UTzone.de Jailbreak Rock II

The first Jailbreak evening after quite a while was real fun. Now that the llamas learned the basics of Jailbreak, there will be another event.

The UTzone.de Jailbreak Rock II evening will be held on February 20, starting at 20:00 CET (that's 19:00 UTC or 1pm EST) on the UTzone.de Jailbreak server. If you want to play with as few downloads as possible between the matches, make sure you have Jailbreak 2004c, our two map packs and the individual maps available at UTzone.de. There will be TeamSpeak again, but like last time it will be mostly populated by Germans.

UTzone.de JailBreak Rock

This may be on quite short notice, but tonight starting at 20:00 CET (19:00 UTC, 1pm EST) UTzone.de is hosting a Jailbreak evening on their Jailbreak 2004 server. So patch up to Jailbreak 2004c if you haven't done that already, make sure you have our map packs installed and join us. (There will be a TeamSpeak 3 server, but expect lots of German talk.)

Jailbreak 2004c (Service Pack 3) is finally available

Told you so. We finally managed to dig up the Jailbreak 2004c update from under a huge pile of dust and made it available for download. That was about time, as a few maps already depended on this update and as a result never were released to the public either.

Here's an overview of the changes and new features in Jailbreak 2004c:

  • Additional maps bundled with the installer: JB-Aswan-v2 (replacing JB-Aswan), JB-Fragtion2-v2, JB-RimeValley, and JB-TheDecks.
  • Fixes for bugs or inconveniences on several existing maps. The maps themselves remain unchanged, but some gameplay changes are applied when they are played under JB2004c.
  • New add-ons: Arena Lockdown, Overtime Lockdown, Arena Spoils, Jail Fight Tally (now bundled with the installer), and Radar
  • Italian and Spanish text translations, next to German and French, which were already supported before.
  • New executions. Some of these are added to existing maps via the map fixes mentioned above, so don't be surprised if your favorite map doesn't push you through deadly lasers or set you on fire right away - a much more interesting death might await you!
  • Lots of new goodies for mappers who want to create Jailbreak maps. Thanks to Crusha K.Rool, some of the more generic ones are also available to other game types via his Ultimate Mapping Tools package.
  • Tons of bug fixes. You will find a complete list in Jailbreak2004c.txt in the UT2004\Help folder after installing.

We're getting things done - eventually

It has been over eight years (not counting map releases) since the last update to Jailbreak 2004. After releasing the Editor's Choice Edition, we've been teasing you for a few years with various screenshots and news posts about features being worked at. We never actually followed up with a release, though, and then even shifted focus to the UT3 incarnation of Jailbreak.

But none of the work we did so far is lost. After yearly failed attempts to release Jailbreak 2004c (aka. Service Pack 3), we are currently blowing the dust off our UT2004 copies and getting ready for a final test run. If everything goes well, we should soon be able to bring you the upgrade that will help you survive the next eight years. (Or it'll just help get over the idle time until the next version of UT3 Jailbreak is released. As I said: We're getting things done - eventually.)
