Linux Devcenter Features MythDevelopers
7:44 AM | Tuncer Deniz | Comment on this story
Linux Devcenter has posted an excellent article on the continuing efforts of MythDevelopers, an all-volunteer group of programmers, artists, and other talented people devoted to improving and supporting further development of the Myth game series. The article includes a brief history of MythDevelopers and how they were able to get the source code from publisher Take Two to work on updates and improvements to the Myth series.
Here's a clip from the interview:
Like many Myth fans, Michael Bagnall, a 32-year-old programmer in Nashville, Tennessee, was excited when the third Myth title was released -- and then disappointed when he actually played it. Myth III was riddled with major bugs. Released at the same time as Windows XP, the game was prone to crashing on most PCs running the new Windows OS. A patch didn't fully solve the stability issues. Things were no better for the Mac version: "There were 'kernel panic' types of problems under Mac OS X, which were probably more related to the shaky state of OS X at the time Myth III was launched," Bagnall notes. Today, he leads the technical logistics and does his share of programming for the MythDevelopers team.To check out the entire article, please follow the link below.
