here is an idea I have been thinking about of over the last few days. Please
let me know what you think by voting below.
As you probably already know, John Carmack released the source code for Quake
II. What I was thinking of was to create a site where anyone on the net can
convert the units to pascal/delphi code and submit it to the site. The
conversion will be one file at a time. There will be a checkout/checkin process
to prevent duplication of work and a forum where people can discuss aspects of
it or problems they encounter.
This will mean that at the end of the day we have a really cool 3D engine
written in Delphi. If you are not interested in the engine, there is still the
BSP loading code, Quake 2 model loading code and other code like multiplayer
over the internet. There are lots of useful bits of code that I am sure lots of
Delphi programmers would like to use.
