Carmack's Thoughts

Recommended Posts

Over at Slash Dot Dot Org Carmack made a few posts regarding Doom 3 and general id things. In the first one he mentions that he's quite proud of the final product and it's gone beyond his expectations. He also goes a small amount into id's next project. His second post also mentions that the Quake 3 engine will become open source before the end of the year. Good stuff.

You know, just from the way he sounds, I'd really like to meet him someday and just discuss stuff. He seems cool.

And it's cool that Quake3's going open source. That'll give me something to impress my teachers with this comming school year.

I hope that the licence he chooses is DFSG-ish. Am I right in thinking that Q2 is only available under a non-commercial one?

Wow you're out of date.

Q2 source was released under the GPL 2 years ago.

I expect Q3 would be the same.

God I hope so. Some educational use crap would suck.

Not a single id source release since the original one for Doom has been not under the GPL.

Speculation is all well and fine, but when so many factors work against that fantasy world including historical impetus ...

Bwa ha haaa.

Hey John,
Would one of those higher priority things be providing duct tape to the largest, most powerful high tech company in the solar system that happens to run an installation on Mars that seems to have a high percentage of leaking ducts?

It is also useful for taping flashlights to weapons, or the side of one's helmet.

Thanks,
A Concerned Marine.

cheers for the tip - I checked it fairly recently but idgames2/idstuff/quake2/source/q2src320.shar.gz has the 'LIMITED PROGRAM SOURCE CODE LICENSE'. I didn't see/download the alternatives idgames2/idstuff/source/q2source-3.21.zip and quake2.zip.
