(Redirected from Quasar)

James "Quasar" Haley is a longtime member of the Doom community, best known as the lead programmer of Team Eternity, creators of the Eternity Engine and WinMBF source ports. He is also a Doomworld moderator and Doom Wiki administrator.

From 1999 to 2008, Quasar was a central figure in the Raven source code licensing campaign, which sought and eventually obtained the release of the Heretic and Hexen code under the GPL.

Quasar also developed Chocolate Strife, the addition of Strife support to the Chocolate Doom code base through a four-year intensive reverse engineering project, alongside Samuel Villarreal (Kaiser). It is still an ongoing project as of 2014.

In February 2011, Quasar spearheaded the proposal to move the Doom Wiki onto its current hosting arrangement at MancuNET. Since that time, he has stepped up his administrative activities and takes responsibility for most backend maintenance tasks. He also codes the wiki's customized version of the Monaco skin.
