    dude its a fork, not an announcement that nexuiz (GPL) is dead.

    LordHavoc stated that the console version does not borrow any code from Nexuiz GPL because they couldn't get consent of every contributor. It seems there is nothing illegal afterall.

    The original Nexuiz didn't start open source. It was a commercial endeavor, just like the console version.

    The GPL is infectious, even on a non-Nexuiz project like Capsized, they crusade on it regardless.

    They released a new version 0.6 of Xonotic with a lot of nice features: http://www.xonotic.org/2012/03/xonot...now-available/

    In the meanwhile Nexuiz died ( http://www.alientrap.org/games/nexuiz ) and what is left is the commercial Nexuiz clone.

    Unfortunately that game "Nexuiz" is not related to the old opensource linux game at all (apart from the Name which has been sold by a retired dev).

    I was pretty certain they would keep the DarkPlaces engine, that's why I'm surprised.

    Re: Xonotic

    Why aren't more people playing this? 0.6 is the best FPS game I've played since UT2k4, the netcode has improved tremendously and the graphics still blow me away.


    FYI I play as jive

    Are there many people playing Xonotic. I don't want to download it though if it only has a few people
