Description

Deluxe Ski Jump is a shareware ski jumping simulation with full 3D graphics and excellently modelled real world physics. The game contains 32 different hills, which vary in size from the tiny K50 in England to the huge K250 in Slovenia. DSJ also allows for up to 16 players (computer or human controlled) to compete for the World Cup trophy simultaneously, using the same computer.

The actual jumping is performed using the mouse buttons (for jumping and landing) and by moving the mouse up and down (to angle your jumper in flight). This system works quite well, though it takes practice to master.

There are several factors that affect the outcome of a jump, of which the most important is timing. A poorly timed "take off" will most likely drag you down and force you to land prematurely. Other factors include wind strenght and direction as well as a certain knowledge of the hill you're jumping.

Trivia

References to the game

The game was very popular in Poland between 2001 and 2003 because of Adam Małysz's massive success. It even made a cameo appearance in movie E=mc². (Youtube video of the scene in question). The translated dialogue:
- Jeżyk! Come here!

- What's up?

- I jumped 280 on Slovenia.

- As who?

- As Małysz of course.

- Show the replay!

- I felt..
