New Patch For JBB: Javabowl 8.5 Client

Skijunkie has made another point release for JBB. Go get it from the downloads page here.

  • Clone cheer to create a td sound. Split cheer and td to different sound files so that sound pack creators can use different sounds if they want to. Official build sounds will remain the same just cloned to seperate files.

  • You can now have multiple sound files per sound (up to 10 total per sound).

  • Fix old hyp gaze for divx. Was using ag -1 as target instead of ag + 1.

  • Up default spec limit to 50. Requires you to delete options.nfo and let it recreate or do a brand new install.

  • Added try catch blocks around the decal code to make sure it isn't crashing the game.

  • Re-do save file names so that non-letter characters are changed to an "_".

  • Fixed random generator always using the same seed for stand-a-lone games.

New Patch For JBB: Javabowl 8.4 Client

This one has been out for a little while but there you go. Go get it from the downloads page here.

  • Fixed the NO HANDS problem where players with temporary NO HANDS would retain the skill during the next kickoff.

  • Per LRB you can no longer give DUH, WHERE AM I to a player with BIG GUY or BONE HEAD.

  • Maybe something else. ;-)

Dropping the Pretence: Game Reports a Thing of the Past

Well, I have decided to give up on the whole game reports idea. At least not for every game. Instead, if I write game reports, I will post them in the After Action Reports forum, and I encourage other to do the same. A new link to the After Action Reports forum has been added in the left hand navigation bar, like so:

This news page will be reserved for important league news, rules changes, JBB changes, etc.

New Patch For JBB: Javabowl 8.3 Client

Ok so I am a little late off the gun on this one. Nevertheless, looks yummy, and it's official... so use it! You can snag it from the downloads page here.

  • Added support for sound packs. Now by default all the original sounds must be in a directory named "original" under the "sound" folder. This patch includes the sounds in the directory, and a full install for 8.3 has been repacked with the proper directory structure. If sounds stop working for you make sure you have an "original" directory under sounds that contains all the wav files that used to be directly under sounds. See the readme.txt file for more details.

  • Revert GET THE REF back to old rules per official LRB 4.0 release.

  • Fixed I AM THE GREATEST problem where eligible players is 11 and you are not allowed to setup 10 players.
