The "Jury-Rigged BJP Tools" are a modified version of Bengt Jardrup's Quake BSP Compiler suite,
with added support for Detail-Brushes, Hint-Brushes, the BSP2 format, among other things.

This project is currently on hold.

Since it was released, the community response can only be described as "happily ignored".
There was next to no feedback, even though some people initially promised to take a look.
What instead often followed were underhanded snarky remarks on messageboards about encountered problems which had never been reported, hence making it very hard to actually track down and fix them.

Only after a while arrived some feedback by very few people, which still helped a lot
in identifying and fixing problems, some of which not actually stemming from newly introduced features.
This has largely ceased now, even though they knew how feedback-starved this project really was.

Granted, the release-time and feature collision with a well-known toolset likely plays a large role in this.
Work on a lot of features had already been going for a while, most of them lighting related but not moved over to the final codebase yet.
The sudden release of the other toolset pretty much forced a quick release of what was in the main codebase so far, although due to the fact that this was never meant to be a competition project, it was mostly just a test-balloon at that point.

As expected, interest was pretty much nonexistant, and a lot of side-taking and strange propaganda followed,
making it clear that favouritism is still very predominant in this community, and probably always will be.
Only Map Projects seem to be considered for fair treatment as far as feedback is concerned.
If people think it is necessary to put up walls, it makes you wonder where the word "community" fits in, and if what's on the other side was ever really worth caring about.

Initially there were plans to add a lot more features, but why improve something for people who need to feel someone "worthy" enough is making the offering.

Another reason is that the development environment has become too inherently hostile for a while now.
The officially declared "Winners" ( largely by people who don't much care about fair assessment ) started to cherry-pick useful features off, a process that once started, rarely can be expected to stop.
There's a limit to watching something you once had high hopes for barely live and ultimately be picked clean.

Anyway, i'm sure this paragraph will make some people real happy.
