Sorry about yesterdays down time... but now that we're up and running again I thought I would submit some cheerful news for you all!
Last weeks challenge was open to anyone who was willing to participate on the map cg_cbblebhop
The person who beat the record this week was... ScooteR!
Great job! His time on the map was 1:19! <--0.o Great work! Sadly he didn't do both shortcuts so was not eligible for the full 10$. However his work has won him 5$! The demo will be released with the next demo release. GL Thopa xD...

Also, if your taking part in the weekly challenge don't forget to send me your demos and submit them to XJ! Its almost at an end!
we have to admit that the latest release wasn't our best one. I'm not talking about the maps, they are great imo, it's more the way they were released.
Therfore we had a meeting and discussed a better solution for such big "bug sc" problems in the future:
The mapcheck progress will take 2 weeks in the future:
- The first week will be used for voting, just as before, so the mapper is still going to know the result after the first week.
- The second week will be used for expanded maptesting sessions. We'd be glad to see other talented guys join these sessions and help us finding >bug< shortcuts, mapbugs/crashes and stuff like that. Two people already accepted and are going to help us in the future: sj and ndR. If you are skilled in finding bugs/shortcuts and want to help us, too, just write a comment or be active in IRC, cause we'll commonly pick such people at first.
Remember: We test the quality of the maps and see if they fit for the record sections, we are no beta testers!
Thanks for your attention :)

Additional map route:
kz_tpc_possclimb_b01 will from now on be divided into two alternative routes. The additonal route includes the snake, and therefore it's added as kz_tpc_possclimb_b01[+snake] and kz_tpc_possclimb_b01[-snake].
Check the picture if you're not familiar to the map.
we got 2 brand-new KZ_ maps for you.
The first map is:
kz_highlands by s0liD
Please make sure that you have the newest version of the map!!! (Updated 14:45 GMT +1 -> Sorry for the couple of mistakes.
Do you like speed maps, with lots of quick and easy jumps? Well this is one map that has tons of bhop lines, mixed with some amazing surfing parts. The atmosphere is one of simplicity, situated in a "highland" type scenario. As well as being a peacefull map.
The second map is:
kz_fortress by rinkon and s0liD
It's like a very, very big, haunted castle. The map has a lot of oldschool jump lines, and the jumps in general are just superb. The map itself has a very spooky and erie atmosphere, and tends to be a very long climb. Just like Highlands, this map has a lot of unique textures, making it look like something out of HL2! So put your brave pants on and begin the climb!
Thanks to Fire for the help ;)
Good Luck and Have Fun at this maps :)
Welcome back to another addition of XJ's Weekly. Scary and Omilio have left me alone this week, with the help of a few other of course. I hope they come back soon, enjoying New York Scary? I know your going to read this. Sadly this week not much has happened. However on a brighter note, our servers are back up! Yay! Cups, Cups and more cups to come! Thats alot better then the boring week we had here at XJ. Ok, now on with the real weekly. Enjoy!
Read the rest...
as most of you might have already noticed the gameservers are back and online again :)
Our IRC bot will be back, too, so there will be more cups again very soon :)
We are also working on another mapcycle for server 2, the public server, so if you have any ideas feel free to post them!
Note: The "Server Top15" function is still not working 100% (some little bugs) and will be fixed soon. Don't worry, all the top15 times are NOT lost.
