[07:51:51] <vividos> hi
[08:11:04] --> charlieg2 has joined #uwadv
[08:11:33] <charlieg2> why don't you guys contact EA and find out who is responsible for the copyright of the game material
[08:11:49] <charlieg2> since you still have it, perhaps they'd allow you to release it as gpl.
[08:11:50] <vividos> hi! for what purpose should we do that?
[08:12:02] <charlieg2> hi vividos :)
[08:12:12] <vividos> I don't think they will do that, and so I don't try to
[08:12:20] <charlieg2> why don't you think they would?
[08:12:21] <charlieg2> :)
[08:12:28] <charlieg2> they don't sell it anymore, do they?
[08:12:31] <vividos> they didn't do it in the past
[08:13:04] <charlieg2> these are companies. they don't do non-profit stuff unless you ask them to.
[08:13:29] <charlieg2> tho your engine is looking good :)
[08:13:30] <vividos> I think EA doesn't do non-profit stuff at all
[08:13:33] <vividos> thanks :)
[08:14:18] <charlieg2> it's just the appeal of your game would widen massively if you posted the game data with the engine
[08:14:22] <vividos> btw, when EA would release uw1 under the GPL, the people who released that pocketpc version would really be sad, if not angry
[08:14:37] <charlieg2> i would be playing it now if i had the disks, but i lost them long ago.
[08:14:53] <vividos> that's bad
[08:21:14] <charlieg2> well i couldn't get it to run on anything after dos, so i got lazy and gave up
[08:22:24] <vividos> not even win98?
[08:26:27] <charlieg2> had friends high up in the piracy business, went to win2k before it came out
[08:26:59] <charlieg2> but iirc i couldn't get it to run alongside win98, tho that was a long time ago.
