QBASIC CHESS 2017
Hi all,
there is a beautiful chess game included in the official QB64 distribution..
I've also found an addition to this game by OlDosLover:

http://www.qb64.net/forum/index.php?topic=5729.0

I'd like to distribute this nice addition through my website, but first I'd like to obtain the author's permission..
OlDosLover didn't reply in the topic above, does anyone know him? OlDosLover, if you read this forum could you please contact me?
I noticed also that Anthony.R.Brown started working on the original sources.. Anthony, if you want I will distribute your program, once completed..
Please let me know,
thank you,

Pierre Blanc

@teutoburgo

First, welcome to the forum.

OldDosLover hasn't been on the QB64.net forum for three months now and there is no telling what is going on with him. I personally do not know him, but have talk with him a few times over the years.

As for Anthony R. Brown, he is no longer a member on this forum as I had to ban him for continually attacking other members. I tried talking with him through email and other means, but he refused to talk to me, and instead threatened my life. No one knows why he acted the way he did, but I wasn't going to allow him to act like that on this forum.

The sad thing is Anthony was my first member on this forum, and he was the first one to know I created it since we both came from QB64.net.

My point is that Anthony will never be able to respond to your messages on this forum, and OldDosLover has not been on this forum since 8/7/2014.

My goal is to bring joy, excitement, fun and education to all computer programming hobbyists, tinkerers, and amateurs. I also enjoy helping and working with those who aspire at becoming masters of their craft.

RE: QBASIC CHESS 2017
this is a perfect example of why i encourage people to license their programs for modification and redistribution.

its not out of being a zealot or anything. at moments like this is it purely practical. yes, its an "extra step" and seems kind of pointless at the outset, like putting a flotation jacket on feels pointless when you go boating on a lake.

it really isnt that difficult to do-- a few comments at the top or bottom of your source code, and now more people can share your work and know its alright (assuming you post it online for people to share it, of course.) there are even situations where it is not possible, without a license.

@Easylangs
Very good point.

Could you provide us with some links to some various popular licenses the community could use in their demos, apps, and games?

@Waltersmind
It's sad, but it seems their good contributions will not be able to be distributed, as long as we cannot contact them..
If there's no other solution, I think I'll put on my website the QB64 distribution's original version..
Cheers,

Pierre Blanc

@Pierre

You have my full permission to share any project of mine you find on this forum, or on QB64.net, on your site if you want. You can make all the modifications you want, but just let people know who wrote the original.

Have fun...
