So I was flown into the UK last week to visit Rare, what an amazing studio!
Had a nice lunch with one of the senior engineers, met all of the different tech departments, and got the opportunity to play some Sea of Thieves with none other than Chris Marlow!



They also gave me a bunch of neat goodies!



I hope I'll get a job there some day =)

I have yet to get models with texture and vertex colors in one, but that shouldn't be too difficult either.

These downloads are all dead because the hosting they were on vanished sometime last year - I also am not sure if I still have these locally, and if so, where they'd be. I could look for them this or next week, but don't expect anything.

Well, I DID have a copy of at least a few, I think?
IDR...but I think I grabbed them a few months ago...
Then my dad did the 'desktop cleaning' ... >.<

But, I could be thinking of some other tools, too...
Either way, all the stuff I was collecting together concerning this game or any remnants of it, is gone

I still have all of these.

Here is a nice clickable Google Drive link.

Anything else needed? I went through a Download rampage here a while ago, so chances are I have it backed up.

Cool!
I'll update that list again.

I care, just wasn't too sure what, if anything, to actually say about it. Wasn't even sure if he'd end-up learning anything new about DP, much less actually see it anywhere (if they had it, it's probably locked-away tight...XD), but...I suppose that question is always worth asking. Would also be cool to hear what he has to say about the whole experience. I didn't ask though since I'm paranoid about either de-railing the thread, or getting in trouble yet again.

It's been asked already (I've already read this section of the forum), but just to make sure, are you definitely sure whether or not you saw or heard anything about Dinosaur Planet? I'd really like to know, but not only I for that matter - surely everyone else would like to hear. It just looks like nobody has bothered or really does not care to ask.

I recognize the 'look' of the photograph - looks like the ones in the past where that statue of Sabre and Krystal are on the back of a dinosaur with the displays of video games / systems on the side. It really is a shame Miyamoto brought up one statement changing the development for good. I love Nintendo & Rare, but Miyamoto made a bad decision on this one.

It's nice though that the people at Rare (or hopefully most of them) care about the studio. Chances are DP may still be there! That gives me hope! You didn't happen to ask Chris Marlow about the defunct game, did you?

Well, if you work hard and really care much about your work, chances are you will work at Rare. What do you like doing as a hobby (besides audio ripping, etc)? Would you like to make that become a reality?

I'm not sure if I would or not (for many legal reasons), but if I ever worked there, I would probably leak the rom if it exists. I would get the job working at Rare, get the rom, leak it, and then ultimately get fired the next day. I wouldn't really do that, but sometimes I sure feel like it.

Nice share, Hugo!

Thanks guys! Unfortunately I can't share too much about my time there as I'm under Microsoft NDA - but yes, I did ask them about DP, and things sounded good. Unfortunately the lead of Rare Replay wasn't in so I couldn't ask them more thorough questions.

I was there for an internship position. I was one of the last 5 candidates, out of 200+ applicants. Unfortunately I didn't end up getting the position because of some screw ups during my formal interview. A lot of it went well, but I didn't expect some of the other questions they asked, and because of the strong competition it was a matter of points. But I received a lot of great feedback from them and they said the doors are open for a future application, so who knows =)

According to Rare and other companies I asked (Quantic Dream, Gearbox Software) my portfolio / resume is excellent - so if anyone wants to check it: http://hugo.fyi/

It never hurts to ask again, especially straight from the horse's mouth, so to speak. Ex-devs are good for getting SOME information (and occasionally source code and assets, I'm lucky enough to have managed this a couple of times). But, current employees, and ...executives are where you'd get the information of the COMPANY still having anything. This sound about right, Hugo?

Yes, it does... raises the question what happened to the statue and such, though
I'm not sure it is the same room, though?

I would hope they care. Rare's rep really has suffered ever since MS buy-out. And even their recent things don't indicate the company is technically performing...well... ignoring any "profits", since money is used exclusively to determine "success"... But, I guess we'll see. There's plenty who lost faith in them, though. Hopefully the employees still care, but the executives still make decisions, iirc... As for DP being there or not, 'officially', it was declared the cart destroyed/disposed, allegedly... Might they still have even the source code? Quite possibly, it's clear much of the stuff from Rare's "golden age" has survived that you wouldn't think would still exist. However, Big-N likely wouldn't approve of this, since they "own" SFA/DP due to that ... unfortunate decision. If rare has it, they're NOT just going to say "yes, we have it" ... that'd be stupid, and that's the only word for it. The motives for that transformation to this day are questioned... I'll bring-up some of those maybe another time, it's a text-wall, and sure to stir controversy.

