like the title sais...is it posible because iv been wondering even with DirectX programing??
1. Probably hardly anyone has the source code, I don't have it either.
2. Probably will it be very hard to compile and at that time it only used Directx for graphics and was very integrated with the whole windows stuff... it was only 2007+ when they started OS independency.
3. What would be the use of it?
[Damn pressed reply too early because i used <tab>]
-You couldn't distribute it freely
-You would still need more maps and models
-We already have very advanced engines like:
plus just yesterday the source code of wolfenstein:enemy territory and return to castle wolfenstein was open sourced.
Will soon go online.
2...well that part beats me up
3.2 reasons, one is pesure and 2cnd one is linux needs more games damn it :S (yes i know steam is going out for linux soon but i cant wait , better use whats on the field)
4. i wouldn't distribute it, at least i would do the same what garrysmod.org did
5.there are ways...
6.actyualy...xreal kicks ass
first it's piracy and you might get yourself into trouble!
second it's old and probably that code might be incomplete!
third if i was a moderator or admin i would ban you from forums!
As Lykos said you might get some foss src code and enjoy making games or you could buy a license of unigine or torque 3d engine!
1.i have the source and some .bat with what i can download stuff..i can upload it if youd like itYou won't distribute it but you will upload it? WTF?4. i wouldn't distribute it, at least i would do the same what garrysmod.org did
If you really want just to play around with it, ok i've nothing against it, enjoy it! But after posting something like your post which is quite popular in my opinion you might have attracted many eyes, maybe some feds or even someone from valve. with this kind of post you are guilty of having the source and valve won't like, and if you are an US citizen, poor guy, you even don't know your country laws!!!
Valve won't shutdown with your tinny act, but their tinny act is big enough to put you in jail. And i wouldn't be stupid enough to do what you did i would keep to myself!
The first Linux port of Quake was actually done by someone using an unauthorized copy of the source. So in a way, this would be sort of fitting, given that the Half-Life 1 engine was based on Quake
That said, the game industry have become a lot more litigious since then, and you would probably just add credence to the silly rumors that Linux users are cheap, "hackers", and likes to break the law...
(Oh, and if you have any plans on working in the game industry I wouldn't touch that source code with a ten foot pole.)
