Hello, is there any license info on Tyrant - the code or the artwork ?
I recognized some of the artwork (I think some comes from an angband tileset)
I *guess* that there's no license and that it would be pretty hard to add one by now as there are many contributors :-P
I was fairly sure that the GPL covered all game content, not just the code. But I could be mistaken, mikera would be the best one to answer this question... But, if some original artwork was not GPL'ed that could be problematic...
Tyrant is available under the GPL v2. Anything released under the public domain, BSD license etc. is automatically GPL compatible. Wher there is any uncertainty, I have checked with authors of graphics etc. that they are happy with releasing their work under these terms.
I also include a conditionthat I may release the work under a newer license at a leter time. This is to enable us to move to GPL v3, or some other superior license should the need arise.
