Jeff_Katarn;5483587The biggest problem is that LucasArts has the rights over the Jedi Knight series and didn't let Raven release the source code.
In fact, it's probably not LA, but Activision, that are the sinners.
I am not giving up on the SP SDK possibility.. ever. My belief is that it's all about giving them incentive enough to make it, and I wholely believe that this is possible.
We had one entry with Ravyn, but he sadly does not work for Raven anymore.
We've occasionally been contacting Mike Gummelt, who was/is a programmer at Raven. It's sounded positive but nothing has come from it yet.
Let me know the next time you are getting in contact with him Raz0r. I'd like to add in me $.02 on why the SP SDK is a good idea. It'd bring me back to the game.
And a lot of others too... :)
It's not going to happen. I'm like 99.999% sure of that by now. I tried in the past to get it and failed. It's probably faster and more likely to happen to just rewrite the game from scratch... which is neither fast nor likely to happen.
That said, about 95% of the single player works in MP, with the exception of e.g. cameras, different AI and saving, amongst others.
if you were to rewrite the game from scratch it wouldnt be the id tech 3 engine any more (i think)
It wouldn't be as easy as you say :D
