*** WARNING: IMAGES IN THIS POST COULD B- RESIZED WITH BBCODE TO FIT STANDARD FORUM PROPORTIONS + PIXEL DIMENSIONS ***

I think that a lot of non-JJ2-based maps can offer inspiration for levels, when I am in JCS or MLLE / Angelscript,
... or even just drawing up ideas for a 2d platform level on a scrap piece of paper or in my notebook,
also random maps can provide an example for architectural blueprints, and also they naturally would help one to learn about cartography.
Leveldesign principles are highly similar to fundamentals of cartography, since they bolth are depicting areas or regions on a flat pane,
except a cartographical map at first glance might presumeably represents a 3-dimensional room or zone,
whereas a level serves as a side-scrolling type of imaginary or non-real suite of screen elements, that is more similar to an algebraic graph.

Anyway without attempting to encompass or to surmise that topic, let me share some of these "random maps for level inspiration"


-> in this image it shows how the cityscape design of having a grid-like neighborhood outline makes it look alike to the architectural blocks or rectangular tiles placed in a level or tileset template grid
-> this also makes it look like the central area is the site of the most activity due to the amount of numerals and "ART" heiroglyphs posted there
-> corners of the pictograph also show eyecandy plus also infographical symbols
-> a key / legend / list of symbol explanations on the side is the equivalent of an informative text-event within a "LVL" to explain how things work to anyone who`s confused and/or needs an introduction


-> "META" map of Australia that is often used as an example of how a map is "supposed" to work
-> noteably, the western, northern, southern, and central zones/areas/portions of Australia are specifically labeled, since it`s easy to get confused about where they`re theoretically "supposed" to be
-> "AUSTRALIA" is also clearly written at the top (exemplary) and the difference between blue sea is color-coded to make it visually discernable from on-land territory
-> the border around the picture is intact, and the grid lines can also be pointed out to show how Australia`s map is an easy example of how to learn how to read a map


-> "Map" meaning "level" from a "2d" sidescrolling platform game -- technically more like a chart (almost like a graph)
-> in this game the level is traversed via a linear route, or in other words, on a straightforward path -- so it can be visualized like a plot
By: qr-s-PL43, in: -How do Egyptian / 1337speak differ? » Clan talk 2022-06-07 01:43
That`s interesting about the "ch" and "sh" sounds, since those are some of the most annoying in Latin.
Latin famously excludes those sounds from being alphabetic letters, since most people who aren`t English/French/Spanish speakers
can`t necessarily understand the distinction between "ch" , "sh" , "xh," , "x" , "j" , "g" , etc.
That`s when you already know you have a Mediterranean / Atlantean accent, since other languages like Japanese or [/i]Sanskrit[/i] exist,
where those types of sounds aren`t predominant to the point of having like 10 different ways to write or to express a letter
that basically sounds like the exact same letter to people who learned different (other) language groups.

since I`ve installed the Cherokee language syllablery keyboard on my computer, I also noticed that:
MANY elements from 1337speak are directly incorporated (or included) as keys on the board ...
4 is included among the letters, 6 and 9 are included in the letters, 3 is included as a letter
There is another letter that looks like "Tj" that should be in the group of "djëmbé" style consonants in the list above

It`s cool since although none of this has anything exclusively to do with JJ2, it`s informative how the different languages
of different regional communitys interact within the context of a game --
-- e.g., I might say that Cherokee language (of North Carolina) is technically closer to West African language(s) than to Californian language(s)
except in JJ2 we see that Egyptian-Arabic looks more like American-Indian
(given the worldview where India and Arabia almost never interact, due to cultural differences, despite being close on the map --
-- that`s actually something that would be normally unexpected.)
((FYI, Indian Ignorance of economy greatly exaggerates the gold standard, whereas American(-istic) economy is based on Shell(s).
Arabian economy is something else, I can`t describe without being told. Egyptian economy is based on-- pluralism vs. sarcasm.))

