Strife for $1

Post by DaMan »

At Groupees. The other games don't look bad either. There's 9 cards between 2 games worth ~6¢ so you can get ~35¢ back in gaben $.

Veteran edition? Dynamic lights? How is this possible... Strife's sourcecode was claimed to be lost. But then, they can't exactly use sourceports for commercial purposes unless they made their own reverse engineering of the game.

Still is. There was some hope that one person still had it in a box, but apparently this was a red herring.

Guess what happened...

I believe most Id Tech 1/Doom Engine source ports can be used for commercial purposes, due to the fact that they have to be licensed under the GPL. (Since Doom's sourcecode was released under the GPL.) (Including ZDoom, if you remove the non-GPL code, I believe.)

That's pretty awesome, I didn't know chocolate strife even existed.
I'm quite foggy about the GPL license. It was my understanding so far that you have to include your source code. What's to stop someone from re-distributing your game with minor modifications?
(I hope I'm not derailing the thread too much with legal stuff)

The source code.
The assets (maps, graphics, sounds, etc...) aren't included in that. So, no, they can't do that.

Nothing prevents anyone from distributing the SVE engine to people who haven't bought SVE.

In fact, the Strife Veteran Edition source code is available on GitHub. I don't think anyone has done anything with it yet though.

There are two forks with some work on it. One is Strive, the other is about porting it to use SDL2.

Tenner says in the future there'll be a source port based on VE that runs all the IWADs ...

I'm pretty sure I heard them say that the rights are now back with Rogue Entertainment. Could be wrong though.

Whatever the legal concoction, NightDive has the rights to publish Strife on Steam (and wherever else, if it ever happens).
