Is there a tuxracer CVS tree? I noticed the last release of tuxracer
was some months ago; is it still under active developement? Is there a
working current CVS I could try? What new goodies and features will be
put in for the 1.0 release?
I am working to subvert from within ...
umm ... by writing shoddy code ... and
charging too much.
Thanks for the link. May the best game win. For the record, I've
bought games from Loki in the past. The Quake scheme of releasing under
GPL after 4 years of being sold commercially doesn't offend me.
Has Sunspire Studios made a formal announcement that that is their
By my reading of the GPL, you are within your rights to fork from 0.61,
and they are within their rights to not release versions after 0.61
under the GPL ever. That would be a bad PR move, but its legal.
My being willing to pay them $20 is predicated on the fact that, like id
and Aladdin, they seem so far like they will be releasing the game under
GPL, but time-delayed.
When can we have a formal announcement of the plan to release the game
under GPL? We need a specific time in the future. I think one year is
too early, unless you plan to enhance it and really promote a newer
version at the end of that year under similar terms, but 4 years is
acceptable to me. And even if the game gets released under GPL and
source is available there is NOTHING stopping you from marketing and
selling it as a regular shrink-wrap game. A lot of people will still
buy it in stores if they see it as a way of "supporting Linux". So put
it in a shrink-wrap box and get it out there in all the Circuit City,
Radio Shack, and Future Shops you can.
