Hi everyone. ExcessicePlus is one of the biggest mod for quake 3 and I think the developpers can do a last big thing. If ExcessivePlus release its sourcecode that can be a big thing for ALL the quake3 based game ! With this sourcecode we can improve all the game still alive ! Think to the new generation. Imagine you started your own game based on q3 with already this source code available, that's not helpfull, it's much more ! I'm just someone who loved this game and who know how the game can continue to exist into new games. That's my mind now you can explain yours.

Re: ExcessivePlus Sources Code

Not sure if that can be a good idea. some other big boss after that can take the source just for own profits

Re: ExcessivePlus Sources Code

It won't be given just like that, not because of the copyrights of the original author's, but also because newest E+ contain significant changes in the codes, such as build-in anti cheat tools to detect autoaim/autoshoot behaviours or in newest version not yet available the anti wallhack, so person who would obtain the source codes could look into it, check how those anti cheat features works and make its own cheat that would bypass those features and work freely.

Or if it could be given away for the public (that would be awesome) it could be obscured version, I mean anti cheat feature codes could been encrypted inside and everything else would be plain text or the version with cut off anti cheat tools (without it on the source code) Happy

But chances for that are like 0% anyway Tongue

Maybe at least they could let some active developers in, the code base could be maintained.

Re: ExcessivePlus Sources Code

I support this idea of further developing the game via working on the sources. But who has them? And does this person agree to give them away?

@: Sure but in an other POV you can say that if this AC don't move it will be useless. Okay that can block the cheat for E+ but if that's released that also can block the cheat from all the other q3 based game.
@: I don't want to use the source of E+ from one dark developper or something. I really want an official release by the E+ authors for legacy ect...
@: make an official E+ github repo is cool but you don't have to make a new website if the developper released it.
@: Yeah good movie I love it

Re: ExcessivePlus Sources Code

Hey everyone, I would like to relaunch this discussion. I know about the anticheat system and I know how it works. Even if it is public, it will still be hard to make cheats that works and still bypass this anticheat, but it will be feasible of course.

But if this is the major obstacle to releasing the sourcecode, then there is a solution: release the sourcecode without the anticheat (nor antiwallhack). This way, the community can work on enhancing other features, and the official E+ devs are the only one who can release an official E+ version WITH anticheat and antiwallhack.

This way it's both a win-win: E+ gets (hopefully) contributions from the community (even if it's in the far future, E+ will live on, this is guaranteed by opensourcing) and E+ devs still retain a way to authentify their releases since only official E+ will have anticheat.

Re: ExcessivePlus Sources Code

I don't think anyone will give you that, it's not open source.
