    Still doesn't change the fact that there's not much reason to play a game on my Switch when it's mostly ports of games on other platforms, or ports from the Wii U that make sense, but why not port all of the Wii library as well? You'd think they'd be able to re-adapt all of the games with motion controls to work better than they did on the Wii. Now there's some ports that have some sense to be made if such an endeavor can be undertaken with success!

    No one is. If they got Github to nuke the script that contains no copyrighted work, then I'd be surprised.

    Can't wait for a native Perfect Dark port on PC! Since Rare refuses to port over Rare Replay.

    Goldeneye too, I'd love a switch port seeing as emulating it is still pretty bad performance wise

    yesh they have mich better games but they still have a major problem with production their franchises go like a decade before they make a new note worth title and the gaps between the good games of a franchise just keeps on expanding

    They decompiled the game, took the Engine source code and stripped anything that would be considered theirs. They basically took the classes, methods, etc and rewrote them and made it better. It's still the same engine, just better.

    I got my copy, but I can't play it yet because I am on Windows 7 and the program requires DirectX 12. Doesn't matter though, I back up all my PC games anyway.

    Of course in a way, I'm just saying that what's left should be different enough for Nintendo not being able to claim it.

    Barring an interoperability defence (there are allowances for reverse engineering for the purposes of interoperability) I don't see how that would be a thing from this project. Code is eligible for protection just as any other creative work is and this is Nintendo's code (or a derived product thereof that is functionally identical in terms of the end result). At very best you could put a diff from a known baseline so it is only your changes to the code that get shared and someone gets to provide both the ROM and the baseline source code.
