"NarutoActor" Never said such a thing. The Philosopher might have, you should probably ask him. (but he would probably say something like, "Applying on a team thread is annoying, just look at my hack to see how I map")
Will be Pokemon Rose it's a pretty good hack, I like what they did to graphics and music. And don't forget scripting. :D
Well, all this hacks have made specific progress and have released BETA's already. And Hacks Showcase hacks can be abandoned as well. Remember that Pokemon Light doesn't have a released version yet so it can be abandoned. Or maybe hacks with BETA's already will be discontinued.
