"You can use ANY accessible tools or methods to beat this game, including calculators, search engines and other people. However, cheat engine or so-called 'debuggers' are NOT allowed."
1. I didn't get any profits from this project.
2. A lots people ignore my rules of bug reporting and feature suggestions.
3. They paid no price and made no contributions and make a ton of suggestions.
4. I add minigames as a punishment, but some people hacked it.
5. So this is the result.
You. 38A. What is wrong with you?
You, spent a bunch of time reverse engineering a dead engine, actually did work people were impressed with, refuse to have any sort of positive relationship with other teams who have done the same thing you have, get passive aggressive with your work and the community behind it, and then just straight up say screw you all for getting disrespected, took your ball, and went home?
People DEFENDED your work. People argued on end why your work was better. People went so far as to insist to others that it'd get better, that you would support both your work and your community, that you would care for what you did. You had an actual community of people who thanked you, respected you, and defended you. If THAT doesn't make you satisfied at what you did, then why even waste that much time? I'm not even going to talk about how many times you've made mistakes. I'm just going to say you seriously need to reconsider your life goals if you wasted so much time on this, which you are kicking to the curb because you hate people.
I'm not going to take a stance on the hypotheticals; things like, "How passive aggressive were you really?" and, "Did you seriously make this to make money off it?" All that pales in comparison to the biggest issue you have, that everyone here now sees. I don't care about your reputation. I care about your actions. And there is no mystery to this latest action.
So I'm not going to ask any questions that go on about the details of your mistakes. I'm going to cut right to the chase:
Why did you even do this?
Please redeem yourself by explaining at least this. The more you run away, the more guilty you are.
You owe this not to me, not to anyone who you see as your enemies, but your community, the people who posted on this very subforum. You owe THOSE PEOPLE an explanation. A real one. Not this, "I'm done because of these reasons," half-hearted excuse for being the most irresponsible programmer I've seen in a while.
