Jazz Jackrabbit 2 Plus (JJ2+) adds countless features and bug fixes to both Single Player and Multiplayer gameplay within JJ2, and is used almost universally by most serious players. It has much better network code than the original game, adding console commands to online games, fixing most major game-crashing errors and connection problems, allowing permitted clients to log in as "remote administrators" in someone else's server and control the gameplay, and adding several new multiplayer gamemodes. It additionally fixes or enhances many of the events in the game, and allows level designers far more power than in regular JJ2 through the addition of an easy-to-use scripting language. JJ2+ takes everything great about JJ2 and adds so much more on top of it; it is truly a must-download.
Jazz Jackrabbit 2 Plus updates for the first time in two and a half years. Introduces a new enemy, a new old gun, tab completion for console commands, scripting support for level designers, and much more.

Following the transferal of JJ2+ development by BlurredD in July 2012 to the 1.25 Council, a new version of JJ2+ has been released for the first time in roughly two and a half years. Historically JJ2+ has been very much focused on adding features to online gameplay, with comparatively little attention spared for level design options or single player mode; the new developers come from somewhat different backgrounds, and so improvements are now spread much more evenly throughout the JJ2 experience. We look forward to future releases once we've all had a few days to cool off and browse through incoming bug reports, which we certainly hope will be few in number, and in the meantime, we eagerly hope to see players and level designers taking full advantage of all the new options and opportunities available to them.
A small sample of some of the new features, bug fixes, and other changes introduced in this latest JJ2+ revision:
As ever, you can go to the JJ2+ home thread for further information and discussion, or check out the online readme for the full list of the latest changes. Thanks for your patience over the last two and a half years; keep on Jazzing!
