im so lazy and i hate inserting tiles

I insert tiles you make everything else (^:

But yeah, making a good hack rom requires time an effort, people just get tired or just don't have the enough time.

cuz nintendo paid me not to cause they were scared theyd never be able to sell their own games after

true story

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.
