Cool. The "mod" was always going to be freely available, and I was going to use some of the most basic core scripts, which would include the splash screen, anyway. Also, I was always going to credit you, in fact my main menu has "Built on FreeBuild" right there in the lower right. Of course, I haven't done anything on the current engine yet, for that very reason you mentioned, of it being a moving target.
I figured you would, but I thought it was important to have it written here too for other people with interest in doing the same.

just testing my post for tob forums when its back up

k well by srry for the waste of post srry for wasting 27.23 secs of yer life.
The binary is waaaaaaay too short to represent that phrase...
I find the GG splash screen vulgar. Surely, you owning a license, could get away with not displaying it, while Shiz would have to?
The Indie license requires it. The $9900 charge to remove it (and bump my yearly income cap from $500,000 to unlimited) isn't really worth it.

It's more or less trivial to actually remove the screen, and you're welcome to do so as far as I'm concerned, but I'm bound to leave it in, and if DShiznit is redistributing the binary, he'll have the same restriction.
Indeed. I would be interested to know if a mod that removes the splash screen would be legal or not.
I would be interested to know why the hell it matters. It's a few seconds, and then it's gone. Done. End of story.
