Sorry if there's already a thread for this.

Today I've finally been able to play some multiplayer JSWO - the game is fantastic. Shame there's often no one on the gameserver (wonka) which is generally online.

It's thoroughly recommended - hopefully the large Making Of piece in RG 37 will boost the number of players.

Managed to complete 'Pitfall Willy' - that's one tough challenge

Yeah there is another thread on this - but its good to have a fresh one now that its been in the mag!

Absolutely cracking little game -- just wish I could play it more.

Maybe we need to arrange a time and day for a gang of us to have a bash!

Look for me in the game being played in RG... Yes, MPM is famous at last :lol:

I keep missing sessions on this as well, would be nice to get together with some of you guys on this.

Arranging an evening would be great. Any suggested times/dates anyone?

-I saw your avatar in the screen-shot MPM, and am suitably jealous!

I downloaded it yesterday and had a quick runaround with some random guy who was on. Someone post a scheduled game and I'll be there.

Yep just downloaded it during lunch and in there at the moment in the 25th anniversary WOS room.

Had a quick go, looks excellent, after reading that article in RG i had to give it a go. Congrats to all involved

My only tiny mini gripe is, i thought the keys would be QW and Space !

Why didn't I download this earlier? I've just been on a full server and managed to win a round of "Manic Willy" (which sounds ruder than it really is) - a modified version of Manic Miner. Great fun and perfect for when a certain RetroLeague game gets irritating.

Played a few times. Never liked JSW, but add the O and it is quite a laugh.

JSW is a fiendish little game, not graphically amazing but is a hell of a challenge, I keep meaning to play it online at some point but a lot of the time I'm not able to use the PC when most of the games are in progress

there're a couple of games on at the moment (9.30pm UK time) - no-ones in the WoS server, there's some players on "Bluemeat's server"

Well I have switch off in a sec due to my brother having to go to bed and this PC being in the same room, Friday and Saturday Night I tend to be online into the wee hours, so perhaps I will try my luck then

Where can you get the latest list of servers from?

if you've got the latest build of jswo then you can use the f4 'join game' option - choose 'refresh' then select a server

i'm getting slaughtered at 'manic willy' right now!
