    Some time ago there appeared info about some tool called FalloutX that is being created.
    Everything about FalloutX is said on its page and this topic on Shamo.
    What do u think? :)

    uh, sorry.
    I'll translate it when I have time.

    but generally it's sth like program creating mods. it's for people that aren't skilled in that

    It looks like similar project as FIFE. You can download it from here. There are three maps. In file dane.txt you can change a resolution (default setting is 640x480) and choose the map, next launch falloutx.exe.

    The project page at sourceforge has a short English description (although I can barely understand the Polish one)


    FalloutX is open source isometric engine based on Fallout 1 and 2. For now it can use graphics and load maps from original Fallout games. It uses SDL so it can be run on many different platforms.

    They haven't uploaded anything to cvs repository yet.

    I think that:
    - you'll do better by taking the current FIFE (http://www.fifengine.de) code as basis and start forking it; it uses SDL too but is far more progressed than FalloutX
    - join the FIFE team and help us working on the engine; there is no real need for yet another Fallout engine
    - you should release the sourcecode for the binaries you provide. I know that you don't host them at sourceforge yet but I guess there is no reason to not release the current code yet. Use the sourceforge SVN to encourage other people to help you working on FalloutX

    Besides that: cool to see more talented coder who are still interested in Fallout :-)

    As I said: they would need to release their sourcecode first before this could happen ;-)

    And as FIFE is already over 1 year in development I honestly don't think there is much useful FalloutX code to recycle for FIFE. This is not meant as a kind of arrogant offence but I think the FalloutX guys should take a look at the current FIFE code and think about using it as basis for FalloutX or even join the FIFE team to help us progress :-)
