I'm not sure if I should post this here but I found your updated wz2100 on the Microsoft store for around $1 and under the name of newnoldsoftware.com.
Just not sure if its you guys or not, they look the same.

Yes, this is the same game.
I don't think it violates the license. The source code on his website are very easy to find.

And the license does not prohibit sale of the product. :roll:

There can be only approached from a moral point of view. He's trying to cash in on someone else's work, even though it is not prohibited by the license.

Need protection from the server.
It would be nice if the next official release had a unique access code to the server. And the server could write a warning to the client - this program is not secure and is not an official release from the developers. something like this.
In big letters somewhere below - THIS GAME IS COMPLETELY FREE.

It is not the same game, it is clearly modified, because website link in the main menu is modified, as shown on the screenshots above.

So how do you plan to prevent people from copying the unique access code?