I was going to mention, the legal issues in your final point do pose an issue working for Rare. I'm not sure HOW powerful corporate contracts can be, but they can waive your rights ibn so many ways it probably should be illegal. Just speculating here, but that *could* harm projects to resurrect or hack old games if their team members signs-on to the company that was making it, or owns it. In the case of SFA/DP, that line is quite blurry in many aspects.

Honestly, I can't say I'd easily be able to agree to EVERY term, most especially on proprietary code. I also plan to if, say I were told to write a DRM, that the person ordering me to do so is made to sign an official statement/document. That way, when the DRM inevitably fails, the blame is not on me except for needing to not lose by job, thus MANDATED to add the DRM, despite it being a terrible idea. I'm also trying to think of ways to undermine the "we own all rights to what you make" Especially with me being an open-source type of guy... I don't want MS/EA/Apple owning every bit of code I write, for any reason. And oh, got sidetracked, not going to lie, the ROM is definitely something I would do what I can to get dumped or re-released, if the connections and resources became available.

Yes, it is...

NDAs suck... I assume it has some insane long expiration date, right?

That kinda sucks... But cool to know the door is still open to you. Good luck finding some job.

Cool! I wish my mom would quit viewing all my projects as meaningless, I am trying to establish a portfolio of stuff I've done, or am capable of. No academic recommendation or rating will ever truly reflect what I am or am not capable of. (especially since academic environments are stressful and generally non-productive for me) Anyways, maybe I'll check that out sometime...just, cuz... as long as you're sharing it.

Welp...I think I've addressed everything I can, or see need to.
Back to doing other stuff!

If there is at least one thing I could ever ask you, Hugo, it is this...

Will there ever be a leak of the original Dinosaur Planet rom?

If you can't tell us this because of your NDA it's fine. Really, as much as I'd like to hear, "Yes", chances are we may never hear that from you. Seeing as Rare is very loving of their company - makes very much sense.

By you meaning "Good" though, I hope this means we may be able to see the original (or a part of the original) or even a remake if that's ever intended to happen. I'm just glad to hear that the news is good - but Miyamoto's idea still sucks either way.

I checked your portfolio and it looks awesome! Job well done. I'm an artist and I do some programming, but I don't know if I'll ever be able to reach your status of a programmer. What languages do you use? I've used mostly GML and some C.

Do you know Marshallgs on Youtube at all? He did some reverse engineering for the N64 and has made several homebrew roms. He's even released a cartridge (the 64Drive) which can be bought for 200 USD. You can get away with 20 USD if you don't want the case or CIC installed. Quite crazy if you ask me, but I think it's worth it. I bought one recently and it should be coming with me within the next week. It's said to be the best cart for homebrews.

I think it'd be cool to make a homebrew rom of DP. Do you think Rare would be upset if they saw a homebrew rom of their own game? Or would they be inspired and leak it? Perhaps that's too much being part of the NDA. Heck, I'm surprised you even have an NDA with them - you could've worked at Rare back in the day.

I'm much better an artist that I am a programmer.

It's probably far fetched, but could you go in and visit them again? I guess you'd need to sign up to be another intern - or do they only take one at a time like that (out of the selected few)? Anyways, it'd be cool if you could go in again and ask the lead developer. Look at my other comment I posted, it's got more info.

You're delusional if you think Hugo's gonna go against his NDA and progressing his professional career just to get inside info to bring back to his forum buddies, not to mention any "info" that you guys are giving him basically boils down to "it would be nice to have this prototype, wouldn't it be nice? gee it would sure be nice".

This is getting ridiculous.

I merely stated that NDAs suck. Also, members of my family have had NDAs used against them to the effect f covering illegal activities, so can't say I respect such contracts. I did state I, personally will find everything I can do to nullify such contracts I am subjected to. Technically, there's a few at the level of file distribution I have to deal with. I dare not breach them because I could easily be tracked down.

I don't recall giving much issue, I've explicitly stated most of what I've "found" is old news, and may or may not have been brought-up here. There are observations of mine that I haven't YET heard mentioned elsewhere, like "Introduction" seeming to appear in both one hour video and the trailer (said music piece in itself is an enigma cuz I can't find the date of origin for it!)

