Go to2021-09-07It's about time to start wraping thingz up Who would be in this next group?

If you know C++ and would like to work on JJ2+, feel free to contact me.
Go to2021-09-07It's about time to start wraping thingz up 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


,,``We can spend about 5 more minutes talking about [[anti-radar]] and then after that we're going to have to move onto [[fixing and reducing lag]] until we run out of time soon,,``
-- Generic Teachers' Phrasebook (fake quote)
Go to2021-08-06JJ2 ladder clan comparisons 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
Go to2021-08-06Unoriginal team names should be issued infractions "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.

Go to2021-06-27JJ2 needs more strictly moderated servers 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.

===========================

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.)
Go to2021-06-13Royal Families of JJ2 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.
Go to2021-06-13Watching broadcasts while playing CW is cheating 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.
Go to2021-06-06Watching broadcasts while playing CW is cheating 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.
Go to2021-06-06Royal Families of JJ2 Jenny's parents played JJ2 as well, so JJ2 is cross-generationial already.
Go to2021-06-06Royal Families of JJ2 Indeed Anubis, was gonna say that emo
Go to2021-06-06Watching broadcasts while playing CW is cheating 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.
Go to2021-06-06Watching broadcasts while playing CW is cheating 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.
Go to2021-06-06Royal Families of JJ2 Grytolle and Leen both CC
Go to2021-06-06Watching broadcasts while playing CW is cheating 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. For more details about our anti-cheating policy, see: https://jazzjackrabbit.net/index.php?league=1&season=1&op=articles&articleFunction=showArticle&articleId=55
Go to2021-06-06Royal Families of JJ2 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"
Go to2021-06-06Watching broadcasts while playing CW is cheating 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.
Go to2021-05-28JJ2 needs more strictly moderated servers 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.
Go to2021-05-28JJ2 needs more strictly moderated servers 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.
Go to2021-05-21JJ2 needs more strictly moderated servers 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.

Thanks for taking the time to read my opinion and consider my message // Sorry again about the forum spam
Go to2021-05-20Commenting Guide 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
Go to2021-05-19Commenting Guide 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).
Go to2021-05-18Commenting Guide 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.
Go to2021-05-12VPN should be required in CW's VPN should be required in CW's

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.

Go to2021-04-24New players wanted -Sorry for spam. (Posted too much on forums.)

...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.

(Please feel free to reply to this thread, if you should agree or disagree, or have any response)
Go to2021-03-24Watching people drown This question is about letting people drown in their own mistakes.

For a hyperbolic illustrative example, just imagine this scenario.

Some people are standing over a frozen lake. Let three of these people be called X, Y, and Z.

For some arbitrary reason, a fight starts among the 3 of them.

X and Y continue fighting violently and maliciously while Z tries to avoid or escape the brawl. Unsurprisingly, during the violence, X and Y fall into the frozen lake, and are then incapable of climbing out to safety. Z, feeling betrayed by the onset of violence and threatened by involvement within the fight, neglects to offer any help to the others, contending that if they didn't want to drown in a frozen lake, then they shouldn't have put themselves in harm's way while risking the safety of the people around them.

So my question would be, is it smart for Z to just ignore them, based upon the notion that if X and Y were saved, they could just repeatedly get Z into trouble? Or is it smarter for Z to try and save them, although risking a furtherance of danger and harm?

In other words — if someone is being selfdestructive in order to smite you: should you try to help them in lieu of their goal of hurting you, or should you just observe their selfdestructive behavior and conclude that the consequences of their actions are their own punishment enough that there's no reason to intervene?
Go to2021-03-07¿How to play CtF for rabbits? Q: Jazz Jackrabbit 2's Capture the Flag gamemode is too complicated. How do you play CtF?

A: A score in CTF is made by joining either blue or red team, stealing the flag of the opposing color's team from their base, and preventing the enemy team from stealing the ally flag, then bringing the enemy flag to the ally base. A score can only be made when the ally flag is still at the ally base. If you bring the enemy flag to your base, while an enemy player has possession of your flag, there will not be a score. CTF by default is played with 3 maximum HP. If the JJ2 gamefiles aren't patched to version 1.23 or more, then do not touch the border of the level, unless there is a wall of masked tiles there.

