Y'know, this looks awfully familiar. I suppose it's not an entirely original idea, even when I saw it first done, but ... well ... I dunno. It seems to me that Jekyll has taken a good idea and expanded upon it - made it a little better. So I suppose that's a good thing. :)
I remember having some great FFA's on the TMBJ map in the boxing ring. And that's what this entire map is - the boxing ring! Except, with the music and flashing lights, I kinda see this more as a cross between a boxing ring and a disco. Heh. The map consists of one large room with some stands for the spectators to occupy during a fight. The ring itself is a bit small, but perfect for a duel. There's an area for the "announcer" who can ring the bell, announce that classic line "Get ready to rumble" and lower the cage, all with their use key. :) If you're in the ring when the cage is lowered, it is most definitely going to be a fight to the death - or until someone lifts the cage again. And if you hit the ropes, you will bounce back.
It looks like up top, those four black boxes are supposed to be speakers, and that room up there is for the media - is that correct? I guess the only things that really disappoint me about this map are the lack of detail in some areas, and those doors that don't open! Would've been clever to have those two doors (red and blue) open into locker rooms and maybe have them controlled by the announcer. Y'know, like the announcer could give the specs on each fighter and then lift the door and they could come either running out and playing to the crowd, or walking out, like, playing it cool and stuff. *giggle* Anyway, so yeah. Other than that, I like this map. It's a clever idea for a small FFA, or for a fun little duel tourney. :)

****Get Ready to Rumble - KNOCKOUT!!!**** Mapped by jekyll http://Jekyll.low-ping.com D.S.C@earthlink.net Filename: GRTRknockout Filesize: 5.4MB Release Date: January 31, 2004 Installation -Download map -Extract to your /gamedata/base directory in your JKA folder GRTRknockout - FYI To open cage from inside walk up to the button coming out of the side of the console and press the use button. Stop just short of the cables or else you will bounce off them. The map is much more realistic with a subwoofer=P. Giving Thanks: I would like to thank The JKA mapping forums for all the help and input. Without them I would still be figuring out how to enter the game =). I would like to thank both Rich Diesel, and Babba for their extensive mapping tutorials. I would like to thank other mappers for their work that have helped me come up with ideas to start on. Thanks to those whoever produced the songs and sounds used in this map. Issues: No issues have been found with this map. Blocknpc brushes have been used to confine bots to normal areas and to cause them to appear more "intelligent." I have yet to have any issues with this however anything is possible. Also there are delays set on the buttons in order to keep sounds from overlapping. If a button doesnt work, wait a few seconds and try again. why...Why...WHY!!!!!! This map was created in light of the new Melee mods coming out. This map is a small one-room arena based on a boxing/wrestling ring. This map should work in FFA, duels, and Team FFA. I created this map in order to take a break from a larger project: The Estate of the Jedi Elite order. This map will eventually be a room in the Estate map, however I wanted to get some examples of my work out into the public, so I released this room early. Please look out for the Estate of the Jedi Elite order - est. completion: Spring 2004 Enjoy! -Jekyll- -JKA mapper- THIS MAP IS NOT MADE, DISTRIBUTED, OR SUPPORTED BY ACTIVISION, RAVEN, OR LUCASARTS ENTERTAINMENT COMPANY.