I`ve discussed with some JJ2 players about the idea of adding "other alphabets" to JJ2, for example:
-> Cyrillic ... -> Arabic ... -> Japanese
However the odds of getting this implemented, without some research into methods of standardizing non-QWERTY keyboard input,
to make it compatible not just with a game but with its communications lines ( also / as well / also )
QWERTY is mostly geared toward Spanish also, historically the word was that QWERTY is excessively biased toward Spanish over French,
I think it would be worth taking a look at whether most players would benefit from replacing Latin alphabet with Cryllic alphabet

The delay from that accomplishment is, perhaps, a result of the fact that adding several different alphabets to the game called JJ2 is actually far more "easier said than done"
and not due to technical limitations but because the game`s community lacks anyone who has enough confidence in their handwriting legibility
that they would be willing to impose their own personal handwriting on the entire playerbase, without knowing that 30 minutes later, they`re
going to "eek" at what someone else just wrote with their handwriting.
Making it "look like" the JJ2 Latin alphabet (which is already highly -- if not completely -- Romanized)
by grabbing 2 monochrome colors, emboldening each letter in white gloss, then tracing around them with black putty ...
... it`s a time-consuming, and resource-consuming, task; but it`s not really difficult, n`or is it a complex task ...
... but that`s kind of the 2nd phase that comes after the 1st phase where someone has to admit or to claim that they have "perfect enough"
handwriting that they can make it for all of JJ2.

BTW (by the way) you can view or utilize the Cherokee language syllablery keyboard at this webpage:

This typography is sometimes used in other languages too, e.g. in Bulgarian when we use the Latin alphabet instead of our own Cyrillic alphabet, which is often the case in online games that don't support our alphabet. 15 years ago it was also not as easy as nowadays to install a phonetic Bulgarian alphabet on a computer so a lot of people used Latin letters as an alternative, sometimes replacing certain combinations with numbers.

1 = ъ (hard sign)
4 = ч (ch)
6 = ш (sh)

The words for the numbers 4 and 6 conveniently happen to start with "ch" and "sh", other than that there's no visual similarity with the actual digit symbols. 1 is a lot rarer than the other two and I have no idea where it comes from, possibly it's the similarity with Latin letter "I".

Russian "1337speak" seems to exist too and has some similarities with ours:

-How do Egyptian / 1337speak differ?

FYI (for your information):
1337speak is a computer-based typography style, where some of the latin alphabet may be replaced with base-10 digits.
Egyptian is a language or a dialect of a language spoken mostly in egypt considered close to Arabic, or sometimes Coptic / Kushite.

1337speak is thought to originate in Delaware, whereas Egyptian is thought to originate in either North Carolina or South Carolina

Bolth 1337speak and Egyptian use a typography style including bolth the latin alphabet and base-10 digits, however it`s easy to get confused by their similar appearances.
Egyptian speakers utilize base-10 digits to represent letters, syllables, or phonetic sounds that aren`t necessarily explained within the latin alphabet.
1337speak typographers tend to replace letters from the latin alphabet with similar-looking symbols from the base-10 digits.

For instance, in 1337speak...
1 = L or I
2 = Z
3 = E
4 = A
5 = S
6 = G
7 = T
8 = H
9 = P
0 = O

However, in Egyptian...
2 = ("silent" h)?
5 = (kh)?
3 = (ah)?
7 = (v)?

Personally, I think that I can understand 1337speak quite easily, however my guesswork at describing those Egyptian equivalencies, was just guesswork, not an informed statement.
I know there`s a lot of people who might be able to explain this Compare & Contrast of the 2 similar-looking but differently-formed languages/dialects within the realm of typography,
at the very least, from the perspective of having been educated with a fuller understanding of the actuality of the reading materials.

I know it`s an important distinction because 1337speak typography might look like Egyptian / Arabic language on the computer,
but they are actually not the same except for mixing in some base-10 digits intersparsed with the latin alphabet.
Obviously, and honestly quite condescendingly, Arabic characters look rather more like German cursive than the Latin alphabet, sometimes same with Nativeamerican syllablery,
but there`s no point for me to attempt to discuss this topic endlessly.
Just based on my experiences it takes more than a 1st glance to get a feel for how to distinguish between Egyptian typography and 1337speak typography,
and that can lead to mental desynchronization when it comes to trying to comprehend multiple simultaneous conversations.

« ? should esports be illegal in the confederacy ¿ »

=-> note that while one mainstream view would equate "esports" with a "video game tournament" contrarily another point of view (confederate)
would argue that a football player cannot participate in esports without getting cut from the team since in the confederacy,
all "multi-sport athletes" require explicit approval from the athletic director and have to arrange their schedule so that any "video game tournaments"
wouldn`t conflict with any SEC bowl games (this reference roughly translates to a counter-cultural term for a football game and/or rugby tournament , etc.)

