Jim is making the code freely available, it's hosted on github and it's easy to see. What Jim hasn't made available is anything containing Williams IP, such as sounds, DMD animations and so on. With P-ROC development, those are kept in separate files (so sounds will be regular old .wav or .mp3 files, for example) which he has chosen not to make publicly available.

So long as it stays that way, PPS / Williams won't have any issue since it's his machine to do what he wants with. The rules of the game themselves are not subject to IP, just the sound, animation and artwork. If Jim decides in the future to make the whole thing available, he'll either need to work with PPS, or replace the Williams IP with something else.

Quoted from Tensikka:

Please, stick in to the topic.

Yeah, my bad. Back on topic.

Jim - you're much further along with your Indy and Whirlwind rewrites than I am with my F14. Do you ever call something like this "finished", or are you likely to end up like I fear I will, endlessly tweaking things? Do you also suffer from the "oooh, shiny" syndrome where you spend ages on the bells and whistles at the expense of a good base?

Looking really good, time I poked around your code again for some inspiration

Hi Jim,

You seriously have too much spare time

Looking good, I need to dig around the font masking myself sometime.
