the page updates
December 1, 2013 23:13 - Better late then never, SJ3 is now freeware and a free full version can be found and installed at the SJ3 Download page. As of today no new registrations are available.
I'd like to give a huge heart-felt thank you to all the wonderful people who took their time and little bit of money to support the game back in the day!
The full free version installer is also equipped with DOSBox, a wonderful utility that helps run old DOS games (such as SJ3) on modern computers. A new What's Up file has more info.
March 14, 2011 15:37 - SJ3 is ancient 16-bit software and it doesn't work directly on 64-bit operating systems. However, free DOS emulators such as DOSBox are able to fully run SJ3 on 64-bit systems. Please see the SJ3 on 64-bit page for more details! Currently you will have to install SJ3 and DOSBox separately, but I'll see if I can make a single installer for the magic combination in the near future.
December 7, 2009 23:29 - Czarek U and the guys are still organizing international SJ3 competitions, so please check out www.sj3.pl and test your jumping skills against the rest of the world! The site is in Polish, but Czarek welcomes everybody to join in!

February 12, 2006 03:44 - Surprise! Some smart guy found a flaw in version 3.11, which made it possible to cheat in SJ3 competitions. So I made a quick fix and released a small update version to ensure fair competitions. Version 3.12 is available at a specific upgrade to v3.12 page. Note!
