you can't make a profit out of the source for any program, game, application, etc. usually.

It's over...


"Interplay essentially closes; employees wait to be paid

Interplay has essentially shut down, after moving equipment out of its Irvine headquarters over the weekend and putting it in storage. Herve Caen, its chief executive, is still counting on finding new funding to revive the forlorn game maker, known for titles such as "Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance."

Caen skipped a Wednesday meeting with the labor agency but later told investigators that he has kept payments current on medical insurance and 401-k plans for employees and anticipates money will come in soon to pay employees, said Dean Fryer, spokesman for the California Labor Commissioner.

If Interplay continues to shirk its responsibility to employees, the state can take the company to court to seek assets, Fryer said. "

UH?

The source is released for FS2. The FS1 source has never been released.

See, the source code was released for FS2, never for FS1.  but generally when the source code is released, it's for non-profit use only

Oh well RIP I suppose, unless someone does revive her. I wonder who will buy the rights and continue the franchise of their games.
