Jazz 3D new demos

Post by LEOTCK »

Full explanation at jazz2 online thread, however the link has been removed due to the new policy.

I want you guys to have this, I don't have a lot of time and I don't even know if I'll ever return due to my RL situation right now.

link here download section

The new files are "Jazz 3" "Jazz224" "Jazz400 Calypso" "JJ3 Doc7" and "CalyUnreal", all are those new original recovered files.

There is also "Jazz Jackrabbit 3" file which is the original leak from 2007. Then there are tons of fixes for each version provided by me and "hub" map tests to see how the default hub system works with Jazz (version 224 fares well on that, only it lacks slots for specific maps because there can only be one hub save file at a time as that was the case with Unreal's hub system originally and that's unchanged). But you can still see that things remain the same if you destroy rocks before going to the tutorial level and then enter the level and back, the rocks will still be gone...

Okay so I hope you enjoy.

Came here from the J2O thread (the moderators there censor quite badly which is a shame) and am very interested in the demos, so thank you very much!

I wanted to say (perhaps a new thread would be good) that recently a new Jazz 2 Beta from E3 1997 has been unearthed by Bryan.

It is a bit of a letdown apart from Jazz 2 though. I'll send you pm.

Is the E3 1997 version recently discovered available to the public?

Not yet afaik, but I can share the link via PM for now. I'm not hosting it also because it's not related to the Unreal engine in any way, but
otherwise there is a link. I would need to talk with Bryan whether it would be fine to share it publically too.
And he's not avaiable now. There are some more things to go over and I need to wait.

Of course what could happen is someone who got the link puts it up somewhere else.

That would be great, just to make sure it doesn't disappear into oblivion.

CIA FBI COINTERPLO TRUCKS* or whatever and ILLUMINATI CARTELS are after us with bryan now, so
I guess I better post this before we get into more trouble (it isn't because of this, however).

So here the link DOWNLOAD to the beta itself, if you want the full ISO please ask by pm further (or wait till next time).


* this is a reference to an old episode of the show "Millenium" that got stuck in my memory and that's sometimes closer to the truth than we'd all like.

FULL ISO

I decided to post the download link here after all, I heard nothing from Bryan all the time and I don't want this achievement of his to get lost...

I don't know. I'm going through an emotional turmoil right now. I'll let you know if I think of something.

I appreciate the share Leo. Just a quick question though. CalyUnreal.zip has an empty folder called 'Unreal Versions'. Do you know what this folder was for or what it means? Thanks.

I knew it. I damn knew it.

I was here, thinking "hey, I haven't checked out what happens on BetaArchive in some time", while I'm supposed to find out for the company I work for which one of these hotels for sale in Barcelona would be the most profitable purchase.
And now, I run into download links for one of my favourite games as a kid. I technically still do have time for work later, but the earlier I finish it, the better... I guess I'll have to arm-wrestle procrastination once again tonight.
