Distribution of new ports
Is there any chance that 3D Realms might distribute the new ROTT ports? If nothing else, it would make a nice bonus for a future game *hint hint* [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

Define "distribute". Do you mean put them on a CD and sell them? No, we're not interested in that.

We'll link to them; that kind of thing, but we're not a fan mod distributor. [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

I didn't mean distributing the mods, but simply distributing a basic port of ROTT to Windows or Linux, so that people who couldn't play ROTT otherwise would have a chance.

I'm guessing that 3D Realms wouldn't do this, but I can always hope, can't I?

How about hosting compiled executables on your web site? The ROTT fans could download them from 3DR instead of some obscure website.

<font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial">What I think he's saying is once a simple port is established, you may think of distributing it on the CD that you sell in your online store (maybe in a "goodies" folder). Nevertheless I seriously doubt this will happen.. Just buy the game and download the port when one is released.
