Yeah and Microsoft is still selling Windows. The people who own Battlesphere won't do another run despite great demand so thats on them.
Now people bootlegging stuff Carl has the rights to at Songbird and is actually producing and selling still, that I think is very bad.


Yeah it's bad, but Carl will probably still sell to the people that were going to buy the real deal. I just bought Skyhammer from AA a few weeks back. I bought here because the real deal was available.The real thing isn't always available though.

I know some people will by a knock off when it fits their budget where the real thing never will.

Ah - I see.  I'm sure the movie studios think the same way.  If there's something I want that isn't on DVD, I can just copy it and start selling my own then.

Movie studios, DVDs, films, million dollar budgets. This doesn't quite compare to what is going on with Jaguar reproduction games.

 

One thing I'd love to see is 4Play release the source code to Battlesphere. Not the assets, but just the game code itself. It might be interesting to see what kind of games are built using their code and really it would only bring more attention to their work and what they were able to do with the Jaguar. Look at the amazing things that have been done with id software's source code releases.

 

GPL Battlesphere!

 

 

I just put on my flame retardant suit.

Hope that suit isn't too snug of a fit...

Lots of source code for lots of games released.  And, aside from someone blatantly re-skinning a RAPTOR Basic example for a quick cash grab, nothing has been done with any of them in so far as making another game (Doom, extra levels,  Checkered Flag, just getting it to compile)

It still would do no harm to have the code from Battlesphere under the GPL.
