Default High Noon with Smokin' Guns

Hi

Quake 3 mod. Pretty interesting. Anyone wants to package?

http://www.linux.com/feature/142226

"Since the release of the Quake 3 engine source code in summer 2005 a
lot of modifications and spin-offs have emerged. One such spin-off,
Smokin' Guns (formerly known as Western Quake 3), is all about classical
Wild West themes: big rifles and revolvers, wailing steel guitars, bank
robberies, and smooth talking. It's a game you don't want to miss"


Rahul

Not exactly opensource I'm afraid, see:
http://www.smokin-guns.net/viewtopic.php?t=366
http://www.smokin-guns.net/viewtopic.php?t=721

Someone could wip together an autodownloader launcher, as they seem to use an
unmodified q3a engine.


Also Rahul, I really appreciate your postings about potentially interesting
games, but to get a lot more value out of this postings could you in the future
please:


1) Do a quick license check
2) If it passes one at it to the games wishlist on the wiki:
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/SIGs/Games/WishList

Thanks & Regards,

Hans

This sounds like they haven't really thought about it much. Maybe we
could reach out and see if they are willing to relicense?

Alright. Will do.

The first step would be to contact the original author, (Iron Claw on the
forum), without his permission to relicense his original work on which
Smokin'Guns is based we're not going anywhere.


Feel free to contact him about this.

Regards,

Hans
