As far as copyright goes, Witch owns the idea for ISW, so if you wanted to make a copy of it you'd have to buy the rights from him. Which has been tried before. Last I heard, Mech had made an offer of $2000. But hey, you can go for it anyway if you like :)

If you manage that bit then I expect you'll find support. If you don't... we've been through this before on this forum, and you wouldn't get support for a game which breaks copyright...

I once spoke to witch and he said that the game was open to be used by anyone as long as credit is given and the game is kept free however if you make members start paying you would have to contact him and work out some kind of agreement as by making money using his ideas and not paying royalties would break copyright

i have his email address if you need to contact him, just ask an i'll pm him but don't expect a reply, he tends to ignore things like that

If you are adding any kind of extra feature system which will bring in money then you will have to pay royalties, unless it comes straight out your pocket you will have to pay a %

it might actually be an idea to get to work instead of telling people about it cause everyone says it and then doesn't do it and you will get peoples hope up and then if you fail...well you get the idea

Nappy's right there. No point in getting hopes up, it only hurts people more when the plan fails.
Whining crybabies will be used as willing target practice, and they will be happy about it.

If not, they will have a blind date with the painful end of my gun barrel.

Well, what you need to do is get WitchFinder, MrTea, Or Bob Dylan to give you the source code and you can customize and then host it on a server

Haha, it's kind obvious this site isnt a daily checked thing.....but Nooby, hows the game negotiation comin, ive started playin WOW, but i yearn for the days of ISW, prolly just like everyone else.

If you failed, no worries...u only dashed the hopes of a few individuals...but for others who might make this claim...please please have ur shit straight before you post and get our hopes up.

BTW sorry that my first post in the reunion forum is such a damn asshole one...but im sick of lookin for a game to replace ISW haha :(
