    This is one of those games crying out for a remake.

    It might make for a better experience than trying to get the originals running at this point.

    Is there really a point?

    Why have an HRP or fancy renderer for an old game at all?

    Some people enjoy taking old games and applying a new coat to them.

    The originals were poorly done and look bad.

    In general, ROTT needs an up-to-date port. The hottest candidate to achieve this is probably ECWolf, but considering its slow development, I doubt it will get ROTT support any time soon. Right now it only supports Wolfenstein 3D, Spear of Destiny and Noah's Ark.

    If you grab a nightly build, it can also run Planet Strike. It recognizes RoTT files and launches the game, but almost nothing works. But there is some preliminary RoTT support there.

    Couldn't that be done today if all the source images are out there somewhere?

    but you still think he made the right decision with conflicting licenses.
    You are supporting his decisions (vehemently)
    That kinda means you are an authority on his decisions.

    I was speaking about the specific choices he made in his code.

    I made it clear that I was speaking later about a generality.

    Those are two very different things and you're calling me a liar? Don't do that. Ad hominem attacks don't get you anywhere.

    ICD seemed confident that his use of FMOD was fine, but as I Google it, it does seem like he may have been wrong. I thought GPLv2 allowed you to link to a closed source library, but it looks like that may only be the case if you own the copyright to all the code to put in a special exception to the code. GPL software can load a completely closed-source plugin, but you can't link to a closed source library without the copyright holders signing off on that. I did recall other GPL projects using FMOD, but they probably had the copyright holders sign off on it here. But ICD did not have Hendricks' permission so it was a no go here.
