    The source code for Return to Castle Wolfenstein and Enemy Territory was released under the GNU GPL on August 12, 2010.

    And? It's not like the code stopped existing the next day. As can see in the many replies about coding with this stuff, most people in here don't have to get any information the same day. I suspect the timing matters only if one sees it as a kind of news aggregation contest, which I fail to see the point of.

    Another pedant on Slashdot. Sigh. Go back to mommy's basement. The grownups are talking.

    Please, can we have the Doom 3 source code? The Dark Mod could be so much better if the devs had source access. Since we all know Thief 4 will be a consolized, uneditable mess, the future lies in The Dark Mod for us classic Thief fans. The original Thief games are buggy as hell on modern systems and the original publishers don't give a crap about us anymore. They refused to release the code for those Dark Engine games, so we have to do crap like disable multiple cores just to play them.
