It's almost that time of the year again... You know the season with all the rain deers and Donald Duck, christmas lights and Rudolf and all that crap. Generally, in this time of the year we spend a little extra time at home, relaxing. This is why we thought that it's time for another contest, a Christmas contest, a relaxing time to create something. I mean after all we clearly perform better when our brains are relaxed and we are happy, so let the creativity flow!
Nothing to lose, so why not take part of this years Winter Mapping Contest?
Well, here's all you need to know to participate:
The theme this year is: Winter/Christmas.
If you want to participate, please leave a comment below.

- Start/Stop Timer required
- Run time: Between 0:45 and 1:30 Minutes
- Challenge: Easy, Average, Hard-Extreme
Map Submission Rules:
- Every mapper is allowed to submit one map only, no resubmissions are allowed (you only have one shot at success). However, there is still a posibility for the resubmission to be allowed, but you will lose the right to participate in this contest and your map will follow our normal procedure to be accepted later on.
- Compress your map and related files (bsp, sounds, models etc.) into a .rar archive
- The archive must be named like this: contest_mapname_yournickname.rar
- Submit your map via Submit Maps
1st place: 50 EUR + 2 months vip gold
2nd place: 40 EUR + 1 month vip gold
3rd place: 30 EUR + 1 month vip gold
4th place: 15 EUR + 1 month vip silver
5th place: 10 EUR + 1 month vip silver
The rest of the participants will receive 1 month vip silver no matter if their map is accepted or not and the hammer icon (official XJ mapper) for those whose maps will be accepted.
The XJ mapcheck team will handle the checking and final decision. KZ tag or custom will depend on the voting and how good the maps are.
! Maps will go through the XJ checking procedure to determine which XJ criteria they meet: custom / kz tag. !
Also if you are a to-be-mapper and you want to try your luck in this contest here are some useful mapping tutorials:

We would like to say a big THANK YOU to FlaSh <3 aloahe, FragGyver and SadPuppy for sponsoring this contest and for making it happen!
We are also aware of the rather short deadline for a mapping contest, but given the fact that the maps are more towards speed maps, short, fun to jump, perfect for a Christmas session of jumping, just right for a great ambiance and the prizes involved, we think no one has anything to lose and from our experience we strongly recommend for everyone to participate. You all have your own chance, bigger than you might think.
So with this said, let the fun begin!

This time we have a new movie starring the jumper M4kind.
We have been seeing both JapaZ and M4kind in the "Jump Movies" forum, they are both impressive and this time they just got the frontpage and I must say, hands down for the good work.
JapaZ did the forth movie of the "Jumper" saga and definitely surprassed the previous "Jumper" movies with an incredible edit, mastering a lot of effects and giving us a sick flow.
About the "Jumper" all I can say is, watch the movie and after that tell me what you think because I am still amazed with such combinations.
Hopefully we will get more movie subscriptions in the future, as we don't want this area to be neglected. Just send your movies guys if you want your 90 seconds of fame. We will publish it!
A KZ map is the highest class of climb maps, the only official tag. Mappers should use their creativity to build it, paying extra attention to the jumps (think through and test them), invest the time for the appearance of the map. It need not be extraordinary or perfect in all aspects, but a kz map should work as an entity where everything fits together and it's fun to play. When in doubt, a mapper should ask around for tips, help and suggestions from other mappers and jumpers. Experimenting a lot will also increase experience and improve both future maps and those that are in progress. Mappers should not consider submitting their first creations.
Basically, KZ maps have (more) details and ambience. Custom maps are based more on the jumps than on the looks. We are more lenient towards minor issues on custom maps. More details regarding requirements will follow in a later newspost.
In the extended newspost you can read the full Mapping Overview.
The new mapping rules and submission rules are on the new submit maps page.
Read the rest...
As promised, we are continuing our new series in an effort to clean up this community and eventually to have a safe and secure environment to keep conducting our daily activities and maybe one day to even push this community forward, into new realms.
The first edition of this new series, for some of you, probably came more or less as a shocker. We admit that regarding this department, XJ hasn't been really active, with an almost non existent progress. We said it before, we will say it again. The time has come for drastic measures, especially in this sector, where the guys who cheat their way into our community are.
For this edition, this time probably coming as no surprise for most of you, we managed to catch Nikita.
It's not without some sadness I announce this, since he was recently unbanned, saying he changed and that he wants to right all the wrongs. At least we feel at peace with ourselves, giving a new chance to someone, a last chance that is.
Also, we would like to mention Juby as well, from the previous release, being caught using something similar which gives a very big advantage during his bhops. He will also be banned.
We managed to detect something that was giving him a huge advantage while bhopping. Due to these reasons, all of his records will be deleted and he will be banned permanently from this website, not just from recording, as he was given another chance and still decided to go against his promise.
This is it for now and thank you for your attention. We will meet again soon with a new name on our list.
Until then, please enjoy the other activities we currently have. More will come in the following weeks as the frontpage is booked with new and interesting announcements.

Lately a.k.a beuhnoix
I'm thrilled to say we have finally managed to discover and set a list up, filled with cheaters that are active, as well users who used to be active here on Xtreme-Jumps.eu
I'm aware of this long lasting problem and the constant downfall of XJ due to this situation.
Most of you blamed us for not taking action and the rest mocked us for the situation. And I understand all of you, you had every right to think like that. After all, all we wanted was a safe and clean place to do what we love: to jump.
I won't even start saying how awful the gesture was of anyone who considered they should cheat their way into our community. The lack of respect and appreciation is clear.
For these reasons, I say no more! The time has come to do something about this situation!
For this, we've together put up a new series called "Cheating: Banned for life" to give each and everyone of them their last moment of "fame", because after all, after the big Unbanning Wave and By popular demand: 3 jumpers unbanned, we promised it was the last chance they will ever get. And we will for fill our promise.
(Note: The names from those lists don't automatically mean they will be banned)
So, for the first edition, we have Lolz_ a.k.a beuhnoix.
As usual, the XJ policy regarding cheats, will not offer any details whatsoever about the whole situation.
All we can say is that he got busted recently, repeating his previous act in the same manner. I guess the new chance we gave him didn't mean anything to him, as he did the same mistake twice.
In conclusion, he will be banned permanently from XJ effective immediately. Not just from demo section, but from the entire website, giving the fact he was messing with the entire community repeatedly through his actions. All of his current, as well as the old demos, will be deleted.
I hope this isn't coming as a surprise. We've warned everyone that going down this path will involve drastic measures from our side . We wanted to forgive and offer a new beginning for everyone. Those who reached our hand of help, but decided to keep following their old habits are no longer welcome within our community.
Also, for those who thought we have no experienced demo checkers, tools and that eDark is inactive, think again. Our list is long and we aren't stopping. We've just started and I'm positive our community will become a cleaner place in the future. I'm also sure that we will hit some bumps along the road, but that's part of the process.
We hope we can stay together and I'm sure that together we will become stronger!
Thanks for your attention and see you soon with a new name on our new series!
