Default Community request to EA regarding BF2 source codes

hi guys,

im kinda sick of readin the word "hardcoded" on this forums. everyone knows - especially the devs coders - how annoying the bf2 engine can be. how about forming an kinda official request to ea, signed by as much community members at possible, about letting us have the source codes. i dont get why they havent released it yet, since the engine isnt in use anymore. i know the 2000 signes we get at a maximum arent much, but its worth a try.

regards, skull

It has been many, many times.

I seriously doubt it's going to happen.

lol, for some reason, I thought this was your first post.

You say "the engine isnt in use anymore" but that's just the point. BF2 is still widely played but EA would prefer people to go out and buy new games. If PR extended the life of BF2 even further by essentially 'fixing' the engine or completing it with all the goodies we'd like, why would we bother with new games?

It's not in EA's interest at all as it's not going to pay off for them in the long run.

We're all pretty alone here in the PR world on that sort of thing, but just look how cozy and comfortable we are.
Don't you worry your pretty little head, PR2 will be all ours to enjoy and cherish.

I WAS on that road, but EA's changed, it seems, since 2009. I kinda feel like their doing something different, perhaps better. But I don't know yet.

Also, releasing all the proprietary code means that their competitors could use it as well (perhaps not in a product for money, but enough to suck cash from EA), and in general it's just a bad business decision. It's just not going to happen is the deal really.

Even if it was a small thing?

I would understand not releasing info about kit requesting.. but what about... hate to say something small like fastropes

my point was more about things like bullet/hit registration, map glitches (dying because of a stone on the ground) and so on