- Although this argument could seem like:
... It only applies to floridians or participants or players of rugby or tackle football players in the confederacy or to their union allies
... It deprioritizes the video game and sacrifices the video game player in order to allow for tackle football or rugby to be played more safely
... It is the equivalent of asking a football player to either quit playing video games during the season or choose between sports esports or being a football player

Personally my opinion would be that I think that ultimately / eventually this logic will follow suit in Florida just based on the fact that in California there is laws to protect "esports athletes" and then Florida is going to want to convert "esports athletes" into "rugby players" ... I know it`s a "football" reference to use terminology from the { confederacy (vs) union } debate, I just want to share what I think could become a { Florida (vs) California } topic in the long run or in the future. And, I`m conflating the terms of football and rugby, which could be a confusing difference between { Australian, American, European } language versions of sporting terms. I don`t know for whom this might be a serious point of concern as it might regard Capture mode in JJ2. I`m not personally signed up for any political debates (at present), however I would like to share my perspective on the 'mentality' that might become an important topic to be aware of, since I`d prefer NOT to allow modern-day ignorance to eventually, potentially inevitably, lead to next-season`s confusions, when arguments over "why this player or that player should or shouldn`t be allowed to play or to participate" are bound to happen :;, that`s why I`m topic posting about this topic.

Jazz1 is a DOS program and cannot work windowed in Windows 3.1 as far as I can remember. Jazz1 even recommends players to start the game from DOS directly.

As for listening to music, better just download the songs and find a MOD player or tracker for Windows 3.1 and play them from there: https://www.jazz2online.com/downloads/3406/all-jazz1-music-ever-correcly-formatted-s3m-format-part-1/

Simply renaming the gamemode to ANYTHING other than "DOM" might suffice
"DOM" is the worst name for a gamemode ever, played by "Team Retard"

It can be called "Flagbug Plus" maybe after the 1.22 CTF playstyle,
when flagbug was gamebreaking.
For those who don't know, in 1.22 anytime a flagholder touched the unmasked edge of a level,
an erroneous "{Player} captured the flag" console announcement would flood the chat,
ruining the game.

1.23 fixed this "flagbug" CTF error w/ a D/L patch after the 1.22 CD β▓▒░▒▓>< release.

That is also how there got to be so many unofficial revisions of "Diamondious Warzone"...
since to play it sincerely there had to be masked tiles to wrap around all CTF level borders,
at least until 1.23

Tertiary school ideas?

->During postsecondary school, I was "'stuck'" against a rock for the longest time,
a warden of the sike dammed the flow of the stream,
& they had to take me to the hospital,
except: the hospital only had treatments for the black plague, & the prison guards never
bothered to explain their rationale for placing me under arrest, (in the past)...

->I found that this experience was `neither a satisfactory nor a sufficient alternative,`
compared to actually completing postsecondary school by graduating from college/university
w\ a degree/'diploma, (since there was never an explaination about what I was supposed to do),
in my time at postsecondary school since it was prevent--
by the lack of cross-reference; comparing hospitals' ability to treat the black plague,
& compared to prison inability to describe or explain their justification for placing me under arrest

->Cumulatively this amounts to description about police brought me to the hospital after charging
me with a crime, and the hospital couldn't explain anything about it, (since it doesn't make sense)
->Are there any #~ ideas for tertiary school; "postgraduate programs of/or employment," etc.
that wouldn't be `plagued by lack of judicial cross-referencing` compared to postsecondary school,

Thanks an instruction about the website architecture might be helpful

:|:EDIT:|:
Having a flawed user account login credential verification structure,
also prevents many other websites,
from having an equivalent level of functionality compared to here;
that's my motivation for asking such a question.
Since it could be benefecial in terms of restructuring,
to allow a similar level of functionality elsewhere

Code:

Retrospective:

---Mods checksuming for alterations in login request verification confirmation codes in packets,
---User accounts that display multiple "LRVCCP" w/ a nonmatching encryption sequence,
compared to the original "LRVCCP" are marked as spam ("redundant, overtly trivialized clues")
---The result being that multiple login requests w/ nonmatching encryption sequence(s),
get flagged to be potential fake user accounts ("login attempt for an account not registered to the user")
(this might typically invoke moderation on certain websites)
thusly a post either looks like it was a "word-search sentence-construction paragraph-emulator"
since its "LRVCCP" had an "NES" or its login form was confusingly designed, in a sense that:
---The moderators of the website get invoked by the form action from interactive content

So, that is a description of what overall problem could be solved,
regarding the pretense of the question in this thread

(How can webdesign elements from JJnet be reutilized, to allow other websites to function

-For reference, I.M.O., recent versions of the mod "plus" for JJ2,
have inarguably introduced some design flaws,
or design elements that are arguably flaws:

