You're welcome to try this as an individual or community project, but that isn't something we'd likely have time to persue officially.2nd Post
We CANNOT OFFICIALLY convert "Gunman Chronicles to Sven" or anything else without consent/approval from the original developers.
From Wikipedia: "After Gunman Chronicles was shipped, Rewolf Entertainment dissolved and its team members moved on to new ventures. "
Sven has an "Agreement with Valve Corp." which more or less equals "Don't make SC commercial (not a problems as SC is free), not do something that will hurt Valve's profits, do not do something that could cause Valve to get sued.
The last two are the problems, it could hurt Valve profits by a "very tiny amount" and it is possible that some old shareholder of Rewolf Corp. could see any "OFFICIAL SC Conversion" as a chance to sue Value or SC. (Both are very Unlikely to happen but please understand if we cause: hassle, bad news press problems or just "waste the time of Valve employees", then they could withdraw engine rights if they wanted to.)
Additionally some SC dev's have NDA's with Valve, which could make them liable for such problems.
If someone can get some sort of approval from an "old Rewolf developer", well then it is OFFICIALLY possible. Otherwise this has to be a community project.Source: https://forums.svencoop.com/showthread.php/44559-Gunman-Chronicles-Campain-in-Sven-Co-op
I think Gunman Chronicles is ultimately owned by Valve (there was some sort of partnership I think) but it was nearly 20 years ago.The only connection to Valve is the GoldSource engine it was built upon. The custom code and content was property of Rewolf, which was little more than a mod team that was funded by Sierra. Like most mod teams, as soon as the game was released, the team was disbanded. Presumably the game and its content then officially became the property of Sierra in order to work on post-release fixes and patches. Sierra has since become a part of Activision Blizzard.
