JDCE.

You do not need a new JDC account to participate this season. Please do not make a new one if you are already in JDC.

Permalink 1.23 to TSF patch July 18th 2002

I took down GoGi’s 1.23 to TSF patch because Arjan did not give permission for it after all unlike GoGi said. I’m sorry.

Perhaps in the future, when we get the source code, something like this will be possible.

Permalink List Server News July 13th 2002

As many of you know, the list servers have been down and very unstable the last few days. Earlier this morning I contacted Burger asking him when he expects the list servers up. As for a reply I got, “I’ll fix it shortly.” Lets hope Burger does fix it shortly. :)

Edit: The List servers are back up! Go play some JJ2 :)

And the winner is: SUPER SAIYAN!

For making the best hotel, he gets a tileset made for him by Mirrow and Disuise (not bad)!

In second place came Piccolo using the Egypt tileset, and in last came stripe using the Beach tileset (he found out about the contest a day before the level was due).
