    Good to see LEC finally addressing the issue. Hopefully the legal mumbo jumbo won't be too off putting.

    Um... I really don't understand. Does Lucasfiles.com allow people to submit fangames such as FOMI2 or do they mean something else? I looked at the 'submit' page but got swamped by the legal mumbo-jumbo.

    Is this what you mean?

    Yeah, I've been trying to find more details about the whole thing for Scurvy as he's interested in finishing FOMI2 off. I've also got some fangames that I might upload to the site, if they explained everything a bit better.

    So does that mean now that anyone could send in hacked versions of LucasArts Games or other games with LucasArts elements? Or is that a completely stupid question I just asked.

    By the way I dont think I told you guys but I?m in Benidorm right now (Thats in Spain, if you didnt know). I just bought a Rubber Chicken (but its a shame theres no pulley in the middle }:?)
