Hello, I'd like to see about getting the uncompiled version of this library? Id like to setup a source project on github for community driven development and maintenance. Is there another version of this engine that is not in a single large file?

I developed MTE as a single large file from the beginning, back when it was just the tile engine for a Terraria clone. There aren't separate files. It was a headache for sure, but I wanted to avoid function calls across multiple files because they had a (slight) performance overhead and I was trying to squeeze as much performance as possible from the hardware. Developing the engine as separate files and then combining them for release never occurred to me.
You have my blessing to open source the engine, put it on github, slice it up, whatever you need to do. As long as the engine itself remains free to use.