-> Chat lags, any line of text was making the game window freeze for a splitsecond
-> In 800x600 resolution the sprites are too small, could be enlarged to look more normal
-> Wasteful to have the app search for new downloadable versions every time it opens
-> Some levels include too many extra files to download from servers
-> Many of the custom variables (weapons, physics, visualizers, etc.) deviate from fun enjoyable gameplay
-> To have logs from a game always saved is an inexplicable or faulty allocation of prioritys

=-> The levels and its extra files could be repackaged into one file for each level
=-> Servers could be made to standardize their protocols to streamline procedures
=-> Mod download site not adhering to official guidelines or regulations about monitoring the distro
=-> Sprites could be redrawn to appear at a more proportional size at 800x600 resolution
=-> Levels designed for newer release mods aren't all compatible with an official 1998-1999 version of 1.23 or 1.24
=-> Chat could be removed to allow for more dynamic or abstract custom rules levels that utilize extrapolations upon the default engine

-=-=Fundamentally also noting there have been a plethora of "JJ2+" mods that are extremely variant
in their overall design scheme, and examining the rationale for each distro release,
there hasn't been a display of creativity in naming each subsequent release version:
-=-=Simply numbering mods like "JJ2+ 3-1" , "JJ2+ 4-3" , "JJ2+ 5-2" ...
Could be improved upon, in terms of providing a description of what is being offered objectively.
-=-=These are some things for any dev-group to consider,
when making their creation available for their target audience to acquire (product labeling)

.....It therefore gives the impression of being a game mod or a product that was released before the final product had been finalized.

The curent "plus-team" has had almost_10_years to work on this project.

Game development schedules include deadlines; so, I suggest that for the people who are still working as a part of the plus-team: it's about time to finish off with whatever you're doing now, in terms of the JJ2-plus development project; and, let the next group continue with the project, for whomever might have any "fresh, new ideas" about continueing the effort toward this particular development project.

Code:
-> JJ2-plus development seemed to have been transfferred to a differrent dev-group, or, "development group" during the timeframe of 2011-2013 ...
... so, that means if you've still been working on plus since then, it means you're now at risk of not being able to enjoy the reward of your own effort

By: Splat, in: JJ2 ladder clan comparisons » Clan talk 2021-08-06 12:54
I would like to attempt to conduct an upvalueing of this post via:
- Telling what areas of the game that i think each of these teams can or cannot improve upon, accordingly:

{{ T3 }}
=-> In this team, i think that i was learning about, and improving upon, what Attack / Ready / Defend should mean, in the context of 2v2 or 3v3 capture the flag. I think this team had a definitively solid approach to recapturing, in terms of having multiple players ready to recapture the flag, whenever hunting isn't always the primary priority.

{{ CDF }}
=-> While playing with this team, i can recall expanding upon the repourtouire of capture levels, that i would know in advance of having played a challenge to a capture-the-flag game. I knew what to expect more often, than solely when levels like "Security Breach v2" or "Distopia" or "Happy Semiconductor" would be the selection. The CTF-level, "Jungles Edge" was most likely my specialty, prior to joining any team in the decade of 2010's.
... My ideas about the playstyle from this team isn't noteworthy, i would just say that CDF playstyle is sharply balanced with a focus on the diversity among the group of players in CDF

{{ CC }}
=-> I don't think that i was really a significant contributor in this team, in terms of playing CTF. Regardless, i think that CC would excel as a team, when trying to look at the areas and realms of various levels, and finding different ways to evaluate what ammo will be optimal to invade or maintain different coordinates that could be drawn upon each level.
... Knowing what campspots are going to be available at what timeframe within a match, guessing things like; "I can give my teammate this powerup at this point in the game, instead of taking it myself, and that will allow our team a higher percentage shot at victory" and firstly picking what level will result in the highest efficacy rate of making the game worthwhile overall: -- those are some ideas about what realm CC might excel at

{{ GPW }}
=-> I think that GPW has a playstyle that could be described like, try and have one or two players shoot at the enemy-flagholder, and then have the ally-flagholder stand on the allied base. Thus i thought of GPW being a team with quick killing-potential, and always looking for the opportunity to stand ready-to-score, when carrot(s) aren't the higher priority.
... Basically the "kill-and-go-score," or the "kill-and-go-$," playstyle for future reference, of an idea for a strategical playstyle

