We have finally gotten into a (relatively bug free too :D ) early alpha stage with UT3 Jailbreak after a long hiatus. So you can see the progress we've made, I made a quick teaser trailer so you can see what's up and running. I even snuck in a little new feature for your enjoyment :)

P.S. I'm new to video capture and yes I know the audio is out of sync :)

Whats this Jailbreak thingy you ask? No, it's not a way to hack your iPhone to use Verizon's network (A recurring topic on our Jailbreak forum), it's a fun gametype for UT3 that was also made for UT99 and 2k3/4. Learn more about it here:

Before you all start to bitch... the Hoverboard will not be enabled by default, it's just a map specific feature. ;)

And of course anyone that wants to join is welcome, I'd be good to have more mappers and 2d/3d artists right now! :)

I really don't want to be a dick, but if the level shown in the youtube video is all you got... damn. :p
JailBreak was fun, I already contributed to it for a reason. :tup:

Its a fully functioning test map I made, was never meant to be anything special, it isn't gonna be in the final release! Made it a few weeks back as a test bed for the code.

I'm currently working on another map, and have another planned.

We do need more mappers though :)

The level really only provides a test environment. We'll toss it out as soon as we get prettier maps with working jail and arena setups. ;)

Yeah- it's been such a long time since most people had heard anything from us, that I did this to let everyone know it's still alive :)

@TheHead: Looking good! :tup:

Oh boy! I'm glad to get some news. A friend of mine was just asking me yesterday if Jailbreak is out yet. He's upgrading his computer and buying ut3 as soon as it is.

I would be interested in joining as a mapper, it would all depend on your release schedule as I don't have the time now. If its not going to be released for like 3 months than I would be able to contribute :)

Last I heard (may be different now) they were mainly looking for coders. Of course having as many jailbreak maps as we can get would be great :)

I would actually love to join the team as a coder... I just don't really have anything to show off unrealscript-wise. I am a programmer by profession, but I can see how a team of this caliber would be hesitant to take on an unproven coder.

Edit:
Now that I have my pc up and running after a bummer of a summer with a dead motherboard, maybe I can get some work done on the ut3 Tower Defense mod I have planned.

Back on topic, how has the code development been going so far? Has any of the complaints I have heard about this iteration of ut's modding difficulties proved to be much of a problem?

I loved JB in 2k4, especially playing for the BuF JB team which basically dominated the TWL JB ladder. :D

actually, with Wormbo hard at work on the JB code, we could definitely use more maps, and someone with modelling skills for a few odds and ends we'll need.

Jailbreak has always been one of my favorite mods for both ut99/2k4 & i've been looking forward to a release for UT3. Sadly though, with the fall lineup of incredible titles fast approaching, i fear that by the time jailbreak is actually released, UT3 will have gone the way of the dodo.

evilmrfrank, We haven't planned an exact time yet, but we want to enter the MSUC. As it stands a release won't be any time soon as we have a few more bits of code to implement, aswell as a lot of maps and other content required!

Dannymeister, the core code is pretty much covered by Wormbo, but there are other areas that will need coding which Wormbo is leaving for others, implementing the dynamic music and working on getting llamas to work are two things that need doing at the moment if you are interested?

People interested in working on the mod come join us on irc in #utjb or post in our forums. Easier for us to keep track of that way :)

Thats one of my favorite mods, along with domination.

2v2 arenas? I waited this to be added for long time :lol:

This is going to be great - I'd happily contribute a map or so if you want.

We'd welcome it. :) Get started on something, or if you want to convert something you've already done (CTF maps tend to be decent JB maps) Ask Wormbo about access to the JB dev forum :)

If you're interested I'm more than willing to make a JB map, i've always loved the gametype. Here's one of my WIP maps for UT3 http://forums.beyondunreal.com/showthread.php?p=2175992#post2175992

It looks fantastic, but can't try it whilst at work.
