It's not up to Bungie, it is up to 343. Seeing as they are still using the source code for products that are not even on sale yet, I think it be unlikely they do it.

t

Seeing as microsoft's whole bag of money has been and still is derived from the original halo's source code, I am at a conflict as to why they would release such rare and precious info to a few old modding fans.

To put it into context, why would a company as large and profitable as MS give you the tools they used to extend there reign upon the fps shooter market?

Never the less I have still signed your petition and wish you the best with it.

Don't bother kid. Like flanker explained what you are trying to do is the impossible. There have been other attempts in the past to try to obtain the source code, none succeeded.

It doesn't help that Bill Gates and Steve Ballmer were both against the idea of Open Source. If the pattern remains true, then the new CEO is against it as well.

I remember kornman once did tried to contact Gearbox and Microsoft to ask if we could get the original code.

Also a guy named 'INSANEdrive' once got into contact with a Principal Engine Programmer of the Halo franchise Team at Microsoft. http://www.modacity.net/forums/showthread.php?23825-The-Halo-PC-Engine

Sadly there is not much else we could possibly do to convince them. I doubt a petition would even reach microsoft.

Tbh, if that's the only reason you want the source code released, i would not want it to then. If you want better graphics and gameplay changes, there is Halo 2,3,odst,reach,4,5, etc... The stuff CMT is doing, ie making halo clones all while ruining what makes halo 1 halo 1, is not some thing i want 100 other teams doing, even if 99% of them fail as they normally do.

Well, to be fair, someone ported the PC versions of Stars Wars Jedi Knight II and Jedi Academy to Android, which are far more complex, control wise. Those ports have been doing just fine.

I did sign, it doesn't hurt to just do it. you never know, it almost for sure wont happen, but who knows? Im honestly hoping H5G is truly a new engine and they wont pull a COD Ghosts on us...

Also about the porting thing, yeah, I do want halo on android, I've even asked a couple times if we can prototype Installation 01 on android...

It's probably the worst OS to develop a game for, even Windows Phone is preferable. Android hardware is all over the map.

I personally am an android guy though, I hate iOS (most of the people who buy them are stupid teens who dont know how to take care of ANYTHING) and windows phone is something that im not sure about ever getting, it seems ok but the idea of using whats basically Windows 8 on a phone seems strange to me.

And you good sir, have proven yourself ignorant. The only reason I stick to iOS is because of design simplicity. It's a phone. If I wanna call somebody, within 2 touches I can do it. If I want a game, usually within 3 I have it. When I need a camera, I have it in 2. There's no reason for over complication. And software restrictions set by Apple can usually be released with jailbreaking.
Seems like it's a bandwagon to hate on Apple these days. It's not that there's anything wrong with Android or Windows. Some people just like Apple's method of presentation. (Ain't nobody gonna buy a phone that's a grand though. I'm sticking to my hobo price range.)

P.S.
That source code release is never going to happen. You should probably get over it and move on.

You petition is kinda pathetic. You gotta come up with more than that if you want anyone to take you even serious.

Did you even look at other petitions?

People still think they are going to release the source code?

From experience I talked to everyone who has dealt with halo, Bungie, Gearbox, Microsoft Games, 343. None of them have the original source code. Lets just debunk it right here forever. We will never get it.

You act as though this community needs the source code, but it seems that you only want it so that it can be ported to Linux. We may be mediocre fans, but you appear to be just motivated by self-centered ambitions.

I do not want to turn this into a fight, i said "mediocre" because I'm being attacked by cavemen, I just posted a request for help many developers, This community does not need the source code...why? Because children prefer to play to help the developers,just a Linux port no bsd solaris etc...

It seems that you finally understand that you should not have posted this here. The majority of this community are not developers nor Linux/Unix users, and as such you should not expect to get much support from us for your petition. You need to realize that you've caused this "attack" upon yourself.

If you want to play halo on linux, it works perfectly fine through wine.

Who cares if the hardware is everywhere? It's not hard to set a minimum requirement. Eg, the nvidia shield. What's worse is apple ignoring everything else out there and only supporting it's only little bubble world. In any case you could just use UE4/Unity/etc which supports android so you don't have to worry about any of that.

You're right the truth,but i did not cause this attack,else i think it's more easy make a free game than wait for microsoft release the source code.