{{ CX }}
=-> This team can focus communicatively on distributing carrots, obviously players don't want opposing players to get the carrot. So knowing the respawn-timings of crucial/critical pickups like a Full NRG, or an RF power, is actually extremely impactful when it pertains to being able to grasp knowledge of any given level. Typically, the quasi-normative player is complaining when they have the flag and a teammate without the flag takes the vital C instead of them. So that had a result of a common complaint from non-CX flagholders when a teammate would take a carrot, preventing both the enemy flagholder and the allied flagholder, from regaining full health.

|][|][|][|][| ... So, i hope that some of these thoughts about CTF gameplay could ideally be helpful to some readers;
Thanks for reading my post

"Unoriginal team names should be issued infractions"

- Although that stance would punish most, or all, of the current teams in this website:

... Look at the specific team names:

| ) CX ... represents an emoticon
|| ) VS ... describes a contest between 2 teams, parties, or individuals within the arena
||| ) CC ... a depiction of 2 waves being surfed simultaneously
|||| ) T3 ... a sporting videography trade name
||||| ) CDF ... reminiscent of the obscure video game mode called CTF

Please be more thoughtful and considerate about picking what variables will be called upon during a team-naming function.

The URL below is a link to the Waybackmachine Archive record of the EpicMega Games message board JJ2 forum during October 1997. Please feel free to take a look:

https://web.archive.org/web/19971022034736/http://www.epicgames.co.uk/wwwboard/wwwjazz2.html

Note the following rules suggestion, typed in boldtext on the page:

"As we encourage people of any age to use this service, we would appreciate it if you could refrain from using bad language in your messages."

The description of the creative vision in that sentence should probably be adhered to on JJ2 itself.

Consequentially, players should be held accountable for their behavior in JJ2:

=-> Bullying other players, especially younger players, should make you lose respect from your peers.
=-> Uncalled-for insults, regardless of your rationale, should make you lose friends and potential allies.
=-> Cruelty, and being mean in general, should devalue your own enjoyment of life and sense of well-being.

Maybe (just maybe) those would be overtly-strict punishments; alas, I'm not contributing them as ideas for punishments; rather I'm describing my observation of the cause-and-effect interactions regarding players' levels of respect and tolerance toward one another, within the JJ2 community. So, in other words, don't take this post as an advisory, it's meant moreso in the sense of a predicative evaluation.

JJ2 ladder clan comparisons
===========================

Made this retrospective comparisons list of (once-)participatory ladder clans for the sake of anyone contemplating playing or joining a squad and in want of an opinion about the following groups. Please keep in mind that these notes are specifically respective of the periodical years on the list.

((LEGEND/KEY))
[Years of my personal membership] Team clantag...
Advantages:
Disadvantages:

[2011-2012] T3...
Adv.:
=-> Regularly scheduled trainings on weekends
=-> Adequate amount of active players on roster, enough for 3v3 practice sessions, not too many to play
Dis.:
=-> Lacking in terms of lingual unification, random bursts of foul remarks, sometimes disrespectfully
=-> Avoids interacting with players not apart of the roster

[2013-2014] CDF...
Adv.:
=-> Often has trainings utilizing the proprietary server and strategical information sharing is common
=-> Expansive playerbase with many oportunities for player development
Dis.:
=-> Habitual sexual harassment, interpersonal conflicts among players
=-> Frequent roster changes inhibit the stability of active squad

[2016-2017] CC...
Adv.:
=-> Most polite culture of any team on this list
=-> The longevity of the squad allows for a heightened decree of strategical awareness and knowledge
Dis.:
=-> Players would usually rather just chat instead of play any games
=-> Rather inactive roster, considering the tendency to ignore game invites and challenges

[2018] GPW...
Adv.:
=-> Extremely determined to improve at playstyle and at game skills
=-> Allaround more lingually comprehensible, thus seemingly more welcoming in terms of dialect
Dis.:
=-> Not enough discipline regarding sexual harassment, conflicts against other teams
=-> Also excessively extreme regarding absurdly heightened competitive expectations

[2019] CX...
Adv.:
=-> Contrastingly more relaxed in terms of competitive expectations
=-> Tolerance for intellectual and academical conversation among players
Dis.:
=-> Not exactly gentle about dealing with interpersonal conflicts
=-> Lack of team practice sessions means players have to improve moreso individually than collectively

.............
Commonalities
.............

-Do not join any ladder clan unless you are prepared to deal with the inane frequency of sexual harassment.
-Any of these teams can catalyze the development of players' game skills and literacy.
-Interpersonal conflicts are unavoidable and inevitable in this realm.

...........
Differences
...........

