If you visited J2O in the last few hours you probably noticed that we exceeded our limit and as a result you couldn’t get to the website. We reached 20 gigabytes (the limit) so the site was put on restraint by the hosting company. I was hoping that we would not hit the limit but it’s no big deal, I’ll just pay a few dollars for extra bandwith for this month (basically just 1 and a half days left).
So, in general if you are able to save some traffic from J2O it would be appreciated. Please don’t download files multiple times for no reason or constantly refresh pages and waste bandwith.
I’m getting really tired of you people complaining that you can’t play a level if it has a password. Read this article. If you can’t figure that out, run the level using command lines. Or Jazz 2 Organizer. Or hack the level so there’s no password. I don’t care. The link I gave is probably your best option, though.
Edit: Snooz has a nice solution for this, too. Make a blank level. Set the Next Level Setting to the level you downloaded. Save and run. JJNXT.
People, be advised that normally, if you agree with one option on the poll you vote only once. That’s what sane people do, anyway.
This means that voting for the same option 97 times, like someone did with the ‘The other ones were better’ option on the bash poll, is not the wisest thing to do. ;-)
Same with voting for “:O” 372 times as someone did on the previous poll.
Consider it a rule that you should vote only once. J2Ov2 will have more protection against abuses like this.
To make this newspost still somewhat interesting, I should report that while the bash is over, an afterparty is going on on jj2 and will yet for a small while. Go out and enjoy yourselves!
The anniversary bash has ended. Thank you Nimrod, R3ptile, Shadow and all of the Bash server admins for the very great time you’ve brought us, and of course especially the rest of the community for participating and with your participation bringing everyone of us a great time.
The overabundance of news has been pretty addictive I think, so perhaps we can manage to let it flow a bit longer.
Stories about the bash can be shared in the comments here and in the JCF thread.
LRK has written up a nice little article on how to lessen your chances of being crashed by laser shields if you have Windows XP. Obviously, it won’t always save you, but hey! It’s an actual article, and that’s becoming rare these days.
Find it here.
After the succes of yesterday. With people like Roaster, Spaztic, Trafton, Haze, DrJones, Paul DM(vivid) on the show we had a great time and so i’ve have decided to continue the support and do more interviews tomorrow.
NOTE THAT THIS CHANNEL CONTAINS A GOOD DEAL OF OBJECTIONABLE CONTENT AND IS NOT SUITABLE FOR THOSE WITH BRAINS.
So at 20:00 CET / 19:00 GMT / 2:00 PM EST we are going to do another show. This show features again Jazz jackrabbit music, costum music, remixes last but not least interviews with people from the community.
Expected people: Roaster, FQuist, Labratkid, Ninja, Nimrod and many many many more
Be there !

R3ptile has compiled the music for the Bash 6 battle levels. It can be found here.
Six years ago today the shareware version of Jazz Jackrabbit 2 was released.
The Jazz2Online staff is happy that the game has lived for so long and wishes Jazz Jackrabbit 2 a happy birthday and of course hopes for many more to come.
Shadow is running a special Anniversary Bash radio day and night. To listen use a music player and the following url: http://games-2.clanbase.com:8000/listen.pls.
The coming weekend and probably also coming friday we will celebrate the sixth anniversary of the release of Jazz Jackrabbit 2. This we do by organising the annual anniversary bash on JJ2, which will be fun. We hope lots of people will show up who otherwise don’t play. If you have only one moment you can spend playing jj2 in the coming few months, spend it during bash.
There have been quite some communications problems because the organising of the bash has started quite late. The bash will begin in a few hours. It will be there from 0:00 Greenwich Mean Time tonight Thursday 16:00 PDT, 19:00 EDT) to 0:00 Greenwhich Mean Time on sunday evening (Saturday 16:00 PDT, 19:00 EDT) Nimrod will be hosting the servers for us, and a varied number of people will help him moderate.
You can get the levelpacks here. They might still have to be updated. But that’s for later. PLEASE download these if you want to play in the bash, otherwise the load of everyone downloading the levels and tilesets will be too big for the bash server to handle. This is absolutely vital for everything to go well the upcoming three days.
A music pack to go with the bash packs might be released later on.
The thread on the JCF about the bash server can be found here.
Have fun, everybody!
[EDIT] – Fixed a bug in the battle pack. Re-downloading is not very necesarry but could be a good idea.]
The bash is up now. Please do download the packs before playing!
This bash is of course being held thanks to the great efforts of Reptile, who collected the special levelpack for us, and Nimrod, who is hosting the upcoming three days. This should’ve been said so earlier but Author’s mind was occupied with setting the stuff up. Give Nimrod and Reptile a big cheer.
If the server goes down please notify one of the server admins. You can find their names at http://www.jazz2online.com/jcf/showthread.php?p=217699#post217699.
As you may already know, the Daily Carrot no longer exists. The DC was the official website for Jazz Jackrabbit 1 and 2, and while almost everything on it was outdated, JJ2 tells you to go there whenever you have a problem.
This may mean that people are more likely to search for other JJ2 pages when the one suggested doesn’t work, or it may mean the number of newbies we get will decrease. It’s hard to tell. It also may mean that Epic is redoing the site for JJ3. In any case, despite being outdated, the Daily Carrot was a good site, and it’s sad to be seeing it go.
Discussion of this is already going on in this JCF topic.
