JELP 2004 is history!

Those who've made it to Luetzel had three days full of fun & laughter, coffee & alcohol and captures & releases while playing Jailbreak and defending the beer! For the second time in history we had a weekend one will never forget for life and I am sure it's just a matter of time until the JELP 2005 comes along. Thanks go out to all those, who have helped making this weekend such a blast!

Presenting the Add-ons page

Sexmachine is busy compiling all the photographs from last weekend's Jailbreak Euro Lan Party 2004 in Germany to show you, so I have a moment to tell you about Planet Jailbreak's new Add-ons download page.

Those of you who clicked the "download more add-ons" button within the game interface will have found a page with not much on it, but now it features the final version of NoJailKill and the latest development version of Spoils of Victory. Enjoy!

Three, two, one - JELP!

The news moose has woken up again to the sound of a distant rumbling, shouting, laughter, and numerous offensive taunts which are unsuitable for a public website like this. That could only mean one thing: The Jailbreak Euro Lan Party 2004 is on the horizon, so close in fact that it starts today!

The JELP is a large get-together of many of Jailbreak's greatest, and not quite so, players from the far corners of Europe. This year sees no fewer than 27 Jailbreakers descend on Luetzel, near Frankfurt, in Germany for a whole weekend in the same house.
Of course, most of the time is spent playing the classic UT Jailbreak, but this year will be the first chance for a proper LAN of Jailbreak 2004.There will be blood, there will be sweat and there will be tears of happiness throughout the party. Preparations are frantically underway, from organising the people to organising the food and drink. There are also plans for a barbeque, so let's hope that the weather is sunny and warm.

This year is particularly unique in that Mychaeel, the lead coder of Jailbreak, will be popping in at some point for a few games. A chance to meet our community creator should not be passed off lightly. We'll be able to see how well the coder can play his own game too!

Unfortunately there will be no internet link for players outside of the LAN to connect via, but stats logging will be enabled all the time, and we'll see who comes out on top at the end! If you're not sure what goes on at a JELP, then don't fret since plenty of photos will be taken there, many of them probably requiring censoring, for your viewing pleasure. The stats and photos will be made available as soon as possible after this weekend, so hang around until the next news post for them!

And in the meantime, once the noise has died down, the moose may be able to get back to his beauty sleep.

21 maps for the 21st Century!

Even though Jailbreak 2004 has been released two months ago, Jailbreak III for UnrealTournament is still popular. And even though we have made you believe that the Team K9 PowerPack might have been the final map pack for Jailbreak III we now have to admit that we've fooled you somehow.

Just in time for the Jailbreak Euro Lan Party 2004 we are pleased to release the fourth and fifth Custom Map Pack for Jailbreak III today. These packs include 21 maps of all kind, some brand-new and unique, others 'old' but enhanced and some conversions. Prepare to see the Narayan Moons collide, escape the tomb of Pharao Phimosis IV, destroy the objectives in an Urban Operation or survive the powers of the northern goddess in Ragnar.

Download the Custom Map Pack #4 and the Custom Map Pack #5 and meet the makers over at our Jailbreak Server as these maps are in 'heavy rotation' at the moment.
