Two blows to the project today...it seems that the mod Edge-DM was originally known as Quake:Source...so this "original project" isn't as original as I once thought it was (of course, they were only covering the DeathMatch portion of Q2 and Q3).
That was the minor blow.
As it turns out, the reason behind their name change was the fact that Todd Hollenshead, one of my personal idols and the CEO of iD Games, sent them a nice email notifying them of the fact that they were infringing the copyrights of iD.
Here's what it comes down to:
* IF I get the same email, I will fully cooperate with iD.
* There will be a name change, but not so much of a content change.
* There will be no real content change because a lot of the content is BASED on Quake. We're redoing everything. Levels, Maps, Textures, Sounds, Weapons, Etcetera.
I've been afraid it might come down to this...but if it does, it won't be the end of the project by any means. I'm doing this project in homage to the greatness that was Quake (hell, I've been playing that more than Half-Life 2 recently).
Oh well, let it come if it comes...but it won't die.
