Hello everyone!

It's been a few years since anyone even tried to discuss getting original Crusader dev-tools from anyone who worked at Origin back in a day. A few names have been mentioned (Jason Ely, Mark Vittek) and some attempts have been made, but no results.

Well, are there any changes regarding the status of this issue? I mean, almost 17 years (!!!) have passed since the last Crusader game and I don't really see the reason (other than, of course, legal ones) why would anyone from the original development team refuse to give us the tools they used to develop Crusader series.

Keenan, you said (back in 2011.) that you've already asked once for source code and that you could ask again. Well - ask again, please. :)

I would not underestimate the problem of legal issues preventing former members of the Crusader team to release to the public the source code or any tools they used to develop the game. I understand that EA still retains all rights on Crusader (including its source code/tools/etc, I guess), so unfortunately I don't think the source code or anything else could be released without their say so.

Awesome! Good choice on Godot.

Sprite tool link working for me on my end, both links. Regardless, I've attached it here.
