Making it closed source is dumb. It's not like any features you add will change the fact that vb6 is a laggy piece of garbage that you can't actually make an "MMO" with, let alone a small online game that can barely serve 20 people. There's already better engines out there for game creation that are open source. 

Not that I'm really interested in the engine. But, at least make it open source so if someone needs a few extra features to make their game unique they can. You've got nothing to lose. Anyone who can actually benefit from your code (a programmer worth their weight), will already know how to implement the features anyway.

If you take a gander at the Eclipse license (its an actual software license under the same moniker) it'll explicitly state that to close any branch you must first obtain the permission of every contributor of said source.

Something to think about. And yes, I'm aware people have done it before and even sold it (including the present "owners"; that doesn't make it legal.

Read over these and thought about it and i agree with you guys. vb6 is old and i suppose im not losing much considering i don't even use the engine so will open it up to open again in next update.

Good man. I'm all for protecting one's intellectual property, but its a double edged sword in the "open" community and it all revolves around legality/licensing.
