Razorblade cut this shit out!

Post by smoth »

Mega Annihilation Escalation seems to have lifted these units from TAWP and TA:Esc:

armcerb, armdread, armforge, armmbt, armmcv, armolympus, armorion, armsiege, armtech, armtrmph, corbeh, corforge, cormcv, cormmth, corskynet, cortech, cortyrnt, corulab, corvind. This is literally almost all units from the Level 3-4 factories in TA:Esc, including multiple versions of the same unit.

as well as also including stuff from cnc ta and world domination.

Seriously, stop this.

I think WTO:R/MW where a better idea then MA(E)....

Also some of your listed unit is not the only one who appears in MA(E)...

I thought this was open source and copy left,
not closed source and copy right, do you want patents with that too ?
sure he could have asked first but why, its not like its for sale
he is not making any money from this, so why does it matter ?
you could ask him to give all authors credit that i can agree on.
Lets just assume he removed all the "stolen" files, and lets say
it amounted to only 10% but all those was vital to the game play
that would be cyber terrorism to forcefully destroy someone else's game
it is not like it makes your game less good or bad, maybe you think
nobody plays MA or ever will, well let me tell you how many hours i played
the MA game series, its more then any other game mod.
I played many hundreds of hours.

May I remind everybody that TA Escalation is not a spring mod, it's an OTA project, for OTA people, with OTA installs

http://taesc.tauniverse.com/

Even ignoring the Atari IP, it is not a spring project, it is not copyleft, and it's not GPL, and the people running it have made it crystal clear as demonstrated by posts from prominent active members such as The Registered One

If my work of 5 years dies the ip-death, after i contacted konami- none of the shall live, i take them with me! They shall be burried at gundams feet like the slaves of the paraohs, doomed to serve vine in the afterworld. And if there are no lawyers, not even ip-holders to kill this off, i ll do it myself!

Bring the poisoned dagger and the snakes! Set the castle on fire! Murder the moral relativity! If i shall not have hold of this kingdom, none of them shall have, lets reenact king lear! till one of the old ip holders shows up and says "WTF, that was hobbystuff from ten years ago!" ;)

I rip off, no, i do not know what you are talking about, i did not create the mod, if loving the game i played for over 100 hours makes me a fanboy so be it, i dont care about copy right or who owns what, i leave that to lawyers and know it alls's, and i don't care, if he made someone angry and acted inpolite is not my problem.
