Well that's it right there - the catch (with further support from the team).
Anyone can do anything except it will be met with our authoritative wall
I don't think you actually know what "support" means.

There is in fact many 3d problems with the game that I'm sure your 3d artist can handle, but like I said (priorities).
Just like the coders, the artists are done working on Savage as well.
And saying XR coders have access to the source is like saying "oh it's open source (to me alone) but if you're an xr coder (which only I am) then it's truly open (insert sarcastic smiley)"
The last time it was open source (or leaked), the playerbase was more interested in making hacks and gaining advantages over one another than actually improving the game. And we have many XR Coders, so you'll notice none of them actually want to work on Savage anymore. The only people interested in the source, are people that want an advantage out of it. So, indeed, we will say no to those people.
Now there's probably a better area to discuss this, but when you look at the front page of newerth and this topic "no troll patch for you" it's a very tastless ugly topic to have pinned, and just makes me feel the development situation is sour/dire and self destructive. All the more reason to relinquish the project to other willing participants.
Cheap attempt to back out of a losing battle.
There is no development; the game is old, move on.
But the truth is, Savage Rebirth (heavily based on old XR) source is open and anyone could continue development on that and take over Savage instead of trolling forums. I've been told Rebirth is way better than XR, so it would make sense using that codebase instead. Why isn't anyone? Because, as I can repeat for your ignorant self, the only people interested want to gain advantages by coding hacks, not actually improve the game.
You somehow seem surprised that there is an April Fools patch with pointless temporary April Fools content.
I can't help you with that one; you're just whining for the sake of whining.

Nobody is being forced to develop this game anymore. If "abstract you" are not interested to develop - don't do it and that's it. The back side of this question that nobody else who could help can gain an access because most of you would say "no".
Are you actually drk? Because you're saying some really stupid things. And drk is not this stupid.
