Crystal Caves Source Code



Does the Crystal Caves source code still exist? I searched for it on Google, and this is all I found from an interview with creator Frank Maddin in 2005:

Is there a chance that the source code of
Crystal Caves and Secret Agent is going to be released?
(from memsys)

I suppose there is always a chance, if I could find
    the pieces. And it would involve Apogee.

EDIT: After more thorough searching, I found these:"crystal+caves"+source"crystal+caves"+source

Welp, I guess that answers that.


Yeah, from a purely legal standpoint, you can’t release what you didn’t create or have a license to do so.

Those precompiled libraries would likely stop it from being released, but I also haven’t looked into it in a decade. Not sure what the legal aspect of that would be in 2016. :slight_smile:


Crystal Caves totally needs more love :wink:


I wonder what those precompiled libraries do.
Displaying PCX graphics? Smooth scrolling?


I’d have to ask Frank. I wouldn’t know.



I loved Secret Agent as a child and I’d like to do a remake.

I found this little gem and given I’m also a jvm dev I’m gonna try to give it a refresh and make it more modern and rich
