yeah i'm the bad guy. i'd be lying if i said i never expected this to happen...

i knew when i started using assets from the Duke HRP that any foundation i had for using them was on shaky ground. in my paltry defense i justified it by telling myself that everyone who played it probably had a copy of duke nukem 3d laying around... regardless, if 3d realms and the makers of the HRP send me an official notice to cease and desist, i won't have any problems with that. if 3d realms pushes for the HRP guys to give me permission, then I would be ecstatic! but that's unlikely. anyway, it's been a fun ride.

PEACE

Ahh... Thats why his post made no sense. I know that community a little bit. Now by stealing community models, you mean he claimed them as his own? I enjoy eDuke with the HRP pack as much as some other Duke fans. I've even used a few of the assets for personal fun use as well.

..So hypothetically if I wanted to use the freely available community models and assets floating around the net in a non profit gpl project I was creating for fun, asking permission and of course stating where they came from with proper credits and links... Is that stealing as well?

i never claimed them as my own. and leilei or cheapalert or whatever is always harassing people over supposed GPL violations. i've been up front about everything i did from the beginning. i only deleted his comment because it's completely unnecessary. besides it was on the downloads section. lei doesn't even like it when i ask for help outside of the jobs section. he's a bit anal. plus the mod isn't "fun" to him

i'm still leaving it up till i hear officially from 3drealms. when i first read the license, i understood it to read, as long as i have a copy of duke nukem 3d atomic edition around somewhere, i can play this. so go buy a copy at the gog.com link, it's $5.99 for pete's sake
