Since Hovertank recently changed ownership it's no longer for sale on virtualsoftware.com. The new owner told me he plans on releasing it when he ports it to windows, but didnt tell me when or on which venues. Confused

Who bought it?

GOG has already said 'no' to it, from what Blzut3 said. Sad

Richard Mandel said that a German guy bought it, I could pm you his email address if you want. Come to think of it, currently Abrams Tank is the only way to get a similar clone to Hovertank! Very Happy

No that's OK, was just curious.

There's also Demon Hunter, which I think is the first Hovertank mod. I never finished the Blake Stone / Hovertank mashup mod that I used to test HDC.

Yeah, Demon Hunter, I tried asking the guy who made it if he was going to make it standalone but didnt get a reply. Wouldnt this be a great excuse to resume development to HDC?

Well, I'm not sure I need to resume development of HDC right now. I mean, it CAN be used to make a mod. Smile

All of my old VB6 projects need to be rewritten from the ground up using a modern language, either Java or VB.NET, since those are my main languages nowadays. I'd lean slightly more toward Java, I think.

Yes, i know, in fact, it was very useful in making Abrams Tank. Smile I think I'd like vb.net better, since i dont like java.

Yes, it's true, I bought the rights to Hovertank 3D. However, I don't remember that I made you my official public relations officer Evil or Very Mad

By the way, when are you finally going to release the source code to Abrams Tank, as you're forced to do, when you compiled a new executable from the GPL source code of Hovertank 3D?

Just asking because you posted the following on your Steam Greenlight page:

@wolfwhips: You're already selling it here, though, and under GPL, the source needs to be provided either with the software, or I think a link to where the source code can be found online is also acceptable.
