Ohhhh, ok. Now it makes sense! It's a great mod and I thought that it would have been put this site by now! :P
I'm the one who put the http://www.aethiamud.org/mpmp site up. Actually, it IS version 1.4D, not 1.4C. When I put it up, I mistakenly thought the version was 1.4C. However, it works perfectly with other ppl who have 1.4D, not to mention it has the 1.4D logo in it. I'll go ahead and update the site accordingly.
And no there's not any official site up yet. Legally, the creator's permission is not required, because (a) MPMP itself is an unauthorized derivative of an already copyrighted software release, and (b) there is no license document packaged with MPMP which explicitly forbids distribution of the package without permission. Being a fan of the GNU GPL anyways, coupled with the fact that the author has for months neglected to setup a working download site for it despite a very high demand, I see no ethical complications or legal complications for having the site up.
Just wanted to clarify that, as well as the fact that I spent at least a couple hours of my time putting that site up and sacrificing some server bandwidth for it as a public service to you. Until the creator gets off his bum and finds a place to stick the file (I even offered him a temporary web account on my server, which he rather rudely declined), I strongly encourage anyone to distribute that package as you see fit =)
Again, I'll update that site so as to eliminate any confusion :)
Oh that does make sense, but it's still up to BCFiles whether they'll accept that excuse. What is GNU GPL? Thanks for the info too!
Hehe to clarify, that little rant wasn't directed toward BCfiles. If they prefer to maintain a policy of only putting things up with authors' permission, nothin' wrong with that. I was talking about other people sharing the file with others (like on a server, via kazaa, etc).
As for GNU GPL, it's a license commonly used by many "open source" distributions. http://www.aethiamud.org/gpl.txt
Oh so that's what it means! And sorry I didn't mean any offense by anything I said.
No offense taken :)
I was actually just making sure the BCfiles ppl didn't get offended by my little rant.
to answer a couple of questions...
1. its not an open source... i had permission from the modders who created and added to MPMP to host the files on Unimatrix ONLY.
2. We had site problems with Unimatrix's host company which went under
3. The new site will be up in a few days, where you can get all the files for 1.4D
4. I thought i declined you in a nice way, if you thought i declined you in a rude way then i owe you an apology. part of the problem is that my partner does not want any Unimatrix projects on other sites.
I hope this clears up a few things...
the new site for mpmp will be http://www.ugl.net/mpmp
I'm still uploading files and waiting for the domain name to become active....
YAY!!! My favorite mod is back now then lol! Thanks ya'll
its now hosted here while the other one comes up...
i tried to download version 1.4d of MPMP and i kept getting a music file called Bencounter.wma, i'm confused, any help would be nice.
