I have been watching the project for several months and no new news has been available is the project dead?

Is this project dead?

I really hope not. But it doesn't look good though. I too have been watching closely and there were no updates. I don't know how many people are still working on it.

Anyway I am really grateful for what they have done so far. If they decide to terminate the project I would be very happy if they released all the maps and work they have done so it wouldn't be for nothing.

I got a email reply from darth linux the supposed producer of the project that he hasn't worked on it for six years. R.I.P. Dark forces mod.

A bad news indeed. I might email him if he would at least release the unfinished maps so we can see them.

but there are some mappers that have been making new maps and very good ones! Unfortunately they said that other things had priority and they would try to complete whatever they were mapping. iirc!

I hope you're right about that but I don't think many people are left working on it if any.

Darth Linux was the original producer of the mod. this changed hands over to Darkstarmojo around 08 09 time frame and now he is in charge of the mod. Please do your research before posting threads such as this.

Sometimes a search is all you need to find the answers you seek

Still, it has been more than a year since the last update.

Plus dearth linux's exact words were "WE haven't worked on the mod for six years."

I hope Darkstarmojo and the current team didn't give up.

I'd hate to sound pessimistic, but let's be real here: With a project that was progressing at a snail's pace since the very beginning, and has not seen any updates in more than a year, the chances are very slim that we'll ever see the completed project. Don't get me wrong, I love the team and all the work they've put into this project, but I'm also a realist.

What I would absolutely love would be for the mod to be picked up again possibly by a group of college students who could all work together under one roof, face-to-face. There's just something about personal interaction that gets things done, where people working together across great distances on the Internet lacks the same motivating factor. This is why video games are always produced by tight-knit teams. There has never been a game produced by an Internet team, at least not to my knowledge.

The project is dead. Info about it is on the front page of the DF Mod website.

I just wish they worked on level 7 instead of all the other stuff they did for the later levels. If that happened we could have got another level out of the mod. :(
