  • FD to go open source ?

    I know I havent released much lately, just not had the time to be honest. I've been thinking for a couple of days about releasing my source to thoses that maybe able to help the project along abit. Just wondering if anyone would be interested ?

    Now guino can add that to RR to make it as internal GPS. Cool.

      As long as you dont abandon development, i guess only good things can come to it!

      Any ideas for putting a PC in this? :)

        Exactly, the problem with it being oopen source is that it is more likely you would abandon development... you have made FD what it is and I doubt that it will progress as much if you were to pull out.

        Nonetheless, the way that RR is, with guino as an active main developer is very good IMHO. Some developers (albeit very few) have been colaborating (suh as hematec doing phoco part) which have only made RR better.

            That was it...
            I am afraid that FD is over....
            Many things could be better with FD.
            But of course, CDR, if you decided to leave it, to stop it, the only thing we can tell you is "Thank you".
            I wish someone can develop it further, if CDR decides to stop it and gives the open source...

              You shouldn't have a guilty conscience just because a bunch of people are whining about the lack of updates, so if that's the case then don't release it.

              If you want to release it for other reasons... Cool !
              Then I can have a crack at heading sensitive speedcams, assuming that:
              1. You haven't done that allready.
              2. I'm included in the group of "thoses that maybe able to help the project along abit".



              Oh... babisbabis, shut up will ya, no one said anything about anything beeing dead.
              Funny though, "babis" means baby/infant where I live... but then again, that's kinda obvious from all your crying

                Oh, maximus i think you haven't read what i wrote. Or perhaps you are not able to understand! Maybe that's why you wrote these c**p!
                And, "maximus" means ******, where i live. Dont missunderstand me, ok?

                  Beeing a bit of an retard (given my Greek name that is) I cant say that I do understand how things like
                  "That was it", "I am afraid that FD is over" or "decided to leave it, to stop it" could mean anything but "buhuuuu".
                  Nor could I find anywhere where Steve/CDR said that he would stop coding on FD or that FD was "stoped" in any way.

                  In case you havent noticed, projects do tend to slow down over time.

                  Personally I see mostly good things from going open source, the only thing that worries me a bit is how it would be done.
                  Just releasing the source would probably result in a million different versions of FD all with their own gimmicks and features.
                  If Steve wants to release his code to the "inner circle" then that's just fine, then we'll have a small group that is "responsible" for the future releases.
                  The third option is to make a sourceforge project of it.

                    Ok Maximus, your name doesn't mean retard or something...
                    But you were a bit (a lot) ironic....
                    We'll see what CDR will decide.
                    I guess there is no problem...

                    Also, i wrote before:
                    I wish someone can develop it further, if CDR decides to stop it and gives the open source
                    So, things aren't so black, as you blamed me that i said, crying...!
                    Cheers!

                      WTF guys, dont crap this thread please... FD going Open can be a great thing, lets leave this thread for this possible positive outcome, shall we?

                      Maximus, I think the latest alpha has something in the area of speed sensitive speed cams! I got it installed just wasnt able to test it just yet....
