Just sent a message to David Polfeldt at Massive

He's a contact on LinkedIn...

Okay... So this is what I wrote...

Hello David,

I'm involved in our "religious" GC group, GCVets.wordpress.com.

We're starting to talk about trying to preserve GC. We're having troubles with Game Ranger, the service which allows us to connect through GC's lan-hooks.

We tried contacting Rebellion UK, which owns the IP now (bought in a "fire sale" manner from a liquidation of Vivendi games, I believe). They didn't get back to us, but they put up GC, as-is, on Steam. Still no way to play multiplayer other than through GR.

We've modded the game for "balance"... mainly to make Crayven more powerful, as our house-rules generally don't allow air units, which makes Crayven underpowered, ground-vs-ground, in open terrain maps. "Stat", our member who coded our mod, is trying to build a replacement for GR, but it's not that easy...

Access to the source code could allow us to hook through the old WON.net multiplayer hooks. But I think that would require access to the source code... and we're now wondering if the source has been lost.

We have some solid people in our group, who could manage this, inicluding "Whiteknight" (a lawyer from New Jersey), "Nox" (a media professional, from Spain, who runs our blog)... I've got a project Greenlit on Steam now... (www.PrepareToDrop.com)... Plus I've done a lot of Youtube videos on GC... (https://www.youtube.com/user/TheSandTab ... helf_id=10)

I think I can say for the group that the years of intense gameplay we've gotten from GC are proof of the depth your game has...

Any help would be really appreciated. Thx,

Tim

David got back to me with this message...

Hi Tim,
On Jun 5, David Polfeldt said the following:

Since Rebeliion owns the IP, the future of GC is entirely in their hands. Keep hammering at them!
