H&D Deluxe source code

Unread post by kubapet » Sat Apr 19, 2014 3:20 pm

Hello everyone,

We are considering to make some improvements on H&D 1 Deluxe engine and multiplayer game. Is there enyone who knows if it's possible (and eventually where) to get source code of the whole game?
Should we ask 2K Czech, or who is currently the holder of the rights on the game?

Any advices are very welcome.

Hello there kubapet,

Welcome to the forums. I have asked about this previously, a year or two ago but had no success. hdmaster here on the forums has been working on a number of tools for the community, he has a vast knowledge, I would suggest contacting him first.

My thoughts are that H&D Deluxe is a lost cause, it has too many technical limitations that can't be overcome without the source code and that is very unlikely to happen any time soon (maybe in 2019 when the game is 20 years old!). I'm currently looking into the Unity engine (primarily because I'm learning C#) and it is actually pretty amazing what you can do very easily. I'm trying to prototype a H&D clone. Developing a new game engine that uses all the available H&D Deluxe assets would be ideal then moving on to something new.

Following up on this, looks like the source code for H&D Deluxe is available here: https://www.rprclan.com/forum/hidden-da ... e-released

Seems to have the DTA source code as well although I don't know how useful it is for H&D 2 :)
