1) Open it up only to about 10 to 20 trusted individuals first.
He won't find that many. Neither 5.
You won't know until you try. I can say for sure that at least one person would be interested... me! :D

there is already an opensource soldat project and lots of ppl showed interest for it however not many have done anything except showing interest.

I know that, zakath, I haven't been living under a rock. Really, though, that project doesn't interest me because it's starting with no code base. I want to help improve the current game instead of remaking it.

He already has... but what does that have to do with open sourcing Soldat?

Sounds like he thinks "make Soldat open-source" just means "make Soldat free to everyone"

Sorry, I was going to tell: Adware  ::)

I know what adware is. I just don't understand what it has to do with open sourcing Soldat.

Oh, are you answering MM's concern?

I think he wants a registration component in Soldat regardless of whether he keeps it to himself or makes it open sourced. And he's already advertising a lot anyway, so your suggestion doesn't really bring anything new to the table, I think.

Just funny to mention it took seven years to bring us to 1st quarter of 2018.
