So....

I realize the player base is rather small to begin with, but I was wondering if there is any chance that Epi would be restarted. Or if the source code will be released.

In one of the older thread's there is a mention of older Epi codes that didn't include the complicated building system, I'd like to play a server running that code.

I wouldn't mind it as well, but there are numerous bug fixes needed to be addressed in the code. To which, I believe Q said he didn't want anything to do with as it was Morv's code. And Morv has been MIA for several years, presumably no longer interested in having a hand in the upkeep of QMT.

In addition, Q said something about the code having security issues. If those things were fixed, I'd be all for Epi as I played it way back when and loved it.

So very small chance of Morv coming back to run Epi?

And the Epi code is not open sourced correct? So even if someone who knew what they were doing was willing to fix the bugs/security issues they couldn't?

Unfortunately, only Q can answer those... :/

At this point, I honestly doubt Morv would mind if I released the code - he was planning on cleaning it up and releasing it himself, but he clearly hasn't gotten around to doing so (and likely won't in the foreseeable future), and I've already looked through enough of the code to get a general idea of exactly what it was he wanted to clean up. I'll probably post it in this forum rather than on the Downloads page, just so that people don't mistakenly try to run it and get their server hacked.

I posted the code for all 3 games last year in the "Epicurus Code Downloads" sticky at the top of this forum, and that's all I'm willing to do - I'm not going to risk the security of this site to host a game I don't even understand how to properly run.
