Any idea where the source is?

So everyone has been talking much about the source code to be released after the launch of Rage, but I've yet to see it, and I periodically check to see if it might be on the id ftp, but it's been inaccessible to me since the release of Rage

Man, needing lawyer clearance for releasing their own engine...

There's a reason for that. It starts with "C" and ends with "reative".

Speaking of whom...

@ID_AA_Carmack tweeted:
Lawyers are still skittish about the patent issue around "Carmack's reverse", so I am going to write some new code for the doom3 release.

It starts with "C" alright, but ends with something else (like unts).

Creative pretty much are nothing but a bunch of slimy, filthy, pus-soaked cunts.

I still find the whole Aureal ordeal scandalous.

In order for the code to be legally or at least usefully released under the GPL, all patent encumbrances ought to be taken care of anyway, regardless of what any lawyers think.

It'll be interesting to see how/if the new algorithm Carmack employs changes the appearance of the game and/or affects its speed. I figure he'll put his mind to doing it "right" and not cop out with the fastest-to-code solution he can think up, but we'll see ;)
