"illegal" source code was never a thing.

RealtechVR are the ones who approached Square (or were approached by, but I doubt that) after they posted a video of their TR2 port on YouTube. It was running on a tablet IIRC and everyone was pretty impressed that this fan attempt was so good. Square just decided to capitalise on something someone had already made because they owned the franchise.

The video dates back a few years before the ports of TE1 and 2 were released.

And that's exactly what happened to TR3 port as well, RT was going to pitch it to Square but they had no interest in financing it so they just pulled the plug.

Ah well looks like I'll have to invest in the PC version.
