Hey! This is Woah with the 2009scape development team.
My fellow developers and I take pride in our work. Seeing 2009scape, a project we work on daily and put our heart and soul into, being sold really saddens us. Instead of contributing and helping out the open source community, certain members of the RuneScape private server community would rather be selfish, make minor edits to the revision 530 RuneScape cache and turn around and re-sell it.
As you may or may not know, 2009scape is licensed under the AGPL license, which requires not only that we keep it open source forever, but that anyone making modifications to it, hosting it, or redistributing it also publish their full, unmodified source code. This license has been in place for at least a year now, including when this Insidious project was started using our codebase. Ceikry, our lead developer, has already spoken with Bmxisradd and Its Bandos, and they agreed to drop the project knowing that they were going to be violating something we pour our hard work, blood, sweat, and soul into.
We know that the RSPS community is not used to having open source projects around, and that for a very large portion of the community, open source is completely unheard of. But what you are trying to do here goes against the very spirit of what open source is and what it means to so many people. I'm sorry you didn't get paid for your work. But you shouldn't get paid for this work. Not only is it in direct violation of Jagex's copyright, you also did not do anything impressive or particularly significant. Additionally, it was "built" off the foundation laid by myself, Ceikry, and many members of the 2009scape community who have collectively poured thousands of hours into this project. None of us get paid or ask to get paid. In fact, the project outright refuses payment and donations of any kind.
To this end, I'm releasing your changes free and open source, how it should be: here.
If anyone would like to visit or contribute to the 2009scape project we moved from Github and are now situated on Gitlab.
