Hey ModDB,

So after the successful release of v0.1.1 and the quick turnaround patch that was v0.1.2, we're ready to announce something pretty big for all you Source developers out there: Lethal Stigma is now entirely open source!

Hosted on Google Code, anyone will now be able to download the source code for Lethal Stigma as well as any and all development/pre-release game files. We chose Google Code because it a free and easy solution that also allows folks to use subversion software, a must-have for every developer.

You might be asking why we did this for a project that is still actively being developed. After all, you usually only see mods do this when they are on hold, dead, completed, or nearing completion. Well, we here at Agent Red Productions promised we would always strive to give back to the Source modding community any way we can, and this is our thank you for making Lethal Stigma a success.

Anyhow, here's our brand-new page on Google Code:
Code.google.com

If you don't know how to use subversion, you can always just browse the source files and have a look around, but if you're really interested and plan to do a lot with the source code, you should probably learn as soon as possible.

In other news, you can expect another release that includes bug fixes and several new upgrades in a few weeks. We're still getting bug reports everyday and are logging them to ensure they are fixed in the next update, so keep them coming.

Show your support! If you have yet to visit and register on our website or join the official LS Steam group, please do so! Both are an excellent way to communicate with the development team directly and keep in touch with those who also enjoy playing Lethal Stigma.

Thanks everyone and have fun. =D

Nice.
Btw, do you have to make your project open source to get the svn free from google code?

Thanks, and yes, you can only post open source projects on Google Code.

if you don't want to release your sourcecode during the development phase (or not at all) and still want free SVN you may try Origo.ethz.ch =)

Releasing a mod open source is a HUGE gift. Giving your whole effort for everyone to check out just to help people to learn new tricks and stuff from the code is admirable.

Can't see why it would be a turnoff.