Go to2021-02-18What are some of the best maps that never were in mappool? Hollow of the Haunted is a level that after playtesting, I thought it could be good for ladder mappool. I recommend considering it at the next mappool update.

Energy blast is a special movement ability, in the form of a custom weapon. The presence of energy blast in the map makes it unique among CTF levels, but the energy blast exists with an ammo limitation that keeps the level in balance, between a gimmick-level emphasizing charging around the arena with no observation of gravity, and a repetition of a traditional theme along with a flow-functional layout.

It's one that I'd like to play more extensively sometime. Evaluating the balance between sides is a concern beyond just first impression.

Go to2021-02-17What are some of the best maps that never were in mappool? I think there are plenty of them, here are 3:

- Mulch

This tiny level lacks a layout, and for ammo you only get one random powerup on spawn. It's mindless and chaotic and has been a favorite during those moments where no one wanted to strategize, they just wanted to spam powered up weapons, and run back and forth.

- n00bed! v2

This CTF level is symmetrically balanced and adequately sized, however compared to mappool levels its layout is far more simplistic. That simplicity may be its appeal, since the layout is so easily understood and memorized.

- Marshland of Evil

A common find in public games, this level features a complicated asymmetrical layout and is large enough for many players. It may just be too large for ladder matches, though, and maybe not balanced enough. The variety of paths around the map, and the choice of a great tileset, make it fun to play.

  • played that game before myself. Reminds me of "The Bread Book," a book available in HTML format, that Gustaf told me about:

    https://thebreadbook.org/conquestofbread.html

    Also wonder if the game's hero is an actual bread who confused a hardware-box for a bread-box and was thusly computed into the game, or, alternatively, a character who was late for the filming of the animated adventure movie, "Brave Little Toaster," that coincidentally was pictured by Hyperion and is watchable at this URL:

    Go to2020-06-20Drama over the Ladder (JJ2 fanfic)
    Quote:
    Foreword: Thanks to JJnet admins for approving my new account! This is a JJ2 fanfic and a repost since I posted this elsewhere last year ... This is just a random story taking place on Carrotus, Kyshal is the character K'shal just spelled differently from my old fanfic The Final Insult 2.


    YEAR: 2019
    POPULATION: 16 out of 20 maximum possible occupants inside the war tavern building

    Kyshal entered the war tavern, with his friend Luxroth. They sat down on stools, and a bartender walked up to them, asking them if they would like to buy something to drink.

    "Hi, how are you? Can I please get a ginger ale mixed with beet juice mixed with carrot juice?" said Kyshal.

    The bartender rabbit said "Sure, that is $1. And how about you?" he looked at Luxroth.

    "Can I just get lemon juice? asked Luxroth.

    "Ok, that is also $1," said the bartender.

    Luxroth and Kyshal got the drinks, drank them, paid and thanked the war tavern people; then, they went outside. The war tavern building was right next to a road on the side of a mountain. On the other side of the road was looking up at a mountainous cliff, and behind the building was looking down over the side of a mountainous cliff. Luxroth thought if they went out the back entrance of the war tavern, they would fall off a cliff. However if they crossed the road, they would be forced to go rock climbing.

    They went to the parking lot in front of the building, and got on their hoverboards. "Do you want another cigarette?" Luxroth offered to Kyshal. He handed him a cigarette; they lit them and smoked.

    Kyshal lolled, "haha, do you think that team Carrotus will beat team Diamondius in turtle shell soccer next week?"

    Luxroth replied after a few seconds, "Yes, Carrotus has the best shooters. Diamondius has only one player who knows how to play. Carrotus has Exlawlidumbth, Mortabibluxonium, and three of the best goalkeepers. We will definitely beat Diamondius, dude. The rest of Diamondius are noobs, besides their flying lizard."

    After hearing that, Kyshal laughed harder and smiled. "Alright, do you want to go down to Bhutanical Garden and listen to music?"

    "Yeah, man, definitely," Luxroth said. "I have the new [album] Diamondus Warzone Blues by DJ Weapon 0. We could listen to that."

    They put on the first song, as they hoverboarded back down the road to eventually reach a grassy field in the middle of Mountaintown. There, they put their music playing speaker device, onto a table and sat on an attached bench, to continue listening.

