Hi Colourless Dragon,
Thank you for your response.
No, there would not be any licensing issues, because there is no need for anyone to actually host the data on a server.
The browser can load local files, not just sites from the net. For example, if you create an html file and save it on your desktop and double click it, the browser will happily work as usual. :)
The conversion will be to the C++ code (which is Exult 's own code and not EA's) and not on the game data.
So, since no server side code is required and no hosting, no licensing issues occur. We still keep the data locally, like we do now.
What I find very tempting is the "one build to run them all" gain (as Tolkien would have said :D)