-Certain teams have scheduled practice sessions more-or-less often than others.
-Each squad tends to specialize in the development of specific aspects of gameplay patterns.
-Regional dialects may affect a player's compatibility or incompatibility with the roster language group.

(EDIT: I'll apologize for the crassly insulting tone of these posts. I try to enjoy playing whilst helping other players learn about this game by sharing my past experiences, and, I should be able to do that without degrading others in the process.)

During the prior decade, I gradually tried to offer basically my whole life and more to BRZ, we didn't communicate much since almost 2 years now. I thought I was getting led on and dismissed cyclically, and I don't have neither reason nor rationale to disrupt other ppl's relationships anyway, that is also a disservice to myself. For reference,my oponion was not having kids, being that we are not maried and I am not paying child suport: I said that in a conversation on JJ2 some years ago. Regardless, I'm beyond ignorantly posting this, just honestly acknowledging this history, in respect to thread content — although I admit this post is unjustified, I hope that itʻs dignified.
By: Splat, in: Watching broadcasts while playing CW is cheating » Improving rules 2021-06-13 04:00
That just means the rules are flawed; it should definitely be considered cheating to watch the broadcast while playing. The rules should be designed and enforced through neutral agency. It's discriminatory to prohibit some forms of unfair play while allowing other forms of unfair play, and it's exploition to invite me to comment about a game while teams are abusing the broadcast for cheating. I'm not commenting with the pretense that participating players are listening. There has to be much more strict adherence to fairness of play, and regulations pertaining to the issue, to justify a game being broadcast at all. A fair game being broadcast for viewers is rather discernable from a showmatch being performed like a circus. At the risk of citing extreme terms, those are obviously divergent options regarding the way games are going to be played.

Yes during stopped games it could be unethically abused to some degree. Same however goes for people who 'CTO' (and rejoin as spectators), which is not possible to verify as well. My stream had about 30 seconds delay which is basically useless for cheating.
In my opinion streams are mostly there for the clanmembers that aren't playing at that time so it would be very unwise to prevent them from watching.

By: Vivando, in: Watching broadcasts while playing CW is cheating » Improving rules 2021-06-06 11:43
True, unexpected breaks during the game can potentially cause a situation where the delay does not apply. Minor, but crucial advantages could be gained in certain situations, depending on what the streamer's spectator targets are and what the commentators are commenting on, potentially revealing details like player health or exact location. In situations like that it could be potentially unethical to peek at the stream while playing the same game simultaneously. But indeed, sometimes the intentions aren't evil and one can be just curious to see how is the stream quality or is the stream crowd cheering for you, etc. These situations aren't always crystal clear and like I said, it would be impossible to control or prove anyone guilty, unless they explicitly confess such activity.
By: Anubis, in: Watching broadcasts while playing CW is cheating » Improving rules 2021-06-06 11:30
I did have it open to look at the chat after some rounds, or to spectate in rounds where I was not playing. If this is considered an issue I will just wait for the recording next time. Of course, even with a delay set, it can turn into an advantage in certain situations, for example when the game is stopped for a period longer than the delay, you would find out the enemy flagholder's position and health like that. Thanks for broadcasting and bringing the issue up.

By: Vivando, in: Watching broadcasts while playing CW is cheating » Improving rules 2021-06-06 09:30
Typically all game streams have a delay of several seconds (usually around 10) for the crowd, making it impossible to follow the game situation in real-time. Furthermore, streamers usually set an additional artificial delay for their streams (typically something like 30 seconds) to further nullify any attempts of following the game situation via their stream in order to gain an unfair advantage. I don't know if MS did use any setting like this in the stream in question, but even the stream's base delay does suffice in the case of JJ2's CTF game mode, where the game situation changes completely in a few seconds.

We have not forbidden players from watching their own game's streams in the rules either. There would be no effective way to control or prove this kind of activity anyway.

Are there any JJ2 couples that have kids already? This has been a topic of conversation on JJ2 before. Based on the rumors, it seems there is a candidate for this category from GPW, however I'm not sure if that rumor was true or false. With some players getting married, and some players having longterm relationships; I'm curious if JJ2 will become a cross-generational game, hence the thread name "Royal Families of JJ2"

Watching broadcasts while playing CW is cheating...

It was brought to my attention that some player(s?) had the broadcast open of the recent T3 vs CC game while participating...

