More on DOOM 3 Source Release

John Carmack tweets more about the upcoming release of the DOOM 3 source code, indicating he is rewriting some code for legal reasons: "Lawyers are still skittish about the patent issue around "Carmack's reverse", so I am going to write some new code for the doom3 release."

@SirKnight You are absolutely correct.
That's why.. Let me see if I understand this:
Carmack is going to write new code that effectively does what his old code does, just not in the way it did it when he originally shipped D3.
So in effect, he's writing new code for the masses so the company doesn't lose money on OOOOOLLLDD software that nobody would use to make a game today.

Okay, I can see how that makes sense coming from a company that released Rage and then instead of releasing a patch they released this statement: 'Wellp... Worked on our machines..'

God Carmack is cranking it to our buttholes daily. The day he quits yapping his trap is the day gaming gets better.

Oh yeah. Well... at least he's not Molyneaux
Seriously. He could be Molyneaux.
