Software News   Software News : Quake 3 Arena Source Delayed.
   posted by Toaks on 3-Jan-2005 11:16:57 (2663 reads)
Quake 3 Arena source delayed:

It Seems us Amiga Users have to wait abit longer for this game, have a look what it said on the site which should have had the sources ready by now.



--> Snip

I intended to release the Q3 source under the GPL by the end of 2004, but we had another large technology licensing deal go through, and it would be poor form to make the source public a few months after a company paid hundreds of thousands of dollars for full rights to it. True, being public under the GPL isn?t the same as having a royalty free license without the need to disclose the source, but I?m pretty sure there would be some hard feelings.


Previous source code releases were held up until the last commercial license of the technology shipped, but with the evolving nature of game engines today, it is a lot less clear. There are still bits of early Quake code in Half Life 2, and the remaining licensees of Q3 technology intend to continue their internal developments along similar lines, so there probably won?t be nearly as sharp a cutoff as before. I am still committed to making as much source public as I can, and I won?t wait until the titles from the latest deal have actually shipped, but it is still going to be a little while before I feel comfortable doing the release.

--> Snip.

I must admit, i'm not a fan of FPS, so i do hope they spent the money for
something more worth it.

Like an epic adventure/rpg mix. Don't you think!

Q3 Arena is fun and will most likely still linger around past the thunder of DOOM3 and HL2. There are still some very fun mods for Q3A, like Rocket Arena and True Combat, among others. The team that created Urban Terror jumped to the Wolfenstein engine, unfortunately, without really pushing the Q3A engine (compared to how nice the True Combat mod looks and plays...better than Counter-Strike).

This will most likely need to be an A1/OS4 port exclusively because the Q3 engine really needs a minimum of a 400-500mHz G4 and is just playable (not terribly well, but not horribly bad) on the Radeon7000, which has little in the way of 3D accelleration.

pockets:i played quake3 alot on dreamcast and its too fast on that
anyway im sure the radeon7k will manage this game nicely ...as the game runs sweet on a pc with voodoo3 so....

but then again....we amiga users have a diffrent view on what "great" and "fps" is...all about..
