Seth, what is the real reason you won't release the source to this excellent game? Yeah, why don't you just release it, so people like me will stop bothering you about it? http://www.rtsoft.com/ib3/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif

nah, who would want that old crappy code eh?

07-24-2002, 05:21 PM
I've seen peices of it, trust me, you don't want it...

Yeah it will "hurt the game programming community more than it will help."

Yeah, I actually have made plans to have the source locked in a box and air-dropped over the north pole.

It's the only way to make sure the earth stays safe!

Aww Seth - I'm just starting college, I'd like to see what truly nasty code looks like, so I'll know what to avoid. http://www.rtsoft.com/ib3/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif

Now I'll go sacrifice neverwinternights for the only god!

But now I'll go pray at my altar, I have the dinkbox as an icon, next to the jaggededged dagger, the skulls and the black candles...

Quote[/b] ]Release the source code for Dink now!!! I mean, you made it free, might as well do it, right?

Seth: Yeah yeah.. maybe sometime, but not enough time has passed so I can say "wow that was a long time ago, look at that awful code" - there is kind of a rule you have to wait 3 years to not be embarrassed by old code.

Hey, I don't make the rules, so don't blame me. :P

If I remember right, Dink Smallwood started shipping in January 1998. And now it is July 2002... thats a good 4 and a half years http://www.rtsoft.com/ib3/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wow.gif
