Other FPS Source Ports

Recommended Posts

Are there other old FPS source ports? Doom/Heretic/Hexen have a lot, and now Randy is making a good work with Strife on ZDoom. Duke 3D and Quake have good ports too. But I'd like source ports for those games:

- Blood /Redneck Rampage (both uses Duke 3D code).
- Marathon 2 (this game is cool, the only problem is that mouse support sucks. I wonder if there is a port that "fix" it)
- Descent/Descent 2.
- Dark Forces (I'd like to play under Win XP).
- Wolf 3D.
- Blake Stone (uses Wolf 3D code).

All these games had their source codes released... If someone knows advanced ports for any of these games please tell me. Thanks.

Blood has never and will never see the source released.

There's plenty of Wolf3D source ports though. Google is your friend.

Rott has a few ports floating around, and Descent 1 and 2 do as well. I also know Wolf3d has some.

NewWolf is the only Wolf3d port worth looking into. It has openGL support, as well as support for high resolution textures.

Dark Forces will never see a source port.

Some people have reported success in running it under XP, it's a matter of having decent sound emulation and VESA support in your video card drivers.

this is probably a nice project to wait for though

Is this something official, or just extrapolated from LucasArt's behavior with SCUMM? Just curious.

Wow, the last time I looked at that project must've been two years ago! And it's for Academy instead of Jedi Outcast now. Neat.

Why? They've lost the code like the Strife Team?

Because GT Interactive owns the rights to the source code. No amount of petitioning, badgering, threatening, or bribing will get GT to release any of its stuff for free - even though they're pretty much dead by now.
