There's nothing quite like the rush of running, falling, jumping and crawling your way toward the release switch whilst under fire from rockets, railguns and lasers... then jabbing that switch and releasing all your team mates! Then finally watching as they all come running out of the open doors and beat the other team to death with Laser Cleavers! There's never a dull moment in JB, you're either fighting to stay alive, fighting to release your team mates, or fighting to escape from jail!

SPECIAL NOTE ABOUT JBO_BRIDGE:
Panthers map, jbo_bridge is the first Jailbreak map to implement objectives, cleverly created using the I/O system in Hammer. The objectives appear onscreen as you complete them, but if you are unclear, the Jails are inactive until you complete the objectives listed below:
1. Destroy the antenna to disable power to the shields in the mines.
2. Destroy the exposed power couplings in the mines to disable the core shield.
3. Destroy the exposed core to power up your own Jails and start capturing the enemy.
Be careful to defend your own vulnerable objectives too, to get an advantage over the enemy.
Unzip the map pack to the following folder:
Make sure that all the map BSP files end up in the following directory:
This is the first Official Map Pack for Jailbreak: Source, containing 14 new maps, created by various member of our community. All the maps are absolutely fantastic, and although some of them aren't as pretty as others, they all have incredible gameplay or have a uniqueness to them not found in other maps. Enjoy playing them!
We'll be setting up a Custom Map Server which will be running all the maps 24/7, and suggesting certain maps to other server owners too.
In the coming months a second map pack will be coming out! Even more maps for Jailbreak! Look out for it, if all goes well it will include the following:
jb_traininggrounds - Head
jb_jailforts - Dogmeat
jb_canyon - Jayjack
jb_valisk - BurninWater
jb_asklepion - Damatman
jb_anime - IZaNaGI