Although I'm not a participant in ladder anymore and therefore it technically doesn't make a difference to me, being that I made the contribution of commenting for the broadcast, I will share my opinion that it's definitely cheating to watch the broadcast while playing. It makes me wonder if ladder is really meant to be a fair contest, or is it just attention seeking? This unruliness personally alienates me from being a fan of JJnet, and furthermore I don't want to contribute to a fraudulent game tournament, in the form of commenting, considering that players and teams don't make a genuine all-around effort to play fair. This ladder tournament has to prove that it's capable of consistently providing fair games for players in order for it to earn my respect.

Without pointing any (virtual) fingers at anyone specific, I'm just trying to make it clear that: watching a broadcast while playing is cheating, and I don't want to contribute to anymore fraudulent games that allow blatant cheating, and also that it's really pertainant for this tournament to prove that it's keeping the fairness of games in consideration before it gains anymore respect. Or, either that or just let ladder die(?), it's not doing me any good to spend my time and effort on commenting for a game that just results in players disregarding the fairness of the game.
By: Vivando, in: JJ2 needs more strictly moderated servers » JJ2 related 2021-05-28 22:16
I agree. It would take a lot of effort from the server owner alone to moderate chat effectively. This typically needs an active moderator team in the server to moderate the chat, like Anubis explained.

Inappropriate behavior in the game's livestream chats seems to be a rising trend too, which is sad to see.
By: Anubis, in: JJ2 needs more strictly moderated servers » JJ2 related 2021-05-28 16:50
It's not nearly as bad as 10 years ago to be honest, I remember a lot of my time as an admin of Zeal Duels included reacting to flame wars or analyzing chat logs regarding players' behaviour. However it comes to mind that, for example in Puke Nukem servers, some of the Trustee admins are inactive nowadays, for example Naps who stopped playing after recent events that happened last year. The rules about personal attacks are quite clear but there need to be more crew members available for reporting such behaviour to, maybe even a dedicated room in Puke Nukem Discord or an announcement that includes the usernames of crew members you can talk to.

JJ2 needs more strictly moderated servers...

People join servers on JJ2 to play battle and CTF and tests and spectate. Players join to play games. The average JJ2 player doesn't want to hear about your sexual emotions or your interpersonal conflicts with other players or meaningless unprovoked insults.

There is an extreme amount of childishness in this game recently. There are teenagers who seem to lack the self-discipline to be more discerning about what they say, and what they don't say. There are adults who continue to behave inapropriately, irrespective of their age.

There should be at least some servers where players are required to behave maturely, or at least attempt to do so. JJ2 has to become an environment where younger players can learn to exemplify a decree of professionalism.

In contrast, it seems mostly JJ2 is where older players will instead continue to behave recklessly and inconsiderately. If this game's internet-mode were monitored by its copyright-holders (like many modern games are) then a plethora of player behaviors would result in restrictions against using official servers, or the game would just be depreciated by the gross negligence of its players regarding the procurement of a respectful-attitude environment.

I'm not just saying this to be hateful or to place blame or anything, I really just am disapointed by the lack of moderation concerning chat on JJ2, and I think that chat in JJ2 servers could afford to be moderated much more strictly, and also that players have to learn to be more discerning about what is apropriate to say in a scenario/situation like a JJ2 server.

It may not be entirely effortless to carefully consider what might be too extremely inconsiderate to be worth saying on a JJ2 server chat. That amount of effort, is what distinguishes exemplary behavior, from intolerable behavior though.

I had compiled this list of prior ladder seasons' top teams; although the information is not verified fully correct, it should be at least enough to keep track of how many ladder seasons there have been.

Code:
S1- RA
S2- CC
(2011)
S3- GPW
(2012)
S4- CX
S5- T3*
S6- GPW
(2013)
S7- T3
(2014)
S8- T3
(2015)
S9- CX
(2016)
S10- CC*
(2017)
S11- CX
(2018)
S12- CX
(2019)
S13- CX
S14- CX*
S15- GPW
(2020)
S16- GPW
S17- GPW


Therefore it follows that the current ladder season is the 18th.

(The asterisks are nothing substantial: just denoting that the team had a particular egoist on their roster at the time, such as myself.)

According to this data, here is a statistical breakdown:

Code:
(Total ladder championships, seasons 1 through 17)

CX - 6
GPW - 5
T3 - 3
CC - 2
RA - 1

Nice one, checking the number of the season beforehand is a great idea. And of course knowing who is the referee emo What I also like to do is check historical data of the playing teams (wins vs losses, on which maps they have played against each other in the past). This was for example our first clanwar loss against t3, out of two games played in total. Past clanwars can be checked under "All clanwars" in the jj.net menu, or under "National Tournament" for past national tournaments (and we've got an archive of our own past clanwars from 2000 till 2008, before jj.net. None of those clans is active on the ladder anymore though, except for GpW).

