Breaking news, folks.

I'm in contact with CP and it seems all three of the developers would be alright with releasing the source code for us. It's very possible I'll get the source code for PtD after all, so we can start modifying it.

The problem for all this time was just... finding them and asking!

It's a crime that you can only give one brofist to a post.

If he delivers he should get a prestigious tag.

That said, we've probably got enough expertise around the codex to work something out assuming we get interested parties. I'll be happy to assist also, though my C skills are a little rusty (I'm assuming that's what the game will be written in).

I'm in.

Barbarians should not be as sceptic. Crom is clearly with the Codex on this one.

No one tells Barbarians how to behave.

Let's see the source code first but the path will probably be (assuming the plausible way it's coded WIN MSVC DirectX) :
* Attempt to recompile it for Windows with legacy toolchains
* Modernize the build systems by porting to CMake
* Make everything compile with multiple modern compilers on Windows
* Update legacy dependencies that we want to keep
* Port it to Linux through WineLib
* Evaluate and replace legacy/unwanted dependencies (DirectX or whatever will be in our way for instance, simple SDL+OpenGL should be the first step)
* Ditch WineLib
* Volunteer QA should start now
* Clean the code, fix the bugs
* Improve whatever shiny people will like (the nice to have, pleasant to code, but the easy part)

Some people in a hurry will probably provide shortcuts for gamers' enjoyment but IMO this is the solid path with the best quality result.

You want a game's source code, you have to pry it from its cold dead hands with IDA.

BTW I did do some digging for a couple of weeks, if anyone's interested I can send the IDA db. Also tried my hand at hooking stuff a la Temple+ but alas didn't get very far:
https://github.com/GrognardsFromHell/PreludePlus

Ah sweet sweet IDA (I have a licence at work but the free version is good enough for a WIN32 program)...
All those prospects of source code during the last years prevented me from launching it for this game, I optimistically believe that the source code will come out at some point :)

Yes but reversing and reimplementing from asm is a multi-year effort so...

After they reply to you, that's when you can say "in contact".

If just them looking/reading your email and not reply, it's NOT. That's the modern protocol in email, anyhow~

Anyway, i have my doubt you would be successful. If it's possible it would happen years ago. Even if you can really contact them by emails or else~ they will hem and haw and drive you around.
