    Likewise, I'll bet George Washington was a real prick, but one never hears about that these days.

    What I've gleaned from this thread is that Drog was arrested for consuming child pornography and seppukued his account here out of respect for us. Pity that.

    Drog's gone but I'm back. How's that for small consolation?

    You know, the guy should just move into ritzy neighborhoods, so that the property values take a nosedive, then have a company buy up the neighborhood on the cheap, then move on to the next ritzy neighborhood.

    Personally. I think they should build him a shack out in the desert somewhere. Even if he has no sex drive, the general public will never, ever be happy with him around. Which I can understand; If I had kids I sure as fuck wouldn't a convicted pedo wandering around, rehabilitated or not.

    Not that I want kids, mind you. Scary bloody things.

    That's great! That's quite a burden you have taken, but we all have great faith in you. So, how far are you already with continuing his work? When will you release the next version of the UAP? You surely are aware more than anyone how you'll be in deep shit if it won't be anytime soon.

    My first order of business in continuing Drog Black Tooth's work is to reban DarkFool. Seeing as I have no banning priveleges, I'm not very far along in that at all.

    I cannot even consider beginning on the UAP until this banning is complete. If I do get around to picking this project back up, I'll start by rewriting the game engine in C# and demand assistance from the likes of you.

    C# is the spawn of the devil. Should you dare ask such a thing of me, I will find you, come to your house and unequivocally bash your head into the floor. Wasn't some other 12 year old moron already doing that?

    On another note, I'm curious as to what will happen to the patch. It's not exactly the most user friendly thing to work on.

    As Drog said at the Codex, "no new major bugs have been found and no new particularly interesting features/cut content have been implemented. If I release what I have now, it won't be very exciting/meaningful".

    It be true that he fixed all really important bugs, leaving only a few minor hardly noticeable survivors. The way I see it, fixing those most propably won't appear to be worth the effort of learning how to cooperate with the patch from the inside for anyone, so either at some point Drog will return and release a newer version or the one we have now will be the final one.

    No, I was talking about someone trying to rewrite Arcanum in C# using a windowing library or something stupid. I'm sorry, next time I shot half a bottle of spirits I'll try and rewrite my posts to the point they actually make sense.

    Besides, I haven't actually hurt them yet. I just said I would.

    You're probably right Muro, I just hate to say "final" with something a useful a this.

    If anyone is willing to decompile it, translate to C++, transfer the files to me, and then translate and compile it back, I'll do it.

    Now, when you come to my house, bring my Xiao with you.
    Then give me a bit of time before you start the bashing. :D

    The UAP is kind of like a work-in-progress without the progress. Good points made here, Muro Lightning.

    This sort of rash action is the sort of thing I've come to expect from Drog. While disappointed, I can't really say I'm surprised. Regardless, the dude did some awesome work, but he tends to fly a bit off the handle at times.

    I presumed that somebody with the patience to improve an eight year old game would be possessed of a more even temper and less prone to impulse. You all of a much longer history with Drog Black Tooth than I do. How many suspect he'll return?
