This is just to let interested parties know that Mr. Steve Fawkner has allowed us to re-distribute the Source Code (with a signed Non Disclosure Agreement) to interested coding parties, for free, quasi-open source work.
A Community Mod Project has been in effect for just over a year, now, producing editors, fine tuning tools and other coding forks for the ‘house rules’ re-distiribution of the game.
Interested parties should check the link below at the Battlefield, for more information. There is an FAQ in the ‘Archives’ Section, where most of the editors, decoding tools, and other points of interest are stored. There are also a handful of unofficial patches avaialble from the original mod project home :The Cheeseportal. Its owner, Jodwin, is working on a new ‘Data Pak’ Technology to help correct balance and other issues, including an enhanced netcode system for individuals who wish to mod their own House Rules when playing Multiplayer.
All 3d rendering artists, Programmers, and interested parties are welcome to join us at either forum, and we would love to hear from you. We are also working with some modders from the Baldur’s Gate Series to try to get some ‘fusion’ of the two games, over time.
If you are interested in Signing the NDA, just read the FAQ first. There is absolutely no charge to sign, but you must be of legal age to obtain the source code (18).
Best Regards, and thanks to this Forums Administrator, for allowing me to post this information. Hope to see you all soon!
