That was a joke, notice the smiley face :D The only thing questionable is the nails sprite has the letters NIN with a second backwards N like the Nine Inch Nails trademark and the midi files are recompositions of Nine Inch Nails songs. I intend to rectify these legal problems in subsequent releases....

I didn't know that about DarkPlaces. Now I can understand some more about why it is so highly regarded, especially by modders. That it is very clean. We have made efforts to make FreeQuake clean and legal, and as far as the files go they are all distributed in one shape or form elsewhere, with the e...

Frika I agree. It is a little bit of an offwhite area. My intent is good and I want to do everything legally. EULAs, if strictly intepreted, forbid everything. Same with trademarks. About the only engine without the word Quake in it is Dark Places. Btw ... if you have a sense of humor: First, if you...

Not to promote a probably overly technical conversation, but the shareware license agreement is also dated June 21, 1996 and forbids a great deal of things that if interpreted narrowly, would forbid projects like Nexuiz that run custom maps. Some of the license agreement is superceded by the GPL rel...

The legality of distributing the 'best standalone SP maps' has to be called into question though. Most maps for Quake use standard id textures and what you're talking about is essentially a seperate game. id gave special permission early on for map authors to include id textures in their maps (beca...

Let me add a #3 in ... #3 How hard to modify a progs.dat to make EVERY "end of level" teleporter return to a map named "START"? Why? Because I think there needs to be a "greatest single player maps" pack that includes, say, 50 really good standalone maps and a single en...

The Quake community is dying, but it is only because it is not available for sale at a decent price (or at all) ... (For those that do not know, the ID Software store is down. Last time it was down, it was down for almost a year. Meanwhile, it is, largely true, that it is impossible to buy Quake. Th...