Commenting Guide

In preparation for commenting during the recent CW, I wrote down some lines in advance, lest I would've had to improvise much more and risking saying something too dumb or too annoying, or worse being blatantly disrespectful or overtly rude...

I thought I might share what these lines were, as an example for future commenters...

- Clanwar commentary...

"Hello all & welcome to the JJnet season (??) clanwar of the teams (XYZ) & (XYZ)"

"Thanks for tuning into our broadcast of the ladder"

"Score (XYZ)"
"(Player) captures (red/blue) flag"

"(Player) takes the (up/down/left/right) carrot"

"A timeout is in effect"

"Refferee will be (name)"

"This round was (A) points (XYZ) & (B) points (XYZ)"

"The match concludes w/ an (XYZ) victory against (XYZ)"

"The broadcast stream URL is available at (https://www...)"

"The game was scheduled at (00:00) time on (unknown) day"

=-> Reference key: (?? = what ladder season is it), (XYZ = abreviation of team name), (Player = whomever), (red/blue = current color of the flag), (up/down/left/right = location of the carrot or other item on the level), (Name = refering to the ref), (A/B = number of points), (URL = link to broadcast stream), (time/day = whenever the event is scheduled)

...So maybe this commentary guide could be helpful to anyone who comments a live game, it helped me prioritize what I will say and prevent precarious improvisational speech.

For those who don't know: A "virtual private network" (VPN) hides the IP address of the client from web-connections on the internet.

This means that hackers who want to DDOSS you will be unlikely to gain information about your actual computer's online IP address.

Notably, "clanwars" (CW's) have seemingly been targets of numerous DDOSS attempts during prior JJnet ladder seasons.

If all the players and other CW participants (refs, broadcasters, etc.) had an active VPN, then maybe the hackers could refrain from attempting to DDOSS games for JJnet.

Offered by a plethora of internet servicers, there are a number of free VPN programs available. Playing JJ2 with VPN active might produce additional lag, although selecting a VPN-server within a proximity of the JJ2-server could limit this extra lag to a less substantial amount. The tradeoffs betwixt: a marginal amount of extra lag, or, the risk of a game being ruined by DDOSS...

Are the rationale for the argument offered from this thread. Please also consider that contrarily: I cannot guarantee that using VPN will prevent DDOSS; hack attempts; any other type of interference, cheating, sabatoge or malintention; or the potential for a game being crashed overall. I'm not an authority regarding ladder, nor am I an expert about internet security and potential game tournament vulnerability. Just making this wild claim, so that perhaps, any scheduled or predetermined ladder matches won't be deterred by a lack of internet security protocols regarding game connectivity.

...Just had a quick chat on JJ2's internet mode about this topic

I think that JJ2 is in a prime place for esteemed individuals to start playing this game online:

1. The plus-mod is available and obtainable quite simply. Without JJ2+plus, it's still a great time to join "vanilla" compatible servers. There are a plurality of open servers listed, whether they don't require the plus-mod, or they require the latest version to play.

2. Alot of experienced players are inactive or have quit playing. That means there's more free space in games to allow players to partake, without dealing with the stigmatism of "noob" accusation. These same players who've quit, furthermore won't be habitually cycling to the same maps/levels, and following cliche gameplay/teamchat patterns; in strategical, tactical, and teamplay terms.

3. Release of outstanding maps/levels has improved to a point there's a mulchitude of interesting and intriguing options. Games aren't limitd to the old classics anymore and many artists who've designed levels, tilesets, scripts and more will most likely apreciate players taking the time to test and try out their creations; and also adapt or evolve their works of JJ2-content in response to player feedback and mapool evaluations.

If you didn't already know, then you might check JJ2's online multiplayer mode via the New Game menu dialogue:
=-> "Party Mode" =-> "Internet Play" =-> "Join another game as client" =-> "1, 2, 3, 4... players" =->
Then input your choice of nick-nametag, fur-colours, control-schematic, etc.

To qualify this blatant advert, I'll jump the gun by sharing another opinion:
JazzJackrabbit2+ would potentially be rated for an older age of maturition than what was let on at the game's premier.
Although the official single players episodes exhibit restraint along the lines of explicit content...
The modern standard about this game on the internet, especially concerning online games with plus, is now nowhere near apropriate for kids, and rather beyond adult allegory.
I'm only bringing this to attention, in order to place a hopefully fair warning on this ploy for new players.
