    Wink What can happen in case of source release...

    Just a small result of one evening of not very hard work... As an example of how I would started changing ADoM if I would be allowed. Here, just unpack and load the only saved character, and explore nearby villages, temple, your own house etc. Most interesting things are hidden in new variant of Laven, also it worth to get druid's quest. Surely, you'll have some fun 8).
    If you'll like it - I suggest to organize a small competition in modifying the game by this way. May be, the Creator will like it, too - at least, I hope...

    With best regards, Mikhail.

    To be frank I imagine this is exactly what the Creator does not want to see, and actually severely puts me off the idea of the source code being released.

    As I said in another thread, I really suspect some of this might be trolling. I mean, look at the title of his post; 'what can happen in case of source release'....

    Either trolling or a straw-man argument from someone who, for some reason, strongly doesn't want the source released.

    Either way, it's depressing.

    Did you look at what he did? Must have taken several days with ADOMBot to create that. He's either well-meaning but doesn't properly understand TB's wishes, or is so dedicated a troll that he has zero life whatsoever.

    You are absolutely right. I do *not* want the source code to be released, I'm not even a straw-man 8). If you think you can do better - try, may be you'll be much more successful. It's easy with use of ADoM-Bot and some .exe-editing.
    I simply suggest to try to make your own modifications and see, how it looks.

    ...and, to be honest, I don't think it was *such* terrible, though I don't pretend it was something serious. Also I hope that somebody, not me, can really make something great?..

    And it really took only 6 hours. Upon my life =) !

    Oh. I have to leave this discussion, it's not my computer. What a pity. See you later.

    Congratulations, yet another copyright violation.
    Of course it's unfair - that's the whole point.

    Oh he called it.

    Regardless, even if you don't wish for the source code to be released, it's better to argue your points with good sense and reason rather than try and intimidate or distress someone into going along your path. If I put pictures of my kids up on the internet and someone photoshops them into pornography or something to convince me not to put anything personal up on the internet - well, it's neither an effective or polite arguing tactic, in my opinion.

    ya know, after seeing this I wouldnt be surprised if TB said "Ok thats it. F you people im not releasing anything." friggin noob. I wouldnt be surprised if he never beat the game without botting. Shouldnt he get banned for this??? AdomBOT is so not supported by TB and he posted a saved game that was botted. I would ban him if I could.
    To this day I have not once scummed in ADOM.
    Probably why I dont have a win.

    ADOM will die if the source is not released, he already has too much stuff to do for him to ever get to changing any of the code in the near-distant future
