  Wow, Kirby's back? I wonder how Shiro and Oliali have been doing since this pandemic started in 2020.

  Wb Kirby, hope you enjoy your stay here.

  thx for the help, and which file for the Wayback Machine to get the working version of Flash that wasn't affected by the Time Bomb works?

  It's great to see you back and still around here Kirby, I haven't seen you in a long time. Late merry Christmas everyone!

  Hey there ^^

  Hi! You need an old version of Flash and a supporting web browser to do it. The most used one for BL is Pale Moon. In terms of getting the old version of Flash, the best way might be to join the BL discord to find it as a pinned message. I don't exactly remember how to set it all up as it was ages ago but that how I did it.

  Heya everyone! How do you play Jump Gear 2 on here if the Flash plug-in isn't supported?
chris3000 10 months ago
  Well I'm sorry you lost all your level data, what a dissappointment. Well at least you're back and in good shape. We were worried about you, :)

  Hey Chris & Coolguy ! I'm doing very good since... that many years ago (job + family + cat). I don't think I will hang out for long on JG2 as the editor is not as good as I remember + I'm so bad at the game. However, Blockoban and Moonlight seem a little bit more entertaining and can be easier to play. So I might post new levels there every now and then.
Coolguy52 10 months ago
  That's pretty sad, but welcome back! I think that's due to it being a local save so even if you have the same PC, the death of flash probably killed them all.

  Welcome back Magic! Are you planning on returning here too, I don't play JG2 that much anymore, as I have many other things to occupy my life. Plus my health/family comes first. But glad you are doing okay. How have you been coming along?

  Oh I found a way to play again but all the level edits I created and not published are lost :(

  I miss playing this game, I just have too much on my plate. It was so easy when I was a teen. When you're an adult, life gets tougher. I learned that from experience.

  I don’t know if there’s any great general tips for getting quicker in this game. A lot of it comes down to playing a lot. In general I think consistency is the most underrated factor in this game. Do not try anything that has a stupidly low success rate if you expect to be able to demonstrate good skill. Learning to be able to consistently do things slowly will allow you to push for a more skilful and quicker run with more ease.

In general, to attack a level you want to plan out your strategy:
Which tricks will you use?
What does an ideal run look like?
What is an ideal score with such an ideal run (this estimation will improve over playing)?
When you have planned the level, you want to build up to it by starting off with a more basic strategy and slowly introducing tricks. It is highly unlikely that you will be able to master any of these levels within 5-10 minutes, it may take many sessions to master one level to begin with, but I assure you it will get easier.

I found that even when I had mastered only a few levels (both Orbitals, Swirls and Curls highscores etc.) - I had improved from barely scratching 7M to 8M being a reasonable objective. From 8M to 9M was more of the same but I should point out that all three of those highscores I mentioned had been improved further (41,841, 20,090, 40,099 to 42,055, 20,529, 41,343). The reality is a perfect run is never doable, and if you can still improve your best scores, I think it is fully worth it - not because of the few hundred point you may gain, but to maximise your skill and potential!

If you want more specific tips for a particular level, feel free to let me know. Hope this helps!

  I don't come here often, this game is not enjoyable for me, most of the time I get trainer mode, so I'm not very skilled here. @CG52: can you give me some advice on how to be a faster Jump Gear driver?
chris3000 11 months ago
  Well I think it's time for me to surrender here, I will very seldomly play this game, just don't have the patience anymore. Plus taking care of my health/family is important and first and foremost. So my time is more valuable now.

  I am working on the odd level - but I feel like it will get a bit boring if only my levels get released as they're pretty tricky and all of a very similar style. It'd be very cool to see other levels - and I'm always happy to evaluate any. If I miss some, please do PM me. (If it's been week or at the least 3 days - please let me know!)

  So, what's in store for this game in the next few years? JP hasn't been here in a year so GIS can only add new officials. I would like to see maybe 4-5 new levels someday, maybe. Who agrees?

  Hey man, congrats!! It's been awesome seeing you push yourself so hard for these scores, I'm glad you could hit one more milestone! Hope to see you stick around in some capacity should the site ever find an audience again!
Coolguy52 2 years ago
  9.2M. A goal I genuinely thought wasn't even possible after my 9.1M - I'm not even sure what motivated me for this one. Seeing it was so close to being at least possible in theory was a big one, (well the total of highscores was just shy of it). I was never really going for it until I reached 9.18M myself as like I said - this is an unexpected milestone, and I'm confidently saying my final milestone ever. This game now has almost no activity which means almost certainly no new officials, and 9.3M just doesn't seem to be there at all. 9.25M is a goal which could be there, but that would require holding likely 130+ highscores, and I know that I just don't quite have that in me. 9.2M with about 100 highscores is something I am proud of achieving in this game.

I guess this is the end of my journey on the officials! I'm honestly not sure where to go from here. I will likely take a break from officials, but after that, there isn't a whole lot left for me to do in this game - except push for higher scores on individual levels I think. I want to say a massive thanks to everyone who shaped this game into what it is, a great - although sadly almost dead these days - community of players who create some epic levels and stories along the way. I'm hopeful that if this game were to get converted to a more convenient language that there could be (at least for a short while) a BL renaissance, and although I see it as unlikely, I would love to see more players step up if/when they manage to find a workaround and push these games further and further! It's definitely saddening how it ended - as it feels like a Dynamo vs. PineappleDude 9M race was coming up!

Once again - thanks to everyone who has shaped the BL community over the past 14 years, it's been one of my favourite communities that I've been involved in, and nothing is quite like it to me. Good luck to anyone who plays for highscores, or for a great global score!

  oh it's back now i forgot to say that
Coolguy52 2 years ago
  I don't remember entirely what caused this back when flash worked, I think there was some checkbox that if you clicked it it would remove all your locals. I'm not sure what the equivalent is now, or if there's a way to get the back...
LadersHD 2 years ago
  my local levels just disappeared- does anyone else have this issue? I had some actual great levels but all were unfinished
Coolguy52 2 years ago
  Nice job on getting flash sorted Laders!
LadersHD 2 years ago
  thank you Chris. what methods do you use to play the games with? i couldn't find any proper solution so far :(

edit: i found nelson's post and it works for me
Coolguy52 2 years ago
  JP could deactivate accounts, but nuking them is just as sufficient and even if IP bans could be done, there's always the option of a VPN

I think that the death of flash has had the one good consequence that even the most persistent of nuisances can't keep being motivated forever, and as far as I'm aware, she hasn't returned in months.
chris3000 2 years ago
  Nice comeback Laders, yes greyanna is showing bad traits here, I wish BL can ban people that cause trouble and mayhem here but I don't think you can permanently ban people. Even GIS and Elizea can't, all they do is delete the comments.
gameinsky 2 years ago
  That was greyanna

I did another pass and removed what I could.
Coolguy52 2 years ago
  I have no idea who they are. They seem to have stopped though. I managed to remove everything from the games that I could (Jump Gear 2 and Astrobreaker), but they seem to have posted a ridiculous amount of messages elsewhere so it isn't too unlikely that there are hundreds left.

Anyway, welcome back hopefully! Things have been going pretty well, steadily creating more levels. Hopefully at some point I'll release another one here but I will warn you that it is likely going to be quite hard!
