the main problem is the little support that people gives to the Essentials project
. In several points Maruno asked for help and gets no result. The Wiki is a big example with several sections still undone.
Other problem that I can see now: This great kit needs more advertising outside of Pokécommunity (and maybe in others Pokécommunity sections)! Maybe this can draw attention of more people that can help with Essentials with a mutual benefit.
When Poccil stops releasing new versions I wonder if Maruno may keep up with this big project, even I can't thing someone better. I disagree with some decisions and still disagree with some like no gen 5 pokémon (even without decent battlers), no gen 4/5 overworld graphics and the new tilesets . About this last one, despite the new tilesets are more performatic, I prefer and suggest to use the extended version of old ones that also have some RSE tiles and I can mix some tiles (example: put a ship tile in a house).
But Maruno come with good ideas and changes. He was less script skills that poccil (that I consider a genius) but was a very better game designer skills, so he can make changes/features that people wish instead of spent a huge time with features that very few people will use.
Maruno is also skillful enough to handle with some details that Poccil make (like the _I and _INTL). He sucessfull release several good versions of Essentials and earned my respect. Congratulations!

I have the same feeling. It is annoying if you help someone with a (relatively) complex custom feature and this developer ends giving up in the next week.