    I got a lot of grass, but the cows like to eat it
    The monkeys like to cut it, and the ants like to treat it
    I'm a jackrabbit, don't imply that I'm a rabbit
    Or my rabbit girlfriend is gonna whack you with a gadget
    When you got grass, you like to smoke you some flowers
    Like to drink a lot of potions, and complain about your problems

    If you got coins, you gotta spend a lot of moneys
    Gotta buy some power ups, gotta buy some new TVs
    My rabbit girlfriend, she likes to watch anime
    Watch cartoons all day, then she comes to me to say
    All I ever do is sit on the computer and play
    So I'm like, let's go outside and watch the grass grow

    Kyshal said, "these lyrics are confounding, but the guitar and drums are so cool," as the song continued. But then all of a sudden, it started raining, so they put the speaker away and left. Luxroth and Kyshal departed, walking in opposite directions to their respective homes. Walking down the street, Luxroth remembered the sound of that one song, hoping to listen to the rest of the album later. He thought about the possibility of playing turtle shell soccer later after it stopped raining. Maybe that would be later on in the afternoon, or maybe it would be tomorrow.

    'Who knew?' he thought. 'Who could possibly predict the time at which it would stop raining? The weather mutator, I guess' he guessed. He slightly laughed internally at the point of having to consider so hard where he could find a weather forecast, but found self-redemption upon realizing he knew the answer within less than one millisecond of thinking of his question to himself.

    Then when he was about to open the door to his house, he realized -- he had forgotten his hoverboard in the grass! He remembered seeing Luxroth carry his away from the field, and realized his own hoverboard must still be in the grass. So, he turned around to go get it. It was annoying to have to walk all the way back because he forgot something.

    But when he looked to the table where they had been sitting, his hoverboard was missing! He knew it had to have moved to somewhere, somehow, at some point in time since they had left earlier. The thought sank into his head, that he might have lost his hoverboard. But as he looked around, he saw it! It was sitting on top of a ladder, some meters from the table. Kyshal looked at it on top of the ladder, and wondered how he could get it down. If he had his hoverboard, he could just fly up and grab it, but the problem was his hoverboard was out of reach already.

    Luckily, there was a tree nearby, so Kyshal just climbed the tree, walked out across a tree branch to get closer to the top of the ladder, and grabbed the hoverboard, reaching from the side of the tree branch, through the sky and bringing the hoverboard over to him with his front paws. Then he jumped from the branch onto the hoverboard, and floated down back to the grass.

    Go to2020-06-16JJ1 sound effect samples Hi, I want to post about my samplepack of JJ1 sound effects

    FYI, these are the sound effects for no-sound-card mode, in other words they are the sound effects for if you have no speaker attached to your computer, that IIRC the CPU can make on its own with no other sound device

    The samplepack is in (".ITI") format that would mean Impulse Tracker Instrument

    I am not sure if neccessarry to upload a version in (".WAV") format because I am not sure if it'll be useful to anyone ((however you can extract individual (".WAV") files just load the (".ITI") file in Modplug Tracker and view samples derived from the instrument))

    Anyway you can use them in Modplug Tracker just make an (".IT") module file

    https://gumroad.com/krsplat#SUWi

    ...

    Tangentially, while I'm on the topic of samples also on the page (please disregard my repurposing the UOI clantag as an advert for "Ultimate Online Instruments" that is not the point ATM)

    The mouse-drawn "vMv" sample on the page was also drawn by mouse in MPT (modplug tracker)

    https://gumroad.com/krsplat#GNywx

    And with this sample I have also an instrumental song called "D415YR4D4R" it can be found at the below URL

    https://m3rcuryqu4k3.bandcamp.com/track/splatkalm-daizyr4d4r-1980-uce-2

    (The beat is in no way shape or form a cheating tool nor a custom radar designed for JJ2)

    ...

    In summation it is downloadable for the cost of several megabytes just enter "0" in the price AFAIK

    The sound effect samples are neither labeled nor orderly

    I am not sure also if you would like explaination about how to use the samplepack as an Impulse Tracker Instrument in Modplug Tracker

    You can also just hear a (¿sample?) demonstration of the samplepack on the webpage without downloading

    ...

    (The audio file cannot be freely transferred without the input of a "0" so if you do not have a "0" on your keyboard you probably have a problem)
