Five days ago I found this EaW Files interview
http://empireatwar.filefront.com/news/EAWFiles_Exclusive_MikeNL_Interview;41367

Since the answer to question two is that to make the mod tools the files were reverse engineered isn't that going against the part of the EaW license agreement because in the section of what you can't do, point seven says "reverse engineer the software, derive source code, or otherwise attempt to reconstruct or discover any underlying source code, ideas, algorithms, file formats, programming or interoperbility interfaces of the software by any means whatsoever, except to the extent expressly permitted by law despite a contractual provision to the contrary, and then only after you have notified LucasArts in writing of your intended activities."

so according to how the mod tools are made and what the license agreement says aren't mods breaking the license agreement?


Thanks,
please explain


This isn't an accusation, this is just me trying to figure something out.
