I'm a loser. - January 12th 2001
Its true, I lost in JDC. When going for my 50th win, I lost. I’m a puny 49-1 lifetime in JDC. I lost to the Birthday boy iCeD in Diamondus Warzone, in a great CTF duel to 10, he won 10-8. Oh well everything has to come to an end one day. I’m glad it came now. :)
On a side note, iCeD and I will take on any 4 other people in a CTF game. Making it iCeD and I vs 4 other people. We bet we can even still win too. Dare to try us? :)
Articles section. - January 12th 2001
I have finally finished our articles section.(my time is sparse, y’know) It already has some articles by Ice M A N, Stripe, me and Disguise. A great thanks goes out to their will to write articles before the section was released. And a thanks goes out to Bobby for making the edit, edit comment and delete comment scripts when I was out of time.
You can comment on articles or write your own, have fun. :)
Good articles will be told about in the news. So do your best!
JJ2 news diseased and articles. - January 12th 2001
Jj2 news deceased
FoD has quit his personal site, jj2 news. But I believe noogy is going to redesign it..or so I heard. (Could be mistaken..)
Our users have submitted some very neat articles:
This link sends you to a great article by aiko, also containing an interesting comment by wakeman.
Rabbits only history
Also, I almost finished the j2o customisation. When it is finished it is going to be betatested for one day by the admins and aiko(if he wants. :P).
New Poll - January 12th 2001
Well, J2O is nearly at 1000 reviews. Would you call the J2O downloads a success story?
Of Course! The J2O downloads are better than anything Jazz has ever seen! Votes: 52 46%
I like them, but J2C did it better. Votes: 45 40%
They are fine. Votes: 12 11%
No, I dislike them. Votes: 3 3%
Total Votes: 112
About time for a new poll. I’m glad you like the downloads.
Vacation! - January 12th 2001
I finished the customisation. Go to the customize page to customize index.php in any way you want. We also have 2 new sections for index.php.
What does this mean for us admins? We(except iCeD, he has to finish the links script. :P) are going to take a break from coding j2o(Not from managing it) because all the big projects are done. We will now concentrate ourselves on little bugs and improvements. And we will start the coding on pBoard, our bulletin board project. And I am going to start coding JCS.Ref.
By the way..
The newspaz has added a nice little article on how to upgrade your 1.23 to be able to play with TSF players.
Go check it!
More news - January 12th 2001
The newspaz has made a patch to make 1.23 TSF compatible. Check out the thread here
If you don’t dare to patch jj2, you can view his article about manually doing it here.
Project 3 interactive
Shadow GPW has digged up some real good news. Project 2 is coming back as Project 3. And that could mean jj3 is going to continue but that’s not necesarrily happening. Read the original thread here
I just finished a jdc headlines panel. You can add it to index.php using the customisation.

jazz.logicware.com Back Up - January 12th 2001
I have editted gip.php, testserverlist.php and mini_gip.php to look for list.jazzjackrabbit.com cause that list server is back up and logicware isn’t. Rejoice, Epic cares or so it might seem! :)
Update: After being up for about 20 minutes, its down again. Bah.
Update: Jazz.logicware.com is back up, but list.jazzjackrabbit.com is still down. If list.jazzjackrabbit.com comes back up, please tell everyone to get the list server patch so they can play internet games.
We are back. - January 12th 2001
So..What happened to us? I will explain. The server from communitech which j2o is on, crashed. The harddisks were empty. They needed 3 days to restore it, although they said they would need 2 days at most. Well, after a few hectic days, we are back, unfortunately our database is about a week old, so we lost some levels and reviews. The scripts that were updated in those few days will be reuploaded soon. And I will make backups from now on. ;-)
So, what happened in the community while we were gone?
The JMMB has updated their look to fit december.
Godgames is having a poll: “To which game would you like a sequel?”. Surprisingly they list jazzjackrabbit 2 there..so vote. :)
(thanks to pag who told stripe, and stripe who told the community, :)
Noogy has told us that the project2’s comeback(as project3) would not get us jj3 back..
The list.jazzjackrabbit.com listservers are back! This means everyone that did not know about the jj2 community and the serverlist patch can play jj2 online again. So it will be a boost in the number of servers online. :)
They are very unstable tho so I will work on a “epic serverlists are up”
