    They're one in the same. It's still worth looking into- but I don't think FOSS is going to happen. Monolith is a Time-Warner captive studio these days, so I don't know how open they're going to be opening Lithtech 2.0/2.1 which would be needed to make a FOSS version- and a license to the engine would need to be obtained for any kind of port, above and beyond getting VU to sign off on the game content and naming.

    I found this piece of news. Not sure if it's anything usable.

    It.
    Is.



    No port seems to have been attempted. EECH's a good game for the combat sim crowd. I'm off for the day and may be late getting home from work (Meeting up w/my GF... ) so it may be tomorrow before I respond. Good catch, this, I think.

    Mentioned in the other thread, but I may as well reiterate it here. I'd love to see TES4: Oblivion ported. I've never heard anything negative about non-MS systems from Bethesda, and I don't see why they wouldn't have the whole source.

    Would be nice to see it running natively with OpenGL/OpenAL instead of Direct3D/DirectSound.

    they don't own the engine, yet the engine has a PS3 port hint OpenGL

    I've iterated my list before, hope that Svartalf took notes, should i post them again here? do you make a list? unfortunately Interplay/Troika and others died, so many games won't make it, but i hope you get a "viable" list of games together and keep us informed

    Licaon, shouldn't we not make Svartalf's job a little easier? Why not repost it here? Anyway, who knows? You might update the list here.

    On my free time, I'll go hunt more source code released games.

    I found this one the looked down and saw Mircosoft share source... (if I remember correctly that's the look but don't touch license MS has)

    Pretty much the only ones for that list can could be ported are KOTOR1+2, Gothic and morrowind I think as the rest are by developers now dead and BG has a FOSS engine that's close to completion.

    Believe me, Svartalf and I exchanged PMs on it for some time now. That's a pass. No way that's going to happen in Linux.

    On some other titles, I wish (it's a wish list, right?) Jade Empire and Mass Effect get ported. That's so not going to happen though.

    Anyway, be on the look out for released source games.

    That is what I had assumed seeing as Microsoft is involved.
