Free doesn't mean open source. It's in the commercial games vote.

just installed the NVIDIA drivers this weekend, to put them to the test I installed bzflag, all I can say is that this game rivals Quake 1 in coolness!! (thats a compliment coming from me) plus its got better multiplayer functionality

if you like quake1 (the origonal) try quakeforge !!!!!
its quake, re-written, but still compatable with the old quake, and uses the same texture files but takes advantages of kikass openGl lighting, smoke and other kewl effects, plus, monster models have been smother out, the look better, walk better, die better... GREAT.

does quakeforge count as open source ? the origonal was commercial, but the re-vamp was made from the released source code... ?

Where can I get this wonderful quakeforge :P?


Nevermind, I found it. And I am compiling it right now.

Second Edit:

It seems to be installed but I can't run it. There IRC chatroom is out of service and they have no forums.

I would like to vote but... I want to vote for Doom Legacy... the best open source game engine I have played for the past two years.

If I cant have doom legacy then I would probably vote for : GnuChess( only one of the choices I have played)
