'Alien Arena 2008' Announced

Filed under
Gaming

COR Entertainment announced Alien Arena 2008, a complete overhaul and update of the core game. Every player model has been replaced, nearly every weapon model, and nearly one half of the arenas. Sixteen new maps in total to be exact!

The client has a number of new enhancements, features, and optimizations, that not only have enhanced the visual quality, but increased performance dramatically, as well using fewer resources. Existing features such as normalmapping have been dramatically improved, and made to run much faster. Greater detail was now possible in maps, models and skins, and yet overall performance is still up over 30% from the final release of Alien Arena 2007.

Alien Arena 2008 will be released for Windows, Linux, and yes, a Mac port is nearly completed as well. For the first time, Alien Arena will be able to run on OSX! To get you ready, nine new screenshots and a video have been released showcasing a portion of the new content and game!

Licensing FUD and Licensing Advice

  • On the Law and Your Open Source License [Ed: Black Duck is just a parasite selling proprietary software by bashing FOSS]
    "Looking back five or ten years, companies managing open source risk were squarely focused on license risk associated with complying with open source licenses," notes a report from Black Duck Software. Fast-forward to today, and the rules and processes surrounding open source licensing are more complex than ever.
  • Explaining the source code requirement in AGPLv3
    This condition was intended to apply mainly to what would now be considered SaaS deployments, although the reach of "interacting remotely through a computer network" should perhaps be read to cover situations going beyond conventional SaaS. The objective was to close a perceived loophole in the ordinary GPL in environments where users make use of functionality provided as a web service, but no distribution of the code providing the functionality occurs. Hence, Section 13 provides an additional source code disclosure requirement beyond the object code distribution triggered requirement contained in GPLv2 Section 3 and GPLv3 and AGPLv3 Section 6.
