Hello!

I want to make suggestion, so don't bite me, it's only an idea ;)

It'll be great to open Original-War source code, so everyone who has any programming skill, can make their own cotribution to Orignal-War.

You ask me: "Why? Making commercial game non-commercial?" I answer:
Just do as Quake team has done - Release source code, but NO game content. Everybody can download sources and looks how the things is done, but to play you must buy game (becouse excluding source there are many other things, that you need to play - graphical objects, music, sounds etc.)

Looking forward for your respondse ;)

This is not our decision. If you want the game to be open-source then write to Altar, rather than bothering Stu about it. He could get into legal problems if he released the source code and most likely would have to close this site. Thats not what we want...

lol.. some time in 2005.. i sent email asking if they would give me the source code.. and as normal from them NO REPLY.. then hate me *cry*
Open Source is the best.. Doom is open source.. look at that it has 100's of ports etc, tho at the same time.. it was a dam popular game and a legiond.. Original war on the other hand is a kinda "wtf is that game" by about 99.9% of the gaming population.. so in some ways it is usless for it to be open source and it would mean that stu would not be the only one editing it and so there would be lame cracked versions and versions of it where it was easy for stupid n00bs who cant complete the campagin -.-

I only have the source code under the condition it is NOT RELEASED TO THE PUBLIC. I do not own the source code. I also would h8 to see it released openly since it would mean anyone could modify the game to do anything.

Having one version of OW is the best corse of action(not because im some dictator guy, but because of the negative things that could and proberly would happen).

Anyway, thread locked since it will achieve nothing(not my decision and altars doesn't want the source released).

Note: if OW was open source things like password protected OWP files wouldn't exist for example.

P.S Welcome To The Forum!
