Would 3DR Release extra actor stuff?
When ROTT was still in development, but moving close to release, it used to have a heap of alternate actors (such as female guards). These were eventually dropped though to the memory restrictions of the time, although they were left in late enough to appear in the manual and game credits.

Well, with those 4MB memory limitations far behind us, and with the source code for ROTT being around for quite some time. Would 3D Realms consider releasing the data files for those actors so that they can be added back into the game.

This all hinges on the assumption that you still have those files gathering dust somewhere, and that some copyright issue isn't going to thwart the idea, but I thought that I may as well ask.

I thought I wanted a career, turns out I just wanted the pay checks.

Can't release what isn't there - those art files were never completed. Sure, there might be some raw work somewhere (good luck finding it), but even if we did find it, it's incomplete.

There is a frame of each in the reg version data file as they were used in the rather lenghty credit sequence you saw if you completed the game the proper way.
