1 RACER USAGE - READ BEFORE MODIFYING SOURCE CODE
2
3 The programs and source code of the Racer project are copyright of Ruud van
4 Gaal, Dolphinity, 2000-2001.
5 All rights reserved. Publishing of included material without prior written
6 permission of the author is prohibited.
7
8 Publishing of material downloadable here may however be done on a
9 non-commericial basis. In this case, I would appreciate it if you send me a
10 note regarding where you make available the material.
11
12 Use of any of the published source code in commercial software is explicilty
13 NOT allowed without prior written permission. Distributions on Linux
14 distributions (as is done on SuSE8.0 for example) IS however allowed. Use of
15 (parts of) the source code in non-commercial software is allowed however.
16 For commercial usage, licensing may be an option, for which you can contact
17 the author.
18
19 This is NOT an Open Source project, although many people think so. You CAN
20 contribute to the source if you want (or cannot resist), but all changes
21 will go through me to the master source code. This is done to ensure quality
22 and consistent style for instance. Also, parts of Racer (the QLib/D3
23 libraries) are used in other projects, and changing the source code of this
24 would be counterproductive for the other products that use these libraries.
25 Therefore, the decision has been made not to OpenSource the source code.
26 Realise that the copyrights will stay at Dolphinity, so for many people this
27 will mean that they won't contribute to the source. This is ok to me, the
28 product seems not large enough to need the whole world to aid in developing
29 (except for the contents; cars & tracks). To add to the Racer project and
30 maintain control, it is advised to create separate executables, which may
31 use parts of the source code, but are not completely separately usable
32 products. This means you can create a Replay Analyzer which uses track code
33 from the Racer source code, but that you may NOT create a complete racing
34 game based on a specific era for example, and distribute this commercially
35 as a separate product.
36
37 If you have any questions on the usage of the materials presented in the
38 Racer site, please contact me.
