Some time ago I used the Pig Cop with the riot shield for my own personal mod. However, I added lighting effects to it from the gun. I see that there's now a newer version of it with a helmet. I'll add my lighting effects to this new one and upload it, that is if the original creator doesn't mind... (not sure who it is).

But I'm not sure when I'll get around to it.

In fact, here's the firing frames that predate the helmet. There's only 3 frames so it will be super easy to just clone the effects onto the new one, that is if people actually like the lighting effects...

I am the author of both, the helmet of the second version it's from sebabdukeboss20's riot cop. The base version it's even used in the AMC TC. You can update the lighting effect of either, this could also interest as aesthetic improvement to the next AMC release.

Some things I messed around with - maybe they'll come in handy.

Mike, do you think you could make an animation of Duke's hand raising the cigar from off-screen and putting it in his mouth? The animation would be reversible, too. This is something I would like to use for Alien Armageddon. The cigar would help make Duke's hud look different from Bombshell's.

Got my hands full at the moment, I'm afraid. You might be able to work something out with some clever hand graphics use, though

What makes you think Shelly doesn't smoke cigars?
Or is she more of a chew/snuff person?

I managed to add for the original game, the textures, the monsters and the sounds of the PSX and Caribbean version. Do you think they can be added here?

These are not variants created by me, but already existing content.

don't know about the psx version, but probably not the caribbean assets. Randy might run off and tell his mommy.

I thought the issue with Caribbean was they didn't own the rights for it?

How about NW assets? :lol:

Nobody cares about nw. people have been ripping the art from that and making mods for years. The status of that company is even more obscure, though the publisher was wizardsworks.
It's status quo to rip off the poorly perceived step-child commercial addon, even though it is just as "illegal" to pirate that abandon-ware, as well as the other two more popular ones.

nobody knows who owns the copyrights / publishing rights anymore. The games went out of print, the game companies ceased to exist. The catch is, if someone digs an old contract up from under a file cabinet in a random basement in New Jersey that says "X" has the rights to a percentage of royalties from sales, or publishing rights, then who ever is selling or distributing the "abandonware" can find themselves in some legal and financial difficulties. That random piece of paper is good for 95 years after the softwares were first published & printed.

This is the reasoning behind Randy having megaton pulled from steam.
His intention was to remove competition from his WT release.
But he screwed everyone because now, no one can publish the addons.

Megaton was on steam for a few years and nobody came forward with a C&D or claiming they were owed any royalties from sales. Nobody ever will. It was a bullshit move by a bullshit artist.

I only bring up not posting the caribbean assets because you might get the attention from some ass-clown at gearbox (they watch the content on this site) - I don't know the legal ramifications and responsibilities that would bring, but creating distractions in the middle of the production of ion maiden isn't a good game-plan. Maybe blowing it a bit out of proportion, but it's not really worth finding out. Chances are a mod was just nuke the post after they noticed it, or somebody complained, and that would be the end of it.

Given the general mess, I did well to ask the question. Personally, I care about NW.

Didn't Atari owns the Wizardworks catalog now?
The only person who can tell anything about the legal status of NW is Joe Wilcox, the head of Sillysoft at the time. However, it took him (or Voidpoint) many years to dig up any info about the status of Deadly Kiss for SW, so yeah, it's not really worth it...

allegedly they own the publishing rights - but that branch of atari is also defunct and no longer operational (since 2004).


as far as I can tell:
Nobody seems to be able to find the original contracts between the copyright holder and the publisher. Nobody can say if there were any clauses, limitations, or royalty rights.

mere speculation:
if atari turned the lights on in their wizardworks holdings, knocked the dust off their library, and started digitally printing the addons, someone could still come out later and claim royalties due.
If were simply atari owning the publishing rights, Randy probably would have secured them by now, or at least blamed them so he doesn't bear any responsibility for his stupid business maneuverings.

Find Anthony Campiti, or who ever was running wizardworks at the time. Probably get less answers than people got from Joe Wilcox.

Campiti owns Sunstorm, not Wizworks.

From what I find out, WizardWorks was runned by a man named Paul Rinde. He was mentioned as CEO and co-founder of WizardWorks in a number of periodicals. He left Wizworks/Atari in 2004 or so. In 2005, he was one of the founders of Destineer Corporation.

too subtle?

Campiti might be able to answer questions about the contract between Sunstorm and wizardworks.

But the question really was - will anyone get in trouble for posting Duke Caribbean assets?

Is there a replacement for Duke's hand when he uses a keycard i.e. replaces it with Duke using a regular key by thrusting it and turning it?

the answer is - megaton was pulled from steam. Supposedly for distributing the addons that they didn't own the rights to.

Abondonware isn't 'legal' to distribute, but there's little chance anyone will get in trouble for it.
Afaik, everyone who purchased megaton still has it in their library, and no one has come forward to make a claim for royalties on the sales of megaton.

I can only suggest that this is not the place to distribute the material - doing so will most likely be frowned upon by the admin.

Thank you for all those informations. I will not post anything here. I'll do a special topic on my project, or I'll be able to offer content.

It doesn't matter anyway, this thread isn't for ripped resources but rather original and/or semi-original edited works.
