Shadow Warrior old Betas?

Postby Corvin » Wed Mar 01, 2017 8:22 am

So Since the people(Hendricks, TerminX) that where working on bringing Duke3D Betas to public consumption failed at getting them out in a timely manner(1 year and 3 months), and there for failed(gearbox won the full rights to Duke), other than hoarding the material for themselves....

What happen to the Shadow Warrior Beta's (or other Build Game beta material)?

Did 3DRealms loose the rights as well to those games and material?

If not why don't we have that material released as promised yet?

A couple weeks ago I emailed Devolver and notified them that Hendricks and TX have the SW betas.

They replied (damn near immediately) and said they'd love to have the betas released and they wanted Hendricks' contact info. I gave them Hendricks' email and vice versa.

I don't know if they'e contacted each other or not.

Well thanks to you I see they squeezed some of the alpha/betas from their clutches.

Yep, Hendricks and TX are honestly the worst people to try and deal with thanks to their "I'm God's gift to the Build Engine" mentality.

I went around them, contacted 3dr and Devolver.
A week later we get betas! :D

That's exactly what happen!! :)
Someone should verify that Devolver got all the alpha/beta versions.

The only downside is you get the beta's with Shadow Warrior Classic on steam. Meaning you need steam and an account with them. But I think SW Classic is free and the alpha/betas are too. Thanks to 3DR and the guys behind Shadow Warrior Redux thats on steam as well, just not free.

We'll have to grab the betas when they all come out and host them somewhere free of steam.

I wonder why the A/Bs have stopped coming out, I know there's more to be released. Whats he doing / holding on to them for?

There's a beta that needs decoding I think too, as mentioned in a note that was in one of the archives.

Probably because he feels burned about the DK business or something. I have no clue.

He promised he'd at least try to compile the uncompiled stuff from the source codes etc that he has. That will at least allow the maps to be run on a very close version to the one that's there.

But obviously nothing happens and he doesn't reply to any e-mails but the acussation of the hack that he had not touched the site I talked about.

Is he still holding out / hording on the rest of the files?

What about the source codes too, I'm sure there is stuff in them that may / can help other SW programmers, that material should come out aswell.
