2. This news was posted on slashdot and after a couple of attempts to bring the progress of open source games based on the id3 engine ... I was unable to retain implications of these new modified games to others in the community.
However here's what I got (although not always implemented).
It seems smokin' guns is the only thing to have anything that beats the "Mad-dog McCree" president that established this type of First person gaming. No-one can better the generation that tried to 'out-wit the bandit' and we see that this especially has a magnetic attraction in the American market (fun for everyone else too).
Of the id2 engine I feel that a Reddwarf style remake would be the making of this engine as avid fans from all over the world can fathom the ingenious plots/levels that the BBc drama would spurn. If you know of a Reddwarf game based on any Engine then let me know and I will pursue it. ???
