A Loki Timeline

January 31st, 2002 by Alkini

Matt Matthews, with the help of the rest of the LG staff and some ex-employees of Loki, has put together a Loki timeline. The timeline is an attempt to document every major event in Loki’s past, starting with the announcement of SDL and the Launch of the Loki Website, through today, when Loki is officially ceasing operations. If you have any additions or corrections to the timeline, please email us so we can make the timeline as accurate and comprehensive as we can. Thanks to all of the contributors for their great help in making this possible.

Update (by Matt) For those of you having difficulties reading the page, I have created an alternative page for older or non-compliant browsers. Currently I am trying to redirect Netscape 4.x and IE that is older than IE 5.5. If you are still having problems, please let me know. Browser detection script from the Mozilla project.

    on 31 December 2001, in the recap of the games released, you forgot to mention Tribes 2.

    This should probably be directed on the SDL mailing list, but on Sept 6 200, it says Loki and Qt entered a partnership to add Qt support in SDL. Did this ever happen? I mean did the support ever get added?

    btw, the page loads ok on IE 5.5. I had trouble at work with IE<5.

    By the way, great job compiling this stuff.

    I was wondering what is planned to do about any of the unifinished work on some of the things mentioned. Ie, Deus Ex, Patches to some released games.

    Some of these at least from the timeline said they were pretty close to being bug free.

    Would Ion Storm be willing to release the linux version?

    Unlike SDL, OpenAL is maintained by Creative Labs and Loki. Now that one of them is gone, does that mean OpenAL will be nothing more than yet another dead-end interface for Sound Blaster compatible drivers? After all, despite its free status, only one sound card company joins it. Besides, SB Live/Audigy already supports AC’97, which is supported by many more manufacturers than OpenAL.

    This time it opened a FULL PAGE SITE.

    First of all, the company behind this, ugo I believe is obviously ready to do anything to earn one $, so I guess they really really need cash, so i guess they will disappear soon, so try to find an alternative host quickly.

    second, it really pisses me off, I go to dozens of site, this is the only place where I have to stand this. So please try to find an alternative site anyway.

    Why is everyone complaining about IE being the only browser to work? Why are so many people reading this site using IE? Last I checked this was, and Loki was a supporter/porter of Linux games. In case its not obvious, the source of my confusion is, why are people reading from IE in windows?
