Me ether be something if it was useable like half life or other's but this not a fullgame and hardly works I rather see the src to these things not compiled leaked builds.. So we could try finish them.. or mod them.. Flight sim one they said we will release the src not seen it just the buggy build..

I didn't ask him, but I'm assuming it's because he's using his freedom of choice.

Personally I think the current pandemic is shifting priorities for many of us and thus this fundraiser is not getting the attention it normally would get, which of course is highly understandable.

Fellow member @thedoctor45 really stuck his neck out for this one! So I just chipped in, hoping to see this release become a reality. Regardless of what comes out of PCs quest, I would love to see this and any other build out there.

For me it is not a problem to add to see this gem live in action. Two less beers to drink :P Every cool project is worth supporting - even small ones.
And the threshold for HOMM3 is ridiculously low - 250 euros.

What? Source codes are rarely ever released for dc prototypes and even when they are people do nothing with it because they dont want to use the official sdk or deal with almost none existent legal problems.

No one was asking for source code of geist force when that was funded twice if i remember right for alot more money than this making what you said about source irrelevant. They were just happy to even get a chance to obtain it. I personally had no issue donating 50 to that, if i wasnt so broke i would do it again for this one.

Some people are happy to release for free some want something in return, it isnt a big issue. Like the doc says i guess everyone is free to donate or not. Just keep in mind if you let it slip its most likely gone for good providing the other (ubisoft employee)falls through. It will also take test drive cycles with it.

Good luck thedocter45.

Not the point on using the official devkit it seeing the code examples on how they did it.. they can be applied some to kos.. If no one asked they should of.. There is a few i have of games src so they do exist there very helpful.. I asked for the flight sim the guy said no worries it will be released..

I've chipped in with 5€, let's not get this one to waste, no matter what may come out of other efforts :)
