Microsoft Research(they develop games?) has released the source for a game called Allegiance. Personally, I''ve never even heard of it, but the trailers etc.. at the game site look cool. The game site is at http://www.microsoft.com/games/allegiance/multimedia.htm, while the source can be downloaded from http://research.microsoft.com/research/allegiance/. The zip is 500 megs, so 56K people probably shouldn''t bother. -- AnkhSVN - A Visual Studio .NET Addin for the Subversion version control system.

I actually think I considered buying this once.

Upon looking at the game feature I though, "Hey, I looked at this once." Then the name came back to me and I relized (well, think) I looked into this game once?

Can we get it free now?

Clearly one of Microsofts rebelious subordinates... MS giving out source code, who woulda thought? (I''ll probably get some coomment over this last statement...)

I was a little curious, so I started downloading it... But I was only getting 56K speeds, and I''m on broadband... So I said forget it. Not that important to look at it.

I like the way the EULA text is a stupidly small font you can''t actually read properly...

Anyway, I remember thinking this game looked interesting when it first came out, but lacking any sensible net connection at the time I never bothered to buy it.


Anyway... this looks interesting. Downloading now.

I''m just wondering whether there''s media in that zip as well(500 megs of source???).


Yeah it includes the media: models, textures, sounds, etc.

I still haven''t been able to download that damn thing. I get horrible download speeds(~8KB/s), and the last time I tried the FTP server went down 5 minutes before it was done. Grr.
