How to Play The Game
When you start playing Deluxe Ski Jump 2, you have the opportunity to participate in World Cup or team competitions. You can choose between hills with the construction point ranging from medium K70 ills to the large hills and even ski flying hills, where you jump over 200 meters. After creating your ski jumper by choosing his name and the colors of skis, pants, helmet and gloves, you enter the competition. When you start competing in the World Cup, your jumper sits at the top of the hill. His movements are controlled with your computer mouse. You continue down the inrun and then start flying once you reach the take-off table. To keep the optimal position in flight, you must move your mouse. The buttons are for the take-off and for the landing. The latter can be made with the use of the Telemark (on click) or you can land on two legs (pressing two mouse buttons at the same time). After you land and hopefully do not trip over, the style score points are displayed.
One of the key elements of the flight is the wind blowing on the hill. The wind blowing in front and under the skis helps you reach long distances, especially on larger hills. However, when the wind starts to blow from the side, it can push your jumper to the side and ruin the perfect flight. When the indicator shows the wind blowing in the back, you can expect difficulties in making a long jump.
An important aspect of the game is beating the hill records. If your jumper beats the hill record the result is saved and from now on it appears as the line drawn at the landing.
Each competition consists of a series of two jumps, so you can make two attempts on every hill. The points for the distance and the style are added up and your ski jumper is classified accordingly. After jumping on all of the hills, the best skier wins the World Cup.
Deluxe Ski Jump 2 gives you the opportunity to watch the replays of your jumps, which are saved and available in the main menu. Thanks to this feature, you are able to see your best record jumps and analyze the flight technique. To test your skills before the official competition you can make training jumps on any of the available hills. This way, you will improve your skills before entering the official competition. Remember, however, that the record jumps made during training are not included in the official list of records.
