New JK Multiplayer Level: Grindhouse - Kedri
File: Grindhouse
Author: f0rty_oz
Screenshots: Screenshot 1, Screenshot 2
Description: This is a medium-sized NF level based on urban architecture, with secrets, but not overdone. Grindhouse consists of two main parts: the upper building structure and the lower basement arena. Grindhouse is well-fitted with ammo for gunfighting and has ample space for sabering. Two skins are included, the infamous 40oz6 skin, accompanied by a less-known but soon to be very popular Mr. Spooky. If you want to use these skins, extract them using ConMan and implement them in the right folders and set up the appropriate files (you know the routine).
New JK Multiplayer Level: Gladiator - Kedri
File: Gladiator
Author: Daniel Yost
Screenshots: Screenshot 1, Screenshot 2
Description: This is a very small level. It takes place in an arena and a small system of corridors in which power-ups may be found. This contains four different levels, each with the same structures, but with different enemies. They consist of a normal guns level, a level with ReeYees and guns, a level with KellDragons and sabers, and a level with Gammoreans and sabers. In the guns levels, the back room contains all the powerups you could possibly want and all of the levels are 1/2 gravity. This level is simply an experiment with enemies in MP.

Happy B-Day, Slug - Juztyn
I'd like to take a few minutes out of my busy day (hah, yeah right) to wish our very own Slug a Happy Birthday, since - according to him - it's his Birthday today! I'm not sure how old he is, but I'm sure it's pretty old... for a slug. Everyone can go make fun of him by posting embarrassing stories and screenshots on the forums. (On that note, I noticed Light Staff has already posted a picture of slug he drew. *grin*)

Screenshots: Screenshot 1, Screenshot 2
Description: Level designed for about 4-8 players. Contains two areas: An open area of an old fashioned town with narrow roads and roofs you can jump on (force jump needed). The second part is a sewer area with a big pool in the middle. The level is good for saber duels, especially in the middle of the town or around the pool in the sewer part, also there are weapons : repeaterguns and thermal detonators. (I like these weapons :-) )
The Contest - Slug
Really just posting this so that I can make a new date, and post some levels. There seems to be a little bit of confusion as to when the exact deadline for the level contest is - You may turn your level in at *any* time on the 5th. This includes the early hours of the 6th - When I wake up in the morning on the 6th, and check my mail, any level in there will be counted. Any level after that point is late, and will be posted as a regular level would be.

On a different note, my birthday is tomorrow, so I may not be around to post. Oh, and I *do* expect gifts from all of you..

BFP Hoaxes - blujay
Chyren, the webmaster of JKMAG sent this in about BFP skin pack hoaxes.
It has come to our attention that there are bogus skinpacks being advertised on various sites as addons to the popular BFP2 series created by JKMAG.

These files are in NO WAY connected with JKMAG or the BFP2 series of skinpacks for JK and MotS.

JKMAG *HAS NEVER* released a BFP2.5. We *WILL NEVER* release a BFP2.5.

The files advertised as BFP2.5 contain TROJANS which will cause severe damage to your computer systems and possibly allow remote access by others to your computer whilst online. It is vital that you do not download these files, and that you report all instances of them to the proper authorities.

If you see a file anywhere that is *not* the official endorsed JKMAG BFP2 or BFP2.1 and that is not linked or mentioned on the JKMAG site, then it has nothing whatsoever to do with JKMAG, and you download it at your own risk. We take NO RESPONSIBILITY for damage to your system or files if you do so.

Currently JKMAG has NO PLANS to release a follow up to BFP2.1 in the version 2 series.

IF we do release a follow-up, it will NOT be called BFP2.5, (or 2 point anything).

IF we do, this file will ONLY be available from JKMAG first, it will NOT appear anywhere else before it appears on the JKMAG site, and the first places that hear about it will be, followed by

If you see a file anywhere other than JKMAG that claims to be an official addon to the BFP2 or BFP2.1 packs, it is a BOGUS file in violation of the JKMAG copyright on the BFP name. Report such files immediately to the ISP hosts of the site in question, and to JKMAG and any/all JK related sites.


JKMAG takes NO RESPONSIBILITY for damage incurred to your system from bogus files downloaded from unofficial sites. Always download from accredited official domains linked on JKMAG.

The files currently in circulation under the name BFP2.5 contain a TROJAN virus. Do not install them, and report all such files to the hosting sites as violations of terms of service.

Thank you for your attention.
