Well, since my last forum post got absolutely no responses I doubt this one will either but it's definitely worth a shot if it means TCE's legacy can continue.

So the very talented people working on Enemy Territory: Legacy, an open source fix up and continuation of ET were asked that if they were given the source code for True Combat: Elite could they fix any issues and bring it officially to Enemy Territory: Legacy version of the engine with all the fixes and improvements it brings and they agreed to doing so.

So I ask, True Combat Elite was released 10 years ago, aside from early updates and fixes the project has been left on its own since then and hasn't received any support or updates since then, at one point the downloads went down and it was almost vaporware at that point. After all this time can we finally get the code into the hands of people who can fix it up and get it back into the limelight again because this mod is still unmatched by any game today and I would hate for it to be left in the state it's in now if it has a strong chance of its legacy being continued. This wouldn't be a "Continuation" of the game but at least any game issues would be addressed and it would be optimized to run like butter with ET:L's setup, that alone can make a big difference.

So too long didn't read, can whoever has the source code meet up with the people from ET:L and work out something so we can get TCE out there once again and all fixed up nice? Keep in mind, I am strictly talking about TCE here, we could bring CQB over as well but the focus would be TCE. This game NEEDS to be resurrected and I can't think of a better way of doing so other than the original team coming back

Thank you, hope this actually goes somewhere.

I was curious about the source too one time. To the best of my knowledge it's not gonna happen.

Also the once thriving TCE community during covid 1st wave in Discord has been shattered into multiple different Discord servers due to people not getting along with each other.

Maybe I don't know anything about anything but I find it odd that instead of giving your creation a chance in a modern era you're instead letting it rot and become obsolete.

Don't get me wrong, I get not wanting to just hand over your hard work to somebody else but we're talking 10 years after release in a very old branch of the engine with a dead playerbase. If it were my project and someone came along offering to not only fix it up and get it running on a more stable and improved engine so old players can enjoy it in higher fidelity AND get it into the hands of newer audiences then I would absolutely jump on that.

Who knows, maybe there's a more complex backstory to why coroner hasn't released it ever, maybe everything was overwritten for CQB and the original source doesn't exist anymore. No one knows except for the heads of the team but as it stands I don't think any official explanation has been given so we're just left to fill in the gaps and this doesn't help anything.

Communication is key.

Welp, guess the lack of any official response is the only response I guess I needed to know, TC:E will always remain in the state it is.

And that is truly sad. I miss this game.
