  • Daniele “Balrog994″ Collantoni from the GemRB project sent this in:
  • GemRB is an Open-Source Infinity Engine Emulator working with Unix/Linux, MacOsX, and Windows. The engine purpose was to port games like Baldur’s Gate to the Linux platform, but now the project is growing.

    The new scope is to make an engine more sophisticated than the real Infinity Engine from BioWare. We are planning to implement various add-ons to make it more versatile and expandible.

    “More Ballistics Screenshots” gets main headline, but the news about GemRB gets stuck in /dev/urandom.

    If you’re going to put version release information here, you should have included WineX and GtkRadiant instead of giving them their own spots in the news.

    Just my 00000010 cents.

    [i]Boson 0.9.1, an OpenGL C&C/Starcraft-ish RTS game[/i]

    Boson does not resemble Starcraft in any way. Remember the moral of Freecraft Project, mimick your enemies without giving any shadow of reference to your enemies all-the-while supporting similar or compatible protocol.

    Are you people trying to jinx Boson? It’s too late to replace now, only ammend.
