You guys are each working on different engines/viewers? Why not just pitch in and aid in the development of a a single Xtreme recreation?
We could do - I'm not sure on cooljerk's intentions, but mine is purely learning about the format etc. Then using it in a game, optimising etc. It's the challenge for me that's interesting, getting the bits that the viewer doesn't display working, making the level playable.
As said I'm not promising the community anything with mine, but I'd like to think that my end result would be a level editor and an engine to play the levels with. Maybe even clean up a few of the more incomplete levels and make a short xtreme game. Who knows but I don't think it's fair on cooljerk for him to wait around while I'll play and experiment!
I do think that us sharing information works well for the community though as both of us will have strong and week points, and the more heads working out a problem the better...
People like me and Xeniczone most certainly benefit from people like you for this type of game project.
We rely on people with your expertise for reverse engineering to get the information we need for a reconstruction project like this.
seems in a since were already a team with a working hierarchy.
If this weren't the case, our and other projects of the same nature would end up being something totally different.
In the end, raw Data is what matters, being it either an original or reconstruction project
