Codemasters website and BoD

Postby Flash » Sat May 19, 2012 10:57 pm

I followed the tutorials to get the game but it looks like the codemaster link to buy the game no longer works.

Where can you buy the game at the present time?

I had a look at the site and it looks like they've removed all references to Blade of Darkness.

I would venture to say that it is currently impossible to legally purchase this game.

Why would they do that?

Does that mean BoD has become "abandonware"?

It's an old game and the developer has gone out of business. I guess you could call it abandonware now.
As for purchasing the game, ebay is your best place; there are literally loads of copies for sale for not much at all.

Edit: Amazon have some used copies for sale as well.

Hmmm, if the game is officially abandonware, would that mean we can release the 'Blade of Doom' mod publicly?

A google check reveals that the game does not appear to be officially abandonware although it should be as the game is no longer available to purchase other than the second hand market. I assume Codemasters will still own the copyrights to the game as they published the title. Before releasing any standalone content (or anything else that may infringe copyrights) I'd ask them first.

Free fan made mods are perfectly OK as you still need the original game to play them plus a editor was released with the game so fans could make content like this.

I had no clue that the game was released with an editor. o.o Is it LED?

Scratch that, they released the editor afterwards as a seperate download. Yes it was the LED program. File was called bladetoolsenglish.zip
