Hi there folks

Post by reaper » 24 Dec 2016, 05:02

Not sure if anyone still around is old enough or even played the same version, nevermind gametype as myself so I'll give a brief introduction and a few things I'd like to share, if indeed some of those files are not available for download. It mostly consists of demos(clan matches, tournament matches, 1v1 matches, and others), maps, skins etc. Mostly 1.04. I suspect at least a a large chunk of demos, maybe a few maps and skins may no longer be available on the net and may in fact only be useful for a stroll down memory lane for a good olde dose of nostalgia).

I'm here looking for anyone who may have been involved in the competitive EU (Although we did have a few US players) 1.04 TFFA scene from anywhere between 2004-2011. If you played in some of the tournaments of that time period you might know me from Golden Hilt Season 2, JK2Leagues community based tournaments and a few other smaller events throughout those years. If so please get in touch as I'm trying to get contact details for a few old timers.

The other side of the coin is I have a JK2 folder that is 7.32GB in size, 800mb of which is demos dating from the first year of JK2 til around 2011. Around 2GB of maps (including a few private maps and beta maps that were unreleased), can't be sure because skins are mixed amongst them and they are spread out over different folders within gamedata for lots of different mods from that time period. It may be that there is already or has been a collective project to collect as much JK2 files as possible and my inactivity has no bearing on the files already available for public download but if anyone out here is interested and wants the files I have please let me know where and I will either upload them to a place of your choice, or if you would like them uploaded to a simple file sharing website for download so you can add them to other files. I, and a few others put a few months of hard effort into collecting as much as we possibly could before old team websites or tournament sites or just file sharing websites went down along with the only download links for many of the files.

Anyway I will be around on discord, #jk2 on irc and here intermittently for at least a few weeks, so as I say, if you need to contact me or are interested in any files I may have please let me know. Shame for them to be wasting away on my HDD untouched and unloved for 5 or so odd years.

MrWonko from JKA made a backup of JK2files shortly before it was closed, so you should be able to find most old maps and such there:

Welcome to the forum ^_^

If you give us a few names of players you remember we can tell you if they still play or not :D

Well that's some good news to be honest. I think I may have a few maps unavailable from JK2files but it would only be a few, some unreleased , private and some beta maps. Either way if someone could point me in the direction of the most up-to-date index for JK2 Files, or all sites hosting files, I'll be happy to go through them and add any missing, or even earlier versions of other uploads.

I think most of the demos I have, probably the majority, where never on any mass public download sites. Mostly because they are 1.04 Competitive TFFA which was quite a small community within itself(even if it was one of the bigger 1.04 gametypes.) But JK2files never really had much of a demo section for 1.04 so most demos were uploaded to clan sites or competition sites which are long since dead.

Hey there, recognise the name from days long gone by. There was a few of you guys, I think that bronZe and Xandy might even have been involved?(I'd love to get new contact details for those 2 if you have any) Yeah we had some genuine fun times on JK2L. I think it had a lot to do with the fact we liked randomise teams or play events that didn't necessarily have automatic winners(The FFA events always ended up with different winners). I'd personally like to set something up again, even a multi-version effort, but I would need dedicated help and support, especially now, to make it successful.

How does 1.04 fair these days? Much in the same way of the TFFA of old, or are most of the older regular saber only TFFA players still around? I would still be willing to try sort something out either way but some of the older players have a lot of experience at organising these gigs, and if I'm honest I'd need the help to sort something out. If you've seen hav0c, PinGu, dq, or Marlboro around recently please PM any contact details for them as I'd really like to organise a proper event for those left playing, and as I say, multi-version is entirely open to me.

I still have the demos from JK2L events so hopefully I can get them uploaded and you can see yourself from 6 years ago :lol:

Ah yes, team had eight players.. (Hav0c, PinGu, Xandy, BronZe, ra1Zen, c/|tz, Ach1lles, AirWave)
Most can be reached on facebook. Hav0c and PinGu disappeared completely - I'll send pm with contact info!
