Hello James, i have a question, does the 4c expanded rules are open source just like the previous version ?

The rules within the document are, but some of the other material is under copyright.. I will be putting together an SRD soon that will have all of the open source material from this document plus some other genre specific rules that will also be open source.

Excellent question. If it is, then Keck's only milking one teat on the cash cow.

Sort of both I suppose. I had wanted to release something like this several years ago, but due to needing to focus on family and some health issues, I had to shelve it. I picked it back up again since my oldest started showing an interest in role playing games. It is a revision of some of the original 4C System rules along with the addition of several others that were left out back then. I started working on a couple of old projects that were intended to be used with other systems, but I decided to revamp 4C and use it instead. There will be at least two settings released in the next few months that use this new version, and each will include some new genre specific rules.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
