Dr. Eggman has posted an article describing how to decompile .j2b files (Jazz2‘s unique music format). This includes C++ sourcecode, therefore it is highly technical. There isn’t any method to convert the decompiled data to another tracker format just yet.
You can comment in the article itself or discuss it in this JCF thread.

It suddenly occured to me that I was trying to have polls be a monthly thing. Only overshot by a few days. Here’s the results for last time around:
Spaz Jackrabbit – 34 Votes (29%)

Eva Earlong – 10 Votes (9%)
Zoe Cottontail – 1 Votes (1%)
Devan Shell – 15 Votes (13%)
Razz a ma Tazz – 9 Votes (8%)
Bilsy – 1 Votes (1%)
Zoonik the Hedgehog – 6 Votes (5%)
Trafton – 30 Votes (26%)
(Other) – 3 Votes (3%)
Total votes: 116
A new poll is up already. I have a feeling the last option will win, though.
This month’s featured download is Coral Coves by FireSworD. Crysilis World by Dr. Eggman and Toxic and Lavapolis by NOKA also came close to getting the feature, so you might want to give those a download as well.
Treasure hunt is a well-liked gametype that lacks lots of good levels as opposed to CTF and battle. Coral Coves might be the best treasure hunt level I have ever played. It takes place in a series of underwater maze-liked tunnels filled with tons of gems, enough to make this level work well even with 16 players. There aren’t just gems here, though. You’ll have to avoid enemies while collecting gems. If you get hurt by one, you won’t be able to collect gems temporarilly. Of course, if you don’t want there to be enemies, you can host the lite version, but what fun is that?
As you can see from the screenshot included, the eyecandy here is great. There isn’t a dull place in the level.
If you like treasure hunt, you should definitely download this. If you don’t like treasure hunt, you should probably download it anyway, because you might start liking it after you play this level.
Eat your lima beans, Johnny.
