06:20:43@blzut3:maniacsvault.netBlzut3ECWolf is now on Git. Formal announcement coming after I fix the infrastructure since right now it's basically just a straight repo conversion

00:38:12@blzut3:maniacsvault.netBlzut3Looks like Bitbucket quietly got rid of the rss feature while letting existing urls work. That sucks

18:32:32@blzut3:maniacsvault.netBlzut3Why are Git GUIs just so filled with caveats? The whole reason I want one is to browse around in history. Just tried Gitkraken and they apparently have a hard coded number of commits they'll show. Guess that tool is useless to me
20:59:46@NeuralStunner:matrix.orgNeuralStunnerOof

02:06:24@blzut3:maniacsvault.netBlzut3GitEye does this weird thing where it has to create a project file in the repo directory and is generally pretty slow when flipping through commits

21:05:01@NeuralStunner:matrix.orgNeuralStunnerAre timed powerups implemented at all?

20:20:04@NeuralStunner:matrix.orgNeuralStunnerWould be neat to see new Steam library art for S3DNA that looks like a SNES cart
20:34:26@NeuralStunner:matrix.orgNeuralStunnerAww, this person did art for it: https://www.reddit.com/r/steamgrid/comments/db4f3f/c_not_animated_but_heres_240_covers_for_a_variety/

08:01:44@blzut3:maniacsvault.netBlzut3I can talk to Piko Interactive about adding something officially
23 Nov 2019
20:15:08@NeuralStunner:matrix.orgNeuralStunnerSince it came up elsewhere: Ever look into trying to get S3DNA on GOG again?
30 Nov 2019
08:53:47@blzut3:maniacsvault.netBlzut3I have not
08:54:12@blzut3:maniacsvault.netBlzut3As far as I'm concerned GOG is free to contact Piko Interactive if they want it

15:33:28@vilhelmgray:matrix.orgvilhelmgrayI'm trying to track down the current state of the license of the original Wolfenstein 3D game assets (the artwork, not the source code). I'm hoping someone here might know.
15:33:51@vilhelmgray:matrix.orgvilhelmgrayI'm aware that this is the license when the source code was released: https://github.com/id-Software/wolf3d/blob/master/WOLFSRC/README/LICENSE.DOC
15:35:16@vilhelmgray:matrix.orgvilhelmgrayThat license doesn't permit modifications to the artwork or game assets, but I suspect this changed at a later point as was the case for the Doom series.
15:36:49@vilhelmgray:matrix.orgvilhelmgrayFor example, Doom was rereleased later under an EULA that has a "Permitted New Creations" section explicitly allowing mods to the game assets: https://gitweb.gentoo.org/repo/gentoo.git/plain/licenses/DOOM-COLLECTORS-EDITION
15:37:27@vilhelmgray:matrix.orgvilhelmgrayI'm having trouble finding a similar EULA for Wolfenstein 3D. Does anyone know if one exists?
15:50:06@vilhelmgray:matrix.orgvilhelmgrayAlternatively, if someone has a copy of the license included with the GOG or Steam release of the game, I suspect that will be the latest version.
16:50:52@blzut3:maniacsvault.netBlzut3You'd probably have to hunt down original disk images, since I'm sure like Doom it was distributed under multiple boilerplate EULAs
16:52:09@blzut3:maniacsvault.netBlzut3however I doubt that Wolf3D has a similiar clause since the game has no modding support (changing one graphic requires redistributing all the others) so it's likely that id just turned a blind eye to it all
16:55:41@blzut3:maniacsvault.netBlzut3There are definitely quotes out there from id that suggests that Doom's modding support is a result of the Wolf3D community reverse engineering everything to make mods in spite of everything
17:13:37@vilhelmgray:matrix.orgvilhelmgrayYeah that's what I'm suspecting too that it's not really explicitly allowed but id software decided not to stop the modding since it ended up being better business that way
