Thanks for everything! I will keep you in mind when we have some source code to give out.
Great work ! I am just disapointed you gave up on the WC4 DVD version, though. If you change your mind someday and want to try again to fix it, we'd all be very happy !
wait a minute, you haven't played academy, armada, privateer, privateer 2 or arena yet! and what about watching the tv show! (oh and don't forget secret ops after you finish prophecy!)
Actually, Privateer 2 does have a windows version that needs fixing.
It's rather sad that large corporations end up owning tons of IP they don't care about, and then the assets are left to rot, until they are no longer recoverable.. Some companies do care enough to release their games as open source - iD being the shiniest example, but others too, even if it happens as they're going out of business..
I don't have any of those, sorry =) And secret ops doesn't seem to be trivial to get either. Did check out the tv show though =)
I think id probably sets an impossible standard--their business model is based around licensing their latest engine to other companies... so it's in their best interest to see previous iterations stop being commercialy viable. EA just sells games, so there's no strong argument in favor of giving away the recipe.
