Hi, does anyone have a copy of the old wpmud2 client that they can send me or post a link or something...
Also does anyone know how to get the seperate images out of it... prahaps for reuse in an updated client

Cheers in advance

I do have it, on my old computer. Unfortunately, the old computer is kinda grumpy, bit of old age and losing it's memory... but I might be able to get it online long enough to get the files off it.

However, you'll probably find that you can't just steal the work that was put into that client and would require written permission from the person who made it before you used any images from the file.

I have considered that, the best option I have thought of is to somehow reference the images from the old client within the new client.... eg just install the old client, install the new client, run a piece of software that somehow 'maps or references' the old images into the new client.
Then no copyrights have been infringed.

A simpler way is to ask the copyright holder. MUSE Ltd's 2001 settlement with Gameplay transferred to MUSE "full and undisputed ownership of the latest version of the MUD2 computer game, including all accrued rights and obligations". As the original WP client was still supported by MUD2, this would make it part of the "latest version" of the game, and therefore MUSE's property.

If you want to use the imagery from the original WP client in a new MUD2 client, or to hack the client some other way to get it to work with MUD2, feel free.

:remembers f1 and its nice font fondly, no matter how impractical it was.

Just what was that font, anyway?

P.S. A bit late, but a very merry Christmas and an equally drunken New Year to you all.

Ah sorry Richard, Didn't realise that.

I kept getting told by other people that 'the source code is gone for good' and 'gameplay(or wireplay) still owned the (c)'s to the client' and that 'nobody knew who was dealing with it'

Will do just that

Happy New Year all

The source code IS gone for good; I tried to get hold of it while at Gameplay but they'd lost it and the people who had written it originally hadn't kept it either.
