      Checkmate.

      As for me, mostly down to time. It takes a while to work out the maps, scripts (plus normal NPC texts) storyline and testing. Easy to drop off from time to time.

            Waiting for mindcrystal to release it's update before I go and make mine, but I am kind of getting the vibe that it's been abandoned by the author.

                        We should all just funnel our strengths into, like... a Community Rom Hack. With so many people working on a single project, it’s sure to get finished.

                          this is one of the reasons for me, I keep starting over or redoing parts of the game because I think I can do better

                          also 10 years in there are 10 new generations of Pokémon that I want to insert and the thought of that just kills any motivation I might have

                            I think that you might have better luck with a community rom hack if people did stuff that they liked separately, and then came together at some point to merge it all into one big rom. Sure you'd get something chaotic and abstract art-ish, but that can be cool. A "how do I make this map and this dialogue and the Fakémon … go together?!" deal.

                            In my experience central planning and coordinating hobbyists don't mix.

                              Teams literally NEVER work out. I personally am one of the only scripters/asm geeks willing to help out on teams (skills in high demand on the launchpad), but never actually get to do much past setting up routines and patches, because production never gets all the way to me and the storywriters, spriters, mappers, etc never actually make anything for me to insert into the rom so I'm stuck doing nothing until everyone quits and the leader abandons the project... seriously I've been on like 3 teams and they all last like 1-2 months tops.

                              That's why I haven't finished a hack yet. Because teams NEVER work out. But about a few weeks ago I said "screw it" and now I'm finally making my own project, and already I'm further along then any of the teams I worked on ever did! :D
