At this point in time, I agree. I believe that we should all move on from this big disaster and forget about it. I've learned this the hard way. If we were to move on, I believe everything would be alright as long as these sorts of hacking tools aren't created/updated anymore. You've achieved a lot with this version, 38A. You even got your own category dedicated to it on the forums here. Although I understand your feelings from a developer's point of view, you shouldn't let exploiters ruin what you've been building up to for the past few years. Despite the project being almost dead as of right now, I still use your version all the time. Even if it were to die, I'd still prefer it over the mess that's 2.0.
38A, I believe you should keep going with the engine you've created, as it has a lot of potential. I understand that updates and such can't always come out frequently, especially as of recently, but don't ever give up.
The rest of the community, please don't use anymore hacking tools to cheat your way to hidden features that most likely aren't even finished. If you had something like that and somebody decided to exploit it, you wouldn't be happy, right?
In my opinion, as long as these terms are met if it was given a try, it would work out for everybody in the end.
