Jedi Knight: Dark Forces II Engine Source Code Release

123 Signatures Goal: 100

Over the previous 10 years, the community behind Star Wars Jedi Knight: Dark Forces II has innovated and created game-play, scenarios, content, and more for the game within a limited set of tools, and we continue to do so today. Due to the continued interest from the community in the game, and the fact that the technology driving Jedi Knight has become obsolete in terms of usable technology for a modern video-game product, a release of the Jedi Knight executable binary source is in the best interest of both LucasArts and the Jedi Knight community. Companies like id Software (Wolfenstein, Doom, Quake) have helped begin a trend of releasing executable source for their products, once the source code is no longer commercially useful. Other companies like 3D Realms (Duke Nukem 3D, Shadow Warrior, and others) have embraced this practice, and as a result, they have become even more driven by their communities in their past and present products. We, the Jedi Knight community, hope to see LucasArts embrace this practice as well, allowing the community to flourish and create new things that have never before been possible.

    As a programmer who started out coding COG scripts all those years ago, this would be a dream come true. We've been waiting for this. Please make it happen.

    We'd be able to do so much more, even though we've still managed to do so much this far through simple dedication alone.

    Allowing the long time fans to build with the bones will help keep the love of it alive for years to come.
