Open Source, please.
« on: November 21, 2008, 07:50:59 PM »
(I also posted this on PTR)

If the servers are going offline permanently, I would like to petition for the game to be made open source so that some of us who are capable of programming will be able to set up free servers and improve on what is currently available.

They could easily make it open source under GPL, assign the copyrights to NCSoft. Trademark the Tabula Rasa brand-name and artwork.

Even if they open sourced it under GPLv2 and required royalties, I'm willing to code and maintain a server.

/signed... i love the game too much to see it go down
1) I reject your reality.... and substitute my own
2) Not to be used when upset... will void warranty
3) Stoke me a clipper i will be back for dinner
4) Never tell Gangrel to do anything... he will probably get it wrong
5) I have seen more intelligence from an NPC AI in TR beta, than from most MMO players.
6) BLOG ME!

well, it's not that easy as you might think, since there are literally worthless things like namerights and brandings that are very expensive for strange reasons ...


and so on on on on on off on