Have I stated it'd be nice to have the prototype? yes... Have I demanded it? Hell no, what good does that do? I have expressed combinations of discontent and partial disbelief in current state of affairs with the game, but I'm not going to force someone to do something. Quite doubt Mr. Quetch is going to force someone to either... Especially since some people are keen to take equally as drastic measures in response.

What IS getting ridiculous is people making drama and taking stuff out of context here. From what I can tell, this very thing (minus drama) occurred in this thread before. Someone also could call Hugo, himself 'delusional' waaaay back when the investigation of this prototype started because of assuming/hoping that the entire DP ROM was intact on the kiosk demo. I don't expect him to go against an NDA. I, myself wouldn't if the risks were so high, UNLESS it was covering unethical and criminal activities.

I for one, didn't come to get caught-up in such a petty argument. I came to observe, or contribute what I possibly can. I want to part in this fighting, yet I am dragged-in because I have to justify EVERYTHING I do or say, lest have whatever reputation or standing I have with the members of this community and/or its staff, blasted to oblivion. That said, can we please STOP this arguing and accusations? It's doing nothing but to make blood boil and waste time. All that's being done now is a bad example is being set for the DP fanbase, because certain people are being told to shut-up and outright accused of saying things they didn't do, or didn't say, or didn't mean to be taken that way. These arguments that seem to keep popping up are basically sending the following message: "The DP fanbase is toxic, and full of a bunch of dreamers who won't allow their fellow dreamers to dream or express their concerns/complaints, and furthermore will throw them under the bus any chance they get" I'm sick of it, I'm tired of coming back to this thread to find an argument, and I wouldn't be surprised if Hugo, himself, is now regretting saying anything at all. In his shoes, I would want to take back anything I said, since it somehow has caused conflict, rather then curiosity or the slightest shred of hope. So, can we just STOP, and WAIT till someone goes so far as to literally say "GOD DAMMIT, GIVE ME THE INFO/ROM!" ? , because no one has said that even once...

Then could you please stop replying to each and every post with what seems to be enough writing for a novel, and refrain from double posting constantly with said novels?

And if you quote someone, please shorten the quote, copying the entire post does nothing but artifically stretch out your replies, and clutter the thread.

And greet your parents from me, tell your dad to not do the 'desktop cleaning' again, and stand up to your mom.

Thank you.

Guys this discussion is utterly pointless...

The last thing I'm going to say for now is that the people who work at Rare at this moment are focused on their new IP - most of them know vaguely about DP and its history but there's no reason for them to do something outrageous like leaking a rom.

Anyways there is one question I can answer about what languages I use: I've used GML for a long time, then I moved to C# for my Beyond: Two Souls reverse engineering project (http://forum.xentax.com/viewtopic.php?f=32&t=11411), then I moved to C++ and Unreal Engine 4 which I'm working in almost every day now at University. For the rest I've used Lua, JavaScript, etc. You can find all that stuff on my resume: http://hugo.fyi/resume

Pretty much...

That makes sense
And that REALLY makes sense. Saying they even had the ROM or smomesuch, as I said, not ideal Nintendo learns such a thing. And certainly not ideal to leak it.

Hmm, how does JavaScript go for you? From my experiences it's nothing but an absolute pain to work with, and for some purposes just slow as f---

I'm at a loss for words at this point...

I could write (and have written) these 'novels' just to explain why in fact, I cannot. But, I'm too tired and annoyed to do such right now. Even flat-out double-posting I now try to cut, btw, so now naturally replying to new replies is forbidden? alriiight...

...stop the context from being lost?

i am in no control of either... my older sister won't, either... my mom is that special type of person who generally ignores input with all others, and my dad is inclined to do incredibly stupid things. I cannot afford to push her so far, because I'm already in a bad spot already. and WHY are we even bringing this up in detail??? talk about off-topic and generally non-constructive to the thread at all.

That's all I have to say, I'm ignoring this thread, now. It's gone from potentially productive/interesting to outright toxic.

There he goes again, telling us about his family, taking the bait.

Literally noone cares about your family, or how much you're in a bad spot, or anything, this is the wrong thread for that kind of stuff, and WHY are you "even bringing this up in detail???"

Yes, please stay away until you have calmed down.

They also gave me a bunch of neat goodies!



I hope I'll get a job there some day =)


That's amazing that you got a chance to go visit RARE! That was also very nice of them to give you some free goodies as well.
