Hello Boris;

Today is the first day my new computer is online. I've been having a
forced vacation for quite a while now. Sorry for the delay.

The legal situation is gray at best. The ownership of the LOL
intellectual property is slightly confused, with EA most likely owning all,
but Virgin (or whatever it has become) owning some residual part. Neither
of those parties is interested in continuing the series, or in re-publishing
any of the old titles, but neither are they even interested enough for a fan
group to be able to obtain legal clearance to make a new game. They don't
want to waste the time to even discuss the situation. So, when you make a
new game, it is unlikely that EA will start any legal proceedings until a
large number of copies of thwe game are sold, at which point they would
probably seek a restraining order and agree to some sort of negotiation. I
have sent a few e-mails to various EA friends about this situation, buit
have not had much of a response. I will press a bit further, but cannot
promise great success.

Hmm, I'm not sure, but I thouht the main religion in Gladstone was at
least Christian-like, probably a similar religion based upon the earthly
appearance of a divine avatar, and then built up into a religion base upon
priests, churches, regular worship services, and a quantity of ceremonies
and pomp.
I think the Gladstonepopulation had no trouble maintaining belief in
multiple religious realities, both human based, such as the religions of the
monasteries, and greater god based, such as the belief in the Draracle, as
well as assorted pagan and good vs. evil (dark army) realities. Ha! What a
lot of overlapping, conflicting, and awkward religions. And yet, I think it
was a religious belief based upon some supernatural events, but mostly
common sense. Religion is natually a very complicated issue I think.

So, we should avoid using copyrighted elements as well as easy with lol associatable ones. As we are not heading for a commercial release, we wont get trouble then =)

... I think the title is actually copyrighted, and the characters are sort of copyrighted, but not specifically. Anyway, unless the ganme is a mega hit, EA won't say anything is my bet. And if it's a mega hit, they'll want to
hire yiou to make some more. I wouldn't worry to much about them, but I wouldn't expect any cooperation, or even a return of an e-mail....

Hello Frank,

I‘m back online with my new computer now. Boy is it painful to be computer-less, even for a few days.
I‘m happy to see your progress with the game. I don‘t think it‘s such a good idea for me to participate, and it would be better if you continue as you are doing, with me only answering a question here and there. I‘m really busy, and also, I‘m a big bully, and I like to always get my way. I don‘t want to make your project into my project, it‘s better if you and your fellow fans have the fun of making your own game.
I do still very much enjoy hearing of your progress though.
Ciao,
-Coco

Howdy Frank,

Unfortunately, EA is much too busy to talk to us. I don‘t think there‘s any way to get them to enter into a conversation about LOL, much less let us use any assets from the games. I‘ve tried, but my two good inside EA contacts say it‘s more or less impossible to talk to anybody who has authority about this.
Then, there‘s the problem of the assets not existing anymore, except in the form of the assets on the game CD‘s. If there are audio assets that you can crack on the CD‘s, I‘ll bet you can use them without needing approval.
Best of luck,
-Coco

Hi coco,

could you talk with ea about allowing us to use files from lol1 to 3?
File like sound effect-files like ‚waterfall‘ or ‚open door‘ and ‚close
door‘, background music, icon-pictures, ...

In the end, the game will be free to get and we will not get any financial
profits.
We will not hack any westwoodfiles, we only will use a program to unpack
the landsoflore-files, which INO is made by westwood and which you can get
in the internet for free.
But it would help us very much to reach more originality of the game.

The music-files we would convert from vqa and wav to mp3 or ogg and
pictures would become tga-files, if that would interest the ea-people.

I hear from you? ^^
Frank
