    Welcome to the thread dedicated to the game Jazzjackrabbit 2!

    Never played this game? Then it’s time to give it a try! It’s a 2D platform game produced by Epic MegaGames. The game has a community that has updated the game very, very much. The update/patch is called JJ2+. There are also a lot of tournaments being played. This game offers a lot of fun and is more challenging than you think. Digiex is also doing a thing or two for this game. They are responsible for hosting its list servers and are also helping out by hosting the site jazzjackrabbit.net

    We will update this thread with info, events, tournaments and other things.

    Community: Jazz2online
    Clan ladder/tournaments: JJ2 Clan Ladder CTF
    How to install the patch and some more downloads: www.jazzjackrabbit.net/info

    We owe it to nimrod for hosting the listservers for JJ2 on Digiex ( list1.digiex.net:10055 and list2.digiex.net:10055 ), that makes it possible to join other's game servers online.

    Have some online gameplay!

    Looking at the above video does JJ2 now have bots?

    I must admit i think its awesome people still play JJ2. I think that i stopped playing around 2001 - 2002 ish, from what i have seen now more people play JJ2 10 years later than back when i did! It's pretty mad to think the game is still active all these years later :)

    I believe i last played a couple of years ago with Nimrod, Terbor & CurlySteve, we used to have a weekly LAN on a Thursday and ended up playing various old games, JJ2 been one of them! I personally love the survivor maps people created, and the battle maps by Blade and Blurred.

    The game itself does not have it, yet. We have a program, controlling a client (one for each bot).

    ZStats competition!

    There will be a special ZStats competition during november. The
    winner of november will win a 24/7 server powered by Zeal servers for one month.
    The server can be used as a clan server or just a normal public server of your
    choice (within certain rules).

    So it's kinda simple, play, get your pwnage and win a server!

    If you wonder what ZStats is, it's live stats from the server Zeal Alpha.

    I'm still playing JJ2 every now and then. And when I could find the time, I'd be willing to start working on my first serious JCS project. :D

    A server called "The Server" hosts Blades Battle Pack's levels frequently even though these levels are so very old already.

    AngelScript makes like a whole new game out of JJ2! I can't wait to see (and play!) what JCSers will come up with, especially for single player! :D

    Pretty awesome to still see the JJ2 community is active all these years later. I guess JJ2+ is the 1.25 everyone was talking about in the early 2000's.

    Myself and Nimrod had some JJ2 games back in University, i think he got me to install a really early version of JJ2+ back then, ill have to check out what's changed since!
